    So the Problem is that you have some WMV Files
    (Windows Media Video) and some of these Files are Not seekable meaning you can not Scan through the File or Fast foreward??? If this is the Problem then all you have to do is make the Files seekable, To do this you can use a simple Program called "ASF Tools" http://www.bruceh.com/download/asftools310.zip You might have to re-name the WMV to ASF but that is OK because WMV and ASF are the same...This program can edit your WMV/ASF files and Fix errors in them and make them seekable..This is better than trying to convert them to a different format because converting makes you loose Quality...Cheers
