Windows 7: WMP12 Missing mp3 Codec

27 Oct 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate
WMP12 Missing mp3 Codec

Ok so this sort of confuses me here. After a fresh install of windows 7 I am able to play mp3s for a while.. When in a explorer window of a music folder i chose the built in button to play all. After I hit this button only one song came up on my playlist. After trying to choose a different song i am unable to play any mp3s It says that the player might not support this filetype or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file. These are standard MP3's that were ripped in WMP11 on my vista machine.

I have tried to uninstall and reinstall wmp but this has not resolved the issue. I have also dugg in my google resources and read something about a registry error. this instructed me to typw in a command line run as an administrator "regsvr32 wmp.dll"

I have run out of options and I do not want to do a full reinstall as that is the step that i seem to notice everyone else doing. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

* I would also like you to know that No other application has been installed that has anything to do with music or video.
