    DVD Playing Software not working

    Working on some new Fujitsu Siemens PC's I'm being asked by teachers to put software on which will allow them to run DVD's from the DVD drives. The drives run software OK but will not replay say a DVD film. I have tried both AVS DVD Player and VLC Free but neither fix the problem. I'm wondering if these players require Internet access to run and if there is a filter preventing this access. Anyone else come across this problem and if so how did you resolve it please.

    I have had this happen a lot lately. I cured it by installing the Klite codec pack.
