Got this yesterday for no apparent reason. While playing a file got the message that it has a problem and stopped working. Keeps doing the same after about 5 seconds every time I run it. Going to try copying the WMP files from my laptop to see if that does any good. Microsoft help is as usual full of useless advice. Just wondered if anyone had any ideas In the meantime will use another media player Many thanks

Update- Just tried MP4 and no problem. So audio files only. It fails with .mp3 and .wma.

Looks like it's sorted. Ran the troubleshooters and it plays mp3 and wma now.
