I have some xvid files downloaded onto an external hard drive. The files will not play on an HP laptop (running Windows XP, using Windows Media Player), two Toshiba laptops (one running XP the other Vista, both using WMP), but it will play on a Compaq (running XP and using WMP). When the files don't play, it says there is a codec error and will play the audio portion but not the visual.

Anyone know why?

Thanks.
