I just got a DVD drive for my PC off eBay, only one problem, there was no software with it and I cannot play DVD's as it asked for a decoder. I then downloaded one, but now it says I have to change my screen resolution, however it won't go any further than 800x600. Anyone know what I can do to resolve this?

Did you install the official one from the company website? If you did, try getting new video drivers.

Get the K-Light Codec Pack - it has everything any normal user needs. Then have a look on Sourceforge for a DVD player and get that.

Thanks, OK, I've done, it, but now I get no sound through the speakers! Volume has been set up and I can play CDs fine. Is there something else I need to do? Actually, if I turn the speakers right up I can almost hear it!

Queer - since I downloaded it they make you pay now. DivX will play DVDs though, and you've got that.

I've checked the volume settings, they're all fine, I have also downloaded the latest drivers made by the manufacturers TNA. I'm really stuck! When I plug in my headphones and put the volume on max I can hear it at the right volume, but usually when I put the volume right up on my headphones with music I'm deafened! I have played CDs to ensure things haven't messed up and CDs play fine.
