    ok, so normally I can play DVDs fine on my computer. The last time I did must of been about half a year ago though. Ive been trying today though, but media player comes up and says "Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer." What the hell does that mean?!? I followed a link for "web help" and it basically says that that I have to buy some DVD thing. I dont want to buy anything, because before I could play DVDs fine on this computer!

    Any suggestions? Is there any free program I can download to watch DVDs???
