Hello,

I am running XP Pro and when I put in a DVD, it says "no decoder" is installed. Should I buy something like WinDVD? Is there another program that works?

Thanks for the help.

Hey Mack_Tech

You need a decoder to play DVD's on a computer. If your system has no DVD software installed, you will need to install a DVD decoder, otherwise DVD Video movies will not play. WinDVD is a decoder and I use it and recommend it:
