1. are you sure it's downloaded completely?
2. do you have the latest xvid codec installed?

if yes, download gspot from here and double check the file.

come back for seconds and post more specific details of your computer (OS, media player etc)

yes, I have it completely downloaded, the size is 171mb in the xdcc list and it's 171 mb in my computer, yes I have latest xvid and while playing with videolan, it shouldn't really matter... and what stat gspot gives to the file is: not a valid avi file, I have windows 98 and for example the next episode wich is ep4 works fine on my comp.

ok, now the thing to do is to do a CRC check on the file.
The file size should be 179388416      
and the CRC is 7350E1BE
download a CRC32 checker, eg from here: http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/vhorch/piccheck.htm
verify the file. It'll probaly be different from the above, then you'll have to redownload the file, sorry :x
