Little known public issue...not all DVD's are playable in all DVD drives. DVD's can be recorded in what is know as + (plus) - (minus) single and double formats. The message says that your DVD player cannot understand the DVD that you put in the player. It may play on other players. See the Wikipedia article on DVD formats at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD

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


This is a common error message which means the "codecs" for your dvd decoder are not installed or up to date...DivX codecs can be downloaded and installed in "packs" for your specfic operating system that will remedy the problem.

Error message says I have no decoder. What now???


You'll need a decoder from a program like cyber dvd or win dvd. Nero also has one and sonic too. If the drive came with a dvd player program install it. You can also find them through windows media player at microsoft's website but they will cost a few bucks. Search the internet for dvd player software you may find one for free. I hope this helps you. If you are like me you might have a program in your pile of software cds'.

Decoder want let dvd play


The software technology used to decoded the format used by DVD's is owned, and has to be purchased in order to decode and playback the content. Hardware manufactures already have paid for this license for your "on-the-shelf-dvd player". You have another option... to download a DVD Player that includes a pre-licensed decoder.

Download this codec pack... http://www.codecguide.com/download_k-lite_codec_pack_mega.htm

Then, open the program called "Media Player Classic" that the mentioned codec pack will install.

Ibm t23 laptop dvd rom not reading some dvds


Sounds like you need a DVD decoding software, ie... winvid, interdvd, and powerdvd. Windows media player will play some DVD's, but many DVD's, especially newer ones, need an additional decoder in order to work. You will be able to find the software at filehippo.com, download.com, or IBM's support site. Keep in mind that burning software, ie... nero, roxio, and dvd shrink, have decoders in order to burn the DVD, so they will work as a decoder in conjunction with your media player.
