Decoder for Liteon 163D

Hi, I’m am brand new newbie!

I’ve just moved my CD/DVD Rom from one PC to another. Trying to play DVDs, I get the message that I need to install DVD software onto the PC.

Where can I find a suitable decoder (I think that’s what i need?) for Windows 2000. I’ve been looking for a couple of hours before asking such a simple question. :confused:

Hope someone can help,


Firmware next!

VLC media player will work and it is free.

Thanks for this. It works but not seamlessly - I’ll have some more thoughts.


WMP does not playback DVD video without having installed additional commercial DVD decoder software.


I thought it was pretty seamless if you opened the disc with it.
