    Dear Sir,


    I am having a sony Vaio VGN FE31M model laptop, but from past 2 days i am not seeing the DVD - RAM icon to play DVD's, but when i go to the device manager and check the status on the disk drive, it says that " this device is working properly" but i still dont understand why the drive doesnt show up in my computer, this thing had happened before, but when i restarted the system i was able to see the Drive, but this time i have restarted the system several time, but it is not making any difference, any ideas as to what can be done to fix this.



    Please help me out with this issue, thanking you in advance.

Bought a Targus slimline usb dvd player to attack to my acer netbook. It will not play any dvd's. It keeps saying my disks may be corrupt. What do I do?


There is either a problem with your discs or the targus unit so first:
put in a disc and if it says that it's corrupt then take it out and try to play it in something else that you know works.
Then if it does play, it's the targus unit's fault. If it does not play then your discs are bad.

I can see the movie playing but I cant hear anything. What can I do? When I click on my dvd drive from the "My Computer" folder, it has an audio and video folder that comes up. There are various files...


The audio_ts folder doesn't have any files, that is not causing the problem. Does the sound work for other things on the computer? Open the volume mixer by double-clicking the speaker icon in the system tray. Then check that the volume is not muted for the CD/DVD drive, or turned down too far.

I am not able to play my movies recorded dvd but cd is working well, help me,,


Insert a DVD movie.
Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse click on the icon for your CD/DVD drive, and click "Explore".
If the hardware is working correctly, you should see a list of files & folders.

Search online for the free 'VLC' software for playing DVD-movies. Download it, and install it, to "play" your DVD-movie.

It doesnt read any dvd neither software nor video, but can read audio cds, vcds, and mp3s


Put a DVD disk into the drive.
Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse click on the icon for the CD/DVD drive.
Click "Explore".
If a window opens, then your hardware can read the DVD media.
If not, then you need to replace the CD/DVD drive.

Then, you need software, such as the _free_ 'VLC' software,
downloadable from the Internet, to play DVD-videos on your computer.

What do you think is much better to have; PSP, Portable DVD Player or Iphone?


psp get boring dvd players only play videos and music. i phone does everything get the iphone all the way and iphone but it ends up costing so much moeny.. psp - pictures movies music games and wifi web browser
portable dvd player - dvds on the go
iphone - pictures movies music games data apps phone, etc
the dvd player will be the cheapest, one time fee, then after that you just need dvds, the psp will be good for more than one thing, making it superior to the dvd player, and then theres iphone. well, with a monthly fee, it may not be what your looking for. but if you need a phone its the best..
