    You mean you installed a DVDROM?

    You will still need a software dvd player (software) as the codec contains licenced technology from Dolby and therefore cannot be free:

    http://www.intervideo.com
    http://www.gocyberlink.com

    Those sites have trials for WinDVD and PowerDVD respectively.
     
  4. Get WINDVD 4 plus,, it has excellent sound and video codecs!!!:D :cool:

    Well there will be complications as both sets of filters will be registered, but if you manually register/unregister them you should be fine.

    Did you just buy it or did ya get it from someone?

    If ya bought it from a Computer Shop/Store you sould go back and get the Software from them. It sould have come with. Even an OEM Drive still comes with the software CD.

    And if ya got it from a friend or someone else ask them if they have the Software for it.

    Otherwise yer gonna have to D/L it, either in a trail version or buy it.
