Windows Media Player will not play DVD

Posted: 01-20-2009, 05:53 PM
Running XP SP3 and Windows media player ver 11.0.5721.5145
Plays all music well
When asked to play a DVD it will not find the disk and I get a message
'encountered a problem" and wants to send a report.
An identical computer works well.
I have another media player on this computer that works without protest.
Have tried removing windows media player 11 and downloaded and installed
again without any change.
Not critical to my well being but I would really like to get back to the
Windows media player if I can--Any suggestions will really be
appreciated-Thanks in advance--Mel

Go and get the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack Full 4.5.3 and you'll be good to
go: http://www.codecguide.com/download_mega.htm

Windows Media Player does not natively play DVDs. It will if it is provided
with the necessary codecs (hence probably why it worked on another machine).
Google should easily locate a suitable codec for you.
