Same thing... three "Base System Device" items unknown in Device Manager. Sound works for me but DVD playback is very choppy in VLC and won't play at all in WMP. I have the AMD Turion64 based model with NVIDIA graphics. I have installed the NVIDIA drivers successfully and get my full screen resolution, but DVD playback will not work. Please help!?

Video playback problems on pc


Jerky play back on a PC is determined by a few things. Video card memory, RAM, CPU processor speed, and *codec*. VLC has it's own codec so does not rely on the ones supplied by Windows. If even VLC is playing it back choppy, try lowering the video resolution. It may be too high for the video card to handle.

Perhaps you don't have enough RAM to run the file at it's full resolution. Reduce background tasks or close them using the task manager. Upgrade your video card, add more RAM. If you can't add RAM or a video card - either reduce the resolution setting on the camera for next time, or use the HDMI port on the camera to directly playback video to a HDMI device.

*codec* - "A codec is a device or computer program capable of encoding or decoding a digitaldata stream or signal" - Wiki

DVD/CD drive won't recognize discs. System says corect driver installed


Is it a disc that someone made on their computer and gave to you or is it one you purchased from the store? Computers sometimes have a hard time reading a disc that someone made and gave to you. Try a disc that you purchased and see if it plays it.

See if you can update the driver in the device manager.

Uninstall the DvD Drive from the device manager, then reboot and let it reconfigure everything. Go the Control Panel and under System find the device manager. Right Click on the dvd drive and select uninstall. Reboot.

Reseat the the disc by unplugging the power cord, remove the battery, then turn the laptop over and remove the screw that holds the dvd drive in place. Pull the drive out, then put it back it.

If you are using Windows Media Player try the VLC player.
Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com andin the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Downloadand install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It'sa very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formatsand media. It's totally FREE.

I would reinstall the sound driver by going to the control panel choose system then when the device manager tab comes up choose hardware.Find the sound devices then right click on it to remove it.Windows will autimatically re-install the device.

No audio when playing dvd


There can be many reasons why this happens but one of the common reasons is that your sound drivers are outdated or corrupted,, to fix this problem go to control paniel, hardware and sound, device manager , and in there find the sound drivers, if there is a little yellow signal its because they are corrupted, you must right click it and uninstall, and reboot,,it should fix them. Another problem could be your playback program it doesnt have the codecs needed to play the sound,, i recommend you downloading Vlc Player and playing dvd with that.... One last piece of advice is i recommend checking the volume settings.

Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because there is a problem with digital copy protection between your DVD drive, decoder, and video card. Try installing an updated driver for your video card.


I know this probably doesn't qualify as a 'solution', but try using VLC to play your DVDs instead of Media Player. From what I understand, Media Player has a whole host of issues with DVD playback.

VLC is free and can be downloaded from here:

E-System laptop with slow dvd playback


This can be a bit of a tricky one to figure out. My initial response would be that you have another program or process that is causing your computer to play 'choppy' video. When you have a newer computer that was recently working just fine and now all of the sudden the video is choppy, it is usually due to another process using CPU cycles that are so important to video playback.

Start playing a DVD, but don't go to full-screen mode. Open the Task Manager. Right-Click on the task bar and select Task Manager. Click on the 'Processes' tab. There is a column labeled CPU, click on the heading 'CPU' twice. This will order the processes in order from highest CPU usage to lowest. The top two processes will most likely be your DVD player and the process that is causing your choppy playback.If the offending process isn't essential (i.e. anti-virus), then click on said process and then click the "End Process" button.

Hope this helps.
