    When did you rip them and was it on the Vista PC?

    If you ripped them on another PC and the default settings of
    WMV with copy protection where on then you will have
    problems playing them on another PC.

  3. Yeah, I ripped 'em on my Vista PC just a couple days ago.
    And then I found out they would not playback at all. All that plays on the
    WMP11 are the sample tunes that came installed with WMP11. BTW, I can play
    DVD's and CD's thru WMP11...I'm just having problems ripping and playing 'em
    back from my library.

  4. Hey I just found out that changing the WMP11 format from WMA files (none of
    four types would work) to MP3 files and re-ripping my test CD actually works
    and plays now. This can be done by accessing the WMP11 "Rip tab/options" and
    changing em' to your liking. However, I have tons of WMA files on WMP11 and
    it would take forever to re-rip all my music....so my system tech. also
    suggested downloading
    WinAmp player and importing all my WMA files from WMP11 into WinAmp (which
    BTW is a "freebie") and this worked to perfection. I can now hear, play, and
    all my WMA files on WinAmp player and forget about WMP11 until Microsoft
    comes up with a "patch/fix" for this problem in WMP11. But now that I'm using
    I may not go back to WMP11 since it seems to have tons of options and
    goodies too.
    I guess time will tell.
