    It would be very helpful if you could post the exact model of your laptop. I think it's a 3 character code. the IBM site lists dozens of models under the Think Pad T30 2366. It would also help knowing what OS you are running:)

Yes, indeed. Apparently, It seems that you didn't install any driver for your on-board video controller.

Here's the link to download the driver,

and you might need the chipsets driver as well,

I cant see the video on my computer


You need to install DVD software to view DVDs on your computer, and play them with a DVD player instead of a CDrom.
Depending on the age and operating system of your computer, you may or may not have this capability built in. Please see this article.and for playing DVDs with Windows Media Player click here
You can check the status of devices installed in your computer by going to control panel>system> hardware>device manager and open the plus sign next to DVD/CD ROM drives. If one of the drives listed has DVD written next to it then you have the capability to play them, but not the right software installed,
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

No audio file will play on WMP, no dvd or audio disk will play...


Windows Media Player cannot play several files in the playlist. This might be caused by one or more problems.
To find information about the specific problems, click the Now Playing tab, and then click the blue or red icon next to each file in the List pane.
In some cases, you might encounter this error message if there is a problem with your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. For example:
  • Your sound device requires an updated driver. To determine if an updated driver is available, see Windows Update or see the sound device manufacturer's Web site.
  • Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see Windows Help and Support or refer to your sound device's documentation.
  • You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device, and then try to play the file again

Dvd player problems


When you put the DVD in the player, are you snapping it onto the spindle? You have to do that with notebook PCs, but not with desktops.

Samsung dvd-rom 616E won't play sounds


I decided to check to see which video player programs were already on my computer. I have a Dell, so there were several that came preinstalled.
Did I mention that Windows Update had installed several new fixes recently?
My toolbar no longer worked like it did last week, that was a clue.
2 of my programs were no longer in the programs list, Interplayer and Power DVD were missing.
I went to the Power DVD site and downloaded the latest update.
Now my DVD player works fine.
I don't know why RealPlayer or Media Player didn't work, even with the updates.
I don't care, as long as something works.
I could have tried Winamp too but Power DVD worked and I didn't try anything else after that.
It doesn't have to be a problem with the hardware, but could be the software.

My Acer Aspire 5315 does not play DVD films.


Hi,
to play dvd films, ensure your laptop has a media-player installed. i.e windows media player 9-10-11 et,c. also you could check in My computer/control Panel/system/device manager to see if there any yellow exclamation marks, next to any devices. if there are. you,ll need to re-install drivers for the device.

if this solves your problem, please rate as fixya.

thankyou for using the forum.

Cyberlink DVD Error 80040216 error code


I was having this error for a long time, trying to figure out.
In my search, I had found:
It seems to be an issue with SP3.
someone mentioned they could go in and play the .vob file but that was it..
uninstalling and reinstalling does not work
changing hardware acceleration does not work.
I long since gave up on the search, even later changed my hard drive (yes even on new HD it was giving this error), but my windows media player kept giving me a copyright protection code error, and one of the fixes was to reinstall my video driver. Or install a decoder (seems to mean the only way windows media will play movies is if you have other dvd software installed - this way it can read from it).
So I:
*upgraded my video driver. I have a HP Nc6000 ATI mobility radeon 32mb card.
*also had bought a dvdrw drive so I put that one in
*was told by windows media I had to change my region the dvd player itself was set on region 2
Retried windows media - still again got the copyright code error, decided wth Ill try loading powerdvd again AND IT STARTED
So I dont know which one of the 3 above resolved the issue for PowerDVD, and hopefully it wont come back.
Still working on windows media LOL but I know so many had issues with PowerDVD I wanted to suggest these potential fixes.

How do you put movies dvds and videos on your mix max mp3 player?


I think I've covered this one before... not sure though so here we go...
First of all DVD's are copyrighted and digitally encoded so that they can't be copied to your computer or other devices. Windows Media Player can't rip them because of this encoding. Not only that if you were somehow able to copy it to the player the Mix Max can't play DVD formatted videos, it can only play WMV (Windows Media Video) formatted videos that are properly "encoded" for play on the Mix Max.
Check out the link below for how to properly encode your videos for play on the Mix Max.
http://digiblue.com/customer-service/faqs/disney/mixmax/index.html
It has a PDF download with instructions on how to properly encode videos so that they will play on the Mix Max.
