ok,

You need to install third party dvd player software, eg. powerdvd , windvd in order for windows media player to use the drive.

PowerDVD is like $30.00AU on ebay so it isnt all that expensive.

Hope this helps.

Never tried anything from there, but the first thing seems to come with a dvd codec. The best thing about it, it's free!
