Introduction to finding a solution for the c00d11cd error

This error code, generated by Windows Media Player, is VERY annoying! Why?

Well it is a "GENERAL" error code..

By that I mean there is NO one single reason for it!

And this makes trouble shooting the c00d11cd error more complicated.

So just as there are multiple reasons for getting this error, there are multiple solutions to the error!


Below are some of the more common that I have come across... This collection is in no particular order, nor is it exhaustive. BUT many of you will find a solution here on this page...

Some of the main causes for the c00d11cd error..

Below are some of the most common reasons for this common error code AND
the solutions I, and others have found for them:

If you encounter this error, and the cause/resolution is NOT here, please let me know using my contact page. I can not personally answer every email BUT I will research the issue and post a solution on this page :-)

# You can not play WMV or ASF media on a website with Internet Explorer's Media Bar turned on.

Internet Explorer has its own player for the Media Bar. To get around the c00d11cd error being generated you need to turn the Media Bar off. To disable Internet Explorer's (version 6) Media Bar click the Media button on the main Toolbar, then click "Media Options" in the new pane that opens. Now select "settings", and then uncheck "Play web media in the bar".

There is no need to restart your machine as this will take effect immediately.


# You have a "playlist" on your PC that you are trying to copy to a CD-R. When you hit the copy button it goes straight to the c00d11cd error!

The most likely cause is DRM. Check the songs on your "playlist" to see if any of the content protected. To do this simply "right click" on each song, then select the "license tab". If any of the songs are protected then you can NOT copy them without the appropriate DRM authority. (DRM = Digital Rights Management) You will need to check with the site you purchased from to see the level of DRM used.


# You have a "playlist" on your PC that you are trying to copy to another computer. When you try and play on the new computer it goes straight to the c00d11cd error!

The most likely cause is DRM. (DRM = Digital Rights Management)

It is likely you purchased and downloaded from a site Like Walmart.com Online stores like these set restrictions on what you can do with the .WMA files you download. It is likely that the DRM licence for your download restricts you copying to another PC. You will need to check with the site you purchased from to see the level of DRM used.


# You can not copy songs from a CD in the CD drive to your hard disk. Windows Media Player generates the c00d11cd error.

The most likely cause is that something has gone wrong with the special file responsible for the "encoding". The name of the file is: wmadmoe.dll

The first thing we need to do is re-register this file with Windows XP. To do this go to the "Start Menu" and select "Run". Now type in the following: regsvr32 wmadmoe.dll

If this does not work then the file itself may be corrupt. To fix this go to the "Start Menu" again and select "Run". Now type in the following: sfc /scannow

This will now scan your XP machine to see if there are any corrupt system files. If there are any then XP will prompt you for the XP CD so it can get a new copy... This may help you resolve the c00d11cd error.

NB - This will get you up and running again, however due to some underlying problems with your installation you may actually need to re-install Windows Media Player.
