DVD query

I tried to run a dvd that has stuff that can only be accessed via a dvd rom , but get told that I'm missing the software needed to run it. Is it possible to be able pick that part of Vista for free? When I got this laptop a good chunk of it was missing

It might help to know what kind of data you are accessing it and the error that you are getting.
On one of the discs of the imperial edition of Caligula, there is some extra material (ie screenplay) available only via computer. when I put it in the drive I get told that I don't have the software to play DVDs

Just to add, Vista should have Windows Media Player 11 installed and it plays DVD-Video. I don't think it will play an AVCHD-DVD.

Keep up the good work Townsbg!
