Hello I have the D1 and it can not play DVD's in the DVD Rom slot. It is only for use with the DVD Navigation Discs. To watch DVD's on the AVIC-D1 you need to get the Pioneer DVD Player or DVD Changer and connect it through the IP Bus and AV Bus to control it from the head unit. The other way to watch DVD's on the D1 is to buy any automotive DVD Player, for example Boss, Lanzar, etc. or use a PS2, PS3, or any other Video Game System that plays DVD's and connect it through the RCA AV Video and Audio inputs. I believe that the AVIC-D3 has the ability to play DVD's from the unit. It can also can play DVIX DVD's. Hope this helps.

My cd drive on my compaq desktop plays cd's fine but will not play dvd's.what can i do it's a windows xp home

You can only play CDs on a CD drive. In order to play DVDs you need a DVD drive. A DVD drive can play both CDs & DVDs.

Hope this info helped you. Good Luck! :-)

It wont play dvds and is reading error 12

The only thing you can try is to use a Laser lens cleaner that uses fluid and run it thru a few times. Any retail store sells them now and cost under $20. If that does not work, it needs to be serviced. Which means a transport replacement, they do not re-align lenses. Repair cost between 125-175 Hope this helps

You need to check a few things. May seem basic, but we start with basic steps.
1) Is the drive a DVD capable drive? Not all optical drives are made to read CD's and DVD's. Earlier models only read CD's. Should either have a raised DVD symbol on the door or a sticker/painted on DVD symbol on the drive door or on the front of the drive somewhere. If so then continue. If not then you need to upgrade your drive. Easy to do on a desktop, maybe harder on a laptop (finding a drive that will fit).
2) is there any DVD player software on the computer? Most DVD players need special software to play the DVD's. If your computer did not come with a DVD and you added one later, you will need to install some software. You can try a google search to see if there are any free DVD player software out there.If you have DVD player software installed then continue.
3) Is there any conflicts in the device manager (Right click my computer, select properties, then Hardware and then Device Manager - XP instructions, if you have a different Operating system let me know) If you see a yellow exclamation point on your optical drive then you have a conflict that needs to be resolved. If all these check out then post a comment back and we will see what we can do. I would like to know what you find out.

Dvd player

Sorry to let you know, but the AVIC D1 does not play movie DVDs. It only has a DVD ROM drive that reads Data DVDs, in other words the navigation DVDs. You will have to add your own DVD Player or a Pioneer DVD Changer to be able to watch movies with the AVIC D1.
