I bought a rebuilt Dell Latitude D620 laptop and it will not play dvd's.It tells me that I need to download a dvd decoder. What is safe and where can I do this


Hi lou_59,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

Are you trying to play DVD using Windows Media Player?


Download and install VLC Media Player, it is a Free Multimedia Player Software capable of reading most video and audio formats.


You can download it here:

Cannot play need an compatible dvd decoder


Hi, I think I can Help you today with this.

Most dvd players require decoder software in order for them to work but fortunately, there are several free programs out there that will work for you in this matter.

I recommend VLC, as it is a free program that not only will allow you to play the dvd, but has features for video, audio and sync control as well.

If you don't like that program, you can also try Real Player, Or Divx plus.

Both of these programs are free, and they have the proper dvd decoder software in them as well.

Also, if you can download a program called k-lie codec pack, it may very well fix your problem, without havung to get any of the other software, and you can then play your dvd's using Windows Media Player

I hope this helps you out.

Where can i get a free dvd downloadable decoder?


VLC will play dvds and dvd vob files ;)

I've used "free" decoders in the past but they're usually spyware ridden and full of junk.

Use VLC, trust me.

Here's a link to the site.

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.

My dvd player doesnt read dvd video or dvd music but it read data dvd


You need software to "decode" the DVD-video data on the disk.

Search online for the *FREE* 'VLC' video-player software.
Download it, and install it.

Cannot play dvds. says my Windows Media Player cannot play the DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer.


Chances are you need the proper codec to run the DVD. Software companies often write their own 'interpreter' software to read the format they use to encode videos/music files.

Trying doing a search on the internet for the type of file format Windows Media Player is trying to run, then look for the codec for that format. Unless the format is copyright protected, Microsoft should have the codec available on their website.
