You have to buy any dvd player to let WMP to play dvd on it, like Power dvd etc. If you dont want to buy, try open source alternative lile VLC media player. ( click here ) to get it. I am not sure, you can play dvd on media player or not, but using vlc, you surely can.

Can not play problem for media player is a copy write related issue and microsoft can not give it with windows.

    Hi there. Your CD/DVD rom should be located on the right hand of the laptop, so no you shouldn't need to buy an external. If you download and install the codec by clicking on the link i gave you in my last post, then perform a Microsoft update you should be up to date and media player should play the files.
    If not, then download VCL Player here >>>>>>>

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 ;)

Can you tell me why I can't play dvds on my laptop please?


To ply DVDs you will need a DVD decoder. Some operating systems comes with their own decoder already, for example Windows Vistal Ultimate has Media Center. If you are using windows you can fetch a decoder from the microsoft website http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/plugins.aspx

Ibm t23 laptop dvd rom not reading some dvds


Sounds like you need a DVD decoding software, ie... winvid, interdvd, and powerdvd. Windows media player will play some DVD's, but many DVD's, especially newer ones, need an additional decoder in order to work. You will be able to find the software at filehippo.com, download.com, or IBM's support site. Keep in mind that burning software, ie... nero, roxio, and dvd shrink, have decoders in order to burn the DVD, so they will work as a decoder in conjunction with your media player.
