Well, when you insert a disc and go to My Computer then to the DVD drive itself, does it show that a disc is in the drive, if it does does and you open the drive does it show the contents of the drive! If so then you are having a software issue regarding the decoder! You can check out the following link: Microsoft explains DVD Playback in XP: Also you can try this free codec site: If when you go to My computer an the disc does not come up in the drive or the drive doesn't show or anything like that you may be having problems witht the drive / configuration itself let me know how this works out regards, babb

    Have you tried other dvds?

    If those still don't work then you can try this link
    Download that pack, exract it and install!

    And then there also other DVD software which always does the trick, try PowerDVD or WinDVD!

    Using Windows XP. Want to copy vidoe from Media

    Is the drive you are using a DVD writer or only a DVD reader? The drive that writes to RW disks is labeled DVD/RW or DVD Recordable.
    These are the only drive types that will read and write a DVD/RW disc.
