I just bought a brand new Toshiba Satellite P75-A7200. It won't play DVD's and keeps saying wrong area code...I live in Australia, bought the PC in Australia and am trying to play Australian DVD's but


hi, I think this may help. what you need to do first of all is change the default player for DVD's from Toshiba Video Player to Windows Media Player, cant remember off hand how to do that but should be in manual, but try this. go to windows control panel, select 'Default Programs' and click on it, then select 1st option 'Set Your Default Programs' a list of all programs will come up, look for Windows Media Player and click on it, then choose one of the options on the right. The top one sets as default, the bottom one allows you to set file types to open with the program. this should work as it is telling your system to launch that program for DVD's etc, If you cant find your control panel, simply click Start and type it in the little box that appears just above it.
hope this helps

How do i get my dell dimension 3100 to play dvd's and dvd-r's sonic cineplayer doesn't want to do anything for me


Try the Open Source VLC player software (from videolan)

If still no luck, chances are it's your DVD drive (you do know you only get 3 changes of 'Region Code' before it locks up ?)

Computer does not want to play a video. is asking for a DVD decoder.


Certain software that plays media require a DVD decoder that you can purchase. You can also go to www.snapfiles.com, look at the freeware tab and you may be able to find a DVD player program that will play your DVD.

For all Windows (XP, Vista, 7):
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

Click the FixIt button, when prompted select RUN.
When the tool is done, reboot.

If the problem is with Windows, this will solve it for sure. Otherwise your drive may be dead or the power disconnected.

I have a DVD RW but cannot play back DVD/CD


If there was a CD-ROM of software provided with your hardware, install the "DVD-player" software that is on that CD.

Or, see: http://www.roxio.com/enu/products/cineplayer/decoder/overview.html

for a commercial add-on to Windows Media Player, that will decode the DVD, and play it.

Dvd -rom cannot detect video


Does you DVD player read DVD+RW? If you do and still doesn't work, make sure you have an mpeg-2 decoder loaded up in your computer.

Toshiba dvd rom sd r6012 isn't reading the DVDs


Try some factory CD and DVDs and just try to get them to open in Windows (not play in a media player program). If you get errors on every disc you try, it may be your CD/DVD hardware packing in.

If it reads some CDs or DVDs and not others, particularly media discs, you may be having software driver problems, otherwise, it is likely hardware.

Try inserting the disc and spinning it up while resting the laptop on its side, or even upside down. If it reads sideways or upside down, the CD/DVD reader hardware has gone and cannot probably be prepared (this is a symptom of physical controller failure and is ot fixable by normal means).

Good luck...
