I have been experiencing problems playing back windows video files
after my computer's operating system was rebuilt. I hope that someone
will be able to help me recover these videos as they represent many
hours of work.
I have a Firebird XE Professional and have recorded videos using the
DViCO plug-in for Adobe Premiere, version 6.02, onto a Windows 2000
based system. This system has three hard drives. The C: drive contains
only the operating system. The D: and E: drives contain the video
files that I captured using the Firebird XE Pro card. Each of the
video files have a .avi component and the series of associated
temp*.dvv files with sizes up to 2GB.
Recently, the Windows 2000 registry became corrupt and was
reinstalled on the C: drive only. During this process, no video files
on the D: and E: drives were changed at all. Their drive partitions
were not changed, either. After the reinstallation, I have tried to
play back the video files using Window Media Player version 6.4. With
some files, only the audio is present, but there is no picture -- only
a grey screen is visible. Some of the other files do not even open
under the media player. I have the same problems when I use DocuCap
version 2.30.
I therefore have the following questions:
1) Does a change in the operating system registry affect AVI files,
or specifically, the files recorded using the DVICO Firebird XE Pro?
2) If the files have been corrupted, can they be restored in some
way?
3) What codec must be installed in Windows 2000 to view the files
properly?

Thanks in advance.

Jeremy.

Usually this is caused by faulty memory. Search for Prime 95 on the internet and
run the "torture test." This test should be able to run forever without errors.
If your memory is faulty, it sometimes fails within seconds. This should
eliminate memory or CPU problems as the cause.

From past experience, getting corrupt registry was always faulty memory. Or
possibly the memory is overclocked.

Problems I've experienced playing avi's on windows are most often cleared up
by installing the latest DIVX codec:
