can not play sound files: error = 0xC00D11BA: Cannot play the file

Windows 98SE; Windows Media Player 9; 256 ram;

Do not know how this happened or what I may have downloaded to cause this.

0xC00D11BA: Cannot play the file
Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. You may encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:

Your sound device is in use by another program. Quit other programs that may be using your sound device, and then try to play the file again.
Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see the Sound Troubleshooter in Windows Help or refer to your sound device's documentation.
You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device, and then try to play the file again.
Error ID = 0xC00D11BA, Condition ID = 0x00000000

http://www.google.com/search?&q=0xC00D11BA finds others that have fallen into this issue. It seems that Microsoft might be enabling DRM or codecs are failing in WMP 9 or DX9b.

You may have to go back to what worked for you in the past.
