Because there are so many tech 'gurus' on FR, I wanted to see if anyone can recommend an upload which will allow my PC to play DVDs. It is a Dell. Windows XP. The system is appx 6 years old.

I no longer have TV but would like to be able to view movies on my desktop. I ran a search on it but couldn't find any answers that are specific.

Thanks in Advance!

Ummm, just pop in a DVD and it should launch Windows Media Player, then watch.

If it were that easy I wouldn’t have posted this. I just keep getting an error message and it will not play.
