My dvd’s wont play. Why? Short answer: It’s cheaper to remove DVD play back to get around the price of the codecs. To get DVD play back you have to purchase Pro Pack or Media Center Pack. Well, that’s fine for people like me that would rather use VLC Player, WinAmp or some other third party software to begin with. I’ve never been a fan of Media Center or Media Player.
Third Party Options
You can always use a DVD Converter to turn your DVD into files that the Windows Medial Player will play.
