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'.

My windows media player wont play movies


Try downloading VLC player, if this does not play your videos then it is your Drive that needs a driver update or has gone bad. If VLC player does play it or asks you to install mpeg2 codecs, then all you need to do is google "mpeg2 codec download for windows media player X" (X being the current version of WMplayer you are using). The reason behind this problem is that Windows media player does not come preloaded with a full library of codecs, there are packages of codecs that you can download such as divx codecs that will have the majority of commonly used video compression decompressors.

I bought a new Lenovo pc with Window Vista.


If its windows media player that isn't playing the dvd's then you'll need to go here and get the latest version of windows media player and also get the latest codecs.

If you have a different dvd player that came with your laptop, then use the other dvd software and see if you can play your dvd that way.
