This error can happen for several reasons; insufficient permissions, network connections, missing or corrupt files or even because a file or folder is being blocked by Windows or by your antivirus application.

You have to download a file to your computer first. Any files Windows Media Player uses has to be on your computer (or portable device). If you are wondering how to open a Windows Movie Maker Project file (MSWMM) in Windows Media Player, you can't. A Windows Movie Maker video project has to be Published/Finished in the program first, before you can play it in Windows Media Player. And too, the file you are trying to open in the player must be compatible. In other words, Mp4, QT, MOV (to name a few) will not open in the player since the proper codecs are not installed on your machine.

The CD software does not install a driver for your player. No additional driver software requires Windows 2000, Windows XP or for Windows Vista after connecting the player to the computer via USB. It will be recognized automatically as a "Removable Drive". If you are unable to find the device under My Computer, you should check with Microsoft for any updates to your operating system by visiting Connect your player and if the device is still not recognized, try these steps below to manually install the driver. Go to the Control Panel Choose the system icon Select the Hardware Tab Select Device Manager Open the tab for Windows Portable Device; Make sure you see your player there! Right click on the Device to update driver Click on Install from a list or specific location Click ' Don't search, I will choose the driver to install' and then select next Click on USB Mass Storage device and then next Now the MP3 Player should come up as a separate drive in My Computer. It works thank God!!!

On Windows XP as well as the default Windows Media Player 9,there are also two hidden older versions of Windows Media Player. These are Windows Media player 6.4 that can be found under file name Mplay2 and Windows Media player 5.1 which can be found under Mplayer32. And some people prefer the older versions of Windows Media player to the latest version Windows Media player 9,10 or 11 on Windows XP.Or Windows Media Player 11 on Windows Vista and Windows Media player 11 or 12 on Windows 7 and Windows 8. Windows Media player 6.4 Mplay2 does not work on Windows Vista,or Windows 7 or Windows 8. It only works on Windows XP. But Windows Media Player 5.1 Mplayer32 does work on both Windows 7 and Windows 8 and also on Windows Vista. To install Windows Media Player 5.1 on Windows 7 or Windows 8. you need to have a Windows XP computer. Then on Windows XP you need to go to Windows/system32 folder on C drive and copy the mplayer32 exe file to your Windows 7 or Windows 8 computer. Once you have copied the mplayer32 program file onto Windows 7 or Windows 8,copy and paste the program file in the Windows/system 32 folder. Windows Media player 5.1 Mplayer32 is now installed on Windows 7 or Windows 8. And will play video and audio files without any problems. And will run alongside the latest version of Windows Media player Just like it does on Windows XP. And the above method also works for Windows Vista.
