I could tell you What The Files Do But What Ever You do, Don't Delete Them. But You Would still Be in The dark As to Their Funtion

Also You should Know That Media Player is a Big Drain On Your CPU. There Are Better One's out there, Like VOL Player That Will Play Any Type Of Media that is out there.

All so There is One Called BS Player From The UK.

Good Luck


p/s: If Your Going to Use Media Player Then Down Load The New Media Player 10 It is Much More User Friendly
