Windows Media Player does not usually ship with a DVD codec.

1) One easy solution would be download the free (and popular) video player from VLC. Software is ready to go (already has the codec you need to run VLC player).

I use this and it has been trouble free for me.

My Dell 1737 DVD/CD drive won't recognize DVDs or burn DVDs but will play select CDs fine. Solutions? Thanks, Jeff


Hi, pretty much the codec is not installed on the computer and I think that's the reason why the system can't read DVD. Try to download the right codec for your PC.

You could try VLC player. Here's the link:

http://vlcplayerdownload.org/

Or you can also try installing a codec. Here's the link:

The common advice is to go to cyberlink, pay and then download windvd, however there is a better option.
Download VLC which is a tremendous video player (plays every video format) that will play DVDs. It's free too :-)

My labtop is asking for dvd decoder what I am going to do??? Model inspiron 1525


I assume you are having problems playing a DVD disk and the computer error message states that it needs a video codec installed.
For a free codec please click on this link and download a video codec :-

Dell XPS M1530 has a Blu-Ray drive but can't watch BR discs. Computer does not recognize BR discs. installed Power DVD 9 and still doesn't recognize BR discs. It says that I don't have a CD player.


you need to check that you have the codec for BR video, if you goto http://www.free-codecs.com/ and download the XP codec pack (even if you have vista), install it and then run the DrWatson codec utility, it will list all the codecs installed on your PC. you can also download all the latest codecs from the site.

DVD Codec


Windows media player will play very few DVD's on it's own. It needs to work in conjunction with a decoder. You can find a decoder, ie... Power DVD, WinVid, InterVid, etc..., at Dell's support site or filehippo.com. I use Power DVD on mine with no problems. Also, the configuration that you have will not have a noticeable or any effect on videos. They will play fine, once you have a decoder.
