    I am having trouble getting my Windows Media 9 to play music which is stored in the Media Library of Windows Media 9. I am getting a dialogue box stating an error: OxCOOD1197. I have followed the instructions to given to correct it, but to no good. This problem is related only to music stored in Windows Media 9. Music directly from a web site may be played with no problem. The problem that I am having has began since changing over to Bellsouth's DSL. However I do not know that there is any relevance to that.

    I am using:
    Dell Dimension XPS T500
    Windows 98 SE
    Internet Explorer 6
    Bellsouth DSL

    Cannot Play Music! Try uninstalling and reinstalling the Media Player.

    I have just completed a "uninstall" and have downloaded a new version of Windows Media 9 for Windows 98.
    Result: No change. Whatever I attempt to do causes the dialog box to appear which refers to OxCOOD1197.
    A strange thing as happened though. All of the songs that were stored in the Media Library before uninstalling the original version, have reappeared in the new download. I would have thought they would all be lost in the uninstall.

    Does this mean that there is no fix for the problem?

    you may find what you need below. I found that here.

    C00D1197: Cannot play the file
    Windows Media Player cannot play the file. You might encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:
    Your computer is not connected to the local area network (LAN) or to the Internet. Connect to the network or Internet, and then try again.
    The path to the file is not valid. If you typed a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) in the Open URL dialog box, ensure that the file name is spelled correctly and the path to the file is correct, and then try again. If you clicked a link on a Web page, the link might not be valid.
    The server is not online or is busy. Try again later.
    Some network protocols in the Player are not enabled. Enable all network protocols, and then try again.
    The proxy server settings for the Player are not configured properly. Verify that your proxy settings are correct, and then try again.


    To enable all network protocols
    On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Network tab.
    In the Streaming protocols area, select all the protocol check boxes.


    To verify your proxy server settings
    On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Network tab.
    Verify your settings in the Streaming proxy settings area.
    Note

    If you do not know what your proxy server settings should be, on the Network tab, select a protocol, click Configure, and then select Autodetect proxy settings or Use proxy settings of the Web browser (available for HTTP protocol only).

    Thanks for your effort to help. I have already been through the list of corrections offered by W.M. help section. Matter of fact I've done them about 4 or 5 times just to see if maybe I had made a mistake.
