What's the difference between .mid and .midi?

I was under the idea that all MIDI files were .mid, but now I found a .midi file and I can't use it with the program I want. Although I can play it with windows media player.

    They're the same. MID was originally used when DOS had a 3 character limit on the extension of files. Similarly, .htm was used then instead of .html. Now that we can have longer file names, you can have .midi and .html.
