You should install the trial version of the NERO software and us it. It will work well

    When you get the message as you need a decoder, that means it is taking about the program which you can use for decoding/playing/ reading the dvd.

    As you have mentioned as it was working fine earlier. This indicates that the software you have on the computer is not working fine.

    If the issue is only with playing cd/dvd that i would suggest you to install the VLC Media Player from here

    If you have issues burning the disks than either use the default windows utility to burn the disk or download the Nero Trial from here

My dell latitude D820 lap top just stopped decodeing dvds


To change the Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change.
If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region and Passkey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: -

Is it the CD/DVDs you are using? I have seen that many DVD burners that do record, will not play on Laptops/PC or other players. See the recommended DVDs the manufact. requires and go form there.

My samsung dvd player will not play dvds, but it


Are you trying to playing recordable DVDs (DVD+R or DVD-R) ? if so, try playing original DVDs (the type you rent or buy) those are pressed DVDs - if it works, then your player does not support DVD-R or DVD+R - If you are using a computer burner that supports bitsetting you can change the booktype of a DVD+R to DVD-ROM to fool your player.

If however your player cannot play either DVD-R, DVD+R nor original DVDs and only plays CDs, then your dvd laser diode is finished - there is one for CD and one for DVD, this is rare but happens, there is nothing you can do, any repairs would be very expensive - you are better off getting a new DVD player they are very inexpensive now and any repairs will cost you multiple times a new DVD player.

Dvd not playing dvds


Basic Information:

i) try to choose  right burner for eg: Nero CD/DVD Burner

ii) try to choose the right format,

     for eg: MP3/MP4/ Audio Songs will come under Audio format
               in such case select "Audio CD/DVD format" in Nero CD/DVD Burner


     for eg: .DAT/MPEG/MP4/Video will come under Video format

                in such case select "Video CD/DVD format" in Nero CD/DVD Burner


     for eg: "DATA CD format" is only storing some data on CD/DVD iresspective whether it is                            Videofile or Audio file, 

                these "DATA CD formated" CD/DVD when played in DVD Player will play only Audio files 
                but no Video Files

Hi,
are you trying to play DVDs from a different region ?
PC DVD Drives, are region set to the computer, if you have a region 1 dvd drive, trying to play region 2 dvds et,c. it won,t let you. theres a couple of ways around this. go to Afterdawn ( on the web ) and download a region free dvd device.
Solution 2. try to obtain any updates or re-install windows media player. suggest player version 9 or above.

Mike @ compurepair.

p.s finally is to check that your drive, indeed supports DVD Or certain types of dvd media. i.e DVD+ Or DVD- some only support One type.
