what kind of DVDs . . .

by Who Am I Really In reply to DVDs Not Recognized

DVD movies
only XP Media Center edition could play DVDs from a stock install

XP Home and Pro require a third party app with an MPEG-2 decoder
or a stand alone MPEG-2 decoder

Also what Codecs do you have installed?

But mostly with XP you need a Dedicated DVD Player and not rely on Media Player to play your DVD Format Movies.
