and others. See www.download.com for any free converters to MP3, or download WinAmp.
Try opening these WMA files with CDplayer.exe.
Don't know why Windows Media Player would stop playing WMA files unless it got messed up, especially since you never got a dialog box wanting you to get online to Microsoft to download updated Codecs.

For years I have enjoyed my CD copied to HD music and all of a sudden my music is dead. There is no HD activity when I select the file. Looks like my files are all WMA format and I don't recall if they were other formats and one of my programs converted them to WMA.
All my controls on the Volume Panel are ''on'' and set for max volume.
When I play any music CD in my CD drive it goes to Microsoft Media Player and works as it always did in the past. Also the Programs-Accessories-Entertainment-CD Player works OK.
Is there a location where the default player is set or is this a Register problem?
Thanks for any help to wake up the Fat Lady and get my HD stored music back.
