I'm using Windows 98 Second Edition.
Pentium 133
IE 6.0

Whenever I receive e-postcards with midi files attached, the midi never plays.
Anyone have any ideas?

1) Check that your sound card is Midi enabled . See the SOunds applet in control panel as well as the multimedia applet.

2) Try manually playing a midi file.

3) download the newest drivers for your sound card.

4) Do a Start- windowsupdate to get any relevant patches.

What sound card and hardware is this ?

I hope this helps !

Another thing you might check is this:  see whether there is a program associated with MID and MIDI files:  start up Windows Explorer, click the Tools menu, then Folder Options, then the File Types tab, and click on the MIDI entries to see whether you have a player associated with these file types.
