First check that it is indeed a CD/DVD drive.

Also, you didn't say whether it was a video or data DVD. Assuming it's a video DVD, you'll need an mpeg2 decoder. (Something like WinDVD, PowerDVD, or Nero Showtime, or one of the many open source alternatives)

If neither video or data DVD's will work, you may need to update your driver for the drive, on the Toshiba website.

How do I get my dvds to play on computor after finalizing disc.


Hello!
1) Are you sute that the DVD are finalized?

2) For me, it works either on tv and on computer. And if your DVD are readable on TV, it prooves the problem is not from your Toshiba DVR620 machine.

3) Maybe a problem on your computer?
A lack of codecs for your video player software ?
Try this for free: a pack of codecs DIVX, and it comes with a free video player and video converter software : http://www.divx.com/en

4) You can try also the video player VLC, it is free, and it reads almost everything! (It's a lot better than Windows Madia Player...)

5) Maybe the problem is in your hardware DVD player ?
If the autorun does not launch automatically, look at this tutorial :
Why does nothing happen when I insert a disc?

Hoping these cues can help... ;-)

All my DVDs say "invalid" when I try and play. This just started all of a sudden. Was working just fine before.


Always first unplug for a minute and make sure the discs are VERY CLEAN. Sometimes my player/recorders give an error message 2-3 times but eventually are able to load the disc.

CD/DVD Player is not working


Is this a desktop? Or a laptop? If It is a desktop, there is a slight chance that the IDE cable inside has wiggled loose. Or, it may have just gone bad. Do the lights flash when you put the CD in?
