Hi there,
I'm haveing a problem with my DVD drive.. When I go to play a DVD its wont work. I have tried different DVD playing programs and they dont work. When I play it on Windows Media Player it says

"Windows Media Player cannot play the DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer."

One of the other programs I have tryed to play it on is PowerDVD and it says

"Error Code: 80900004. ASPI for Windows is not available."

When I click the details for it it says

"Only a 32-bit CD-ROM driver is supported.Please make sure a 32-bit CD-ROM driver is installed."

If any one could be of any help with this problem it would be great. :tazz:
