    i have a DVD-R drive. the DVD software that came with my Dell won't re-install properly. i figure there must be free software out there. i don't need bells and whistles, i just want to be able to play DVDs.

    thank you

    i determined that i was lacking a DVD DECODER, a.k.a. MPEG-2 DECODER. One came installed on my computer, but I had reinstalled Windows and had not known about the necessary DVD DECODER. It was on a CD that came with my computer. I ran the CD and voila, problem solved.
