I have a gateway laptop and i am trying to watch movies but it says the dvd decoder isn't installed it is an LG.


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 I think it went outdated that's why it's not working properly.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.

I have purchased the Dell Mini 10 Inspiron Netbook along with the iomega DVD slim drive. i cannot watch DVD movies on my Netbook as the compatible DVD decoder is not there. kindly let me know how I can...

Windows Media Player does not usually ship with a DVD codec.

1) One easy solution would be download the free (and popular) video player from VLC. Software is ready to go (already has the codec you need to run VLC player).

I use this and it has been trouble free for me.

2) You might be able to find the codec you want here...

Probably easiest to download and install the FULL pack.

There is also a forum for Dell Mini 10 users at

Give this a try it should help if you goto you should find a codec pack. Download it and install. dvd's and cd's not working due to not having a lot of codecs installed is a common problem. Start with that first see if it helps. If not post and let me know

Problems with video playback--Video keeps skipping.

First of all make sure your internet speed is right. Make sure no third party program is running in the background which is taking up CPU resources. You can also download DVD decoder like Klite codec free from and reinstall the flash player from

DVD region is locked

There is no regional code setting for the DVD drives in laptops. This is all handled by the codec or DVD decoding software. You will need different decoding software or software that covers all the regions. I use Power DVD and have had no problems with some DVD's from France and Germany that a Friend of mine likes to watch. Ran into the region problem with home DVD players for his movies. Unfortunately, I'm only fluent in English, so I don't find them as interesting as he does. Try a different decoder, it should work. You should be able to find decoders or codecs at

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.
