Yeah, I just bought a brand new HP DVD-RAM/ROM R-W drive and I want to watch a DVD on my computer but Windows Media Player says I need to download a DVD decoder or something like that and they all cost money...I tried to install the software that came with my DVD-ROM and that didn't have it on there. I did notice that one of the downloadables for 20 dollars was called NVidia PureVideo and I noticed on my XFX Geforce 7600GS box, that it has the same logo, but I can't for the life of me find the right driver or decoder or whatever for W.M.P. so that I can watch a DVD! It's so frustrating. >_< grrrr I shouldn't have to pay an extra 20 dollars when this thing was already 70 dollars...

Oh I see...but shouldn't the DVD Rom come with a codec or drivers or something?? Or even my video card!? Heck, it even says "Turn your computer into a home entertainment center" on the box of my Video Card, you'd think they would put the right drivers and/or codecs in with the normal installation...
