i have an acer laptop that has no internal dvd drive. i tried to watch a netflix movie and others with an external dvd drive. nothing happens. whan i look at the files on the dvd, the laptop finds no files to run the dvd. i tried the same dvd on my other laptop with an internal dvd drive and the movie works fine. the lacer does read software to be loaded to the internal hd just fine.

Do you have software to play DVDs on the Acer. I think DVD decryption is built into windows media player, but I haven't used it in a while. Does the external drive require two USB ports to power the drive?
