I thought this was a codec issue, so I tried installing a variety of codec packs, including K-Lite, but the computer still resolutely refuses to show anything.
Playback difficulties (such as no playback, no audio, or no video) may result from several or legacy file splitters for a particular file format being installed on an operating system. This causes decoder-to-file-splitter mismatch resulting in playback failure on media players.
# 4 Problems playing types of files * 4.1 WMV files * 4.2 Real Media files * 4.3 QuickTime Files (.mov) * 4.4 Flash Video Files (.flv) * 4.5 Other Files
I suspect that this latter point is the answer to the problem; I'm satisfied that it's not a codec issue - but how do I track down the splitter or whater legacy application is responsible for the problem?

Automatically diagnose and identify codecs that may cause Windows to become unstable or to stop responding.
Gspot works on all versions of Windblows and there is a version for Mac's as well.
To find out what codec it is try this: http://www.afterdawn.com/software/audio_video/codecs/gspot.cfm

I got my copy from Afterdawn and have had no probs with it.
My mistake, I thought there was a copy for Mac's as well.
Either way, it's a good little free programme that does all that is asked of it.
I think I need a new computer, it's getting old...Chris
The thing I can't face is reinstalling all the idiosyncratic drivers and crap I have to support the various ancillaries I have plugged into it...
