Hi,

Normal avi's play fine.

I'm trying to play an avi file by MGI who produce the VideoWave program. Their avi files are giving me problems.

Initially I got the error "vids:cvid decompressor missing"

That has gone away but now I get

MCI Error
MMSYSTEM006 There is no driver installed on your system.

Could someone tell me where I can get the particular drivers that stops these error message.

TIA

Hi Alan!

I take it that when you use Microsoft Media Player to open an audio-video interleaved (.avi) file that you create using Microsoft Camcorder or another similar program (MGI?), you receive the following error message:
 
   MMSystem006 There is no driver installed on your system
 
This problem occurs when Media Player cannot find the Gdicod97.drv file in the Windows\System folder. The Camcorder Gdicod97.drv file contains the information (called codec information) that allows another program to decipher the .avi file.
All .avi files contain codec information.
 
The MGI software should have a codec with it, however there may be a codec available at the MS free software download site.

The initial error you had with the decompressor missing is probably adding to the problem. If I recall correctly, the error you probably received went something like this.

When you tried to play a video (.avi) file, you received either of the following error messages:
 
   MMSYSTEM006 There is no driver installed on your system.
   -or-
   Cannot find vids.iv32 Decompressor.
 
This problem occurs on a computer running Windows 95 if there are incorrect entries in the [drivers 32] section of your System.ini file.
 
Make sure that the following lines exist in the [drivers32] section of your System.ini file:
 
   VIDC.CVID=iccvid.dll
   VIDC.IV31=ir32_32.dll
   VIDC.IV32=ir32_32.dll
   VIDC.MSVC=msvidc32.dll
   VIDC.MRLE=msrle32.dll

Try to find a codec on the MS download site or directly from MGI and check the info above against your system. If you need more, let me know.

Best regards,
Dennis

Hi,

Found out I was missing

VIDC.CVID=iccvid.dll

Now the program works.

Could you tell me where I could get the gdicod97.drv
and what I would need it for?

You can email me the answer alan@alanlam.demon.co.uk

Thanks.

Alan: You can try Microsoft's free software download site. It's part of Microsoft's Camcorder software.
