    I have a fairly new copy of MCE 2002 with the upgrade rollup to 2005, no
    problems during installation and no missing devices in hardware manager, but
    for some reason the recent content i have from Bonfire/Puretracks will not
    play on any form of Media Player. Currently running Media Player 10 with all
    available windows update patches and have the windows media 9 codecs
    installed as well. (these files play fine on a second pc running windows xp
    pro with no extra codecs installed that i am aware of) The error recieved is
    the one below...
    You've encountered error message C00D10D1 while using Windows Media Player.
    The following information might help you troubleshoot the issue.

    Codec is missing
    Windows Media Player cannot play the file (or cannot play either the audio
    or video portion of the file) because the 161 codec is not installed on your

    The missing codec might be available to download from the Internet. To
    search for the 161 codec, go to the WMPlugins.com Web site.

    After installing the suggested files from the WMPlugins site the same error
    repeats, including after reboot. Any suggestions would be appreciated as I
    would prefer not to have to steam media from two independent PC's through my
    360 as it appears to not allow for simultaneous awareness of more then one pc
    on the network, not to mention the media centre version is the obvious choice
    based on its connections to my home av setup etc.

    Do a search within the message boards for "161 Codec in WMP10?" There are
    many posts about this issue.
