Dvd player cannot be launched?

Thank you for your request.

There are a couple of possible solutions.If the first does not work, try the next, and ultimately you can call customer service for Toshiba or the company you bought the system from.

First I would try to restart the system.

Second uninstall and reinstall software.

Third Check drivers and other software relating to the dvd player, or disc drives.

Forth to call customer service, there could be more complicated software issues or hardware issues at this point.
