if you got a cd/dvd with your dvd drive then look on that.cdpaine said:When I try to play a dvd on windows media player I recieve an error message that I need to instal a decoder? The trouble shoot screen comes up and offers 4 or 5 possible down loads. Windvd, etc. They all cost and I was wondering if there is any free ones out there? I bought my laptop used and it didn't come with an decoder disk?
