Does you DVD player read DVD+RW? If you do and still doesn't work, make sure you have an mpeg-2 decoder loaded up in your computer.

My LG DVD RW can not play DVD


Are you sure that your ROM can't play the disc or is it that you don't have a program to play the disc? To my knowledge Windows XP didn't come packaged with a DVD Decoder program; except for XP Media Center. There are some FreeWare programs out there that you can download, or you can pay for the program that decodes DVDs so that you can watch them. If your DVD isn't recognizing any type of DVD that you put into the ROM, then try playing a CD\DVD player cleaning disc in it. If that doesn't work, then you will probably have to get another DVD-ROM.

I have a DVD RW but cannot play back DVD/CD


If there was a CD-ROM of software provided with your hardware, install the "DVD-player" software that is on that CD.

Or, see: http://www.roxio.com/enu/products/cineplayer/decoder/overview.html

for a commercial add-on to Windows Media Player, that will decode the DVD, and play it.

Lite On LH-18A1P DVD RW


Copywrited DVD Movies require that an MPEG software DVD Decoder be installed on your system. Windows doesn't include any because of their Anti-Trust violations and court issues.
(not to be confused with other media players, and DVD players that are included with DVD Movies, such as HOTLLAMA, and Interactive - you still need a DECODER. This is a throwback to the early days of PC DVD ROM's that required a HARDWARE MPEG DVD DECODER be installed, usually in a PCI slot, and connected to your video card through the VESA expansion connector. Nowadays, the hardware is built into the DVD unit, but it still requires a software decoder to operate).

Every DVD ROM or Burner comes with one...usually "Cyberlink PowerDVD", and now Nero's included one in their bundled OEM package.
Any version of any one of these will unlock the "DVD Movie" features for all media player installed on your PC.
[oops, almost forgot, you need Nero 7 or better for Vista. Any Cyberlink should work for you].

If you don't have one, try borrowing one from anyone who's got one. You can also go the P2P route, and download one, if you're so inclined.
Good luck, and I hope that fixes your problem!

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 :)

Cant play DVD on CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive


Assuming you have tried different makes of cd or dvd disks, it's a classic drive failure problem where the laser can no longer burn or read dvd's, but may still be able to read cd's only. You will have to replace the drive, they are quite inexpensive, and very easy to fit.
