Cannot play dvd


Since Windows XP, Microsoft failed to include the necessary codec to read and play DVDs. This was due to a licensing issue between Microsoft and someone else (maybe the people who owned the rights to the MP2 codec, or something like that). Anyway, the quick, easy, and free fix is to download VLC Media player from videolan.org. Just google vlc player, and choose the first hit that is from videolan.org. go there, and download it. Once you have it installed, you may have to tell it to open the disk with File->open disk, or something like that. It is a great player, and will play just about anything.
