Viewing DVD-R......Help!

  Angela-231919 15:45 19 Jul 05

I have been given a set of DVD-R discs but when I try to play them i only get the sound coming through and "pattern graphics" not the film which should be on. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? When I got them I was told thay were only for a PC and do not play on a DVD player, if that makes sense!

try installing the k-lite codec pack a google search should find it sounds like a codec problem

Some more info..I just don't know what it means!
When I try to play disc I get "error downloading codec" any ideas on what I need to do?

if it is media player, click on help on the dialogue box that gives you the error. Another box will appear and with a link to a codec site.
