DVD/CD play incompaibility

The optical drive on my Panasonic Toughbook CF-Y7BWAYZBE laptop (3 months old now) can read less than 25% of the legally purchased pre-recorded DVDs I try to play on it. Can you please tell me why this is?
By the way, I have DVD Region+CSS Free installed because I buy my DVDs in the USA and Europe (I travel a lot).

Write the publishers - they're using more complex methods of preventing people from legally watching their legally purchased DVDs on anything other than sanctioned standalone players.

How to wipe clean CF-19 hard drive


If the Panasonic Toughbook CF19 has a Hard Disk Drive,
then you should be trying to wipe it by booting from an
external USB Optical (cdrom) drive.
You have to enter the BIOS by pressing the F2 function key,
and set USB CDROM as the first bootable device.
Then save and exit the bios.
The external optical (cdrom) will now boot
with the proper bootable media.
If you have a HIREN bootable CD then one of the
tools will allow you to WIPE and RE-FORMAT the
internal hard disk drive.
Good Luck.

Cf-29 no operating system


You will require the internal Panasonic Toughbook CF29 optical drive (DVD). The cost of such a drive (used) in should be $50 or less.

You will also require a Windows 7 DVD.

You may be able to download an ISO file and burn your own.

Try this Microsoft Website:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows7

You must use the 32-bit version, NOT the 64-bit version.

Please remember to set the DVD as the first boot device in the BIOS of the CF29.

That is it. Good Luck and Best Regards from:

I have a Panasonic Toughbook CF-28 Mk III P3 1Ghz 512Mb Ram , I have installed a brand new DVD rom Drive in the MP Bay it reconises in bios also reads upon first post however, will not boot from any os cd...


Some bios menu allows you to boot from USB. (Some are locked this option by makers.)

Run safety mode and try again to see whether your DVD rom is working.

Best way will be go to device manager; go to properties of DVD rom; go to driver and click roll back driver.

If this is not working (in case), uninstall driver and reinstall it.

Hi I have cf-19 I need to install mapping software that requires a resident cd drive to install. Will any usb cd/dvd drive work?


As long as it is a plug&play drive it should work just fine. It's hard to install a USB CD/DVD Drive that isn't plug&play.

Panasonic Toughbook CF-51 shutting down


Sue, it's not the inverter board. People who don't really know much about laptops will often diagnose them incorrectly, especially computer repair shops. The problem you're experiencing is most likely related to your motherboard. Unfortunately the most expensive part to replace on most laptops.

Your best bet is to probably just have any important files from the laptop extracted by a repair shop and then selling the computer "As-IS" on ebay. Or you could try another local repair shop to take a look at it. I wouldn't pay any money for a diagnostics since it would take most techs about 5-10 minutes to confirm what I just typed.

Toughbook CF-51 Laptop DVD Drive Problem


It could be a software or driver issue. First try updating the drivers for the drive, and try either using different burning software or uninstalling & reloading your current software. I had a cf72 with a DVD/CD combo drive that the DVD reader went out. This could also be the issue, if so you'll need to replace it in order to burn CD's.

The cd drive does not recognize any discs


That is not a DVD drive, it is a CD-ROM drive. It can not play DVDs.
