    My friend just bought a new netbook computer with the Windows 7 Starter OS. When we tried to play a DVD with Dolby sound, no sound was produced. Doing a little research, it appears that the problem is that Starter doesn't have the Windows Media Center component which would provide the codecs for Dolby sound. I found this Microsoft article that contains a download that apparently would solve the problem - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968211.

    I was wondering if there is any simpler solution to the missing Dolby codec problem other than a multi-hundred megabyte download and install.

    Thank you in advance for any help.
