Hello,

Install the dvd driver into your computer. You can also try using RadarSync to update the decoder. I think it went outdated that's why it's not working properly. Updating it would fix the issue.

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 1642z dvd decoder not installed error message

Your friend probably reinstalled a "generic" version of Windows,
and did NOT use the CD-ROMs that were supplied by ACER with your computer.

If you still have those disks, maybe one of them is an "Applications" disk, and you can reinstall the "missing" applications from that CD-ROM.

Or, if you don't have that set of CD-ROMs, contact ACER, and order a replacement set. Usually, the fee is $20, plus the cost of courier-shipping.

Or, look at ACER's web-site -- they may make those applications available for free download.

Cannot watch dvd movie


Possibly you do not have codecs installed, they allow either windows media player or other players to decode the dvd then play it. If you want to save the hassle of searching for them, get Cyberlink DVD player....it is a DVD player that strictly plays DVD's without having to get a codec or decoder. OR...If you have Win XP, their is a small DVD Codec specifically designed for Windows Media Player called "DVD Decoder Pak for Windows XP" the size is 1MB.

Cant look at movies on labtop says something about a codec code


DVD movies need a decoder installed before movies can be played on the computer/laptop.
A free video codec can be downloaded from the Internet, please click on this link and select a video codec :-

Dvd DOES NOT PLAY MOVIES AND UNABLE TO LOAD GAME SOFTWARE


The standard version has Windows Vista® Home Basic Edition SP1. This version do not have native support for decoder to watch DVD movies. Install a good DVD player like WinDVD or any other DVD player software. This will install the necessary decoder. Once this is done even if the installed trial version expire, your windows media player will still play the movies. However, if you like the software, make it fully licensed version on-line. Hope this helps.

Unable to watch DVD cd


good luck- nobody gives away a dvd player software for free these days. Usually they come bundled with Nero- or other burning software. You can try bittorrent- but look at the comments- usually you are downloading a virus too. Try a local computer repair shop- they will probably have one they can sell you cheap.

By default, Windows does not include a DVD decoder (which is what you need to watch DVDs).
If you are using WMP10: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/plugins.aspx
If you are using WMP11:
http://savvybytes.com/2006/10/02/playing-dvds-with-windows-media-player-11/

Install the codec and you will be able to watch DVDs!
