Answers :

Best thing to do would be downloading Windows Media Player 11. It has the latest features plus it'll ask you to download the latest codecs as well.

Go to the page to get Windows Media Player 11 right here.

Click on downloads and then follow the directions from there.

After its installed then go ahead and as long as your dvd player is working and seeing the dvds thats being put in the drive, your movies should work now.
