ARGHHHHH ! The Run Around


  1. Fried my Hard Drive…
  2. Replaced and re-installed WIN 2000 Pro…
  3. Went to play a DVD and… I am told that I didn’t have a DVD DECODER.
    I have searched for the decoder to no avail…
    I have a NEC DVD RW ND-1300A
    If anyone can be of help I would appreciate it!

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

What software are you using to play your DVDs? PowerDVD is one of the best softwares, and often is already included in the burner package.


install VLC player. And other than Power DVD etc, it is free software.
