make sure that you have a dvd plugins installed on your media players. You can also go to this link and get free DVD player downloads that will do a good job of playing your DVD and these a free downloads: http://www.snapfiles.com/Freeware/gmm/fwvideoplay.html

If you want to use Windows Media player for DVD's, open Windows Media player, go to the Tools menu, click on Download, then plugins. You will get a web page that offers plugins for playing DVD's.

Cannot play DVD, cd video wont play to media player


not sure whether its a problem with the drive or a problem with windows media player. Take a can of air and blow some onto the laser of the dvd drive, this will make sure that there is no dirt or dust on the laser.

Once you do that put the dvd back into the drive. Give it about 20-30 seconds and then see if it tries to pull up the movie if it does and your getting errors from windows media player then we know that the drive is working cause its seeing the movie properly.

At that point, I would suggest downloading the latest version of windows media player.

Go here to download the latest version of Windows Media Player 11.

After doing that and installing it, try playing your movie again, in fact try several movies just to make sure. Windows Media player may want to download Codecs, if it does then let it. This will allow it to recognize dvds better and quicker.

If the codecs are updated and you still can't get it to see and play movies then I would suggest using a different dvd player such as Cyberlink PowerDVD located on this page:

My acer laptop was formated, since I got it back I cant play any dvd nor cd... I do have media player but message appear stating that the following files cant be played..


Yes, you have missed the codec files.

Download "Windows essentials Codec pack", below is the link

http://download.softpedia.ro/dl/7dd4bba62e0c22582981d1a9546796dc/4b45cc15/100071211/software/MULTIMEDIA/VIDEO/DIVX/WECPSetup.exe

Install this, you will be able to play almost all files in your windows media player.

I recommend you use VLC player, it can play any file formats both Audio or Video without any Codec and moreover it's completely open source. Below is the VLC player download link

http://www.videolan.org/mirror-geo.php?file=vlc/1.0.3/win32/vlc-1.0.3-win32.exe

That's it

My computer wont let me watch movies now. it keeps saying something about my dvd decoder wasnt installed.


if you bought the computer new or the DVD drive new , you whould have got a CD with it , most probably with something like WinDVD or something , if you have the specific CD with DVD software on it install it , as it will enable you to watch DVD's using Windows media player etc..

if you bought the computer second hand etc.. and or cant find the cd's a free solution is to download VLC media player (Download here) the only disadvantage about using this free solution is that you will have to play the DVD's through VLC you wont be able to use windows media player etc. to play DVD's as VLC does not require decoder software to play DVD's

otherwise you can purchase software such as WinDVD and this will enable you to play using your media player of choice.

Thanks!
