    I have a Sony Handycam and cannot view the videos on my son's Windows XP with
    Windows Media 11. However, I can view them just fine on my Windows Vista with
    Windows Media 11. We want to be able to have the videos on both computers.
    Why can I view on one and not the other. I had to uninstall my operating
    system recently so perhaps I am missing some valuable software.

    What's the file type (file extension) of these videos (AVI, WMV...)?

    What exactly goes wrong when you try to view the videos on the XP system?

    It's likely that the required decoders for playing back the videos are
    not installed. Open one of the videos in GSpot -
    http://www.headbands.com/gspot - and note the audio and video codec used
    in the file. If you report back these codecs here, we will probably be
    able to point you to the decoders that need to be installed.

    Regards
