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.

The DVD player on my Dell Inspiron-530S won't work, you can hear it like it's trying to load but the play screen never comes up.


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. raaj_k001@in.com

How do i play a DVD on my computer? I is a Satellite Pro L770 Series


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

Dvd player cannot be launched?


Thank you for your request.

There are a couple of possible solutions.If the first does not work, try the next, and ultimately you can call customer service for Toshiba or the company you bought the system from.

First I would try to restart the system.

Second uninstall and reinstall software.

Third Check drivers and other software relating to the dvd player, or disc drives.

Forth to call customer service, there could be more complicated software issues or hardware issues at this point.

Dear sir\ma, I have toshiba satellite u300 which i want to upgrade to ultimate but after i download window advisor it told me that my computer does not have a DVD drive,which i need to download.pls help...


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.

thanks

Toshiba error message F3E1000001


Check with all your friends, as someone has enabled the boot password in your bios. Probably a prank, maybe malicious.

If you can find the CMOS battery (might have to take it apart) you could unplug it and remove all bios settings including the password.

ERROR INSTALLING PREINST3.SWM


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.
