Running Windows 98.

Hoping to play DVD's on my computer, I have installed DivX player version 2.1 When I load the DVD the green light comes on, and then goes out after about 5 secs. When I click the "Play" button on the player I get a message saying that there is no disc in D drive. Please, what am I doing wrong? Thanks.

ps. Could you please tell me what a "skin! is too. ?

Have you got a DVD Player? Anyway I'm not sure that DivX will operate as a 'real' software DVD player.

DiviX is actually a codec used for encoding and playing .avi files - as above you need proper DVD software to play DVDs.

A 'skin' is the GUI of a media player,ie the shape,colour,layout of buttons,etc - what it looks like on your screen.
