Hi,
I think the problem is with the Codec.Different types of video formats require appropriate codec to play.I suggest you to install the require codec to play videos.You can download and install K-Lite Codec Pack, which include all the major video format's codec's.

You can download it from http://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm

Please try this solution and if you have any problem then revert back.

Thank you

My dvd/cd-rom is not able to play a dvd or cd of anytype


Restart your PC and go into your BIOS and disable the CD/DVD-R, this way it doesn't detect your CD/DVD-R it when you boot to Windows. Once you're in Windows, do a re-start again and go back into your BIOS and enable the CD/DVD-R.

When i play music or DVD on my windows media player there is no audio sound?


Open Control Panel - Sound and Audio devices - check the sound volume, move to high if required and Mute is not selected.
Next click on Sound tab and select a Windows and click on the play button, if the play button is greyed out then the audio driver is either not installed or not working. In this case install your model audio driver.

I bought a DVD from the netherlands. my DVD player says to check the regional code. I have Samsung M/C DVD 1080P 8/xaa serial # 02686 VBQ 512 632L. can you help me to get this DVD plAYED?


Hello. The reason your DVD cannot play the DVD is that the DVD is not formatted for North America/your DVD player. You can try playing it in a computer, but I cannot guarantee it will work. If you look on the back of the DVD, you will see a region code, the region for North America is region 1. Or, you can see if you know someone with a DVD player that can play foreign DVDs.

Thanks for using FixYa!

My dvd writer cannot play dvd video and audio


If this is a Desktop computer it is in..
Make sure 1st it is recognised in "My computer" (icon present)
Check it will play / read other discs
Check the connectors (SATA or IDE) are plugged into the back of the DVD and the power rail is tight.
Also if there is a CD to Mobo lead from the back of the DVD make sure it is plugged in
If it spins the discs, and there is no rattling etc, the drive is probably working ok.
If you are trying to play movie DVD's, software such as Cyberlink or similar is required

If this is a laptop DVD, check it is seen in "my computer" (Icon present)
Check as for Desktop with regard to the correct DVD player software being present

Finally, check that you have the sound drivers installed (will show under the speaker icon in control panel). If still stuck, repost wioth more info

I have a Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook running WindowsXP with a DVD-RW/CD-RW drive. When I insert a DVD to play or to copy it won't work, it tells me I need a DVD decoder. How can I get one to solve this...


Hi,
Just download FFDShow and VLC MEDIA PLAYER.
Its extremely rare with this combination, to find a movie that wouldn't play,

get FFDShow here http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=5550&s=50
with ffdshow all you need to do is to run the setup file and click next repeatedly untill the setup is complete, and then just finish it, close it and its done, works on the background when movies are played.

vlc media player - http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

After you got these two installed, you should be able to play most if not all of the movies out there.


open vlc media player and then click File, dvd movie.

The problem is with the codec that is require to play sound.You can resolve this by playing your DVD in another player like VLC media player or you will have to install the latest codec pack which supports major Audio and Video formats.

Following are the links to download both the VLC media player and K-Lite mega codec pack-
Download any one of them and install on your system.I am pretty sure this will resolve your problem.

Media player comes back with COOD10D1 error, have sound no picture on DVD


This is a codec error. I can send you a link to a full codec package to download and install.

Click on this link, select a download site and when its done, click run form the download folder. Take all the defaults while installing.

It also installs a program called Media Player Classic that is a player only. It will play anything.

But this package installs all codecs you should need if that fails to solve your problem let me know by using the comment box below and we'll try the Microsoft package but I hate to use it.

Hi there
Is this problem with windows media player only or with rest players also.
You try to repair your media player using your XP installation CD and then install a good codec pack such as XP codec pack or K-Lite codec pack.These are available for free .
Hope this works for you.

Waiting for your thanks.
