On many CD-Roms, or burners, there is a plug on the back that is for Digital Audio. It is a rectangular shaped plug. Some PC's require that a cable is attached from the back of the burner, to either the on-board audio (on the motherboard), or to the sound card that may be installed. If you have any further questions, just let me know :)

Hi, You have 2 option,
1.You can download the codec here, then install the codec to your computer then restart, your windows media player will play your DVD.

2. You can download an alternative DVD/ Video Player here
VLC media player is 1 of the most popular Video player, its for free, ( im not paid for this ).

Hope this help

Replacing a cd drive


The 4600 has PowerDVD to play DVDs (You should have the software CD to install it on the 3000) DVD burning software would be Roxio/Sonic, and you should have that CD too.
If you don't have the CDs, then try download.com to download Free player software and Burning software

My hp pavilion a305w will not let me play dvds


First of all you'll need a DVD-Rom Player. If you go to my computer and you see the drives you have. Drive C and

DVD-Rom station or CD-rom Station.
If it's not listed you don't have a DVD-rom player and you can never play dvd's unless you work with images and image drive software like daemon tools or alcohol 120%.

If you do have a DVD-rom player you can play dvd's with Cyberlink Powerdvd or BS-player. Even with Windows Media Player.

It depends on the operating system you have.

Hope this was helpfull. If questions i am happy to answer.

My computer wont let me watch movies now. it keeps saying something about my dvd decoder wasnt installed.


if you bought the computer new or the DVD drive new , you whould have got a CD with it , most probably with something like WinDVD or something , if you have the specific CD with DVD software on it install it , as it will enable you to watch DVD's using Windows media player etc..

if you bought the computer second hand etc.. and or cant find the cd's a free solution is to download VLC media player (Download here) the only disadvantage about using this free solution is that you will have to play the DVD's through VLC you wont be able to use windows media player etc. to play DVD's as VLC does not require decoder software to play DVD's

otherwise you can purchase software such as WinDVD and this will enable you to play using your media player of choice.

Thanks!
