Dvd on cq62-225nr will not play


First make sure your drive will handle DvD's. Click Start/My Computer and see if a DvD drive is listed. If you have a DvD then some drives will not handle bootleg (made by some individual) DvDs. Try a store purchased dvd and see if it reads it ok. Also, there are some formats your software may not be able to handle.

If you are using Windows Media Player as your dvd player it has problems reading some formats. Go to www.google.com and in the search type: "download vlc player" (without the quotes). Download VideoLan from the site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it, it can handle just about any format. It's totally FREE. Oh, and it doesn't take 15 or 20 minutes to install like Media Player. It'll be up and running in less than 3 minutes.

My DVD wont play on my laptop..


Will it play in some other computer?
Will it play in a DVD-player?

Is it just one DVD that will not play,
or will _no_ DVDs play?

What software (Windows Media Player, PowerDVD, VLC, other) are you using as your DVD-player controlling-software?

What error-message(s) do you see?

My brand new dell studio 1737 will only play some cds and will not play dvds


Studio's come with the DVD RW. If that item is not functioning correctly, you have to get the drive replaced. Call Dell to have a tech dispatched to your computer, and that should resolve the issues.

Acer aspire 2930 DVD player only opens some dvds


Try Media player classic under k-lite codec pack. Then open video files on the dvd. If it doesn't help try another codec player. If nothing helps could it be that dvd player is not capable of multilayer dvd reading.

By default, Windows does not include a DVD decoder (which is what you need to watch DVDs).
If you are using WMP10: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/plugins.aspx
If you are using WMP11:
http://savvybytes.com/2006/10/02/playing-dvds-with-windows-media-player-11/

Install the codec and you will be able to watch DVDs!
