MCE not playing DVDs


format c:
3 Dec 2002
I reformatted my laptop two or so months ago, recently I popped in a DVD to play a movie and I didn't have the ability to do it.

I'm was, and am, a little confused, but I put the OS cd (MCE) in to the drive and poked around, couldnt find what to re-install.

Anybody know?

:: I did a search online but I guess my keywords too general or there arent any discussions on what I'm looking for -- couldn't find a procedure anywhere.

what you need is an mpeg2 decoder. you can get one by installing powerdvd or windvd. for something free and a lot less obtrusive, dscaler5 might work but it might not be "mce certified" or something...

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
