If your version of Vista does not contain Media Center and you want to play back DVD video and files, you must first install a hardware or software DVD decoder on your system.
Its talents include playing music and video files from online sources or local drives (including DVDs), playing online radio and TV stations, displaying specialized web pages, organizing your music files (MP3s and WMAs), burning music CDs, copying and syncing to portable MP3 players, and providing a conduit to online media shopping sites.
Windows Media Player can play the file types shown in Table 8.1.
If you insert a DVD and it doesn't run, that's probably the problem.
Installing a decoder is typically a simple software update you can download from the Web.
