    I'm aware, BHarder, that WMP9 is a little behind the times, but I generally don't do "upgrades' unless there is a doggoned good reason to do so. In this case, there isn't.

    Like Browni, "I'm not...
  4. Windows Media Player plays some .wmp files but not others

    Yep, my Windows Media Player 9 is willing to play some .wmp files but not others. I can't think of any reason why WMP would behave this way unless there is there more than one .wmp file spec out...

    Wake up that "corrupted" flash drive...

    Many, if not most, flash drives are made to sell cheaply, lacking in quality one way or another. If you have one that seems unusable for any reason, just try it in a different usb port or in another...
  9. Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't think I can do that...
