Helo Frederick,

It is very common difficulty among users like you. Your Winamp and WMP might not support the selected file type or might not support the codec which was used to compress those media files. You may try to change the settings for WMP, Tools->Options->Devices->Speakers->Properties will definitely allow you to change it.

Another way of changing the situation is to download the latest codec pack. Some codec packs which are available on internet are K-lite codec pack, XP codec pack etc. You can check following links to download latest codec packs for your pc:

As for winamp also, there are several codec packs for users, some of them you will find from links below:

Hope you will be able to solve the problem.
