Hi ruggie_p,


Since you have an Internet connection to your PC, you should download codec to your Windows Media Player for it to play DVD's.
Mine is Cole2Media.

Is windows media player able to play dvds? how daes it work? my laptop media can not play dvds.. i m feeling tired of it..


You may need codecs in order to play most DVD videos and other formats like DivX. Use this codec pack here. Select the Media Player Classic as the application while you were asked to provide it. K-Lite After that both of your players are ready to play DVDs (its better to have Media Player 11 in your system for a better experience) Enjoy your movie!

Unable to play dvd


DVD decoder does not come pre installed with windows. Download GOM or VLC media player and install it. Media player will then play DVDs. Also the two players I have mentioned play dvds.

For vlc copy and paste this link in internet explorer adress bar:

Hi,
are you trying to play DVDs from a different region ?
PC DVD Drives, are region set to the computer, if you have a region 1 dvd drive, trying to play region 2 dvds et,c. it won,t let you. theres a couple of ways around this. go to Afterdawn ( on the web ) and download a region free dvd device.
Solution 2. try to obtain any updates or re-install windows media player. suggest player version 9 or above.

Mike @ compurepair.

p.s finally is to check that your drive, indeed supports DVD Or certain types of dvd media. i.e DVD+ Or DVD- some only support One type.
