Try a program called PowerDVD. Or look for a free DVD player program. Windows Media Player has problems playing DVDs sometimes (not to mention a host of other problems) so I always recommend another program for DVD viewing.

After formatting my dell vostro 1510 DVD drive will not read or play DVD discs


If you reinstalled Windows from the Dell-provided "System Restore" CD/DVD disks, you should be able to play DVD disks.

If you reinstalled Windows from some "other" Windows disks, you should be able to view the files/folders on any DVD-disk, but you will be lacking the software to properly "decode" those files, and to "play" the content.

Plays cds but not dvd


You need an MPEG-2 Decoder, it's a software program that will allow you to play DVDs, download VLC media player from www.videolan.org (free), It is kind of like windows media player but will allow you to play DVDs

I can see the movie playing but I cant hear anything. What can I do? When I click on my dvd drive from the "My Computer" folder, it has an audio and video folder that comes up. There are various files...


The audio_ts folder doesn't have any files, that is not causing the problem. Does the sound work for other things on the computer? Open the volume mixer by double-clicking the speaker icon in the system tray. Then check that the volume is not muted for the CD/DVD drive, or turned down too far.

Im using window's media player it doesn't want to play my movies what can i do


Sometime Windows media player does not play the different audio video formats. So for this we can use other player which are the alternate to windows media player. And these are easily available on internet and some are even more better than windows media player such as vlc player, klm codec.I personally recommend these two should always be in a our pc. So you can use these player and it will definitely solve your problem. You can download it from www.videolan.org and www.filehippo.com/software/multimedia/ and http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/download-media-player-classic-hc.html

Movie audio 'flutters/warbles'


Might be that cyberlink is the problem or the codec it uses. I would also recommend using VLC, and see if it has issues.
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

I like VLC, it will pretty much play any media file, and I do mean any media file. If window media player can not play a file, VLC should. And the best part, its free.

If its your codec, I prefer SLD Codec.

iTunes can no longer find my CD burner. Using a gatewayM-1631U laptop, with windows 7 x 64 home premium edition. (See additional details below). I use iTunes regularly, and as recently as Xmas 2009 was burning music CDs frequently on my laptop. Yesterday I attempted to burn a CD, and iTunes no longer recognizes the installed CD burner. I have not installed any programs to my computer recently, or made any other changes. Today I began investigating the issue. I have tried (not in order) the following - and have not solved the issue: 1. Going to the registry editor and deleting the lower and upper filters associated with the H_KEY_LOCAL MACHINE/SYSTEM/CURRENT CONTROL SET/CONTROL/CLASS 4DE3695 .... 2. Uninstall and reinstall iTunes (9.0.2.25) 3. Repair iTunes 9.0.2.25 4. Looked for updates for the drivers (can't find any) 5. Downloading Gearsoft products I admit that I have not tried Windows Media Player (because I'm committed to my iTunes - I sync with my ipod all the time and listen to it alot). I also realize I may have made the problem worse by some of my attempted fixes. Here is the information gathered through itunes diagnostics: Microsoft Windows 7 x64 Home Premium Edition (Build 7600) Gateway M-1631U iTunes 9.0.2.25 QuickTime 7.6.5 FairPlay 1.5.23 Apple Application Support 1.1.0 iPod Updater Library 9.0d11 CD Driver 2.2.0.1 CD Driver DLL 2.1.1.1 Apple Mobile Device 2.6.0.32 Apple Mobile Device Driver not found. Bonjour 1.0.6.2 (118.5) iTunes Serial Number 2987488CE609EDAB Current user is not an administrator. The current local date and time is 2010-02-05 07:50:22. iTunes is not running in safe mode. Video Display Information ATI Technologies Inc., ATI Radeon X1200 Series **** External Plug-ins Information **** No external plug-ins installed. iPodService 9.0.2.25 is currently running. iTunesHelper 9.0.2.25 is currently running. Apple Mobile Device service 2.50.39.0 is currently running. **** CD/DVD Drive Tests **** No drivers in LowerFilters. UpperFilters: GEARAspiWDM (2.2.0.1), Failed while scanning for CD / DVD drives, error 2380. Error while opening iTunes CD driver. This could be caused by a corrupted iTunes file or a conflict with other older CD burning applications, either currently installed or previously installed and uninstalled incorrectly. Additionally, the device driver says my DVD/CD unit is: Optiarc DVD RW AD-7563A ATA Device Anything else you need to help me figure this out? Could really use help and advice. Thanks in advance.
