Dvd decoder not installedhow can i install it??need a answer immediately


If it's about you not being able to play DVD's with your media player, it's because you need a media player capable of doing that - i use  http://www.videolan.org/vlc/  .
Click on Windows, in the next window select the closest location to you, select Save (nor Run) and wait for it to completely download, close the browser and launch the installer, set it as your default media player. 
When the install is finished just play whatever you want with it.

Decoder missing, can't play dvd


Your DVD drive should have included a dvd playing software, such as WinDVD or PowerDVD. If it didn't, you may need to purchase one of these or install the Elecard DVD Codec for free. This link may work:

Dvd decoder


YOu need a 3rd pary dvd player software installed, Like power dvd. Power DVD , Win Dvd etx, you should have gotten a copy of a player when you brought your computer, If you didnt or cant find it you can download one, many have trial versions or you can get a free one.

If you get a trial version of Power Dvd it automatically installs a dvd decoder. even if power dvd trial expiers and you cant use it anymore you will still be able to play the dvd's on windows media player cause the decoder will remain there and media player will have axcess to it :)
