See if you can open the file from within QuickTime.

Start QuickTime

File: Open

Find your AVI file and select open.

This might or might not work, I myself had plenty of AVI files that refused to play.

Best of luck.

Try windows media player, if that doesn't play it, it's probably encoded with a divx codec. divx doctor can convert it to a .mov file that quicktime can play.
