Playing DVD+R on laptop
« on: January 07, 2008, 07:00:18 AM »

I've a feeling that this is in the wrong section but didn't know which section was appropriate.

My problem is--

I used an Imation DVD+R to record a tv programme- I played the DVD back and the recording was successful.  I then put into into the disc drive of my laptop as I want to make screencaps of the programme. My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 6400- it should be compatible with this type of DVD, i think, because on the disc drive it has logos for CD rewritable ultra speed, DVD+R and DVD R/RW.

However, the following window pops up -
 all the options are related to blank cds etc, not playing the dvd.

Where am I going wrong? Do I need to download something first?

Thanks for your time :)
