    Have you tried playing a DVD with another drive on that computer?

    Do you have the proper codecs installed?

    DVD problem?

    Hello Frede:

    I have the same problem. I am unable to play dvds in my external player, I dont have an internal player because its a carpc. I have downloaded xpack codec, supposedly it works but the activation code isnt entering correctly, go figure. I noticed you posted back in january, have you found a solution to this problem I would appreciate it greatly to know my self.

    Blazingbird,

    Try this codec:

    It's designed for WMP.
    Looking forward to picking up a '99 Ford Focus and stuffing a CarPC into it! I'm going for the OEM look. If anyone has tips or are willing to help me, please feel free to contact me!
