No. The codecs are included in the firmware and because of that if you want more codecs you must update the firmware with one that is provided by the manufacturer of the player.

Does it read them and just not play them this could be codecs are needed if you have Windows Media player you will need certain codecs in order to play some movies. I use a product called VLC Media Player and use it as my default player as well as XPBurner for all my burning needs. XPBurner works with Win7 if that is what you have.

It is most likely codecs if this is not the case you might consider a fresh boot unplug the computer from the wall then push the power button in for 3-5 seconds then plug the computer back in and restart the system it should fix this issue. If this does not work and you have installed codecs proper then you may consider a new combo drive. This may be the ultimate issue I hope this assisted you. Click the links I have sent to you to possibly fix this issue. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer.

Download and install this.. Klite Mega Codec packs.
Restart your computer and play the movie with Windows Media Player or with the player that's included with Klite Mega codec packs.. They will play smoothly without any further codec problem.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Cannot watch dvd movie

Possibly you do not have codecs installed, they allow either windows media player or other players to decode the dvd then play it. If you want to save the hassle of searching for them, get Cyberlink DVD is a DVD player that strictly plays DVD's without having to get a codec or decoder. OR...If you have Win XP, their is a small DVD Codec specifically designed for Windows Media Player called "DVD Decoder Pak for Windows XP" the size is 1MB.

I downloaded windows media 11 but wont play dvds says missing dvd decoder what can I do?

i guess that's due to a missing codec.Get klite codec pack free online.Just run it once you download it and it gives you codecs for just about every possible media type.but i will highly recommend you download VLC player and/or classic media player, (good news is these are both free and often play almost every other stuff that windows can't)this should definitely do my solution.thanks!

Cant play dvd on my emachines d725 What should i do

It is possible that proper codec software is not installed on your computer to play dvd's. You can install it from this link

Also it is possible that the lens of the drive has gone bad to read dvd disks.Most all modern DVD players and drives actually have a dual element laser-diode, one side optimized for cd/cdr, the other optimized for dvd.

Cd audio can hear but no dvd audio

First check that the 'Wave' slider in the volume control is not too low or muted.

Check in the DVD player software that you have the correct DVD audio stream selected.

Then suspect the audio codec that should have been installed with the DVD player software.
