Playing DVD's

When I insert a DVD, I get a scattered pattern of boxes on my view, though the sound will play. I have tried a couple DVD's.  My player says it will play DVD's and the computer we selected was supposed to be equiped with a DVD player.

Re: Playing DVD's

Tempests, welcome to the forum,


it would be helpful if you could post which ThinkPad and Operating System you have, even better post the Type and Model Number this will help members to help you. If it ends in CTO please provide some details about the ThinkPad. Please do NOT post your s/n.

Re: Playing DVD's

Windows hasn´t the right codecs on board from scratch.


Try a different player like VLC Player or Mplayer or download a codec pack.



Kind regards
