Unable to see video on Windows Media Player

When trying to play videos recorded from my digital camera, all I get is sound. No video shows. I had no problems on my previous operating system. Can anyone provide me with some insight?

What format does your camera record in? Try K-LIte.

That can have problems with syncing audio + video. Use a dedicated codec.

Thanks, I downloaded the codecs, but still all I get is a still picture and sound, but no video. Also, Windows Media Center opens and plays sound but the screen is all black.

Do I have to change the settings in the Settings Application of the codecs to fix this?
Please help!!

Are your drivers up to date?

It woulld be much easier to help you if you would help us by:
A. Filling in your System Specs on your User Control Panel, and
B. Tell us what the make and model of your camera is.

Thanks!

Okay, I filled in as much as I could semi-understand.

I don't know what it means if my drivers are up to date, sorry.

Also, I've realized that its not just files from the camera that aren't playing. No video clips/files will work. Such as ones received in e-mail, etc. Windows Media Center is completely useless right now.

It all worked before Windows 7, however my dad went ahead and tried to download it himself (improperly) and now I'm stuck trying to fix everything. (This is my parent's computer)
