.WAV Codec Error - Windows Media Player RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    I have a CD with 3 .WAV files on it that I need to desperately listen to. When I try to open them, windows media player will open and then this error pops up. "An audio codec is needed to play this file. To determine if this codec is available to download from the Web, click Web Help." When I click on help it goes to a page saying "Windows Media Player cannot play the file (or cannot play either the audio or video portion of the file) because the Fraunhofer IIS MPEG-2 AAC (180) codec is not installed on your computer." I then looked up this codec and downloaded the file from this page http://www.fileguru.com/apps/fraunhofer_iis_mpeg-2_aac_180_codec I installed this codec and it still does not work. I cannot find this codec anywhere else. I have tried to convert these files from .WAV to .MP3 and that has not worked either. I get an error saying that it cannot be completed. I need to listen to these files for a very important hearing next month.
    If there is anyone that could please help me I would be very grateful.
    Thank you!
