You are missing an MPEG2 codec. WMP does not play DVD natively. Go get a DVD software playing prog like Power DVD or Intervideo Win DVD.

That's right. MS cannot supply these codecs. You need to install a third party dvd player as suggested. This will have the codecs and Media Player will then work with dvd's. Did you not get any such software with your drive? Very unusual not to, unless its OEM.

A 'Google' will bring up plenty of 'Free' DVD players.
