How do i get my laptop to play dvd


This should be just as simple as inserting the DVD. A menu should pop up prompting you with the buttons of a DVD player. This of course is only if you computer has the appropriate software and drive for this to occur. If it is set up for this and it is not playing it could be that you are putting in a BluRay and not a regular DVD. Not all can play both.

DVD will not eject on my toshiba laptop



Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer

if there is a small hole on the panel of your dvd drive push a staightened paper clip inside until you feel it press down this will open up the drive

hope this helps

My Dvd rom can't detect any CD or DVD


Hello,
how long have you been using this player? I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.
To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.
Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.
If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.
To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.
Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.
Regards.

Hi my dvd drive does not work properly. sometimes it can detect a CD or DVD but many times it can not. for example if it can not detect a cd when I eject and insert it again or after several times it...


Recognising a CD /DVD by DVD drive is related to the lense condition.

You try to clean the lense with cleaner CD which is available in the market.

If the problem still not solve then you change the drive
