Hey Jesselover, if you're gonna do that marginally legal stuff, don't tell everyone! What you need is a codec fromhttp://www.free-codecs.com/download/Stinky_MPEG_2_Codec.htm. If it still doesn't play go to www.divx.com and download their codec pack, player and instructions. The key to all this is to find out the format first, make sure you have the codec installed to play it, and if all else fails there is a program divx to dvd that you can find with a websearch. In case you haven't figured it out by now, it's not nearly as simple as advertised! Also make sure your virus and spyware protection is up to date, and scan those files before you open them. They are famous for unwanted presents.
