I just installed a dvdrw into my computer and also Nero software. This was OEM and came with NEC dvd drive. When inputting a disc and trying to play it media player doesn't play saying there it is unable.
This is annoying and I can't get it to playing using the nero software as it says I need a plugin which has to be purchased.
no it doesn't have the codecs that are required [microsoft saves a little on licence costs by not including them]. they are available for purchase by download, or installing one of the players mentioned will install them, so you can then either use the player or media player.
