The DVD player could be defective. If it is not seen in the device manager within Windows, then it is not being seen at all by the Operating System.

Check your connections to the DVD drive. On many laptops, the DVD can easily be removed and reinserted.

I just replaced my original CD/DVD ROM with a Toshiba SD-R2512 CD-RW/DVD ROM in my 1805-S253 running Windows ME. I used "Roxio Easy CD Creator" for writing to CD's. Everything was "plug'n'play" except the bezel that came with the new drive had to be swapped out. Windows ME recognized the new drive immediately and I didn't have to load any new drivers. This upgrade will probably work on other 1800 or 1805 Satellite series machines.

Error code 39

Error code 39 means your CD drive or DVD drive is missing or not recognized by Windows or other programs, so you cannot play or access a CD or DVD.

This issue might have occurred after you installed, uninstalled, or updated a program or Windows Vista.

Also make sure the DVD drive is enabled in the Bios

I am not able to install it.The windows is recognising the LG player.


Cd and dvd drives are installed automatically on windows when they are connected properly. if your drive is not installing then your computers windows has problems, I would insist that you use recovery cd's to restore the computer to original state or use the windows installation cd to install windows to the computer again.

Note that the cd / dvd drive may work outside of windows, so you may be able to install windows with the drive even though it doesn't work in windows. check bios if the drive is detected there or not.

heres some info on the bios, how to get there and how to use it.

you may need to change the boot order so that the cd starts before the hard drive.

Dvd decoder

YOu need a 3rd pary dvd player software installed, Like power dvd. Power DVD , Win Dvd etx, you should have gotten a copy of a player when you brought your computer, If you didnt or cant find it you can download one, many have trial versions or you can get a free one.

If you get a trial version of Power Dvd it automatically installs a dvd decoder. even if power dvd trial expiers and you cant use it anymore you will still be able to play the dvd's on windows media player cause the decoder will remain there and media player will have axcess to it :)
