Default Vista codecs and second partition security

I just installed vista ultimate 64 bit but I don't have codecs cuz avi movies won't play in mce does anybody know of a good complete codec pack for vista (with mce codecs) thanks

edit when I try to open a file from my xp partition then I have to make myself the owner of the file is there an easy way to fix that?

Google "combined community codec pack".

As for the 2nd part of your question, I'm not sure what you mean.

First part the CCCP will work well but you can also google for the Vista codec pack. That works well.

As for taking ownership...you will have to do it for each file. Since the XP and VIsta structure is so different there is no way for you to take complete control. You will haev to do it by each file you want to use. I am about to write the guide on how to do that.
