It doesnt read any dvd neither software nor video, but can read audio cds, vcds, and mp3s


Put a DVD disk into the drive.
Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse click on the icon for the CD/DVD drive.
Click "Explore".
If a window opens, then your hardware can read the DVD media.
If not, then you need to replace the CD/DVD drive.

Then, you need software, such as the _free_ 'VLC' software,
downloadable from the Internet, to play DVD-videos on your computer.

Media player doesn't work


Hi,

There is a usb cable that would connect both of them together. It can be purchased at a local computer retailer just let them know that you need a cable to connect both your notebook and desktop together to transfer some files. There is also another method using an 10/100 ethernet cable and set up a network to transfer your files.

Disc did not come back out on disc player


Do you mean your disc is stuck in the drive?
If so Look at the drive there should be a tiny pin hole near the eject button, insert a needle (safety pin, sewing, etc.) into the pin hole and push this opens the drive.
You can also try opening my computer and right clicking the DVD drive and select eject.

Dvd, fix it or pitch it?


no these are legitamate questions, the one that wont eject is probably out of timing someone could have pushed the door closed instead of pushing the button a lot of people dont realize this can harm a player what you would have to do to fix this is open it with the power off then plug it in and let the power close it that will normally fix that problem. the one that reads no disk listen and feel for it to spin the disk when turned on if the disk dont spin it wont work let me know what it does or doesnt do. the x box could be a lot of things but listen for disk to spin in it also and get back with me some might be fixable some might not.due to cost
