    i downloaded a movie and it is an AVI format. I have tried widows media player, nero, divx, real player and power dvd. All them start and the timer is going but there is no picture and no sound. I thought maybe that i downloaded a bad file, but what is taking up all the space then. I have been reading in the forums for over a hr and i am more confused than when i started and i didnt think that was possible. Could someone please help me??? i have also downloaded numerous other files and they are all the same.

    desperate newbie

    when using gspot it tells me that the file is a divx5 file and the codec is installed. but still i get no picture or sound.

    Just as i thought, your problem is your downloading copyrighted material, thats piracy and you will not get help with this topic, that moive isnt even out yet so i doubt you have a working pirated copy but either way what your trying to do is illegal.

    hi merlin,
