This is mainly because Windows has dropped its support to provide Windows Media Player's built-in DVD codec for Windows 10 and above. To a large extent, Microsoft sees that the market is decreasing needs for a DVD drive, not to mention DVD playback service.

If you upgrade the Windows system from Windows 7 to Windows 10 or something, they may encounter the problem that indicates Windows Media Player won't play DVD. You can try Leawo Blu-ray Player to play DVD and Blu-ray without charging any cost.

Acer aspire 2930 DVD player only opens some dvds

Try Media player classic under k-lite codec pack. Then open video files on the dvd. If it doesn't help try another codec player. If nothing helps could it be that dvd player is not capable of multilayer dvd reading.

Dvds wont play on pc

You can install another DVD player software.
there are plenty of free players on the internet that you can download, or you can buy one at your local software dealer. Once you install this, the newer video codecs should be installed

Ibm t23 laptop dvd rom not reading some dvds

Sounds like you need a DVD decoding software, ie... winvid, interdvd, and powerdvd. Windows media player will play some DVD's, but many DVD's, especially newer ones, need an additional decoder in order to work. You will be able to find the software at filehippo.com, download.com, or IBM's support site. Keep in mind that burning software, ie... nero, roxio, and dvd shrink, have decoders in order to burn the DVD, so they will work as a decoder in conjunction with your media player.

My pioneer dvr-104 doesn't read my dvd movies... what can i do to fix this?

desoshade is right, its probably a lack of software for playing dvds, if your dvd burner may have come with some if not you can try goo media center for free and its legal (its an open source application) I believe you can find it on sourceforge.net, VLC media player may also help, but more than likely you need a codec that supports playing dvds, they do exist for windows media player but they may not all be free, free alternatives do exists though with and without breaking any laws. MPlayer classic may also be useful, its been a while since I've had to deal with this sort of thing, usually watch movies on my mac or tv anymore  hope some of this is useful. good luck.

I have a dell dimension 2400 series, now i find i cannot play dvds on it i get a note up 2 to say "windows media player cannot play dvd compatible dvd decoder not fitted " what can i do to...

Hi,
are you trying to play DVDs from a different region ?
PC DVD Drives, are region set to the computer, if you have a region 1 dvd drive, trying to play region 2 dvds et,c. it won,t let you. theres a couple of ways around this. go to Afterdawn ( on the web ) and download a region free dvd device.
Solution 2. try to obtain any updates or re-install windows media player. suggest player version 9 or above.

Mike @ compurepair.

p.s finally is to check that your drive, indeed supports DVD Or certain types of dvd media. i.e DVD+ Or DVD- some only support One type.
