Thanks Budapest. You are a great help. So I downloaded the Codec pack 4.2.5 STANDARD. After installing it my DVD did not play with Windows 9 media player. It said it encountered an error and will close.
Then I tried the 321 media player classic, I guess it came with this download. But I got the same error message. Then I downloaded the free VLC player 0.9.4 and installed it. At first I got the same error message again. But after a few tries it played one of my DVDs just fine.
Actually I think it is a great DVD player. As one can speed-up plying, just like with VCR tapes. And one can easily toggle to play in full screen mode. But unfortunately when I tried another DVD the video and sound were all broken up. Then I tried playing disk one, of two, but got the same error as above. But disk 2 played just fine.
Now this brings me to my question: Should I maybe had downloaded a higher Codec pack? Or what? I don't want to do any fancy stuff at all. All I want to do is to insert the DVD and it starts playing.
