I know this is the absolute most basic question, but how do I play DVDs on my computer? I have never played (music) CDs or (video) DVDs on my old computer in the past.
But now I have a new rig and want to watch DVDs on my new computer.
I have a LITE-ON DVDRW LH-20A1H attached to my Asus P5Q Pro mobo using an Intel E8500 chip. Am running Windows XP (Pro). The drive works fine as I can use it to play games.
I have downloaded and installed the Windows Media Player 11. But there must be more to the story??
Feel free to point me to a step-by-step guide for newbies.
Would also appreciate links to authoritative and objective comparative reviews of any additional software I need (free if possible). And/or whether I should replace WMP with something else (hard to resist as it is free).
