Certain DVD's won't play on my Toshiba satellite notebook

Finding this really quite frustrating, have had the computer for just over a year now and never had this problem before but lately certain DVD's wont play. The movies work in other machines, but don't show up at all on this one! They are all studio released movies and I just don't get how some work whilst others won't. Any help anyone can give me is greatly appreciated.

Perhaps the DVDs are region coded and may not play on the computer..please check if they are of different regions(can be found of the back cover of the dvd box usually)

Dvd player won't play disc


The DVD read head may need to be cleaned. Sometimes perfectly OK drives also fail to read certain discs. If the problem is persistent, i.e. the notebook won't read any discs, then clean the head (with a head cleaner) and try again. If it starts working, fine.. If not, then you may have to replace the DVD drive. If the problem is only related to playing one particular DVD, then its the DVD that is faulty.
Hope this helps.

I have installed Windows7 and I have lost my built in web cam and all built in Toshiba programs I recovered Tempro but I cant seem to be able to recover The Web-Cam and the Toshiba DVD Player


it's really frustrating when that happens. you can go here and download corresponding drivers for your computer. select windows 7 (32 or 64 bit?) then download all the drivers you need. you can also find your Toshiba DVD player under DVD category. hope it helps.
