It come up with an error message saying "decoder is not available". Not sure what is missing in my laptop.

Please don't get a DVD camcorder. We feel sorry for you making that mistake.

To answer your question, the best thing you can do is search online for the "decoder" your computer is missing. Most likely it is a 'MPEG2 decoder'.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
