    When I try to play a DVD or CD I get:

Please ensure that your DVD decoder is functioning properly by launching it from Start | Programs. Click “Help Online” for details on how to correct this problem

    Kenk: Do you have DVD player software installed?
    I googled your error and it seems that the software is the problem.
    Try uninstalling and reinstalling it.
