DVD Decoder needed

  Midsman2005 22:46 17 Jan 2006

Dear Forum,

I have just obtained a new work laptop (I have admin rights on it so can install stuff, etc.)

I just went to play a DVD on it....and I was told I needed a DVD Decoder.

This laptop has Windows 2000 installed and has an ATI Radeon 9600 card. I have already installed Windows Media Player 9.

When I looked on the Radeon website I noticed a download for a DVD Decoder...but it said I would need the original installation CD that came with the graphics card....being a work laptop....I dont have this CD.

Is there any way around this?

Windows cannot play DVDs without a DVD codec, this is only really available by installing 3rd party DVD software. Try click here
