First, Windows Media player cannot play DVD. Then, make sure that before you try anything to examine or fix your DVD player, it's suggested that you make sure the disc you are trying to play is intact and well.

For the no disc issue, there are always some common fixes that you can apply to make it functions normally. Here is how you can try.

Step 1:Press the "Eject" or "Open" button on the DVD player to disc tray to determine if it opens easily and does not appear jammed or hindered. If the disc tray appears to open slower than usual or fails to open, the disc may not sit flush in the tray or otherwise be seated properly. Use your hand to pull out the disc tray slowly if it does not open on its own and then reseat the disc. Close the disc tray and press "Play" on the DVD player again to see if reseating the disc in the tray corrects the "NO DISC" error.

Step 2:Remove the disc from the DVD player. Use a lint-free cloth and some denatured alcohol or water to clean the disc and remove any dust or smudges that may prevent the player from reading it properly. Reinsert the disc into the player and press "Play" to see if cleaning the disc fixes the "NO DISC" error.

If this still cannot work, you could try some other DVD player program such as Leawo Blu-ray Player and 5K Player.

Audio is choppy only when playing blu ray dvd, works fine with a regular DVD. OS XP, using Cyber link Power DVD 10 program.


What is your PC/Laptop specifications?

Running Blu-ray movies is very CPU power hungry. You may not have a good enough CPU to be running bluray dvds if both audio and video are clipping.

If it is just audio, I highly recommend the video player called "VLC". It plays everything and is undoubtedly the best video player currently available, and it is FREE.

You need an MPEG-2 Decoder, it's a software program that will allow you to play DVDs, download VLC media player from www.videolan.org (free), It is kind of like windows media player but will allow you to play DVDs

I have got power dvd version 7, I CAN SEE VIDEO BUT I CANT HERE THE VOICE


You can try playing that media using VLC Player rather Power DVD 7. Here's the link for downloading VLC Player version 1.1.4:
http://www.filehippo.com/download_vlc/

If the media plays in the same manner even with VLC Player version 1.1.4, then it could possibly an issue with the media or your speakers. Check with different video clips to isolate the problem.

For further clarifications, please revert!
Thanks for asking.

I have a Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook running WindowsXP with a DVD-RW/CD-RW drive. When I insert a DVD to play or to copy it won't work, it tells me I need a DVD decoder. How can I get one to solve this...


Hi,
Just download FFDShow and VLC MEDIA PLAYER.
Its extremely rare with this combination, to find a movie that wouldn't play,

get FFDShow here http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=5550&s=50
with ffdshow all you need to do is to run the setup file and click next repeatedly untill the setup is complete, and then just finish it, close it and its done, works on the background when movies are played.

vlc media player - http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

After you got these two installed, you should be able to play most if not all of the movies out there.


open vlc media player and then click File, dvd movie.
