    During the summer I built a comp from parts (newegg!). I got the regular windows xp and lo and behold, I go to watch a dvd tonight and its tellin me that I need a dvd playin program. All of the ones I found so far cost money or are spyware infested. Anyone got any good free ones?

    most DVD-Roms come with a bundled player (such as PowerDVD). where'd you get your DVD?

    only if you install a dvd (mpeg2) codec, which is included with PowerDVD.
