Gateway laptop won't play media or detect usb/cameras/dvds

Hi,
my laptop recently stopped playing music and videos that are on my computer(this does not affect online videos such as youtube videos, only content on my computer), and will not detect dvd's, my camera, flash drives or other external devices. Any ideas what the problem could be and if there is anything I could try that may fix this? Thanks!

Click on Start>Right-Click My Computer>Click on Properties>Click on Hardware Tab>Device Manager. You will see a list of all of your hardware devices. Look for DVD/CD controller and click on the "+" sign to show the make and model of your DVD adapter. Right click on it and click on Troubleshooting. While you are there click on "Update Drivers" also, see if there is a new driver. Try doing the same thing for Video and Sound. Let me know how it turns out.

When you connect the MP3 player to your computer with the supplied USB cable then computer detects the player as an external storage device or a Removable disk, you can then view the folder on your MP3 player. Open the music folder and create a new folder on the player exactly the same way you create a folder on your computer's hard drive. To organise your music, make a folder name with the name of the music album and place the album's MP3 files in this folder, then copy the mp3 files from the computer into this folder.
You will then be able to select the music you want to play by the music album folder.
To delete a file from your MP3 player, connect the supplied USB cable to your player and then plug it into the USB port of your computer.
The computer will detect your player then click on this device to view the files, you can then click on the music file to highlight the file and then press the Del key to delete the file off your MP3 player.
Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine the type of video file format it uses.
Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI and WMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX.
If your player cannot play a video then it is an incompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to a format that your MP3 player uses. After video conversion then copy the video files to your MP3 player using the USB cable from your computer.

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.
You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable.
For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track.

How to show my music folder in laptop which is in sandisk 2GB memory card ?


Your music folder should be under your user folder. If you have music on your SD card, plug it into the computer and open "Computer". The laptop should detect the card and give it a drive letter. Open it and play the music directly from the card or copy it to your "My Music" folder and play from any media program. If this doesn't answer your question please elaborate on the issue.

My gateway laptop's dvd/cd drive stopped working, all of a sudden, but it plays music cds, it is just the DVDs that don't play them or even explore... what could it be the problem? how do i solve it? it...


Are you sure yours is a DVD player? It could only be a CD-CD writer, which will NOT play DVDs.
Open your control panel ->system->hardware->device manager and click on the DVD/CD-ROM drives icon. The listed devices will tell you if you really have a dvd player or not. If you do really have a dvd player, try a different dvd
