Media player wont play movies but will down load muisc and write information to cd

Media player requires special Codecs and plugins in order to watch movies! Most cases they are not free, but here is the site which you can acquire them.

Now, on the other hand you can buy software of dvd suits that will play DVDs

Also, there are various free players out there you can download and use to watch movies for free.

Im a bit clueless but i have a downloaded movie on my pc and want to be able to put it on a disc, i have a compaq 6720s , does it have a burner inside it? what do i need to buy or install to be able to use...

I'm going to assume you are using a Windows operating system if you are using Windows media player. Windows media player does not come with the ability to burn or rip dvds. If your computer came with a dvd burner installed it should have also come with the burning software. You need to look for software labeled "Nero" or "Roxio" or another name that alludes to the fact that it will burn your dvds for you. Most of the software is pretty user friendly and if you need help using it you can just Google the software name and what your problem is and you can usually find an answer.

Now the tricky part is getting the video to a format that will allow you to burn it to dvd AND be played through a standard dvd player.

In order for your video file to be played in a standard DVD player it will need to be encoded in the MPEG-2 format. You will need software to do this for you. An excellent program would be "DVD Flick"

LifeHacker has put out an excellent tutorial explaining how to use DVD Flick here:

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

You don't need Video drivers to play your media files, you need codec plug-ins to play your media formats with your installed media players.

Codec download site:

Alternatively you can install the MpcStar player from : which plays most of the media formats.
