I have two types of audio files on my computer WMA and MP3. Both file types play on my Windows Media Player (Version 7) I wanted a program to convert my WMA files to MP3 so I can have uniformity, I downloaded a Media Player called Blaze Media Player Pro that claimed would do this, it didn't work it just kept hanging, so I unistalled it. Now both file types (WMA and MP3) have a been converted to Blaze Media Files and when I open them it cant because I have unistalled it and the files cant find the Player to run. When I open the properties of each file under file type it says "Blaze Media Pro", so how do I get all my files to play with the Windows Media Player again?

When you navigate to these files do they still have the WMA and MP3 extensions or was the extension changed? If the extension was not changed right click one of the WMA files and select open with. Scroll down to Windows media player click on it and click the box that says always use this. Do same for MP3.

Hi Davey,

I tried right clicking but the "open with" command only lets me choose Blaze Media Player, there is no scroll down menu. The file extensions have not changed.

Good the extensions are in tack. Lets try this Open your documents folder find folder options under tools or view. Click the file types tab. Scroll down to MP3 highlight it and then click the change tab. After selection appears scroll down to windows media player select click ok then click apply. Do same for WMA
extensions. Tick the always use box if it there.

To get the ‘Open with” scroll down in the right click menu you must highlight the file before right clicking on it, and hold the shift key while you right click. One of Windows’ little dumbnesses.

Then follow Davey’s first set of instructions – easiest way to do it.
