I can think of several reasons:

1. The file you are trying to play is corrupted. Try playing a different file.

2. The sound driver is not installed, or is the wrong driver for the hardware.

3. Some other piece of software has grabbed the sound output device and won't release it.

4. You are trying to play the file with the wrong player. Maybe it has the wrong extension.


hi midimagic
any file i play does the same, never used to just happened over night.
