Can't Play wma, wmv , dat files

I had Windows Media Player 10 and was able to play all the above files. Then I installed BSPlayer and then when I don't need it anymore I uninstalled the program. After this I could not play wma,wmv files while the dat file can still be played. Thinking perhaps some file was deleted, I installed Windows Media Player 11. The files still could not be played. I rolled back the installation and am back in WMP 10.

One technical group advice installing WinAmp as WMP10 is buggy. So I did but I still could not play the above files.

Any help in this matter is very much appreciated. Thank you.

So do you want help playing video files in WMP, or are you going to install Winamp?

Seems like he wants help with Winamp - but it seems that his problem is system-wide and not restricted to just one application.

I would recommend re-installing Windows Media Player 11 from here.

You may also want to select "See all Windows Media Player cownloads" and then "Codecs Installation Packages" to reinstall just the files which should enable you to play WM files.

Thanks Matthiew for the help.

I'll reinstall WMP 11 and see what happens.

May I know where you could access the menu option :

"See all Windows Media Player Download"


With gratitude,
Chiong

Look in the right pane of the web site I linked to for the WMP 11 download.
