Hi Christy, Thanks for your interest; I have spent all afternoon trying to correct this glitch. Yes I do have the latest version of Windows Media Player 7.1. When I checked some of the sites that have sample audio files, they require quicktime or realtime as players. Interestingly enough, when I click on the audio file, Windows Media Player comes up instead of quicktime or realtime players. It seems as Windows has somehow overridden the other players. Does that make sense to you? Again, thanks for your help. ----- Original Message ----- From: Christy <snowz@xxxxxxxxxx> To: <24hoursupport@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Monday, August 05, 2002 2:27 PM Subject: [24hoursupport] Re: audio > > Good afternoon Lu > > I think you may have hit it with your last comment > "Haven't made any changes to the system" , If I > recall correctly (and I could be wrong) Windows > Media player just had an upgrade of sorts ?
