WMP10 Cannot play Radio

  1. Hi. I like MSN Radio, but I cannot use it. Ever since I fresh-installed XP, I haven't been able to listen to it. Everytime I try to, I get the error saying

    Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.

    I've tried tons of stations, and NONE of them work. Also, it won't play MPEGs. It gives the same error. It's set for the default player for ALL file types. Is this fixable?

    did you reinstall all drivers and such when you reformatted? upon the installtion of mp10, you are given choices as to the settings for supported file types. you may have to reinstall mp10.

    I have all of the latest drivers installed. I was given a choce for the file types, and I hit select all.
