    Hi Folks

    Need a bit of help from you techy lot please:Wink:

    Ive got an oldish laptop that i take on holiday to keep in touch with work :cry:.

    Its got a dvd player in it and it runs Windows XP and has Windows Media Player 11 for XP installed.

    We are off on holiday on Monday (smashin!!!!) :thumb: but the plane does not have any entertainment and my daughter would like to watch a DVD on the lappy.

    I tried putting a DVD movie in last night to try it but it kept saying there was no DVD decoder installed to watch it :Eeek: :Doh:

    I thought everything you needed was pre-installed or on Media 11 but i guess i was wrong :Blush:

    Anyone know where to get the DVD decoder thingy I need from (preferably gratis!!:thumb::Rofl1:)

    Thanks in advance as always :thumb:
