DVD playback problem

\015 My windows media player 10 still does not play a DVD even after downloading a decoder and installing it. What do I do?\015

Answers :

Download the Combined Community codec pack 2008. This should get it to work. If this doesnt do it, your pc probably doesnt have DVD playback ability. Has it ever played a DVD before?...Hope this helps
