Yes, You will need to purchase a software DVD Player such as the likes of Cyberlink Power DVD or Intervideo WinDVD,

However, Cyberlink and Intervideo sell Windows Media Player DVD Playback codec packages for $14.95 which will allow you to directly play DVD Movies on your PC.

This is not free since there are licensing involved in many decoder codecs.

,toshiba tecra 8100


Oh..that one is hard to do specially to novice. I would suggest not to do it. It would be hard for you to dismantle your laptop bit by bit and it is very risky. You might it end up damaging your laptop. Take it to a qualified technician to get it done. okay..:-)

How do I add more ram to my toshiba tecra 8000 laptop to play dvd


These are the system requirements for the program I don't think that your computer model meets them. Anyway your computer takes SDRAM.
  • PIII 800 MHz processor or faster
  • 128MB RAM
  • Minimum 50MB hard disk required for installation.
  • 16 MB video card with graphics overlay; 800 x 600 video display, High Color 16-bit
  • Windows-compatible sound card and speakers
  • Windows-compatible mouse
  • DVD-ROM drive, or DVD writable drive
  • DirectX 9.0b or later
MyDVD Studio Deluxe is the right product for systems operating on Windows 98 or ME.

Closed Captioning


Turn your DVD player on with no disc inside. Use your remote and press the Setup button. From there go to audio and there should be some settings for closed captioning.

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 :)
