Question about Dell InspironTM 1501 Notebook
I found out the download link for Media Player Classic (the last link in my post) does not work. Use this one to go to this download page and click on the link that says:
Download [ Media Player Classic 184.108.40.206 [2008.04.14] for Win2000/NT/XP/Vista ]

Make sure you have the correct folder. There is also a light version of filesharing program Kazaa that's called K-Lite.
Which version of K-lite codec pack have you installed?
You need K-lite codec pack 3.8.5 FULL. Click here to download it.
The easiest way is to first remove the installation you have. During installation there are several pages where you can select or deselect codecs. I'm not sure if media player classic is listed there, but if it is, make sure it is selected. Else just finish installation. My installation folder was: "C:\Program Files\K-lite Codec Pack".
I'm pretty sure that there should be a folder "Media Player Classic" now.
If not, use this link to install Media Player Classic manually.
Using this player you should be able to open your DVD.
Good luck and please tell me if you got it working.
