I just hung up on the 6th technician at Dell!!!! Yes, No.6!!! And sorry to say, being female, I literally was in tears. I took my 1018 out of the box...ordering it because I wanted only to check email and...


Make sure first your drive is in fact a DVD player and not just a CD player. If you are using windows xp you can click on start button, click on control panel, open system, select hardware tab and click on Device manager. The picture below you will see if your computer came with a DVD or just a regular CD player. If its a DVD it should come with a software like PowerDVD or Cyberlink that you need to install. If you dont have any of these or they are not working you can try downloading VLC player using this link http://download.cnet.com/VLC-Media-Player/3000-13632_4-10267151.html.

MY LAPTOP CAN'T READ MY TEAC DW224E DVD DRIVE. SAYS RIGHT DECODER IS NOT INSTALLED. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME? I CAN'T USE MY LAPTOP DVD DRIVE . IT IS A TE2300 LAPTOP XP


Windows XP requires you to install a separate MPEG2 decoder. This mean that you need a program like Cyberlink's PowerDVD or Intervideo's WinDVD. All laptops would have come with this, and and DVD drive also comes with this software.

Dvd decoder not installedhow can i install it??need a answer immediately


If it's about you not being able to play DVD's with your media player, it's because you need a media player capable of doing that - i use  http://www.videolan.org/vlc/  .
Click on Windows, in the next window select the closest location to you, select Save (nor Run) and wait for it to completely download, close the browser and launch the installer, set it as your default media player. 
When the install is finished just play whatever you want with it.

Dvd drive wont work??? or wont play?


The decoding program was apparently lost during the restore. Follow the link bellow, it will take you to the decoding software download at IBM's support site. This should correct your problem, if not let me know.

Decoder missing, can't play dvd


Your DVD drive should have included a dvd playing software, such as WinDVD or PowerDVD. If it didn't, you may need to purchase one of these or install the Elecard DVD Codec for free. This link may work:

Dvd drive on laptop


You need a piece of software to play DVD movies. Is this an actual DVD movie, or is it an MP4 or WMV/WMA file?

Usually you need something like WinDVD to play a DVD movie. I don't think Media Player can play those.

Did you recently install another piece of software that might have affected your ability to play DVDs?

Windows media player


Windows XP does not come with the proper software to play DVDs. All major brands of pcs come with a piece of software called a DVD decoder. Once the DVD decoder is installed windows media player can play DVDs again. This software will be on your application recovery disks from your manufacturer. If you do not have these disks you can purchase them from the company who built your PC or you can purchase a DVD decoder software such as the ones found here. If you don't want to purchase one you can try a different program such as the VLC Media player to play your DVDs. VLC is a free download.
