When opening a MPEG with Media Player version 6.4.07.1112 I am confronted with an error saying I do not have audio hardware installed. I am using a Dell Latitude XPi CD machine with a ES 1888 Plug and Play AudioDrive (WDM) sound card which work with all other applications.

Wiallen,

Check to see if the hardware (Sound Card) is capable of playing such files. Make sure thet the SOFTWARE for the hard ware is installed and not just the basic drivers from windows is making it work. (Meaning that whomever installed it just let windows pick it up and it works). Make sure the card that you have selected IS the card that you have.
Obtain the latest drivers for that card and put them in your self. Drivers change all the time. By the time you go to the store, to buy something that just came in, there have allready been 3 to 100 updates on the manufactures site to eliminate problems that have arrised. Always use the manufacturers software over what Windows tells you (Personal Opinion)

If the drivers for the sound card are loaded, but the manufacturers software is not installed, you may THINK your sound card is working, but it will only play basic windows sounds and a few other basic sound file types. It is the manufacturers software that gives you all the extra trimmings that make the card do other things, and gives you all the options.

This may not be the answer for your problem, but it has helped for many of others, and it is still something to check for in your problem.

Leme know if this helps.
