The issue is with expired codecs of your player. This is a software level issue. ***download the codec from http://www.free-codecs.com/K_Lite_Codec_...*** ***this should solve your issue***

If it's mpeg2 decoder thats needed, as far as i know you have to purchase this, unless you have a retail copy of 'Nero6' or similair which has it built in. But also make sure you have the latest version of Media Player10.

After inserting DVD movie I get message that it would not play in windows media player because of missing DVD decoder. I loaded all drivers off the LG disc, was there not a DVD decoder included or do I...

Windows Media Player, and many others, will not play everything, regardless of your hardware and it's supporting software.

To overcome this, I recommend a free media player such as VLC (Video Lan) which is free and has a huge amount of codecs and a multitude of other features, including the abilitiy to play most "Region Locked" movies. There are several other good free ones also such as GOM etc, but I prefer VLC due its' mutifaceted capabilities.

My Acer Aspire 5315 does not play DVD films.

Hi,
to play dvd films, ensure your laptop has a media-player installed. i.e windows media player 9-10-11 et,c. also you could check in My computer/control Panel/system/device manager to see if there any yellow exclamation marks, next to any devices. if there are. you,ll need to re-install drivers for the device.

if this solves your problem, please rate as fixya.

thankyou for using the forum.

DVD will not play, windows media player XP, when inserted in player. CDs play automatically but DVD does not.

Uninstall the media player,goto windows Market place and install windows media 11. its free and has all the new updates. Providing you have the correct system requirements. If not you can reinstall your old version at the same site and will probably have the required updates anyway.
