Windows 7: MP3s don't play in any media player!

MP3s don't play in any media player!

Hey guys,

For some reason when I download an mp3 to my computer it does not play at all! I've tryed using all sorts of media players from itunes to media monkey, windows media player and quick time. All of them just show the song in the play box, but it doesn't start playing. Even when i click pause and play again, it just stays at 0:00. I've check my audio drivers to see if if they needed an update and they were fine. What's going on?!?!?

Note: it's not the mp3's fault. I've tried mp3s that are stored on flash drives and all sorts of downloaded mp3s.

Media Player Won't Play Old CDs
I've got some CDs which I bought in the 80s and they are in excellent condition. However, WMP12 won't play them. They play slow and jittery. Ripping is out of the question too. Newly menufactured CDs are fine. Any ideas?

Why wont the media player or the media centre play MP4's?
Is there a good reason why MS don't equip either the media centre or the media player with the ability to play MP4's. I don't see why they can't play them,and surely it would be in MS's best interest if they could play them.

Neither Media Player nor Media Center Will Play DVD
Hello all. I can't get eithe WMP or MC to play a DVD. I've set the region code. WMP acts like it will play, but then just goes blank, and MC says it cannot play the DVD.
