Can you run any DVD on your laptop?  If not, my first thought is that you don't have DVD software loaded.  If your laptop indeed has a DVD drive you should have received software with it to play DVDs, such as PowerDVD or WinDVD.

SOURCE: I have a DVD player

I've heard there is a way to do it with a chip.

Some say DVD players can be changed by changing the region in the control panel setting however it typically disables playback unless it is programmed for the right region as listed on the back of the player as well as the owners manual.

The best way to do it is to use a DVD player on your computer. You can go into the properties of the DVD player and change the region that way.

It seems you don't have any codecs... The problem is not in windows media player.
Just install a codec pack like http://www.free-codecs.com/download/codec_pack_all_in_1.htm

Hope to solve your problem.

My media player want play dvd's


Maybe your screen resolution needs to be higher? What type of error message are you getting? Are these dvd's that you were able to play before?

Most computers will have problems playing dvd's that someone made for you on their computer. Try a store purchased dvd and see if it plays.

You can always reinstall windows media player at Microsoft's site below.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/windows-media-player

You can also try the VLC Player. It comes with drivers and codec. I've seen it solve a lot of issues that Media Player could not fix.

Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.

I can't play movies on my IBM 2002 Laptop computer. The message 'can't open dvdsimple://D:' keeps coming up.


Hi there !

If you are playing DVD on DVDROM drive, I believe the DVD you are using is damaged because improper copying or burning it might cause damage to DVD. or it does not burn good at all. Or the DVD you are using from the beginning is damaged.

Another is if the DVD have too much scratches that it is difficult for the DVDROM drive to read it. It i will pop up an error reading the DVD.

If you are using windows media player (Not using DVD or CD), I believe the movie you are playing does not support the codec in the media palyer you are using. Try to download VLC player and it is free to download thru websearch.

I hope it solves your problem
