Hi,

I use VLC Player to watch everything. It has all the codecs and decoders already inbuilt. It has never failed me in 3 years.

Also, you might want to consider AnyDVD, which is pretty amazing software but is not free, like VLC Player. But if you click on the link you will read why I think you will find it useful.

I suggest AnyDVD, but strongly recommend VLC Player.

Hope this helps

ps Cleaning the rollers properly, and checking for paper jams and small pieces of paper trapped in the cogs are usually the initial cause of such stalling. Maybe you should contact the person you spoke with before, who will remember your conversation and be able to further advise you.

Media center does not play cds or dvds please help


You have to check your CD/DVD Rom to make sure the device is not faulty.

Open your Windows Explorer, insert any CD/DVD to see whether your CD/DVD is able to read the the disk.

If it cannot read the disk, most probably the CD/DVD rom is faulty and you have to replace it.

Cannot play DVD, cd video wont play to media player


not sure whether its a problem with the drive or a problem with windows media player. Take a can of air and blow some onto the laser of the dvd drive, this will make sure that there is no dirt or dust on the laser.

Once you do that put the dvd back into the drive. Give it about 20-30 seconds and then see if it tries to pull up the movie if it does and your getting errors from windows media player then we know that the drive is working cause its seeing the movie properly.

At that point, I would suggest downloading the latest version of windows media player.

Go here to download the latest version of Windows Media Player 11.

After doing that and installing it, try playing your movie again, in fact try several movies just to make sure. Windows Media player may want to download Codecs, if it does then let it. This will allow it to recognize dvds better and quicker.

If the codecs are updated and you still can't get it to see and play movies then I would suggest using a different dvd player such as Cyberlink PowerDVD located on this page:

DVD will not play, windows media player XP, when inserted in player. CDs play automatically but DVD does not.


Uninstall the media player,goto windows Market place and install windows media 11. its free and has all the new updates. Providing you have the correct system requirements. If not you can reinstall your old version at the same site and will probably have the required updates anyway.

Windows media player can't play .wmv files


  • Firstly a UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterrupted Power Supply - meaning emergency backup power in the event of a mains power failure. This is not a type of PC.
  • Secondly - Windows media player does not support every type of movie format, as Microsoft Update it from time to time, some formats will still not be supported, these are known as codecs.
  • Thirdly, codecs to support your particular format can usually be downloaded and added to Windows Media Player, however i can not think of any reason .wmv files are not supported by Windows Media Player.

You could try re-downloading the latest version of Windows Media Player from one of the links provided below.
WMP 11 will support the latest codecs, but if for some reason you find yourself needing the older version, use WMP 10.

You will most likely have to remove your current version of WMP, and you can do this by using Windows Add/Remove programs.
  1. Click on the Start menu button ( bottom left corner of your screen. )
  2. Click on Control Panel.
  3. Click on Add or Remove Programs.
  4. Click on Windows Media Player in the list.
  5. Click Remove ( right hand side of the listing )

Microsoft WMP 11 is available by clicking on this link:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/default.aspx

Microsoft WMP 10 is available by clicking on this link:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/10/default.aspx

WMV 11 is available by clicking on this link:

WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER NOT RESPONDING..


Windows Media Player in this case has a script error that causes it not to respond on any OS platform that has yet to be fixed by updates. I have currently updated it to its fullest and it refuses to respond properly on windows xp, let alone beta versions of windows like windows 7. My suggestion is forget windows media player 11 and go download VLC player which plays more things off the bat anyways. Its free and easy and small. There is also any number of other media players like Realplayer, Quicktime, or Windows Media Player Classic.
