Codecs

Hi

What you may need are the correct codecs. go to www.download.com and download the Windows Essential Codec Pack> its free and will allow Windows Media Player to play 99% of all video files

Also a better graphics card should be put in place as 16MB is very very low! most graphics cards come with 512MB now

Ahh OK you didnt mention a 8MB graphics card before hand. There are more tomgraphics cards than just the RAM alone as it depends on the RAM it has (weather it is GDDR, or DDR2 etc) and also what the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is but to be honest boosting your RAM and and graphics card will help alot

Also I would try out VLC player as we use this at the media company I work for and it is alot more efficent than Windows Media Player and can play more types of files. Also it is free as well so dont worry you dont have to pay anything for it.

It may be that your machine is simply way under spec.

512 MB RAM??. You might need to update your Ram....

If possible put in at least 1GB or 2GB of ram, then your dvd films will play more smoothly.
