My dell latitude D610 will not play dvds


First, and this is probably something you've already verified but I just want to ensure its covered, ensure that your drive is marked as a DVD drive and not just a CD drive. I see on the Dell hardware specs only a small percentage of the D610's came with CD-rom drives but I'd check that first.
Next, you need a program and a decoder for DVD video disks. If you don't have the original program provided by Dell (usually on a CD and usually called WinDVD for the time period that the D610's were sold prominently) I would download a program called VLC. It's a free program that plays a WIDE array of video files and can easy play dvd's (and provide the decoder as well!). It is available here: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
Hope this helps!

try to insert any disk on your laptop and check if your dvd drive can read any dvd/cd

if it can but you just cant read any DVD movies then theres a problem with the codec

Cant get DVD's to play


Try cleaning off the laser of the dvd drive with a damp q-tip. This will make sure there is no specs of dust or dirt on the laser.

If it sill plays cd's but not dvd's then that means the laser is bad cause it takes more power from the laser to read dvds cause there is more information that needs to be verfied.

So if the laser is bad that means the drive you bought was defective. Try a bunch of different dvds to be sure you don't have any that are bad.

If your getting it with any dvd your putting in there then you know you need to get another drive.

I installed XP Pro, and now I cannot use my DVD drive to play DVDs


Windows XP doesn't come with the proper codecs to play DVD movies by default. You either need to buy a program with the codecs, or pay Microsoft for them. What I've found works best is to download the trial of WinDVD. It installs the needed codecs and you don't even need to use the program. So after you install it just use whatever program you originally wanted to use and you should be set.

(The older versions od WinDVD could be uninstalled while leaving the codecs behind, but the new version seems to remove them after uninstalling, so you'll want to leave it on the computer)

Hope that helps :)

When I play a dvd on my laptop, there is only sound and no picture


First: is your cd drive an actual DVD drive? and which media player are you using? you may need the "codecs" installed for playing dvds. if you download the Divx Player, this may fix your problem.
