    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

    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.

    and one at the end of the day.
    As many as possible squeezed in between
    to keep lifes troubles at bay.



    What’s another word for Thesaurus?
