you may have the latest version of windows media player but you might not have all the patch updates that microsoft has put out. If I get this error or symptoms it's always a codec problem. A little while ago microsoft released a codec set for media player just use your windows update function to get them. If it still isn't playing then i'd download a additional set of codecs which you can pick up at www.divx.com (http://www.divx.com)
