Question about Compaq NC6000 C Notebook
Solve my problem
Posted on Nov 23, 2008
Hi Zekeo, To play DVDs you need a couple of things, a drive capable of reading your DVDs, a program to play them with and the correct Codec (compression/decompression) software to tell the program how to *read* the DVD. The ?no decoder found? error would tend to indicate you don?t have a program capable of playing DVDs installed or its not installed correctly. What program are you trying to play DVDs with? The free versions of Real Player and the newer versions of Media Player will work for the most part (I?ve had more success with Real) but they sometimes have problems decompressing the DVD in order to play it. In that case they typically will try to go to their respective web sites to update themselves and hopefully get the software they need. My experience with these programs is that if they are up to date and have the latest Codec?s they can generally play most N. American commercial DVDs, however, I have been let down at the wrong times by Media Player and occasionally by Real as well Current version of free Real Player (make sure your PC meets the requirements first): http://www.real.com/realcom/R?rel='nofollow' href=http%3A%2F%2Fforms.real.com%2Freal%2Frealone%2Frealone.html%3Ftype%3Drp10_dlp_1%26bb%3Dtrue%26pcode%3Drn%26opage%3Dreal_superpass%26src%3Drealhome_bb_0_3_1_0_0_1_0%2Creal_superpass%26pageregion%3Dright_bottom_text&pageid=unagi.8083642&pageregion=right_bottom_text&src=realhome_bb_0_3_1_0_0_1_0%2Creal_superpass&pcode=rn&opage=real_superpass Generally I prefer to rely on InterVideo?s WinDVD, for about $40 it?s been a great investment for me: http://www.google.com/search?q=freeware+dvd+player+software&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a Let us know if you have any other question on this topic and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
