Ever since I got a new laptop, music ripped from CDs to media player will not play and I get an error message that says 'wmp encountered a problem trying to play this file.'
I have sought advice on windows help and forums etc. and have checked that audio drivers are up to date. Troubleshooter said I have configuration problems - I assume this meant with the internet so I changed it to 'automatically detect settings' but none of this has made a difference. I also don't see how internet could be an issue - when ripping cds I have been able to get album info through wmp's connection to internet.
Please note: this error is the same for ALL ripped music. Downloaded music plays fine.
Any help much appreciated, thanks.
