Disconnect the drive, reboot back to the desktop.Shut it down again reconnect the drive.Turn the computer back on and it should rediscover the drive after it loads back up.

When I open the dvd lid, and I put the dvd in and close it, the screen still says its open and it wont do anything until the dvd lid is closed. Even though I close it, the player still thinks its open.


There is a mechanical switch that is operated by the lid as it's closed. Sometimes, a DVD player such as yours can be made to work by pressing down on the lid but this is a sure indication that something is wrong with the switch. It isn't practical to hold the lid down for the entire time you're viewing a movie so repair or replacement is the only solution

need to know the model of the DVD player and remote to be able to further assist you...but a quick google search with that model # and the phrases "program codes" and "how to" should quickly bring up a how to article or manual for the dvd player with reprogramming instructions.

The dvd player wont open and it isn't reading dvd's.


You will want to check in Device Manager to see if the device is even detected by the computer. Right Click My Computer, Properties, Click Hardware Tab and Device Manager. If it isn't recognizing the DVD drive then it is most likely bad.

I own an iview 2600hd dvd player and im trying to hook it up to my sony trinitron tv...however, no matter how i switch my cables, the dvd player just won't show any picture or audio on my tv...and when...


Try new cables. RCA cables have a tendency to have bad connections internally. Also, triple check that you're on the right input and the wires are properly connected to the DVD player. If all that fails, try the DVD player on a different T.V. and something that uses RCA cables on your T.V, such as a cable box to make sure the input jacks on the T.V. aren't bad, and the DVD player isn't bad.
Through out all of this troubleshooting, you should manage to get the DVD player hooked up.

Why won't my disc that I burn from my Everio share station play on my dvd player?


Some DVD readers simply will not accept burnt dvds, This is usually a problem with lower end/older players. Unfortunately with stand alone dvd players there isn't anything that can be done to update them.
To avoid the issue in the future, I would suggest getting a DVD player that suports DivX, it will be listed as a feature on the box. This will not only guarantee that the dvd player will accept burnt dvd's, but you will also be able to fit much more video on the DVD due to advancements in video compression technology since DVD players first became available, a standard movie instead of taking up the entire 4.7gb of a dvd, will only require as little as 700mb, meaning you can fit up to 6 full movies onto one blank DVD
hope this was helpful. Sorry there is no easy fix for your problem.

Dvd player doesnt read the dvd or cd


Try a different cd if the player won't read any CD or DVD then there is most likely a problem with the actual reading hardware. If under warranty HP should replace, if not can take to a repair shop or purchase a replacement unit. Another thing to try would be looking for a reset to default options in one of the configuration menus to make sure there isn't some software setting that is causing the issue.

I got an Sony HCD S 300 Home Theater set recently. As I put in dvds and cds for playing, the dvd player says NO DISK. Thinking it is because it is not a original dvd it isn't working, I put another DVD...


It could be down to the Region of the Player or the Laser is Failing. As it doesn't play CDs then I suspect the the Laser is Failing (almost failed if it plays a cleaner but not CDs).
