Computer won't play or recognize anything on dvd-


Looks like you are missing the DVD decoder. If you are using Windows lower than Vista Home Basic (Including) like Windows XP, they do not have the DVD decoder installed natively. Download a decoder and install it. Better still get a Good DVD player like Win DVD Player. You can also try this. Install a trial version of a DVD player. Even after the trial period expires probably your DVD will still work since the decoder is now there. Not checked but it might. In any case, if you like the player you can make it fully licensed on-line.

Dvd decoder not installedhow can i install it??need a answer immediately


If it's about you not being able to play DVD's with your media player, it's because you need a media player capable of doing that - i use  http://www.videolan.org/vlc/  .
Click on Windows, in the next window select the closest location to you, select Save (nor Run) and wait for it to completely download, close the browser and launch the installer, set it as your default media player. 
When the install is finished just play whatever you want with it.

Decoder want let dvd play


The software technology used to decoded the format used by DVD's is owned, and has to be purchased in order to decode and playback the content. Hardware manufactures already have paid for this license for your "on-the-shelf-dvd player". You have another option... to download a DVD Player that includes a pre-licensed decoder.

Download this codec pack... http://www.codecguide.com/download_k-lite_codec_pack_mega.htm

Then, open the program called "Media Player Classic" that the mentioned codec pack will install.

Dvd drive wont work??? or wont play?


The decoding program was apparently lost during the restore. Follow the link bellow, it will take you to the decoding software download at IBM's support site. This should correct your problem, if not let me know.

Cannot play dvds as drivers lost when changing from vista to xp home.when enter dvd it says dvd decoder and drives lost


If you are running XP, you will need to install a DVD playback application. IN VIsta, DVD playback is native to WIndows, in XP, Dell used a program called Cyberlink PowerDVD. You can either buy PowerDVD on line or download a free DVD playback application from places like Download.com. I've had good luck with the AVS DVD player here:

http://www.download.com/AVS-DVD-Player/3000-7970_4-10491860.html?cdlPid=10669161

If you just installed XP on this system, it is also important that all the drivers are installed and in the correct order. Dell's preferred order is:

Notebook System Software
Chipset Utility
Video Driver
Sound Driver
Modem Driver
Network Driver
Wireless Driver
Touchpad Driver
Quickset Utility

Drivers are available here:
