Finally it works! Such an easy fix. That being said, has anyone had trouble with the sound? I can watch my videos through the HP quickplay, but I get no sound.

The other thing is that if I leave the files as ASX and move them into my Picasa 3 I can now watch them. Again, the issue is that I have no sound.

So close and yet so far.

Thanks for your help and it's a great site. I have been here before but never commented.

I agree with every one "Vista Sucks!!" The sharp G.726 Audio Codex don't work on my DELL. It worked fine on my HP Pavillion. When do we get some attention for this Microsoft error??

I've read a few reviews saying thanks for the advice on changing the asf files to asx files and people enjoying success thanks to the advice by christian, but can anyone tell me how I go about changing my asf files to asx files.
