    Is it just in Windows Media Player that you are having issues with your drive?

    Can you read dvd's or cd's in other programs, or explore their contents at all?

Myp 8460p wont play dvd media


Answered previously (If the DVD player works, *try and seek if the player recognises a DVD), then you need to install software to play your DVD. VLC Media player is excellent, free and plays anything.)

It seems you don't have any codecs... The problem is not in windows media player.
Just install a codec pack like http://www.free-codecs.com/download/codec_pack_all_in_1.htm

Hope to solve your problem.

Did download a VLC but Win Media Player says"


Did you try playing the dvd using VLC instead of windows media player?

VLC is a separate player for media files. It will not enable Win media player to play DVDs but WILL play DVDs very nicely on it's own.

If you still want to get win media player to work you might try installing this free codec pack : http://download.cnet.com/Media-Player-Codec-Pack/3000-13632_4-10749065.html

  • Download.
  • Install.
  • Restart computer.
Hopefully you should be good to go.

Good luck ;)

My LG DVD palyer will not play Windows Media 7


Hi,its obvious from your problem that both windows media 7 and mpeg video formats are not compatible with your dvd player,as you know,the windows media 7 is a very recent media player which is compatible with only very few dvd players so its not a defect with your dvd player,however you can go through your manual to see the list of video formats supported by your dvd player.
Thanks and take care

Windows media player doesnt play dvd movies


Simply install a DVD player separately or DVD Codec for Window's Media Player. The reason why Window's Media Player can not play the DVD movies is that it does not has a DVD codec to play it. The simplest solution to do it is to install a DVD Player program and Window's Media Player will start playing DVD movies.
