Default Media Player won't Play some MP3's

Hey guys any idea where I can get some newer MP3 codec as my windows media player doesn't reconize a few of my MP3 files, but other players like Limewire and Real play them just fine.

Any ideas on how to resolve this issue?

Cause I like Media Player better then most players that I have found.

Thanks in advance!

Yeah I downloaded the 24 mb codec and still no such luck with playing the same MP3s.

Pisses me off that Limewire, and even Roxio Cd Creator could play them but not damn windows media player.

I guess I have to find a new player.

Any other ideas?
