Do I need to buy a DVD decoder to play a DVD

Molly B


I have a new Dell with pre-installed Roxio Creater DE 10.2. I was able to register it, but when I tried to play a DVD I got a message that said "Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer."


Do I have to buy a decoder? Or is there one on my computer that has to be installed? If I have to buy one, what is the best one to buy. I see some are incompatible with Roxio, and I don't want that problem.


Would appreciate any help. I have never bought a computer with a CD or DVD drive that wasn't ready to use, so I am wondering if I really need to buy a decoder.
