C00D1199: Cannot play the file
Windows Media Player cannot play the file. You might encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:

The file type is not supported by the Player. For a list of file types (formats) that are supported by Windows Media Player, see Supported file types.
The file type is supported by the Player, but the file was compressed by using a codec that is

not supported by the Player.
The file type is supported, but you are trying to play it in a way that is not supported by the Player. For example, you might have tried to drag a DVD file with a .vob extension from a DVD to the Windows Media Player icon. Or you might have tried to open a .vob file by clicking Open on the File menu.
You are trying to play one part of a multipart file. Use a newsreader or other program to combine the files, and then try again.
Error ID = 0xC00D1199, Condition ID = 0x00000000

I had a very similar problem last night.
Firstly,have you uninstalled Nero or Roxio ?
If so,you may think about reinstalling and see if WMP works...When uninstalling nero,i lost a codec....This was a problem i had a while ago.

Last nights problem was with my power dvd.This is how i fixed the problem:

Start >My computer > Right click on The dvd/cd Drive >Properties > Autoplay >

You should have a box possibly saying play music files....Scroll through the list and select dvd movies.

Try this and post back.

You need the correct codecs. We need to know the exact format of the movies that you are trying to play click here may help.

You can also download MPEG decoders from Microsoft. Here's the general links:

click here
The link says to download both.

Like Vog says,the Codec error is essential to repair the problem.

Normally you will be alerted to the missing Codec...IE: 45 69 etc

What is the format, or file extension (like .mov etc.), that you are trying to play?
