Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 530s Desktop Computer (ddcwfa2_5) IntelPentium dual-core processor E2160 (1MB L2,1.80G ?

I insert a DVD into my Dell Inspiron 530S and it does not play. Is my dell suppose to play DVDS?


Answers :

Generally the Dell 530's shipped with DVD burners, so they also play DVD's, You should have a program on your system like Intervideo, or possibly the Roxio player. If nothing else, you will have Windows Media player.
\015\012
\015\012Insert the DVD and you should get a box open up asking you to play or open folder and some other options.
As I said, you need to have the right media player. Real Player and Microsoft Media Player can not play DVDs because they don't have
compatible DVD decoder libraries. You need to install a real media player that can play everything.
Go to "http://www.videolan.org/vlc/", download the VLC player for your operating system, install it and then open your DVD with VLC media player. It will play!!!
