DVD's Wont Play

  Terry-1227646 13:34 04 Jan 2008

Please help, I cannot seem to play DVD's anymore on my pc, I have tried window media player version 11 which comes up with the following error "Windows Media Player cannot play DVD video. You might need to adjust your Windows display settings. Open display settings in Control Panel, and then try lowering your screen resolution and color quality settings" (which i tried doing but didnt work) I have also tried Real Player which just doesnt play the DVD and Nero which again want play it. I do however have videos loaded on my hardrive which work fine, can anyone explain why I can't see to play DVD's they use to work but now dont? thanks!

I don't understand why they used to, but don't now, but click here for codecs and see how you get on.

As *Raven* has said, there are lots of alternatives out there, just do a few searches.

Does a CD play?

I'm thinking it could be to do with the DVD drive, I will check to see if a CD works, thanks!
