If your operating system is okay,(check device manager to ensure that all your devices are installed properly too, if your video device is running on a basic windows driver then windvd might not work, you must have rhe specific one,) make sure Microsoft directX is installed..
It might be that your dvd software is incompatible with the hardware in which case try downloading powerdvd from www.oldversion.com, it costs nothing.
It might be that a device necessary to run DVD playback is not enabled, make sure all sound and video devices are enabled

My blu rays will no longer load on my sony vaio computer my AACS key has expired what do i do please


Advanced Access Content System (AACS) is an industry requirement designed to protect Blu-ray Disc® contents. For enhanced security, the AACS Key for your WinDVD® Blu-ray player requires updating every 18 months. You can try doing the update by going to Corel's customer help web page:

The dvd is not working, cannot find the driver


Driver is not needed--Windows will automatically see it.

If, by not working you mean you can't play DVD's, they normally need a program like WinDVD or another player. However, they will play using Media Player in Win 7

Help with region free


It is not the drive itself but the software what makes the "region free" job. I may suggest you to download an OpenSource program named MPlayer. While it does not have the bell and whistles of PowerDVD or WinDVD, it does a great job at playing many audio/video formats.

I am a novice with laptops anyway i have a toshiba tecra just put a dvd in and a caption said, cant play this dvd as you have no dvd decoder. Is this something i have to buy or download?


Yes, You will need to purchase a software DVD Player such as the likes of Cyberlink Power DVD or Intervideo WinDVD,

However, Cyberlink and Intervideo sell Windows Media Player DVD Playback codec packages for $14.95 which will allow you to directly play DVD Movies on your PC.

This is not free since there are licensing involved in many decoder codecs.

I have Intervideo WinDVD 5 on my computer. When I try to play a DVD with it, the video is fine in the smaller window, but goes black when I go to full screen. The audio is fine.


Could be your video card can't support the full screen. I reckon you have an old PC. The latest version of WINDVD is 9.

My computer wont let me watch movies now. it keeps saying something about my dvd decoder wasnt installed.


if you bought the computer new or the DVD drive new , you whould have got a CD with it , most probably with something like WinDVD or something , if you have the specific CD with DVD software on it install it , as it will enable you to watch DVD's using Windows media player etc..

if you bought the computer second hand etc.. and or cant find the cd's a free solution is to download VLC media player (Download here) the only disadvantage about using this free solution is that you will have to play the DVD's through VLC you wont be able to use windows media player etc. to play DVD's as VLC does not require decoder software to play DVD's

otherwise you can purchase software such as WinDVD and this will enable you to play using your media player of choice.

Thanks!
