Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 running Windows XP. My CD/DVD drive reads CD's, but not DVD's. I had a problem with getting my speakers to work before, but I installed a driver or something, and they work just fine now. Is there something I need to install to get it to read DVD's? If so, what is it?
DVDs are encrypted. For a time, "they" didn't want you to watch DVDs on your computer.
You can use Windows Media Player with the right codec if you want.
A better option may be a free player that already comes with all the options, like a Swiss Army knife. Check out VLC from here:
