AVI file playing fast.

My neighbour, with his "New" Canon camera, filmed his child singing, we copied it to my PC .
(Winxp home), with a view to putting it on CD for him.
When we played it using Windows Media Player, the picture runs fast but is excellent, and the singing is very fast.
There is an option for speed, Fast, Normal and slow, but we cannot get voice to slow down enough? any ideas please?
On his camera everything is excellent.

This is a link to the Nimo Codec Pack. Install this and all should be ok. READ INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY!!

Sorry about that. I clicked when I should have clacked (?)....I was going to report that I am using Window Media Player 9.0
When I play this .avi file it runs fast, but on occassions white I am clicking through the menue bar the file, and sound runs perfectly, but when I close it and start again I have the same problem, fast running.
This happens on any of the suggested alternatives you have given. The file itself is not important, its just very nice.
I think I'll call it a day and leave this as unresolved (unless you have any other ideas?)?the
