DVD WONT READ DISC ON HP COMPAQ nc6220


Was the disc made by someone or purchased from the store? Some players have a problem with certain dvds that someone made. Maybe your player can't handle the dvd format. Windows Media Player can't read all formats.

When you click Start/My Computer Is your dvd drive listed under my computer? If not, that's the problem.

My cd/dvd player do not open cd or dvd automatically and I must go to my computer to open up the cd or dvd. Sometimes it ask if I want to format the cd even if it is an original


Your DVD player does not recognize the format that is put into the disc and so does not read.
When it is put into the PC , it might ask for formatting but is not possible when it is a only read disc.
So check the format you have recorded to be acceptable to the player .

DVD Player On Laptop Stopped Working


Does it work for anything? Does it read data or audio CDs? Canyou save files to it? Can you format a CD/RW? If NOT reinstall the DRIVER.

If it does I would reinstall the DVD display program,such as WINdvd.

Hi I have an NEC NDT-41. The dvd player has stopped working. It gets stuck on 'Reading' for a while and then eject dvd. Happens to a number of DVD's so I ruled out a dirty dvd. Any suggestions? Thanks


Your DVD is likely in the wrong format for your DVD player to read. Try downloading the DVDs in another format or convert from DivX to DVD. Cheers, eiger3790.
