    Thankyou buddy but my problem is not to do with sound. The sound in Media Center plays just fine... But everytime I try to watch either a Demp DVD or a real Disc DVD Media Player stops ans says in a Window *Media Center has stopped working* then it has two tabs , debug, or .close..

    Basically a pain in the neck.. before you suggest.. No I will not reinstall Vista (just did it a month ago) Microsoft or someome must know what is wrong here as others have posted simarlar



    Cheers Mike I hope you can help me?

    thanks buddy but *no go* Im going to persist with finding a way. You would think Compaq Microsoft Vista would have a separate folder for Windows Media Center.... anyway whether I try the Demo Apollo 13 DVD (inside Media Center) or my own DVDs it still stops (after trying momentarily) and says *Windows Media Center* has stopped working



    thanks for your efforts anyway Mickyscott

Media center does not play cds or dvds please help


You have to check your CD/DVD Rom to make sure the device is not faulty.

Open your Windows Explorer, insert any CD/DVD to see whether your CD/DVD is able to read the the disk.

If it cannot read the disk, most probably the CD/DVD rom is faulty and you have to replace it.

I cannot watch dvds on my windows xp only cds


I'd be sure it does accept DVD. The face plate on the CD/DVD drive typically have the logos printed or stamped on it of the supported formats. Look for the DVD logo. Following link shows example internal desktop drive. Logo in center of drawer is for DVD.

Also try other DVDs to be sure you didn't have a bad one.

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.

When i click on burn from the windows dvd maker an error message comes up indicating that my blank media is not recordable. I have tried using dvd-r and dvd+r.


Try to use different program to burn your dvds, try to use Nero, but this msg also means that Your DVd drive is not burner double check from the device manager if its says read only this means it cannot burn, it has to say write too.

there is no problems about your system. Its maybe your systems is lack media "codecs" that enhance your DVD files or Movies to play. maybe you should download any HD dvd codecs and install to your system. or may search google the "media player classic" and use as your player or VLC player preety cool player for almost movies.
