I accidentally deleted all music of my computer, MP3’s, WMA’s etc completely of my P.C. I used a program to get my music back, only to find it says one of two things, Specified module cannot be found or The file you are attempting to play has an extension that does not match the file format, Playing the file may result in unexpected behaviour. Is there a solution to making these files play again, as I have around 2000 songs that are not playing, I don’t want the headache of having re-download them all again & there are some rare songs that cannot be replaced, any help would be greatly appreciated...

if you have the files but they wont play on any media player you can change the type of file they are by going to my documents\tools\folder options and then uncheck the box that says “hide extensions for known file types” then all the files will have ".???" at the end of the names. you can then change the type by renaming the last three letters to WMA, MP3, AVI, ect. hope this will help. reply

I had problem with playing Video files, after changing OS on my Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop from Windows Vista to Windows XP Pro.

After installing DivX free download (got the link in this forum), able to play all the video files. Best tool fixed the issue. reply

Salutations,
This is for those of you who are having problems with the picture not playing on your video files with WMP 11 and DO NOT have SAMSUNG installed:
I had the same problem. When I first downloaded WMP 11, it played everything fine. I uninstalled some things and now it doesn’t play the pictures.
What I found out, was one of the programs I uninstalled was all my DIVX stuff. Download the lastest free version DIVX player on DIVX.com. I did and now WMP 11 works fine.
Hopefully this will help some of you too! reply
