For some reason, suddenly i am unable to play DVD's on my MESH laptop. It came preinstalled with DVD decoders/codecs, and even after a complete format of the C: drive and clean install of XP i was still able to play DVD's. A couple of months later it suddenly decided to stop playing them. It said that there were now no decoders/codecs installed on my machine and that id have to look on the Windows Media Marketplace thing for some new one. However, the ones available here are ?70+ and im not going to pay that amount just to watch a DVD! I downloaded the Windows Media checkup utility and that said that the codecs, despite being there, where not active or something like that. :sigh: Any tips?
