You need a piece of software to play DVD movies. Is this an actual DVD movie, or is it an MP4 or WMV/WMA file?

Usually you need something like WinDVD to play a DVD movie. I don't think Media Player can play those.

Did you recently install another piece of software that might have affected your ability to play DVDs?

Make sure first your drive is in fact a DVD player and not just a CD player. If you are using windows xp you can click on start button, click on control panel, open system, select hardware tab and click on Device manager. The picture below you will see if your computer came with a DVD or just a regular CD player. If its a DVD it should come with a software like PowerDVD or Cyberlink that you need to install. If you dont have any of these or they are not working you can try downloading VLC player using this link http://download.cnet.com/VLC-Media-Player/3000-13632_4-10267151.html.

Xbox 360 says to play disc put it in an xbox 360 console


The box isn't loading the decoder softwarer for the Disc. The Xbox discs are encoded HD DVD-ROM discs, and the box needs to recognize them so it can load the decoder software. It probably says "play dvd" on the xbox dashboard right?

Decoder missing, can't play dvd


Your DVD drive should have included a dvd playing software, such as WinDVD or PowerDVD. If it didn't, you may need to purchase one of these or install the Elecard DVD Codec for free. This link may work:
