    Vista MP3 do not play

    Media player will play videos but not mp3's. Can get mp3's to play in Winamp.
    In Media Player, it stops after about 2 seconds with no sound. And sometimes
    all sound from that point forward stops unless I reboot.

    I am assuming you mean that your media player will not do this.
    Mine does just so you know it's not a bug or a problem with WMP.

    I know this doesn't help much...

    I have no problem playing MP3's in MC or WMP with Vista. Did you upgrade to
    Vista or was it a clean install? If you upgraded there could be some old
    ..dll's or something clogging the pipes.

    I did an upgrade from XP Pro. I wish I knew which files were affecting this.

    somewhere back there.

    Re: Vista MP3 do not play

    I have a new, clean install and Media Player will not lay MP3's. All other
    computer sounds are fine.
    Othere player programs work fine.
