When downloading a movie from the internet windows media 9 says 'error downloading codec'
Can anyone tell me what this means & how I can sort it so I can view & copy movies?

I can't answer your query, but I suggest you close this thread and repost in the helproom ;-)

"do not discuss anything "illegal" here
download movie form net is a illegal activity"

Bit of an assumtion there me thinks, no mention of illegal downloading was mentioned, and for your information there are hundreds of sites on the net that you can download films etc free of charge and legally. (public domain)

Back to the question:

It means you need a particular codec in which the movie was encoded.I suggest you download one of multi-codec packages available from sites like this:

which will enable to view most things you're liable to download.
