      Did you ensure all the requiste codecs were installed on Windows 2000 computer (i.e. at least all the same codecs that are installed on the Windows 98 PC)? Do a codec by codec/version by version comparison to see what is different between the two computers. Windows Update does not handle third-party codecs. Some codecs are installed along with or built into third-party software.
