Hello, my name is ***** ***** suggest downloading the VLC media player which comes with all kind of codecs to read a multitude of video files.You can download the program here:'s free and I've used it all the way back to Windows 95. You shouldn't need the Divx player with this program and the installation should take a couple minutes.If you have any difficulties, let me know, but it should go off without a hitch.Thank you!Richard
