    a freind gave me several .avi movie packs. the first pack i cant open any of the movies and the second pack i cant open two movies. in the first pack when i try to open a movie it says: "there are some quicktime software mising they might be available at the website if you have a dial-up internet connection make sure its connected and press the button continue"
    but i installed almost every codec and also two more codecs: DivX Doctor II and 3ivx but nothing happened!
    please someone help me!

    AVI isn't a media type, it's just a package around a media type. Try WMP or VLC.
