    Open them with GSpot to find out exactly which codecs you need... uninstall the others many codecs conflict with each other. Try DivX player... does it play there? If so i would reccommend FDDSHOW filters?

    many thanks, i had tried the AVI codec and that didn't identifiy the fie. Gspot identified one file as a .rar - new to me. downloaded winrar and its extracted two discs with a load of winrar archive files, all i have to do now is work out what to do with them - long night ahead i feel!!!

    .rar,.ro1,.ro2,.ro3??? easy open the rar files and drag out the files inside.

    If they are bin/cue files then burn them with new, avi file(s), just check with gspot for what codec ytou need to render the file :)
