Question about Computers & Internet

I have a Dell GX280 and I need to use it to show dvds to my class. However, when I pop dvds in Windows Media Player pops up, but doesn't play them? Is there something I can do to fix this or might there be another program I can download, (i.e. RealPlayer, etc.) to help me fix this issue I'm having?

It seems you don't have any codecs... The problem is not in windows media player.
Just install a codec pack like http://www.free-codecs.com/download/codec_pack_all_in_1.htm

Hope to solve your problem.

My new dell d620 will not play dvds


You will need to install what is called a codec pack but the easiest way to solve your problem would be to download and install a free program called VLC media player. VLC will play just about any DVD without a problem.

I just hung up on the 6th technician at Dell!!!! Yes, No.6!!! And sorry to say, being female, I literally was in tears. I took my 1018 out of the box...ordering it because I wanted only to check email and...


Make sure first your drive is in fact a DVD player and not just a CD player. If you are using windows xp you can click on start button, click on control panel, open system, select hardware tab and click on Device manager. The picture below you will see if your computer came with a DVD or just a regular CD player. If its a DVD it should come with a software like PowerDVD or Cyberlink that you need to install. If you dont have any of these or they are not working you can try downloading VLC player using this link http://download.cnet.com/VLC-Media-Player/3000-13632_4-10267151.html.

I dont know how to play dvds on ancer 5610z


Here's something to try:

1) Make sure you are inserting your DVD in a DVD drive. (Usually has a DVD logo on the tray.)
2) With the computer on, insert a DVD in the DVD drive and wait for a box to pop-up. (If a box does not pop up, Go to "My Computer" and double-click on the DVD drive.)
3) Choose to open in a software capable of playing DVDs. (Windows Media Player, PowerDVD, ect.)

If the the software does not play the DVD, this could indicate a missing codec or a hardware problem.
