    Good day all,,

    I am working on a Gateway Pentium II laptop ,
    that has a Matshita DVD player in it. It will work
    with data CD's, music CD, however whenever
    I try to play a Movie.. no luck. When do I need
    to do to make the DVD work.. Windows Media Player
    is installed and we are working with Windows ME.
    However he only has 98 MB Ram... No problems in
    Device Manager...
