DVD player stopped working

I have a Toshiba Satellite and my DVD player suddenly stopped working. When I put in a DVD I get an error message that reads: "windvd mfc application has stopped working- a problem caused the program to stop working correctly" They then say they will notify me if a solution is available and nothing happens. Any suggestions?
I have Windows Vista- the basic version. These are not homemade DVD's.

REstart the system and reinstall the DVD Player program that let the DVD Play.

maybe the DVD disc is required some codecs to play. try another player such as VLC player, or install the DVD player provided in your laptop DVD Rom. You can search and Download VLC player for free just search in google.

May this help, Please notify me before you rate, Thanks, Melnavz.

I use InterVideo WinDVD version 5 on my VAIO desktop computer from 2005. I actually has bought this computer to have possibility to watch DVD discs RAM format, which I'm getting from Panasonic Video...


If this same software worked previously then I would reload the software. If that does not do it then your laser mechanism may have lost its ability to properly focus on the disk surface of ram disks.. There may also be a firmware update that will improve the playback characteristics of your player.

hey make sure that your procedure in making a dvd is making a dvdmovie something like that, i think is that you just copy the video as data not a dvd format although you burn it in a dvd make sure you choose the right option in intervideo.

Does it work for anything? Does it read data or audio CDs? Canyou save files to it? Can you format a CD/RW? If NOT reinstall the DRIVER.

OK... see if this:

Toshiba Satellite Pro C50 Laptop Optical DVD Drive Bezel Assembly K000888950 will work for you?
See eBay: 272402441049
$20 NEW ~ Including shipping from Denver.

The ONE thing that does bother me about this Auction is the word "BEZEL"... is it just the BEZEL without the actual drive? Please MESSAGE the seller and ask!

Final note: Be VERY careful about DVD Drives that are listed as "NEW" (other) ... MOST times that decodes to USED!

DVD player in Toshiba laptop won't work


First check that it is indeed a CD/DVD drive.

Also, you didn't say whether it was a video or data DVD. Assuming it's a video DVD, you'll need an mpeg2 decoder. (Something like WinDVD, PowerDVD, or Nero Showtime, or one of the many open source alternatives)

If neither video or data DVD's will work, you may need to update your driver for the drive, on the Toshiba website.

Your antivirus is detecting the gpiproxy.dll as a "hacktool" or "virus". I suggest that you either uninstall or disable your AV when you reinstall WinDVD. I use Landesk AV and I finally figured out that the AV was not allowing the dll file to register or it was deleting it. So I uninstall Landesk, installed WinDVD and it worked fine. Afterwards I reinstalled Landesk and it still played the DVD fine.

You need a piece of software to play DVD movies. Is this an actual DVD movie, or is it an MP4 or WMV/WMA file?

Usually you need something like WinDVD to play a DVD movie. I don't think Media Player can play those.

Did you recently install another piece of software that might have affected your ability to play DVDs?
