    I had been getting this error checking voice mail over a secure site
    with WMP 10 (XP SP2, IE 6)
    It would say "connecting to media" then bring up a box that said
    "reached the end of the file"
    uninstalling 10 and going back to 9 fixed the problem. downloading the
    file and playing it from the desktop worked fine.
    so did using firefox.
    I was able to continue to use IE after making a change to the following
    registry key

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Multimedia\WMPlayer\IEHardening

    that key was created by the WMP 10 install and was givin the dword
    value 00000001
    setting that to 00000000 fixed the problem for me.

    hopefully that helps out someone else
