    Re: Issues playing DVD movies on windows media player on HP desktop

    hello guest !!

    you are right,there is no issuewith your CD as well as your cd drive.
    since window media player supports very less video file formats like: .AVSA or .DAT and some of very few.

    so if you are playing CD/DVD.
    it generally have format: .AVSA or .DAT.
    but some of these formats are highly compressed that they cant be read properly by media player and it pops out error while playing or in the begining sometime also.

    so it is better for you to play any CD/DVD vidoes using CYBERLINK POWER DVD or VLC player.

    thanks for posting in EALP.

    Hello

    This kind of problem generally occurs due to bad DVD or Media player does not support format in which video DVD was write. To overcome this kind of problem i suggest you few things

    >>Firstly you need to check your movie DVD is correct or not and don't have any scratches n the surface. Sometime this type of problem might be caused by bad DVD. If your DVD is in correct format and still have an error massage than go to next steps.

    >>Here the point of concern is that your windows media player did not support the format in which movie DVD was write. To solve that you have to download Windows Media Player Coded Pack from the Microsoft website. Just download it into your computer and install. After installing of Coded pack all video file will supported by Windows media player.

    Try these thing one could be solve your problem.....
