Hi all
I just installed win XP on an IBM T-20 thinkpad my wife wants to use as a portable DVD player. If I try to play a movie I get a messge that I may need to decrease the resolution. I set it as low as possible but it still won't play? I'm using Nero 6 and Media player, Neither works? The comp has 384MB physical memory Can anyone help???
Thanx...Mark

That's a rather "odd" error message, but setting it to the lowest resolution probably won't work either. Can you post what resolution you had it set to originally? You may want to fool around with it (try different values and see if they work or not).

Does the laptop acctually have a DVD drive installed in it. If it does then you might want to try installing some DVD playing software rather then just using your standard media player. The other option is downloading and installing a codec pack called combined comunity codec pack and seeing if it will work then.

I agree with lasher511....you might want to try downloading some more players...like RealPlayer...because the problem may be that you don't have the right file for WMP or Nero 6.
