I had also the same problem with WMP11.
I have downloaded and installed the codec pack "FFDShow-mpeg4" from the link, in "free-codecs.com"
The problem is solved.
While installing, enable all required extensions like MPEG1 MPEG2 etc.
Cheers.

Solution:
Well i could recommend another free video player instead of Windows Media Player 11. In this case, try installing Real Alternative, VLC, GoomPlayer all lf them support DVDs format.

I recommend Real Alternative over all 3 of them, to get it go here:
1) http://www.videohelp.com/tools/real_alternative and click on the "Download (mirror)".
2) after download is complete start the installation make sure to UNCHECK the following checkmarks during installation: Active X, and pluggin for firefox/opera/chrome/etc. you can leave the rest of the installation as default and click next all the time.
3) whenever you want to play a DVD close WMP 11 start Media Player Classic (installed during the real alternative installation, there should be a shourcut icon on your desktop for Real Player Classic now) on Media Player Classic go to File>Open DVD and you should have picture and sound.

Another extra side note of Real Alternative is that you can also play real media files (.rm, .rmvb) without having to install the nasty Real Media Player application

Hope this helps.

I have a video disk in my computer and is playing on media diret but i can not burn/copy to my desk top. would and how can I do that?


A program that I have used extensively is DVD Shrink. Not only can it RIP the movie onto your hard drive, but you can re-author the DVD to have just what you want in it. The link below will start the download shortly after the page loads.

In order to burn the movies again, for backup purposes only (otherwise it's illegal), you should try DVD Decrypter. Here's the link to the file;

Replacing a cd drive


The 4600 has PowerDVD to play DVDs (You should have the software CD to install it on the 3000) DVD burning software would be Roxio/Sonic, and you should have that CD too.
If you don't have the CDs, then try download.com to download Free player software and Burning software
