Your dvd software is capable of playing the type of dvd movie that you have. download and install vlc player and you should be able to play DVDs through that computer.

My dell laptop inspiron 1525 wont play dvd's, but it will play cd's.. i have windows vista


Two things to check: First, look on the tray edge - does it say DVD and CD, or just CD? If it does not say DVD,it will not play them. The second thing is you may not have software to play a DVD. Usually Windows will use media player, assuming you have a dvd player. You can also open "my computer" and the drive will show up as a DVD or just CD.

Try media player classic a software that can play dvds and cds
why the DVD wont play might be for different reasons... 2 broad category software / hardware 0.I ll assume its a drive that can play cds and dvds 1.software- u must have a problem with the drivers. Drivers tell computer's brain how to connect to each of its organs(parts like monitor keyboard DVD drive etc) if this is missing its like ur brain doesnt know how to move ur right hand...u ll need to reinstall the drivers then... u ll get the drivers from the website for the laptop Hardware 2. next try using a lens cleaner for ur drive it usually is an air can and a disc... try that ... 3. If still the problem hasnt been solved... the trouble maybe with the drive physically which means u d have to replace the DVDdrive...

Cant get DVD's to play


Try cleaning off the laser of the dvd drive with a damp q-tip. This will make sure there is no specs of dust or dirt on the laser.

If it sill plays cd's but not dvd's then that means the laser is bad cause it takes more power from the laser to read dvds cause there is more information that needs to be verfied.

So if the laser is bad that means the drive you bought was defective. Try a bunch of different dvds to be sure you don't have any that are bad.

If your getting it with any dvd your putting in there then you know you need to get another drive.

DVD-ROM drive reads CDs, but not DVDs Dell x-200


It shouldn't be a driver issue. DVD drives are natively supported by XP. What software do you have installed for playing DVD'? Windows Media Player 11 would be excellent, and it's free from Microsoft. PowerDVD and WinDVD are also good, but you have to buy them.

No dvd installed


If it's a DVD movie that you cannot play then you need a special program like powerdvd to run it.
windows media player can also do it :http://en.kioskea.net/faq/sujet-224-playing-dvds-in-windows-media-player

Need a driver


The windows XP drivers should work on windows 2000 due to it being the same OS but different GUI.

For the DVD player, You can try XPcodecpack.com which contains alot of the codecs for decoding audio and video.
