Problem viewing mpegs

  Dazwm 11:44 08 Feb 2004

I have burned some mpegs to cd that I want to keep. Problem is that I have formmatted my hardrive since and when I try to play them they won't play and makes the wmp "stop responding" and freeze up. Why is this and how can I rectify it?

You may not have the correct codecs installed; do other mpegs play OK for you or is the problem only with those on the CD? If others play ok, try copying from the CD to the hdd and see what happens.

Also, try going to Windows Update and see if you can get any relevant updates for MediaPlayer.

Done all the updates and it seems to take forever to copy to the hd.

How big is the mpeg file? Does it work from the hdd after copying there?
