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 was using the dvd and then it suddenly stopped working and doesn't recognize when i put a dvd or cd in the drive


This sounds like the drive has failed. If a dvd rom will not read media (or if dvd-rw it will not write media) this is a clear indication that the drive has failed. You can determine your warranty status and start the process here: https://www.csdsupport.toshiba.com/tais/csd/support/acclaim/acclaim_index.cgi

Dvd ,cd worn't work


the driver should allready be installed with windows

What type of problem are you having with the drive?

Does the drive read CD's but not DVD's or niether one?

Did the drive work fine and suddenly stop reading just DVD's but still reads CD's most of the time?

Or is this a new drive that hasn't worked at all yet?

for CD use the driver should allready be installed with windows and almost never needs to be installed seperately

for DVD playback in windows XP you will need to install some sort of DVD driver into the system like power dvd or windvd or you can download DVD support for windows media player here : http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/plugins.aspx#DVDDecoder

But I would need answers to some or at least one of the following questions before being able to help any further

1. What type of problem are you having with the drive?
2. Does the drive read CD's but not DVD's or niether one?
3. Did the drive work fine and suddenly stop reading just DVD's but still reads CD's most of the time?
4. Or is this a new drive that hasn't worked at all yet?
5. What operating system are you using?

I hope this info helps (please let me know if it does not)

How do i connect my dvd ram drive on my toshiba m35x s114?


Is this an external drive? Here a tip: Anytime you use a peripheral with USB you must load the drivers first, then hook up the device. This is only with USB devices. So try uninstalling your DVD driver, unplug the DVD player, reload the driver for the DVD player, then hook the DVD player back up. That should take care of it.
