    OT:
    I need a simple program for playing DVD's on a computer. As in simple, I mean easy, as a 60 year old, who is a very beginner at computers, and takes very little system resources, as it it being installed on an AMD Duron 900 with 112MB of ram. :rofl::rofl::ugh::ugh:, I know, right. I looked on Old Versions, and Power DVD will only run for 30 days. I also installed Nero Show Time, without any burning software, and when a DVD plays the audio stutters. Thanks.

    Win XP doesn't have the drivers initially to run DVD read.

    I think WMPC comes with what you need - should autplay too if I'm not mistaken.

    Just buy the nVidia PureVideo. this will give you the codecs and decoders for DVD playback thru WMP.

    :ugh::ugh: Did you read the first post? Why the hell would I buy software for computer that probably now has negative value. And I am going to try VLC and see what happens. Thanks.
