Dell D800 probles with windows media player

For some reason the windows media player 11 does not play back DVDs at the normal rate on the Dell D800. the Windows media player which works on my Dell C840 has no problem, but try doing the same on D800 it plays back in a choppy rate. I have used another dvd player Windvd7 which is also installed in the C840. The D800 works well with that software but has a problem to work with Windows Media player, can anyone tell me if i need to change something on the setting of the computer

Can you tell me why I can't play dvds on my laptop please?


To ply DVDs you will need a DVD decoder. Some operating systems comes with their own decoder already, for example Windows Vistal Ultimate has Media Center. If you are using windows you can fetch a decoder from the microsoft website http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/plugins.aspx

DVD won't Play


If i understood you right you need a DVD player program. If so i would recommend you to try VLC Media Player.. VLC is a portable multimedia player, encoder, and streamer supporting many audio and video codecs and file formats as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols..

DVD-ROM drive reads CDs, but not DVDs Dell x-200


It shouldn't be a driver issue. DVD drives are natively supported by XP. What software do you have installed for playing DVD'? Windows Media Player 11 would be excellent, and it's free from Microsoft. PowerDVD and WinDVD are also good, but you have to buy them.

My Acer Aspire 5315 does not play DVD films.


Hi,
to play dvd films, ensure your laptop has a media-player installed. i.e windows media player 9-10-11 et,c. also you could check in My computer/control Panel/system/device manager to see if there any yellow exclamation marks, next to any devices. if there are. you,ll need to re-install drivers for the device.

if this solves your problem, please rate as fixya.

thankyou for using the forum.

By default, Windows does not include a DVD decoder (which is what you need to watch DVDs).
If you are using WMP10: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/plugins.aspx
If you are using WMP11:

Install the codec and you will be able to watch DVDs!
