I struggled through this problem a couple of weeks ago. I accidentally deleted PowerDVD from my laptop and went insane. I thought DVD decoders were
free. HELL NO! You have to end up buying one. I search ALL OVER THE INTERNET. No luck. Nothing for free.
I only recommend 2 programs:
If you have Warner Bros. DVDs, I heard that WinDVD comes with those. You might want to check...
Otherwise, just go buy them. Don't be dumb like me and erase them...
Staples, Officemax and those kinds of places should carry the software.
Hope I was able to help.
Oh, yeah! I forgot to say... I ended up getting WinDVD 5 Platinum. I think WinDVD & PowerDVD are the two best. Ok, NOW I'm done.
