    What software are you using as your default media player?

    Whatever it is, try upgrading it to the latest version. In other words, if you are using Microsoft Media Player, go to Microsoft's site and download the latest version and see if that fixes you up.

    It is also possible that it was just a codec that you were missing, and in downloading the latest version it has some codec updates.

    Anyways, glad that helped and you are back in action!
