We had a new dvd player installed in our computer and it says that we need a decoder. We have the nero 7 essentials, does this mean we have to pay additional money for a decoder?

Nero comes with Nero Vision which has a decoder but I'm not sure if Vision comes with Essentials or just with Nero Ultra. Usually DVD drives also come with PowerDVD or WinDVD on their CDs but your might not have come with either. You can download VLC which will play DVDs without a decoder from http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

Error message says I have no decoder. What now???


You'll need a decoder from a program like cyber dvd or win dvd. Nero also has one and sonic too. If the drive came with a dvd player program install it. You can also find them through windows media player at microsoft's website but they will cost a few bucks. Search the internet for dvd player software you may find one for free. I hope this helps you. If you are like me you might have a program in your pile of software cds'.

Your only solution would be to do an internet search for open source dvd authoring software. If you just want to copy and burn dvd's there is a lot of open source software, you just have to try them out to see what fits your needs. Open source is free.

I HAVE A CDROM DVD I BOUGHT AT WALMART THAT COMES WITH NERO 7 ESSENTIALS AND I CANNOT LOAD IT UNTO MY COMPUTER BECAUSE THE SERIAL NUMBERS GIVEN ON THE SOFTWARE ARE ALL BEING REJECTED DURING INSTALATION.


Last time I bought a DVD and came with Nero, I did not have to enter any serial numbers, that is an OEM (original equip manuf) and should be able to install without them. Try skipping the serial if you can.

Nero 7 essentials disc but when i try to install it it comes up with message this version dose not support vista


Windows Vista is supported by Nero 7 since the version Nero 7.5.7.0.. Older versions of Nero 7 do not support Windows Vista. If you are trying to install Nero 7 from your original disc it is likely that there is an older version included on this disc. If you want to install Nero 7 on Windows Vista please be sure that you will only use latest Nero 7 version, you can download from the below website. Also please be sure that there won't be any rests of old Nero 7 versions on your system by performing the following steps:

1.
Start uninstalling all old Nero 7 applications and files from your computer using the Nero 7 CleanTool

Download the Nero 7 CleanTool using the following link:
Click here.
Save this file to your desktop.
Unzip the ZIP-file with WinZip or WinRAR and save the content to your hard drive.
Double-click on the unzipped EXE-file to start the CleanTool.
The window “Nero General Clean Tool” will open. The installed Nero version will be displayed.
Activate the checkboxes in the displayed Nero version.
Then click the “Clean” button.
A status window will open.
The execution of the tool may take several minutes.
Please wait until the progress bar has moved completely to the right.
In the window “Nero General Clean Tool” click the “Exit” button as soon as the erasing procedure is completed.
Reboot your computer.
The Nero 7 CleanTool has removed all Nero entries from your computer.

2.
To install the latest Nero 7 version, please proceed as follows:
(Note: do not install a previous Nero 7 version from an installation CD now, but download and install the latest version of Nero 7 from our website. All Nero 7 download versions have the full range of functions as an original Nero 7 installation CD. There is no need to install a previous version of Nero first.)

Download and install the latest Nero 7 version from website using the following link:
Click here.
Save this file to your desktop.
Double-click the downloaded Nero 7 installation file to start the installation.
Enter your Nero 7 serial number during the installation to make your Nero into a permanent version. (The download without a serial number is a trial version only).
You now have a newly installed version of Nero 7 on your computer.

My computer wont let me watch movies now. it keeps saying something about my dvd decoder wasnt installed.


if you bought the computer new or the DVD drive new , you whould have got a CD with it , most probably with something like WinDVD or something , if you have the specific CD with DVD software on it install it , as it will enable you to watch DVD's using Windows media player etc..

if you bought the computer second hand etc.. and or cant find the cd's a free solution is to download VLC media player (Download here) the only disadvantage about using this free solution is that you will have to play the DVD's through VLC you wont be able to use windows media player etc. to play DVD's as VLC does not require decoder software to play DVD's

otherwise you can purchase software such as WinDVD and this will enable you to play using your media player of choice.

Thanks!
