Windows Vista Home Bas. DVD decoder
Microsoft,

I have Windows Vista Home Basic installed on my computer. When I go to
play a DVD in my Windows media player, I get a message that says, "Windows
media DVD player cannot play the DVD because a compatible DVD coder is not
installed on your computer". What should I do to remedy this so that I can
watch and hear DVD's on my computer?

Thanks & awaiting your reply,

Install a MPEG-2 encoder. The catch 22 is you need to license. You may
find a free version on the web like in some codec packs, but these are
likely stolen or broke and will cause you all kinds of other grief.

Do you have a DVD player/burner on this computer?

If so, it's install disk may have a DVD player on it, but two
problems. First you need to install it, but don't, unless it supports
Vista, and right now most software that comes with DVD player/burners
don't support Vista yet.

So your only other choice is to buy some software that is certified to
run on Vista and can play DVD's, then if you also have a DVD
player/burner, you should be all set. The most popular packages are
Nero Suite 7 and from Roxio, Easy Creator 9 suite. There are other
lessor packages with watered down features.

If you have a less then up todate computer or one that is underpowered
the other problem is trying to play back DVDs on such a system often
results in disappointment and you'll end up with dropped frames, the
sound getting out sync and other bad things.
