    I have encountered error message 80040240 while using
    Windows Media Player. Is there a solution for this error?

    I try to open a movie with .avi file extention and an
    error message appears saying "The media type of this file
    is not recognized".

    I am using Windows Media Player 9 series on Windows 2000
    and have downloaded most of the available codecs, which i
    thought might help, but the problem is still not resolved.

    Please help.
