    I have downloaded several dvd's that my pc will not play. It plays the sound, but not the visual. It tells me I don't have the codec needed. I downloaded the suggested codec, but they still won't play. What do I do?

    What are the file types (filename extensions) of the downloaded files?

    What was the original source disc (Commercially made movie DVD or some other type)?

    What player(s) are you trying to use?

    Sorry but we cannot assist you. You are asking help on viewing movies that you have downloaded. If you have downloaded them, then you will not have the copyright for doing so. This in turn, makes it an illegal act. Sorry but I cannot help you in this case. It is against the TSG Rules. You are on your own.
