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.

Re: DVD player stopped working
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.

no, your dvd drive has gone bad. to check if it is working or not your try to manually open the content of the cd and try copy on the hard drive. if it copies fine then the cd is good if not cd is bad. you might get a error message of bad sector or data randomization. if it does not open at all the cd drive is bad. firstname.lastname@example.org
You need DVD playing software on the laptop to play. It usually comes with the laptop if you have the original install disks. Otherwise you will need something like http://download.cnet.com/Easy-DVD-Player/3000-7970_4-10104512.html
May be, that advisor made a mistake. DVD drive is required to setup the operating system from the dvd. As you said, toshiba satellite u300 has a dvd writer. that can surely read dvd. Please ignore that message if you can play dvd on your laptop.
turn off your pc,open your pc try to remove the dvd drive and put it back again.turn it on you must see your dvd drive from the opening .if its still not appearing go to control panel,click the add hardware.make sure that you plug it correctly.

1. update the driver: go the toshiba website, go to support, provide system info and look for knowledge base info related to your problem and also look for possible driver updates - post the model of your laptop and we'll help getting the page for ya!
make sure the device is enabled in windows and in the bios.
also disable any advance features (check with toshiba if you have any.. .and make sure your driver is updated before), lastly play around with the settings (make sure the driver is updated before doing this)
and remember to try one thing at a time, test, then move on to try something else.. be patient and methodic.
The work around for this is to take the Toshiba restore disk and do a dvd copy disk to disk and use the copies to restore the computer. I had the same problem and the disk would not read correctly. I called Toshiba and they were no help. I saw a post on another web log and they suggested copying the origianl restore disks. They copies ran without a problem.
