I would recommend using VLC media player it can play DVDs without using a DVD decoder.

If you want to use Windows Media player you will either need to purchase a program that has a DVD decoder for more information on DVD decoders please take a look at the link below.

You need a codec for the DVD. Go here (link further down) and download the K-lite codec pack which has the most used ones, agree with everything unless you have preferences you know about and want.

http://www.free-codecs.com/k_lite_codec_pack_download.htm

I suggest you download the full version.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 1642z dvd decoder not installed error message

Your friend probably reinstalled a "generic" version of Windows,
and did NOT use the CD-ROMs that were supplied by ACER with your computer.

If you still have those disks, maybe one of them is an "Applications" disk, and you can reinstall the "missing" applications from that CD-ROM.

Or, if you don't have that set of CD-ROMs, contact ACER, and order a replacement set. Usually, the fee is $20, plus the cost of courier-shipping.

Or, look at ACER's web-site -- they may make those applications available for free download.

Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer.


This is a common error message which means the "codecs" for your dvd decoder are not installed or up to date...DivX codecs can be downloaded and installed in "packs" for your specfic operating system that will remedy the problem.

The common advice is to go to cyberlink, pay and then download windvd, however there is a better option.

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'.

Ibm t23 laptop dvd rom not reading some dvds


Sounds like you need a DVD decoding software, ie... winvid, interdvd, and powerdvd. Windows media player will play some DVD's, but many DVD's, especially newer ones, need an additional decoder in order to work. You will be able to find the software at filehippo.com, download.com, or IBM's support site. Keep in mind that burning software, ie... nero, roxio, and dvd shrink, have decoders in order to burn the DVD, so they will work as a decoder in conjunction with your media player.

DVD Decoder


Can you run any DVD on your laptop?  If not, my first thought is that you don't have DVD software loaded.  If your laptop indeed has a DVD drive you should have received software with it to play DVDs, such as PowerDVD or WinDVD.
