    The most likely problem is that software you are trying to play it with and/or not having the proper codecs installed. What program are you using to play?

To remove the player turn your laptop upside down and locate a padlock symbol embossed on the plastic. Remove the screw next to it and use a pointed object to press down on the void created by the removal of the screw. Now eject your loading tray and pull out. The whole drive itself should follow once the tray has been fully extended or....
To replace the player I purchased a external optical drive from amazon and it cost 20 pounds for a basic CD reader otherwise a 40 pounds one can also be purchased with higher specs www.amazon.co.uk/Inspiron-Portable-External-Optical-Drive
To reboot my computer i had to remove the inbuilt player in order for the computer to pick up my external cd player.
i have spent many hours on this particular dell inspiron 2200laptop so feel free to ask

You might need to download a driver. When I reformatted my harddrive I had to do this. No software that came with my comp helped it. Try looking on the Dell Website for free downloads for the driver you need.

The videos play but stop every 2 seconds then play again. I have no problem loading or doing anything else on my computer but watching videos.


Hi,
Before we can give you any troubleshooting steps wanted to confirm
1. Are you playing online videos or from cds or DVDs?
2. When did the problem start ?

Thanks

Dvds won't play properly and sound isn't right


Sounds like you may have an issue with it reading discs. It can probably play CDs fine because it's fast enough to buffer ahead of it since an audio CD isn't very much data compared to a DVD. Try cleaning the laser lens with a dry paper towel first (not moist or a dusty kleenex). If that doesn't seem to clean it, or you have visible smears or smudges on it, you may want to try a very very moist (barely the next level above dry) paper towel, then try it immediately.

If that doesn't solve the problem, try different DVD software (VLC Media Player, perhaps) or try a different DVD if you haven't already.

Cannot seem to play dvds or cds on dell inspiron 2200


There are three possible reasons for this, the first one is that, your CD/DVD lens might have become weak, and therefore might need to be changed, or if its just dirty, you might just need a lens cleaner.
The second reason is that, it might be that the CD you are trying to read is bad, dirty, or not properly burnt...in this case, you might need to clean the surface of the CD properly then re-insert it.
The third reason is that, your CD/DVD Drive might be having a conflict within the OS. What I would suggest in this case is that, Power up your system, then when the system boots, just right click on my computer, then properties, then select the hardwares tab, then click on device manager.
When you get to device manager page, try and locate DVD/CDrom Drives, then click on it, if your drive is there, then just right-click on it, and select uninstall, and after this, on that same page, click on 'Actions', and select "Scan for hardware changes". But if its not there. Just click on the "Actions, and Then select "Scan for hardware changes".
This should automatically place your CD/DVD drive back inside your My Computer page. After this, try the CD or DVD again.
Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!

DVD ROM


Have you tried using a lense cleaner disk?

Can you hear the disk spinning at all?

Is the problem with both cd and dvds?

What kid of disk are you trying to play? Some dvd roms will not read dvdrw disks.

Problem with disc drive


You didn?t mention the type of disk (something you burned or bought) or the physical condition of the disks (brand new, some scratches or lots) but if they?re commercial CDs or DVDs and you can play them in another laptop or player you should be able to play them in your laptop consistently. About the only thing I would recommend doing to a new laptop drive still in warranty would be to clean the drive using a commercial CD cleaning disk. If you still have trouble reading commercial CDs that play in other devices I would contact the manufacturer?s technical support for repair.
