Answers :

This means that you don't have the proper codec to play the file. Think of me giving you a shovel if you never saw one you wouldn't know what to do with it. Same Idea here. Just find out what the original driver was and who made it and google around a bit. I am sure there is a version for XP somewhere. Usually codecs are packaged with your driver software hence the double edge sword here. If you don't feel confident to find it just give me the model number and Ill do some research so we can get that computer of your the ability to blare some tunes.
