    can not vidoe file in xp

    hi i have xp pro
    512ddr
    instaled nero 6.3
    win media player 10
    was able to play this files on my pc before(last week)
    since then had little crush and had to reinstall nearly everything (learnt to back-up since first hard disk failure )
    now when i try to access file it says that
    can not play the file access is denied.0x8070005
    i am logged under administrator.
    file us in shared folder and some of them are in the other folder.
    this are video files (avi etc)
    any suggestion?
    my thinking:
    maybe no suitable codecs?
    maybe need configure this 2 players to play this type of file?
    since the crash i installed sp 2
    thnks

    Have you tried to open the file elsewhere? Is it possible it got corrupted when you backed it up?

    I do not have a current link, but try "Irfan view", it is a sort of multimedia viewing & management tool. If it cannot open things, it does give you some helpful error messages.

    At first sight, I suspect you may not have all the codecs you need?

    Cheers
