when i try to open the video,s i have taken over the years with my camcorder windows explorer open saying there is a problem and needs to close.i have traced it to the above.i have saved these video,s in avi format as there is rather a lot and it is only when i try to open an avi file i have this problem.they are saved to my external h/drive and they play without a problem on other comps.any ideas please.
thanks for the help on this the add and remove buttons are grayed out.Turn on DEP for essential Windows Programs that,s the one that,s selected tried changing it made no difference.i tried right clicking one of the files to see if i could get it to play through a different player,but as soon as i click on any of the files windows explorer jumps in saying there is a problem and needs to close.thanks again.
just a thought are you trying to play the file through the player or from the external drive. it may be an old file extension/ library type issue. try playing it from the drive,thats why it may work on other comps just a guess though julius
thanks again i transfered a couple of the files to my cdrive still the same.now this gets even stranger they play without a problem on vista,which i have on dual boot.been trying to sort this out for over a week now.way past doing my head in stage.lol.
