    I have been having a similar problem but all my audio
    files are mp3 and ask to connect to download the 55
    codec, whereas all the songs are the same bit rate and
    the same format. shame on u microsoft!

    :p Microsoft didn't and can't cause that error. 3rd party software you
    installed could, though.

    That means that your MP3 decoder has been broken by something that you've
    done to your system. The easiest way to fix this should be to find the file
    l3codeca.acm on your system, rename that file to l3codeca.bak, then go to
    WMP's Help:Check for Updates and run that so WMP can replace the
    l3codeca.acm MP3 decoder WMP uses.

    That should generally fix it up, depending upon exactly what 3rd party
    software stomped on the decoder WMP uses.
