    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.
