  1. This is the problem

    - I have WinXP SP 2
    - I installed K-lite codec pack
    - And even with that i cannot play MIDI files, not with Windows Media player, not with Media player classic nor with winamp
    - Curiously I can play them on Quicktime but...
    - I don´t want to use Quicktime...

    ¿Which could be my problem?

    MIDI are instrument files, not realy a proper audio file hence why you can't realy play it on a normal music player. You can use Cubase, Reason, Protools (kinda), Quicktime (as you've mentioned) or any other player/music editor that supports Instruments and MIDI format. Give Audacity a go... but i havn't tried it myself yet..

    Sorry for taking a while to respond..
    So i assume all other audio types work as per normal then..

    try reinstalling your audio codecs:
    Device manager open the tree to Sound, video and Games controllers
    Remove anything relating to Audio devices/codecs
    Reboot the PC and let windows reinstall it.
