i am still stuck with this problem despite making enquiries at PCWORLD ( yep am that desperate) and other places. I am now getting a message on Windows MP that i need a decoder PCW says that WMP #10 should have one. I have loaded DIVX player and that doesnt let me in either. I have learnt that the mat****a is DVD-. but am told that the BBC dvd i am trying to play it would not make any difference. The WMP site keeps offering to sell me a decoder if i paid for one. If i paid for one would the problem go away or is the problem not with a decoder but the dvd drive?

Am i right in thinking tho that i really need codecs or do i need a decoder AND CODECS
