You probably don't have the correct codec for the avi file.

Have you updated to the latest version of Media Player? It might even need a divx player to play it.

Like Chris said, you may be missing a codec. There is a program that I recently came across called AVIcodec that will tell you if you are missing the codec. If you click one it it will load a page from which you can download the file.
