Default wmp problems

i got 2 albums here and they both worked fine with wmp (11). about a day after i got them they stopped playing in wmp. one of the albums plays perfectly on vlc but the other one refuses to play at all. its still showing each mp3 as about 4mb so i dont see why it shouldnt play if it did before. i dont think i have any viruses and crap as i usually check. any ideas?
the rest of my mp3s play fine btw

Ahh thought you were coping from a CD or something. So you got these from a site?Maybe They are corrupt or something, what error messages are you getting? And what site are you using.

no error screens popup? It would only do that if its not a supported file type, a 1 second song, or WMP is messed up. Try updating the codecs for WMP first. Then try redownloading the songs it may just be corrupt or has a certain virus on it.

sometimes if i open it full screen the mouse will go a bit slow as if i dont have enough ram or something. it did this before i formatted recently aswell. maybe its generally buggered. ill try updating it and having a fiddle. that still doesnt explain why my one album randomly stopped working and doesnt even play in vlc (vlc plays pretty much everything)

edit: ok when i go into full screen on the right if i click on the song i tried to play it does give me an error message. just the standard "we cannot play this file, might be the wrong file type, try updating the codec...". it appears my wmp11 is up to date and what codecs would i need to download. the files are just standard mp3s. nothing special :S

I know thats really wierd, Its probably corrupt or virus infested , redownload the song and check for any new virusus. If It happens again then I would really just reinstall the WMP or something.


You may want to fix post 2 now that it is gone.
