what's the OS running the media players?

if it is Windows, right-click My Computer and choose Manage to open Windows management console, then from the left pane locate Windows System Logs, now check if there are any hardware related errors occurred when the problem happened (per the time line), such as disk read error?


BBao it started working :)
