Hi,
Try different DVDs, this is to ensure that the disk your trying to play, isn,t warped-scratched et,c.
Also pc/laptops are usually region set for the players. i.e ntsc ( region 1 ) PAL ( region 2 )
do you get any error codes come up on screen, when trying to launch the dvd ?
Do you have a media or dvd player on the system, such as Cyberlink Power DVD Or Windows media player?
please post back, if none of this works, and i,ll help you through.

Hi,
to play dvd films, ensure your laptop has a media-player installed. i.e windows media player 9-10-11 et,c. also you could check in My computer/control Panel/system/device manager to see if there any yellow exclamation marks, next to any devices. if there are. you,ll need to re-install drivers for the device.

if this solves your problem, please rate as fixya.

thankyou for using the forum.

best option would be getting from acer itself, they should have spareparts for your laptop, or you can bring the drive itself to your local computer shop so that you could compare the dimension and specs..

I cannot figure out how to bring up my dvd player. i like to watch movies, but i dont know how to get it installed. i hope you can help me. i have an acer aspire 5315-2698. thank you very much.


Usually when you insert the DVD you should get an autoplay menu that asks which program you want to use to play the DVD (such media player etc)
Acer usually has a bundled software that allows you to watch DVD movies it could be called WinDVD ,PowerDVD choose that program to play the film.
