No sound when playing MPEG video in MediaElement

Hi, I am writing a multimedia centre using the WPF MediaElement control, the project is very mature and going really well. However I get no audio when my player plays a .MPG file. I have tried installing lots of different codec packages on my test machine but to no avail. The same files have audio when loaded in WMP but not in my WPF application. I am developing on an XP machine and on that I get sound, but on my target machine, Windows 7, no sound! Other formats such as AVI etc do not have this problem. Any ideas? Thanks in advance
