  • DVD Video discs contain video track encoded in MPEG-2 format and audio track in AC3 format (typically).

    Windows XP normally does NOT come with the codec needed for DVD playback.

     

    Most likely an external codec pack such as K-Lite Mega Codec Pack will need to be installed:

    Once all necessary codec have been installed, Windows Media Player should be able to play the DVD.

     

    Or use VLC Media Player to play DVD:

    VLC has internal MPEG-2 codec built into the software itself.

  • hi sandman,

    i think you are receiving the error report only because of the mismatching of the file formats. i totally agree with tnguyenooa and i also think you should install K-Lite codec mega pack and it could be resolve your problems.

    bye.
