    ERROR MESSEGE:-
    Totem could not play 'file:///media/shared/avseq01.DAT'.

    "sudo apt-get install totem-xine" this means u installed totem-xine
    why did u do that??
    rest of the things means
    totem-xine was installed and the normal totem movie player & its codecs were removed

    souution to this is install the totem back and install all gstream plugins.
    do both of the things through synaptic.

    Hmm..tyou really should'nt bump a thread for this

    But even so, I just deleted the partition in Windows, fixed the mbr and boot.ini file and reformatted the ext3 drive again (after deleting it) to ntfs.
