I am failing to play files with .mov extension. Windows media player says it can't play them. Quicktime says codec not found. Any suggestions?

Try uninstalling / reinstalling quicktime get the latest version from the quicktime site

Try Realplayer - I prefer playing them on that anyway as you get more control.

Can you get Realplayer for free?

You might prefer click here which is not nearly as intrusive at the real Real Player

Thanks to all - have tried Realplayer, and alternatives, but still no joy.

It sounds as though they might be corrupt.
