I have some AVI files downloaded,only one of them has changed to a media player format,this is the only one that will play,why have the others not changed.

Why should they change and why has only one changed? Its ridiculous that WMP will not play AVI files without downloading a codec pack such as klite http://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm

The fac that 'only one has changed' suggests that these files may be torrent related, awaiting their completion before being able to play them. If this is not the case, and the files are not infected with any viruses, then as FruitBat suggests, you may simply need the correct codecs installed in order to play them-if you dont want to have find which videos require which codec individually, then try the K-lite codec pack
