My mother in law who has a Dell Dimension 2350 series recently purchased a dvd burner that connects via USB. She did not have a dvd player originally in her computer just a cd rom. When she tries to play a dvd in her new drive it says that her video card does not have the driver to support viewing dvds. The video card is Intel® 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller. Can anyone help me find the driver that might solve this problem.
Thanks

Video cards are not the only devices which have drivers.

Programs (e.g., AV, firewall, video, music, etc.) also have drivers. I suspect that your message relates to a program driver, not a video card driver.

The K-Lite codec pack seems to work for many with WMP.
