Question about Computers & Internet

I have an imac osx and as of late when I insert a dvd, it won't be played, read or even acknowledged - it just comes back out of the slot after making some pretty grueling sounds . . .

    I've tried that, even trashed my dvd player and installed anew. Still, dvd upon insertion into drive doesn't even show up on desktop, finder or anywhere else. It simple ejects itself after about a minute. I did a hardware test on my computer and all seems fine. What do you suppose could be the problemm and what might I try next?

    Thank you for giving this truly fustrating problem your time and consideration. I hope to hear from you soon. Meanwhile, Godspeed, you & yours & HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

DVD's won't play in my TSST corp CDDVDW SH-224BB. Diablo played fine in it, but no DVD's.


Try this...
Go to device manager right click on and un-install the DVD drive. Then restart the computer and wait for the "Found New Hardware" balloon message to disappear. That reloads the drivers. Then put in a dvd and see if it works.
Also, you may have inadvertently turned off autoplay. If so, turn it back on. See here...

"Quality" of the CD's has a lot to do with it. The lower the quality, the more likely better CD burners won't acknowledge them.

What fix to apply to HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GWA4164B in Dell Dimension E310 so it can read/play a dvd movie?


Try the following:

1. Go to the Dell.com support site and be sure you have the latest updates for your computer's operating system and the DVD drive, especially the DVD drive's drivers BIOS.

2. Make sure you have the software to play the movie, like Sonic, Windows Media Player, Power DVD, Quicktime, etc. and be sure they are the latest versions.

3. Depending on the movie format, not all DVD drives will play all DVDs. The most common discs are DVD-R and DVD+R and file types like *.avi, *.mpeg, *.mp4, *.mov and then commercial formats. Also try the movie in another machine or DVD player and see what happens.

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?


CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

HL-DT-ST DVD RAM GSA-T20N ATA Device error code 10, Laptop cant read DVD and doesn't acknowledge that there is a disc in the computer, and it even says that the driver is up to date and functional. HELP?


hi,

Error Code 10. The device is not installed, The Device Has A fault, The devices driver is not installed correctly.

Possible Solutions:- Uninstall the device, and re-install it using the device manager, Or Add new Hardware wizard, After uninstalling.
Does the drive read a CD ? this would eliminate the Cd reading. As the dvd uses a different or power increased laser beam. Do you have a good program installed for reading DVDs ( Power DVD Or Similar )

DVD movies not playing but CD-ROM games and CD's do?


With the disk inserted, 1) double-click on MyComputer, 2) right-click on the DVD, and select Auto Play from the resulting menu; a window will appear, 3) click on your favorite DVD playing software and 4) check the little box below to do the same every time you insert a movie (as it used to be).
