Hi John,

-What is the exact error message that you receive?

-Were there any changes made to the computer before the show?

I would suggest trying the following steps and check.

Method 1:

Run the troubleshooters and check if the problem persists.

Open the troubleshooting Windows Media Player settings Troubleshooter


Open the troubleshooter in the Windows Media Player library


If the problem persists, then follow the steps in the following methods.

Method 2:

To resolve this problem, delete the Windows Media Player database. To do this, follow these steps:

1. exit Windows Media Player .
2. click on Start, click run, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Media Player, and then click OK.
3. Select all the files in the folder, and then click delete on the file menu.
Note: You don't have to remove the folders that are in this folder.
4. restart Windows Media Player.
Note: Windows Media Player automatically rebuilds the database.

Method 3:

Update the audio drivers.

In some cases, you may encounter this error message if there is a problem with the audio device, such as a map his or her controller. For example, you can get this problem if your audio device requires an updated driver. Visit the website of the manufacturer of the audio device and get the latest driver to resolve the problem.
