    A few days ago I updated an old machine to WMP 9 and now there is audio but no video at all it is just a black screen and the seek bar is moving acroos but nothing there. I don't think this would have anything to do with upgrading winDVD ...or would it?

    It could just be that you don't have the latest codecs installed. Try installing the Kazaa Lite Codec Pack (basic or full, it doesn't matter) and see what happens.

    Yeah you need Codecs anyway! Wait what OS are you using?

    I'm running XP! Would it make a difference on the codec considering there was the previous media player installed before updating to 9 and all the files worked before updating?
    OK I installed the k-lite basic and it still is black w/audio and no video. It is weird it's like it is playing with the scroll bar going across, but all there is, is sound!

    Because you can't play DVD's in WMP9 on 2000/ME/98. That feature is exclusive only to Windows XP users (Just wanted to lay that out for all those computer users out there using an older verison of Windows and have a DVD drive)
