Problem with Media Files in Linux's Windows Portion

I am running Debian with Orca as the screen reader. It is not a duelboot
system. I am very careful about the case of letters.. The version of Vinux
I am running dates back to late two-thousand and nine. I don't know what
else to tell you. The mere installation of Sox rendered my media player
in windows out of action. Short of reinstalling the system, I don't know
how to remedy the matter.
Feel free to visit my website and my blog and learn more about me
and what I stand for.
