Question about Dell DVD-rom DVD Drive

1 Answer

I have a Dell Inspiron 600m laptop that won't play any DVDs. A message pops up telling me to make sure the DVD software is installed in my computer. The laptop came with the DVD player installed and a couple reboot cds with programs that are supposed to be on my computer already. Does anyone have any tips? (Dell support is charging $50 to help w/ this problem -- those ********!)

I have a dell inspiron 6400 and my dvds wont play sound


Could be a couple of things, check your sound devices in the control panel, make sure your disk drive is included and volume at a good level.

If its all set properly, it could be your media player needs its codecs updating. Or you could go to filehippo.com, download and install VLC media player. Its a brilliant programme and a lot less cumbersome than the windows version.

Can't get new DVD RW to work


Go to the Manufacturer's site of the burner and look for firmware, download and install -and to make sure it (the burner) is compatible with you operating system vista or XP
You should have received a disc with the burner ...run it, even if you are going to use some other burner program.
If you can't find what you need, write again with the name and model of burner and the operating system you are using.
Hope this helps... Please leave rating...

Playing DVDs on Laptop through the TV


Here's what's happening... software companies like CyberLink subscribe to the Macrovision requirements for playing DVDs and protecting copyrighted materials.

Macrovision has approved numerous video cards for what they call "TV Out" which allows the movie to be displayed on your TV.

Unfortunately, your Dell Inspiron does not have a Macrovision approved and supported video card in it, so it gives instructions to the computer to disable TV Out and not allow it to play anywhere besides the computer.
