    Hi,

    You get this error message if you try to play a DVD on a computer with Windows Media Player that has not been upgraded to play DVDs. Your computer is missing so called DVD decoder.

    How do you find out if you have a decoder?

    Go to your Start menu and click Run.

    Then, type dvdupgrd /detect and press ENTER.

    How do you upgrade your decoder?

    Go to your Start menu and click Run.

    Then, type dvdupgrd /upgrade and press ENTER.

    Can your drive even play the type of DVD you are trying to play?

    You can check this on the MS Hardware Compatibility List.

    This website provides all the details with a link to the Compatibility List as well as to codec pack and other details: http://www.maxi-pedia.com/Windows+Media+Player+can...

    Good luck!
