3000 G410 DVD Cannot be Played

2008-10-02, 17:49 PM
I have a new Lenovo 3000 - G410 2049 44Q Laptop. When trying to play a picture on DVD, I am unable to. A dialogue box opens and informs that "a compatible DVD decoder is not installed in my computer". This should have been installed by lenovo. Please help me.

Welcome to the forum.


I presume that you were using Windows Media Player when you got the error message. You need video codecs installed before Windows Media Player can read the different video files.


Try the link below to download free video codecs for both XP and Vista.




Once installed, you'll be able to play your DVDs with Windows Media Player. 


Alternately you can also install different Media player softwares to your computer such as PowerDVD, VLC player, DivX, etc... These softwares have the audio and video codecs already, so you can player different types of audio/video files.


Hope these help.
