    Hi guys,
    Using my desktop pc (Windows XP Professional), I copied songs from my cds to the computer thru Windows Media Player and then moved all the songs to my portable hard drive.
    I connected my hard drive to my laptop (Vista Home Premium) and tried to play the files thru Windows Media Player. Unfortunately, WMP 11 did not play the file but opened a Mozilla Firefox window leading to a site that would ask me to download license.
    Upon clicking the 'Download License' button, I encountered the error that said I had to install Windows Media Services plug-ins.
    I searched for this plug-in and found out that it was associated with WMP 9 and not WMP 11 so I thought installation might cause conflicts or might create more errors. I'm not so good at computer and I don't even know which to install when WMP website gave me too many options and downloadables.
    These make me so frustrated and I don't even know if I could still copy my songs from my hard drive to my laptop and play them.
    Could someone please help me out? Please...

    Hi Kenny,
    Thank you for this media player. The link failed to download the file but I successfully downloaded it from download.cnet.com.
    I have installed the player but I still encountered errors.
    I'm thinking that Vista is too strict that it won't allow you to play your ripped songs/cds.
    Kindly see the attached file for the screenshot.
    Whew.. :(
