How to play a DVD on Toshiba Satellite Pro C850


If you know the DVD and the DVD drive is in proper working order, it could mean that the software you are running just may have some problems. Try downloading a copy of VLC (VideoLan Client) this application is free and open source (and no it's not something I created and am just trying to get people to use...it's just something that works great, and completely free) VLC can play almost any video file or DVD that it encounters. If VLC can't play it, I would think it's likely there may be something with your disk or your DVD drive.

IN DVD DRIVE CD PLAYS BUT DVD CAN NOT PLAY


hi
I think in detail you problem is that you play DVD movies, write DVDs, write CD etc. overall it was working fine. All on a sudden you could not plat DVD movies anymore. At the beginning you thought your DvD burner needs to be changed but you tried audio CD and mp3 just to check and they worked fine, then you tried data DVD, that worked perfectly okay as well. than you think there was certain that it's a software problem. So you tried all sort of things that you possibly could. you removed the hardware and added it back on. It didn't work. you uninstalled DVD codec and reinstall it. Still didn't work. you installed one software called regcure, still didn't work. you tried windows troubleshooter, didn't get much help.

if you done all these thing......than i think..

The DVD drive still could be bad. I would try to borrow an external DVD drive before you try anything else. If the system picks up the drive and plays though your software, then most likely the drive is bad. I had this happen with a desktop in reverse, (played DVD, not CD). I think there are 2 different lasers in a combo drive. It's definitely worth a shot. Is there anything in media player waiting to be written? Unless you have a third party codec properly installed in Windows Media Player, it will pretty much act the way you describe.

hopes that helpful to you

I got a lap dell that dont play should how can i get that installed for free striaght to my laptop


Don't play what? Games? Movies? If you mean movies, you can try Artisan DVD player. This will only play DVD movies if your laptop has a DVD-rom. If you only have a cd-rom, no software will help you play a DVD movie. You can get the software free here:

Pioneer dvd r/rw wont play a dvd


If your computer recognizes a disc in the drive and operates normally, Id assume you would need a DVD player or codec to be able to actually watch the DVD. PowerDVD rings a bell.
Have you tired that? I know Windows Media Player by default wont let you watch a movie without first downloading a codec.

Dvd player not working on desktop computer


If the problem is that it just wont play or recognize DVD movie but recognizes CD then you may need to download a DVD decoder.

Windows Media Player ( depends on the version) doesn't come with DVD decoders so you may have to download it OR :

You can download WinDVD here.

Burning movies


What do you mean wont work? Make sure your CD drive is a CD/DVD writer. On the Nero, it has an option to create a movie disc, something like that. Use that option.

My computer wont let me watch movies now. it keeps saying something about my dvd decoder wasnt installed.


if you bought the computer new or the DVD drive new , you whould have got a CD with it , most probably with something like WinDVD or something , if you have the specific CD with DVD software on it install it , as it will enable you to watch DVD's using Windows media player etc..

if you bought the computer second hand etc.. and or cant find the cd's a free solution is to download VLC media player (Download here) the only disadvantage about using this free solution is that you will have to play the DVD's through VLC you wont be able to use windows media player etc. to play DVD's as VLC does not require decoder software to play DVD's

otherwise you can purchase software such as WinDVD and this will enable you to play using your media player of choice.

Thanks!
