The new versions of Windows Media Player will play DVD's, at least they work on my system. Personally, I use PowerDVD, since it came with several of the DVD burners that I have.
Who said Power DVD was free?smjsky said:No POWER DVD is NOT free. It usually comes with a brand NEW DVD-CDRW player as a software bundle package. Check out Blue Star Computer Fairs or search the net for cdrom dvd playrs to get the links to cheap hardware.
