dvd rewriter will copy a dvd but wont play one

  prestoni 14:29 10 Dec 05

I got a new pc from a computer fair with a combo dvd rewriter but hadn't realised how much you had to do to load all the drivers and ops systems etc. it is using on board graphics and I loaded all the software that came with it. I have succesfuly loaded family photos and burned to dvd with Nero6 and I have copied a dvd also. The problem is however the Dvd will noy play a Dvd to view on the monitor. I am a bit of a novice and wouldn't be suprised if it is my cock up. Any one got any clues please

What does happen? Errors?

Have you installed the DVD playback software (Power DVD, WinDVD etc?)

You will need software to play it. there is free software on the net, just tpye (free dvd software) into google or some search program.

Perhaps you just don't have the right software installed to view the DVD. There are a few free ones around, try here click here

I get media player to boot in auto but says it dosn't recognise the dvd try altering colours etc. It is possible I havn't installed dvd playback soft ware and dont recognise it on the disc supplied, i think I dowloaded power dvd and tried to no avail but will try again if required.
