avi error- MMSYSTEM263. This is not a registered device.
Posted on 2000-02-28
I'm at wits end trying to get avi files to work again in
Win95 (4.00.950 B). I have uninstalled and re-installed the latest version of media player a few times, ditto for DirectX. I have uninstalled and re-installed the multimedia devices, codecs ad nauseam. Now I find myself lost in the middle of the woods without a map back (the Bill Witch Project?).
When I try to convert a file from my webcam or from PowerGoo to an avi file, or try to view avi via a browser on the 'net, I get the error:
MMSYSTEM263. This is not a registered device.
When I try to play an avi file from my hard drive on media player that I know is not corrupt, I get:
Cannot play back the file. The format is not supported. (Error=80040265)
I am running a P200MMx, 64mb wintel pc.
I have tried the remedies suggested at the microsoft 'help' sites.
Now I turn to you.... HELP!!!!
Thanks in advance for all assistance.
