How do I play my on dvd's


Hi, the only way to find out is to put a dvd in if you have the software on the unit it should automatically start up for you. It won't do your pc any harm if you don't have the software just eject the dvd out. You can download free VLC media player from the internet and this package will play your dvd .

Try reinstalling the software for the dvd player or update the drivers. Also make sure your media player is up to date and you have the latest codec package installed.

My CD/DVD drive won't read/play DVDs and it won't write DVDs either. It used to do this fine, but it doesn't anymore. It will still play and write CDs, but not DVDs. I have tried EVERYTHING to...


You probably will need to replace the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) in your laptop. Go to Google and search for "Dell Inspirion 6000 CD/DVD drive" to find a replacement.
To be sure it's the CD/DVD drive that's defective and not your operating system software, you could also try to boot from a boot-able DVD disk.

I put pictures on dvd-r disc but they won't play on my dvd player. it does play on my computer.


Just copying the pictures onto a blank DVD won't work if you're trying to make a disc that will play in your DVD player. It's not formatted correctly for the DVD player to recognize it and play it back. All you've done is create a data disc, which works with the computer only.

To make a DVD that will act like a "normal" disc you will need "authoring software". A good free DVD authoring program is DVDStyler. Among other things, it lets you make slideshow DVDs, which is what I gather you're after.

DVD authoring can be time-consuming and somewhat confusing, but you only need to it once for the disc. This page has information about the authoring process, different authoring applications, types of DVDs and more. There are many other sites and videos as well.

Good luck with your project, and thanks for using Fixya!

New Dell Inspiron, wont play DVD's states no device drivers and ref TSSTcorp DVD 2B RW TS L633B


You need to use the software to play DVD movies. Try using windows media player to start the DVD or if the computer came with DVD playing software then try it. You can also check the Dell site and download the latest driver package and install the drivers. It might be missing the dvd rom driver. When you put in the DVD does it autoplay and ask you what software to use to open the disc? You can also go into the control panel and check the device manager. Check and see if the dvd rom is a problem device and/or try to update driver for the device. Have you tried different dvds? Maybe it is having a problem with just that DVD. Some DVD's will not play in a computer but will play in a DVD player.

Not able to play dvd movies


I had a toshiba laptop that did the same thing.
How I solved it was to install a Free "media player" software that can play DVD's and anything else i give it. It used far less "battery power" than the Windvd ,Powerdvd that came preinstalled with the laptop.
All i did was to install the software and chose Open DVD from the menu. when installing the software you don't have to "assign" the VLC to play your say mp3's if you are happy with some other piece of software. so it can "live" on your laptop without "taking over" other Apps
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

another usefull pice of software are the codecs. as you have already installed a package (and it could be this one) I recomend you to unintall all your codecs and install this one.
I built many digital cinema units for indipendant cinemas so i know a fair bit about codecs and video's
http://www.free-codecs.com/K_lite_codec_pack_download.htm

Get the "full version" and then Install it (before VLC although it dosent matter which order)

When it installs you have to chose to turn off one settig.. Its the Wideos Media player "lite" as this will "take over" your other media players

leave the settings to defult and "turn off" Media player classic, and thats it.. It worked for over 100 cinemas aust wide.

any futher probs with this you only have to ask!!

Prblem playing back DVD


The problem is most likely the DVD player itself not the software. Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Update this if that does not resolve the problem.
