Dvd won't play

Go to default programs set your DVD player to open and auto start all video. So that when you place a DVD or CD in the drive it will auto load without you having to keep right clicking and opening the video. What may be happening is you may be clicking to open to many times and it has to catch up to open the video possibly. I would go that route and see if this fixes the matter. John

I cant play a disc or DVD


Please try to reboot your laptop then go to CMOS Settings and detect the CD/DVD Rom and try to see if it is detected by your system. If it is detect ted then exit CMOS Settings and then load the Operating system you have and ope the DVD/CD Rom you have. But if it does not detect the DVD/CD Rom then i advice you to find a computer technician to help you fix the problem cause hardware problem is the main reason why it does not detect the disk drive you have, its either the connection bus is not properly plug or the Disk drive is damage or not functioning well.

My Sony Vaio FR-130 will read cds and will read DVDs that are not copyrighted but will not play dvd's that are copyrighted.

Try reloading the DVD drivers...If you don't have them on cd, you can download drivers from sony website. once you download drivers, reboot comp. see if that works...let me know.

good luck

The decoding program was apparently lost during the restore. Follow the link bellow, it will take you to the decoding software download at IBM's support site. This should correct your problem, if not let me know.
