Hello Suzanne,

You may be required to go into the registry to fix this issue, so if you are not too comfortable going into the registry, you might want to get help (but I have written the instructions you can follow)

Check the Device Manager.

Start > Control Panel > Double Click the System icon > Click the Hardware Tab at the top of the box that opens > Click the Device Manager Button.

Click the [+] sign beside the category DVD/CD-ROM Drives

After clicking the [+] sign and the DVD/CD-ROMS Devices category opens up, is there a DVD Drive listed? If there is, when you right-click the DVD Drive and choose properties, does it give any error code, like Error code 39 in the grey box that appears when you choose properties?

Normally the DVD drives use the default Windows drivers. Try right clicking the DVD Drive under the DVD/CD-ROM Drives category in Device Manager and choose uninstall. Then reboot the computer and Windows will find the device and re-install drivers automatically.

If you are still getting the error or the Drives do not show up in My Computer ("poste de travail"), it may be an update or some other program that added data to the DVD's driver data in the registry. Try this:

1) Close all open programs

2) Click on Start, Run, and type "regedit" (without the quotations) and press Enter. Back up (File > Export) the registry before you make any changes)

3) Click on the plus signs [+] next to the following folders


  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
  • SYSTEM
  • CurrentControlSet
  • Control
  • Class
  • Left Click and Highlight: {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} **Make sure you choose this exact key**
4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand side panel:


  • UpperFilters
  • LowerFilters
  • UpperFilters.bak
  • LowerFilters.bak
5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed on the right hand side, right-click on them and choose Delete

6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor


7) Reboot your computer


8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.


This should fix the problem, let me know if it worked for you,

RyMS

Change language fr french to english!


Hi There,
The method used depends on the version of Windows you are running.

You can right click on the task bar (where the running programs are shown along with the start button) and choose Toolbars... ' Language Bar. The language bar will now be shown, and you can click this, choose settings ' Add... and choose English.

If the language bar option is not available, and you are running Windows XP, open control panel and choose "Options régionales et linguistiques". From here, choose the second tab and down at the bottom there is an option to change to English. It will ask you to logout (it may be in French) so click OK and when you log back in you should be set to English.
If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, open control panel and choose "Options régionales et linguistiques". From here, choose the third tab and there is a button to install/uninstall languages.
Please post back if you have more questions.

I accidently changed the language on my 205 series. I think its French but am not sure. How do I get it back to English?


  • On the page that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP press TOOLS (The spanner symbol) in the bottom right corner
  • Press SETTINGS (the spanner symbol) or LOCALE (the blue symbol) on models that don't have a settings icon
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
This brings you to a screen with 3 items on it. VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
If it's in French you won't know which is which but it will show the language beside the TEXT LANGUAGE icon. Francais is the French word for French. To change the voice language press VOICE and select an English speaking name. To change the text language press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English or American English if you're in the USA.

This should solve your problem.

Second one: Tap on the screen. Tap on change preferences: Tap on the arrow once (You should be on: Preferences 2 of 6 by now. Tap on change voice. Select a voice which has English US or UK after the name (example: Lori, English US). You can also Select a voice, that has English US or UK, computer ( example: Simon, English UK, Computer), if you would like spoken street names, (provided your unit is capable of saying street names). Test and select. Go through voice preferences. Tap Done.
Note: although all units are capable of speaking instructions only some units are capable of speaking street names and the *computer* part is important for that feature to work.

My dvd eill not speak in english


Your problem is not the DVD player, most DVD's come in multi-language format and your disk is set to either French or Spanish. Correct the setup when the DVd begins.
