if its windows media player, then im guessing you need to sort out the settings.

go to : tools > options > performance > advanced at the bottom

play around with those settings and see if you get anywhere.

Download VLC media player. It will solve all of your movie playing woes.

that is also a good option.

if everything is still black and white, then youv got some setting for ur gfx wrong somewhere.

What program are you using to play them with,could it be that it is defaulting to ntsc and not pal this would make them all come out b+w my dvd player does this.

It is a overlay setting in your graphic card options

make all the options default .

Its black and white for VLC, media player, divx player even quicktime. Nothing comes in color. Im going to try the overlay deal that the last post said and see if it works. Thanx so far guys.

And when you messed with the overlay settings, you skipped to the middle of the film?
