Hi allisalevall,

If you cant watch a DVD movie you need to install a codec pack on your computer so that you can view the movie on your system. Click here to download. Enjoy watching.

Does not recognize DVDs, computer


Hi there,
I would like to suggest that you attempt to download & install the codecs that your media player requires, before it will play a DVD.
I found this typical when I was using the Vista operating system with Windows Media Player 11.
The codecs can be found as freeware online & a good site for the apt codecs for WMP 11 is @ www.majorgeeks.com once you are on the site, click multimedia on the left of the page, then scroll down to the codecs required.
The K-Lite series of codecs seem to work well with WMP 11 on Vista.
I truly hope that this has resolved your problem, as there is nothing better than watching a fine movie on the old PC.
Failing my advice, you could always 'Rip' the said movie to your media player & view it from your hard drive.
Good luck anyway.
Warmest regards,
Ste

Cannot play DVD, cd video wont play to media player


not sure whether its a problem with the drive or a problem with windows media player. Take a can of air and blow some onto the laser of the dvd drive, this will make sure that there is no dirt or dust on the laser.

Once you do that put the dvd back into the drive. Give it about 20-30 seconds and then see if it tries to pull up the movie if it does and your getting errors from windows media player then we know that the drive is working cause its seeing the movie properly.

At that point, I would suggest downloading the latest version of windows media player.

Go here to download the latest version of Windows Media Player 11.

After doing that and installing it, try playing your movie again, in fact try several movies just to make sure. Windows Media player may want to download Codecs, if it does then let it. This will allow it to recognize dvds better and quicker.

If the codecs are updated and you still can't get it to see and play movies then I would suggest using a different dvd player such as Cyberlink PowerDVD located on this page:

I am watching a movie on my compaq notebook using quickplay dvd play and i cant change the formant of the screen.... i keep getting the black bats on the side


That's quick time for you. Do you have the latest version installed?
Have you tried VLC Media Player for Windows Media 11?
Very good programs. You can download codec packages that will play any movie format, change formats, play directly from websites, dvd's, cd's and everything else.
