What happened to my dvd decoder!!?

"Windows Media Player cannot play the DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer."

How do I fix this without purchasing one?

Windows Media Player doesn't play DVDs by default. I think you can install Dscaler and get the codec to make it work. I haven't tested it in a while.

Plenty of hits when I did a Google search.

This happened a while back to me on my XP back. I did a System Restore. Think it happened while doing some kind of Windows Update to the Media Player. Does that ring any sort of bell? Worked fine for other media players I had but just not Windows Media Player.

Mine was probably caused by an update. I looked around and I haven't found a free fix. I've downloaded multiple "fixes" but nothing actually worked
