I have a dvd writer in my pc.
Recently I have had some dvd`s sent to me from the States and because they are not PAL, I cannot play them through my recorder/tv here in the UK, so I thought I`d play them through my pc, without success.
It appears that I need to download a dvd player in order for the system to work.

Does anyone know of a free download I could use?

Terry,

[geek hat on]

Here's one of them:

VLC (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/)

I've used VLC with some success and been quite happy with it. Let me know how it works out for you. Especially with regard to those pesky region codes.

I bought a multi setting player from Maplin for just under 30. Works well with american and british DVDs which means I can watch them on the main TV instead of all crowding round the computer.

Now there`s a thought.
Thanks David. :thumbs_up:
