Default Problems with the Divx codec

Hey guyz,

I'm having trouble with the Divx codec. I normally could just
download any free tutorial through firefox and and just go through the my compu. file click on the tut. I downloaded and it
would play in windows media player fine. Now I have the codec
on my system and when I try to open the tut. the codec comes
on automaticaly but it displays that its not able to read the file.
I also downloaded a divx user hand guide, but its not clear
how to just play a downloaded file or I didn't find anything
specific to playing the tut. I have a pc 1.86 proc. 1.GB of RAM
45.GB OF MEM. 300 ATI graphics card.

Probly more info than needed and I'm sure its nothing major but
I'm open for any suggestions.:headbang:

Default Divx problem

Dave,

I tried the Divx player, still no luck. Maybe its something minor
that I'm doing wrong. First ( with my DvDr in the dvd drive) I open the Divx player and the dvd drive begins to run like its about
to play, then a small window displays noting that an error was made with the Divx player and sends and error report and then the program closes.
I've also tried My computer/click on dvd drive then left click on one
of the tutorials , which gives me the option ''open with'', of course
I choose the Divx player, but still nothing.
