The solution to your problem is in the article here:
"Err Msg: MMSYSTEM266 The Device Could Not Be Loaded..."

Let me know if you need more help with it.
That simply means that the system does nt have the driver/codec installed, and is therefore incapable of playing the file
re-install the program that allows you to view these movies, or reinstall windows if you wish
