Question Can't play a WMV video file in Win 2K

CD was created w/ Hot Burn Pro as a WMV file. It plays in my pc Win 98 Win Media Player 9, but will not play in the default Win 2K media player. Does the 2K player need to be updated to a newer version, or will it not play at all...ever. I had heard something about Win 2K not being very good at handling video this correct ??? Any input... Thanks

gosh, off the top of my head i can't remember the error message. THe media player was the default media player that comes with the install. I bet updating the player will work because it was searching for the appropriate codecs then the error message appeared so chances are that will be it. I will try it tommorrow.
