    Windows XP SP3
    IE 7
    I am having similiar problem. Cdrom play but not DVD rom. I have read about
    the decoders, but I am trying to reinstall originally installed one. How can
    I find it to do so?? Also, I cannot afford a new decoder even though they
    are not that expensive. I used the XP installation Cd and saw Cdrom and
    DVDrom. CAn I use this to reinstall the original decoder? If not, where can I
    find it.

    Thanking you in Advance for your help and being there.
