    Check to see that you have a DVD decoder.
    A DVD decoder is a
    critical component of a DVD system. A DVD decoder is normally a program
    installed in Windows which can be found on your Start Menu. The program
    will typically consist of a screen for displaying the video and a
    playback control panel. On older systems this software may rely on a
    hardware decoder card. Most manufacturers of computer systems install a
    DVD decoder on their systems that advertise DVD capability. This
    software is typically pre-installed and also often provided on CD as
    part of your system restore CDs. If you cannot find your Decoder
    software, you should contact the manufacturer of your computer system.
    free InterActual software included on DVD's does not include a DVD
    decoder. It simply finds and uses the decoder already on your system.
    Windows itself does not
    include a DVD decoder either. If you have watched DVD's on your current
    computer system before, then you had a DVD decoder installed. If you
    have reinstalled Windows, or restored your system, you need to
    reinstall your decoder and InterActual Player.

    u mentioned that player is not working now a days.
    does that mean it is not able to recognize even data disks?

    if it is not reading even data CD then player has defect.
    if not player is working fine.
    you have uninstall ed the software needed for playing DVDs or you may have done a clean install of your system.

Error message says I have no decoder. What now???

You'll need a decoder from a program like cyber dvd or win dvd. Nero also has one and sonic too. If the drive came with a dvd player program install it. You can also find them through windows media player at microsoft's website but they will cost a few bucks. Search the internet for dvd player software you may find one for free. I hope this helps you. If you are like me you might have a program in your pile of software cds'.
