Install VLC media player. Once installed, insert your DVD. If it doesn't autorun & ask what program to open it with, then open VLC (there will now be an icon for it on your desktop)--> File (or media)-->open disc-->choose your DVD.

Cheers!

Well, there are two ways to open the DVD drive. First is to press the little button on the front of the DVD drive (usually found towards the top in the front of your pc or on one of the sides (or USB) on a laptop.
The second way is to click Start, then Computer. In the list of drives that opens find your DVD drive and right-click on it. Select "Eject" . Place the DVD on the tray and either lightly nudge the tray or press the little button on the front of the DVD drive. One of two things will happen. Your DVD will automatically play or a window will open asking you what you want to do. This depends on how Autoruns is set up on your machine.

My dvd does not play in laptop due to digital copyright problem. what can i do to fix this? no dvd wil play


Copy-protected DVDs prohibit people from copying them, which is piracy. Copying a DVD to sell or even to give away is illegal. You can play copy-protected DVDs in a standalone DVD player or in your computer's DVD drive, as long as your computer's software is up to date. These DVDs will play the same as DVDs that are not copy protected

Press the "Eject" button on your DVD player to open the DVD tray. Set the DVD into the tray, and push the "Eject" button to close the tray. Press the "Play" button on your DVD player, and the DVD will play. b> On a DVD Drive on a Computer Press the "Eject" button on your DVD drive to eject the DVD tray. Set the DVD into the DVD drive, and push the tray in to close it. Click the "Start" tab on your computer's home screen to open the "Start" menu. Click on "My Computer" to open it. Click on the DVD drive to open the DVD. Click on "Autoplay" to play the DVD.

Why dont my burned dvd's play


The DVD may not be closed after burning. Check to see if the DVD has been closed. An opened DVD allows you to add more data and may not play.
Open a file on the DVD to see if it plays.

URGENT! DVD not ejecting or playing.


It seems you will need to open the damn thing, or search for a tech, verify your warranty, dont void it.
First you can try to move a little bit the dvd, unplug and plug, change disc, ieverything that can move a part inside the dvd must be pressed, surely is stucked between the play and the open stage.

IDVD movie opens before menu when played on DVD player


In your iDVD project go into the DVD Map menu.
(Little flow chart like icon in the bottom-middle of the iDVD menu screen.)

Look for the very first icon in the map. (Upper left)
This has a small DVD symbol and a play icon on it.
Delete this icon.
Re-burn your DVD.
The menu should be shown first now when you play the DVD.

Power dvd 5 will not play. When I put dvd tries to play floppy dr


OK, try this then
Put in a dvd again, when asked if you want it to open with Power DVD, press yes
When power dvd open, DONT press play, in the meny you will find the add button, press that one, and point it to the dvd, that will hoppfully mount the image to the power dvd since you told the program where the file is.

You know that power dvd dosent lay all formats right? so if it is a burned dvd you trying to play make sure that it is a format supported with power dvd

Let me know how it goes

The Lense is dirty just open your dvd and get an eye pad, deep it in methylated spirit and wipe on the lense or just run a lense cleaner and put the dvd it should be able to play.
