Playing a DVD-R

I am not able to play a DVD-R on my Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop. They are home vidoes and have been finalized. I have never had any trouble DVDs on my laptop.
What do I need/Or what am I doing wrong.
Ideally, I would like to download and record my DVD on my laptop.

Re: Playing a DVD-R

Your should have 24x CD-RW/DVD (Sony) with your model, if drive is reading well you may be missing DVD rendering software try Power DVD or WINDVD.but still you can only read with the current dive you have its a combo drive that can only read DVD and burn CD's, Recording DVD is not possible.

Dvd works in Power DVD program but cds (music) not working?

Make sure the DVD/CD rom has the latest drivers from and that all of the updates have been installed for windows.

I've found that when using Windows 7 32 bit, that the windows drivers work fine for CDs on my Acer Aspire laptop.

Maybe try another program for the CD playing, downloadable from the Internet.

Maybe try to use a cd-rom lens cleaner if the lens seems to be dusty or dirty.

Good luck on this repair.

I have a dell inspiron 6000. The speakers arent playing any sound from them. I just watched a video from you tube on here the other day, and now..nothing! HELP!

Check the sound properties in the control panel--have you accidentally muted the speakers?
Do you have the sound turned down (using the Fn keys on the keyboard?)

Inspiron 6000 shuts down while playing Magic Match. I have it sitting on external fan, so it's not overheating. This is the only game so far, that shuts it down after 15 minutes of play.

This could be down to a graphics driver that needs updating or a direct x problem. Try updating the graphics driver and see if that resolves your problem.
