Why can't I play DVD's on my computer?

Posted: 01-26-2009, 04:14 AM
When I put a DVD into my labtop, it won't play and Windows Media Player comes
up and a notification pops up saying it is unable to play the DVD. Why is
this happening?

Why can't I play DVD's on my computer?

what is the exact wording of the error?
it may be a scratched DVD are you sure you have a DVD player installed? and
not a CD drive?

I have faced this probloem (or a very closely related one?) several
times. After spending considerable time fruitlessly googling for
solutions, I discovered "VLC media player" which could the DVDs,
without any trouble at all. Available free at
http://ftp.free.org/mirrors/videolan...9.8a-win32.exe
I suggest you try it out.
