My dvd won't play

Can anyone tell me why my DVD won't play on my PC? I get a message from media player saying I don't have a compatible DVD decoder installed?
Can I get one?

Thanks for the links - is this something I have to pay for? Not that I am tight you understand, its just that I assumed that i could just pop in a DVD and off it would go.

No the codecs should be free. Just be carefl when you find the required codec which site you get it from. some may charge.

Cheers guys - I'll go and have a look. I have a new PC with two players so I assumed all I would have to do is stick the DVD in and off it would go - silly me - duh. Blinking computers.
