    I had a computer school burn some video clips on a CD for me.
    It autoloads and plays fine on my workplace computer.
    My own computer has Win 2000 and I installed Windows Media Player 9,
    which seemed to go smoothly.
    When I put the CD in, it wont autoload.
    If I click on Run, I get a message "Insert disk"
    If I click on the the icon for WMP, the screen comes ok, but nothing happens if I click Play
    The notation says Battery Randomization.
    I tried a different CD with some digital camera video clips, that I know plays on
    another computer. When I click Run, WMP goes through the motions of playing the
    video, but all I see is a swirling light splotch instead of the clip.
    Is there an installation step I missed?
