Windows media player will not play DVD,s because of a number of queued files .

The easiest solution is to download VLC Player. It is free and located at:

Do NOT download from the myriad of other 'download' places that appear in Google ads if you use that instead of the link I provided.

VLC (Video LAN player) plays just about everything in the world and is a lot easier to use than what Windows provides.

Windows Media Player will try to delete your files if you try to remove the queued files.

My media player want play dvd's

Maybe your screen resolution needs to be higher? What type of error message are you getting? Are these dvd's that you were able to play before?

Most computers will have problems playing dvd's that someone made for you on their computer. Try a store purchased dvd and see if it plays.

You can always reinstall windows media player at Microsoft's site below.

You can also try the VLC Player. It comes with drivers and codec. I've seen it solve a lot of issues that Media Player could not fix.

Try using VLC as your player. Go to and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.

Issues!!help please

If you open the DVD from "Media Player Classic", i think it should work.
Go to the installation folder of K-Lite Codec Pack (Probably C:\Program Files if you didn't change it)
The open de folder "Media Player Classic" and execute "mplayerc.exe".

Make sure the DVD is in the DVD-drive and go to File -> Open DVD

If this does not work, I think you have a very special DVD, or the DVD is damaged...

Please post some feedback

Lower screen resolution

You don't saty what OS you have, but in Windows: open Control Panel, Dbl-click Display, click on the "settings" tab, then slide the slider to the resolution you want.
