The power to your DVD player is over taxing your system and forcing your system to reboot.

Power connectors are come in sets off the power supply referred to as legs. You will want to unplug the power connector to your DVD Player and use a connector from another set of wires bundled separately from the current one.

Any further questions on this, please ask me, I can talk you through it unless you are using the PC with the problem to contact us here at Fix Ya.

    Hello,
    Worldvet here again. Before you attempt to switch over power cables to your DVD player power off your PC and disconnect the power cable from the back of the PC.

Windows media player throws error when I play any audio


As you may have already notice, there isn't a problem with your driver.
However to gain a better understand the problem you rule out a couple of things. However, if the this problem is only present in windows media player. Then you should try another play i.e. VLC media player.

1. Go to you device manager and make sure the device is working properly. If not try uninstalling the device, restarted the computer letting windows discover the device again.

2. Next go to windows media player file (press "alt" key to get toolbar in newer version. Select options -> devices select your speaker -> properties and be sure that your audio device is available and selected.

3. Finally if all these options has failed, please use an alternative media like the one mention above (VLC media player).

I hope this have been a great help in your troubles. Please provide feedback on the solution.

Cannot play need an compatible dvd decoder


Hi, I think I can Help you today with this.

Most dvd players require decoder software in order for them to work but fortunately, there are several free programs out there that will work for you in this matter.

I recommend VLC, as it is a free program that not only will allow you to play the dvd, but has features for video, audio and sync control as well.

If you don't like that program, you can also try Real Player, Or Divx plus.

Both of these programs are free, and they have the proper dvd decoder software in them as well.

Also, if you can download a program called k-lie codec pack, it may very well fix your problem, without havung to get any of the other software, and you can then play your dvd's using Windows Media Player

I hope this helps you out.

I have purchased an external dvd writer for my netbook but unfortuntely when i try and play dvds the message- unable to play as no decoder installed appears on the screen. Which decoder would you...


Try this link to install K-lite codec pack:
http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=5881&s=42
It also inclides Media Player Classic.
To play DVD open the program, drag the folder VIDEO_TS from your DVD disk and drop it in the program's window. Double click on the picture to toggle full screen and window modes.

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!

Can not playr dvd using windows media player


Microsoft's Media player won't plat DVD's. The reason is because the VOB format used by dvd is from the entertainment industry, whereas DivX, AVI etc are from the computer industry. To play DVD's on your computer, you need dvd player software such as Cyberlink. Alternatively, you can download the codecs required from Microsoft, but these are third pary programs you have to buy.

Cannot play dvds. says my Windows Media Player cannot play the DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer.


Chances are you need the proper codec to run the DVD. Software companies often write their own 'interpreter' software to read the format they use to encode videos/music files.

Trying doing a search on the internet for the type of file format Windows Media Player is trying to run, then look for the codec for that format. Unless the format is copyright protected, Microsoft should have the codec available on their website.
