What format is the movie? avi? mpeg? divX? If you know that, then do a search on google for a relevant player - many are free.

im not sure how 2 find out the format but it has tmd movies beside the line artis

OK - the movies should have a name and an extension - such as movie.avi or movie.mpeg

Can you tell us the name of the file when it is downloaded? Or at least the bit after the . (i.e. avi).

Or point us to where you are downloading from - that we someone may be able to help.

most of the files r avi some r wmv

where did you download the movies from? was it a file sharing prog by any chance? like kazaa? if it is first of all there is the copywright issue. and if it says 'tmd movies beside the line artis'
it is certainly a pirate rip of a major movie.

alot of people who use kazaa, put false file names on their files so people will upload them from them thus increasing their participation level.

many of the movie files are just blank large files that people put on to get others to upload large files from them.

not to mention they could contain a virus

be very careful

thank u for ur advice yes they r form kazza and it looks like u could be right about the blank files because i done as above and they still did not open could u give me a site that is reliable and can u tell me how to get the stuff i have downloaded of my comp thank u
