I don't think WMP11 will play mp3 files unless an additional Codec is installed. The reason for this is Microsoft's nepotismic approach to life ;-)

I apologise to Bill, not so. I have just played a couple of mp3 files in WMP11. I apologise to you also iashem as I miss-read your post [mp3 instead of mpeg], sorry.
Mpeg is a video file which will required an additional Codec.

Hope no one else is following this thread ;-)
I have just played mpeg in my WMP11 as well, so it must be a problem your end iashem. You could check with MS for updates [under Optional on the update site] for WMP11 or you could try re-installing WMP11.
