Intervideo Win DVD Software preinstalled in Thinkpad R500

I recently bought a Thinkpad R500 and it came with video and DVD player software preinstalled.  The problem is that it doesn't work.


I tried with two new DVD movies and there is no way the software can play the movies.


Can anyone provide feedback on the solution?


Thanks in advance

You can try to reinstall Intervideo WinDVD software, there is a copy of the software under SWTOOLS folder in your C:drive. Intervideo WinDVD isn't the greatest dvd player, try something like VLC, just download it off the web.
