    When I put a DVD into my DVD drive the following error message comes up:


    "Windows Media Player is currently unable to play DVD video. Try decreasing
    the number of colors displayed on your monitor or decreasing the screen
    resolution. For additional solutions, click More Information to access the
    DVD Troubleshooter."


    Can I update or do something so I can watch a DVD on mediaplayer. Id prefer
    not to install *another* player if MP will play - I dont need any other
    features, and dont want shareware, if possible.

    Thanks

    Uh I got PowerDVD5 bundled with a dvd burner.

    Froogle: http://www.google.com/froogle?hl=en&tab=wf&q=powerdvd US$5-6

    I'd prefer NOT relying on M$ for everything. IMO M$ has swiped just about
    everything new to XP from someone else, except for the core os.
