    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

Tempremental playing dvds


In response to your jvc-a75r DVD player, sometimes the solution might be less complex than it may appear. Had the same problem with my Samsung s321,the machine refused to read DVD's but would play CD's no problem. Simply opened up the cover(usually)4-6 small screws, and found my dog's hair inside of the player covering the laser eye.Electrostatic ionization attracts dust,etc. into the player remarkably well sometimes. Carefully used a cotton swap to remove debri. PLayerworked fine afterwards ...Good luck!

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.
