I bought the MIB DVD at Best Buy the other day, and I went home to put it into the DVD drive on my lap top. Now when I put it in, it tells me that I do not have Macrovision, and that I need to get it. I'm new to DVDs, and I have no idea what to do. Can anybody help me?

Buy a DVD that goes on your TV. I suggest that.

Also get many DVD's. You'll love them. X-Men looks good on a DVD Player.

Only if you have an HD tv, otherwise the image quality of the DVD is ruined by the low res of a standard tv.

Yeah, that's true too, Nute.

Not necessarily. You get a good TV with an S-Video or component video input, you'd be hard pressed to see a major difference, unless you had an HDTV sitting right next to it.

It really doesn't matter what kind of TV your have. It matters that you have a DVD player at least.

That's nice. I don't have a TV DVD player. IT'S ON MY COMPUTER, and I need some help. anybody? please?
How about a DVD starter guide, like what to look for in a disk that is actually compatible?

That's weird. I have no idea why it would say that. Are you using a software decoder, or is there a hardware decoder in there somewhere?

Get Microvision.

Keyan, speak to me as you would a young child, for I know nothing of DVD's . The DVD drive has a chip where you put the CD it looks to me, so does that mean I have a decoder built in?
And I would get macrovision if i could find it online somewhere to download.

I rented a couple DVDs from Blockbuster the other day and they ran fine.

Actually, this could be trouble with some extra thing on the DVD when it autoruns. Try loading it in and starting the program that you use to view the DVD yourself.

Thrawn, try downloading Quicktime Player.

That's what my computer told me to do and it works perfectly.

DVD?! Screw DVD for your computer. I got two DVD players for tv. But that's not the point. The point is DVD's are l33t. Especially Fight Club and Braveheart. SCOTTISH!!!!!!

I think that Gladiator and Braveheart are both the same.

They satisfy my thirst of action and plot.

My favorates are: the 007 series(Goldeneye,Tommarow Never Dies, and The World is Not Enough are my favorates.Live and Let Die was just as good too.), Star Wars, Indiana Jones, The Matrix, some Anime movie that I forgot the name of.It was like Monnoke or something, Gladiator, The Patriot, The Perfect Storm.Crouching Tiger was good too.

I liked The Matrix because of the symbological role the white rabbit played at the beginning.

That and it rocked.

Speaking of uber-human kung-fu flicks, I just saw Crouching Tiger. Wow.

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon was a good movie.

It reminds me of Superman.

The fight sequences were the best part.
I wish it was dubbed though.
