Never had this, but have friend that had to jump through hoops, download stuff to get it to work right. Might be better on newest computer, maybe his was older?

Be more specific.

1) What kind of files?

2) What are the extension on the files? (i.e. .wmv, .avi, .mp4, etc...)

3) What program are you trying to play them in?

4) Where did you download them from?

5) How did you save them?

Is it a standard gopro cam or the hd one? Not sure how the files on those things come back to the computer, but I know with my HD video camera I need a special player to play raw HD footage.

You think VLC would let them play? They let just about everything play.

According to GoPro the files are in MPEG4 format using h.264 compression. If you're trying to view with Windows Media Player it could be a problem without installing additional codecs.

You may want to try dropping the video files into Windows Movie Maker and if it will accept them you could render them out in the more common WMV (windows media video) format.

Or.....

If you download and install VLC media player you will be able to view your videos without any additional codecs. VLC will play almost every video format, including Flash video. It's safe too.

->VLC download<-

I would definitely say it's worth a shot. I think on my MAC I got some special tool (have to check at home of name) that will convert any HD files to whatever format I want so I can use them wherever.
