When you play a movie in Media Center in Windows Vista, the fast forward and rewind buttons may not work. For example, this problem may occur if you play a .wmv file.


This problem occurs if the movie is not indexed. Media Center can only fast-forward and rewind a movie that includes an index track. An index track lets programs such as Media Center find a specific point in the movie.
