You may need an MPEG2 decoder as well as a DVD player program.  You're better off buying one because you can get everything you need and it will be reliable that way.
corel.com carries them.  There priced very reasonable. 
If your computer has a non oem card from ATI or NVidia you can get the decoders and players from their websites as well.

I don't know how to download cd's and dvd's on dell EL-1210-09


What do you mean download cd's and dvd's? You don't download them, you simply put them in the drive and play them. If you purchased a music cd or a movie dvd that you want to play or watch, then just put it in the drive. The system will recognize it and automatically open Windows Media Player for you to play it or you can open it yourself if autoplay is not active.

Exactly what is it that you are trying to do?

If you are talking about putting a blank cd or dvd into the drive to copy music or a movie to it, that's another story and will take a while to explain. You will basically need to make sure your CD/DvD drive can burn CD's or Dvd's. Then you will need some type of burning software (later versions of Window Media Player will burn).

Click Start/My Computer and look at your devices. if your DvD/CD Drive is listed look for RW which means rewritable (it can burn or copy). If it say DVDrw it can read and write dvd's. If it says CDrw it can read and write cd's. You can also look on the drive door on the computer where you would place the cd or dvd. If it says Rewritable CDrw (it can write cd's) or DvDrw (it can write dvd's). If it says ROM (read only media), that means it can Read Only and not write.

If the drive is rewritable then the software such as Media Player will allow you to go find what you want to put on the cd or dvd. You have two ways of putting things in the software to burn or write. You can copy and paste, or you can drag and drop.

Dell gx 260 there is no disc in the drive.


OK, first of all you said you put a blank DvD in the drive. Make sure your dell has a DvD writer. Look on the drawer of the drive and see does it say DvDrw or DvDROM. It has to say Rw for rewritable and not ROM for Read Only Media. Maybe you have a Combo Drive that is DvDrom and CDrw which means it will read both DvD's and Cd's but in can only Write CD's.

If in fact you do have a DvD writer make sure you're not trying to put a Blue Ray disc in the drive.

Lastly, remove the DvD from the drive. Click Start/My Computer. Notice what it brings up as to your DvD Drive. Does it Say DvDrw or just plain ole DvD. DvD means it will only read a DvD.

Wanting to burn a dvd


No, it is a CDRW and DVD drive only. If it were to be able to burn DVDs, it would say DVDRW. Your drive will play DVDs, it just won't burn them.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Have problem with computer allowing me to copy to dvd-rw or cd-rw. I can play both, but can not copy to discs. I have windows xp professional version 2002 service pack 2


Please remember to always note Computer specifications and Operating system details when you post a problem and to explain your problem in more detail( Specify your CD-ROM / DVD Drive more)

If you cant burn DVDRW or CDRW it is likely that your Drive does not support burning these Formats. You can check on your drive at the front; it should tell you what it supports.

Another solution could be that you are not using the correct software to burn your DVDRW/CDRW. I recommend using: Nero

Kind Regards,
