Files in MY MUSIC will not play

  1. Not sure if this is the right place for this but I'm sure I will be corrected if necessary.
    Problem: When I double click on a file in MY MUSIC or SHARED MUSIC it refuses to play (It used to) and I now get a warning dialogue box stating "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an assocation in the Folder Options control panel." - How please?

    All music plays OK in Windows Media Player (that with the acceptable file type anyway). Hope someone can point me in the right direction.

    See if this helps.

    Click start/all programmes/set programme access and defaults. Click on the custom button, under "Choose a default media player" select Windows media player and click ok.

    Regards Howard :)
