:tazz: hi ya ....

yep in order to play a dvd you have to have two things ...one is obvious lol a dvd player ...the second a little bit tricker to lay your hands on...a mpeg2 codec ....most dvd formats are in mpeg2 and while you maybe able to get a mpeg2 codec from www.microsoft.com/downloads this sometimes is troublesome ...one way around this is to buy some recognised dvd playing software (personally i use powerdvd which is in my opinion excellent) which seems better suited to playing a whole range of dvd movies ...but try the windows site i mention above and look for codec packs

hope this helps ;)
