    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.

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.

Freezes when trying to play DVD's


Hello,

Try to remove all your startup and then put the dvd inside then do not auto play it, try to play it manually by going to my computer - right click the dvd/cd drive - then click open - then locate the video file which is the most capacity that has. then play that one. Hope it help
