Hi. I have a new NEC2500 and have yet to get it to play DVDs. At first, it said it didn’t have the software to play DVDs. I installed everything from my NERO CD and now, when I put a DVD in, the cursor (a cute CD) freezes and I have to restart XP. I’m sure I’m doing something wrong, but haven’t a clue. It’ll play CDs fine. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
It still sounds like you haven’t got the software installed to play DVDs.Like Windvd or PowerDVD,etc.
Hope this helps.
Yep, that’s what I finally figured out. Tried a different CD and it gave me the needs “Compatible DVD Decoder” message. I downloaded a trial of InterVideo, but will look for something less pricey. Thanks for your suggestion.
