Default AVI Playback prob - please help - have codecs already! still problem

I have some AVI files (6 different files) that cannot be played in any of my players. A still picture appears in the file thumbnail but when I play the file - after the still pic is loaded the player gives a warning message "must close would you like to report this to Microsoft"

I used GSpot to check these files and:
1. I have the codecs
2. Directshow rendering is successful

Here is Gspot info from an example file movie.CD2.AC3.DVL.ShareReactor.avi:

file length correct

VIDEO: div3, div-x 3 low-motion
2 compatible codecs installed - divX decoder filter (listed twice)
bitrate: 1203 kb/s, fps: 23.976, Qf: 0.223 bits/pixel

AUDIO:
codec: ac3 (0x2000) Dolby Laboratories, Inc
2 compatible codecs installed - Nero Digital Audio Decoder,
-> AC3 from AVI XForm -> Nero Digital Audio Decoder
bitrate: 448 kb/s (5 ch) CBR, Fs: 48000 Hz

Directshow Render:
video src: 4cc: DIV3, audio src: DOLBY_AC3
video path: (S) --> AVI Splitter --> DivX Decoder Filter --> (R)
audio path: (S) --> AVI Splitter --> AC3 from AVI XForm --> AC3 Prologic Decoder --> (R)

Does anyone have any idea how I can get around this? Should I try to convert the files to another format? Is this a conflict as the result of two codecs being able to play audio and video?

I'm a newbee and could really use the help. I know these are good files and it would be a shame to delete them before I try to work out the problem.

"I have some AVI files (6 different files) that cannot be played in any of my players."

"I know these are good files "



If you are unable to play these files, how do you "know" they are good?

I don't know that they're good for sure. I can tell that they aren't fakes-I meant. For example sometimes it runs a few seconds after the error message. It seems too much of a coincidence that files from different sources from different weeks don't work. Also based on Gspot - I should be able to play them.

I figured it's something pretty easy - that I'm just missing. I would be gratefull for any advice you can give me.

Default still doesn't work after ffdshow download

The file still doesn't work. Is there a way I can tell if codecs are interfering with another? - Note Gspot data for files is given above.
