Hi everyone. After reinstalling Windows Xp Home I am having trouble with Media Player. I am able to play all video formats on my computer except for DVDs. When I try to play a DVD, Media Player opens and I recieve this message in a pop up box: "Windows Media Player cannot play the DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer." I looked around for DVD decoder plugins for WMP but you have to pay for them? I have never had to pay for a DVD decoder to play DVDs in media player before the reinstall. Any help would be very much appreciated! Happy Holidays!

Did you have some other DVD player installed at one time, like Cyberlink PowerDVD. That would have come with a decoder. If not, you could get VLC Media Player http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
Thanks Stantley! I went through my system CDs which came with the PC. Sure enough there was a Cyberlink re-install disk. Stupid mistake on my part. :)
