I have purchased a CD-ROM that plays movies to demo certain things.When I click on a link to play one of the movie demos I get this message
"Cannot determine the device type from the given file extension.."
I have WIN XP o/s , Quick time and Media player , can somebody assist please ?

What kind of movie file you want to play?

Crisis over , some idiot forgot to check the system requirements on the CD-ROM case before purchasing , and subsequently loaded a CD-ROM into a Win XP machine when the case clearly states Win 95/98 or ME.
However all is not lost as I will blow the dust off my old Win 98 machine and resurrect its weary mechanism(it'll give me summat to do).
I am now just grateful for the chance to rebuild my life !
