before you give me any grief about not searching for this in the forums, I can't, as i get an error message because the word DVD is under the minimum 4 letter search criteria. So here goes.

Can anyone please tell me how i can play DVDs on it. I have tried WMP11, Divx player, Quicktime, realplayer, and none of them will play DVDs. i have been watching HD movie trailers with my laptop connected up to my 47" LCD HD TV, and had heard that PCs could upscale DVDs, so i just wanted to see what sort of picture quaility it would be.

Download VLC player. This will play almost anything. A bonus is that it is free too.
