There are two things, the file format of a disk, DVD,MP4, WMP.

Depends on what format, depends on whether windows media player can read it.

Im guessing you only have windows media player.

There is also a country code, some are set to another country, but this is probably not the issue.

You can open the disk, that i, when you have the disk in, go to my computer, you will see the dvd drive, could be drive letter (D)

you right click on the drive and in the little window you will see
auto play, open, explore, share, and so on.

You can either open or explore, you can copy the files to a folder on your computer, then use a converter to change them to WMA WMV,

You can go to google.com and search free dvd converter, and you will see a few.

Here is one that is safe.

My dvd wont play on laptop


b> Copy-protected DVDs prohibit people from copying them, which is piracy. Copying a DVD to sell or even to give away is illegal. You can play copy-protected DVDs in a standalone DVD player or in your computer's DVD drive, as long as your computer's software is up to date. These DVDs will play the same as DVDs that are not copy protected

Press the "Eject" button on your DVD player to open the DVD tray. Set the DVD into the tray, and push the "Eject" button to close the tray. Press the "Play" button on your DVD player, and the DVD will play. b> On a DVD Drive on a Computer Press the "Eject" button on your DVD drive to eject the DVD tray. Set the DVD into the DVD drive, and push the tray in to close it. Click the "Start" tab on your computer's home screen to open the "Start" menu. Click on "My Computer" to open it. Click on the DVD drive to open the DVD. Click on "Autoplay" to play the DVD.

I have bought a second hand toshiba external cd player xm 1902b. it wont play dvd's. is it not set up to do so?


This is a CD-ROM drive. CD drives will not read DVDs. You need a DVD-RW if you're going to be burning DVDs or if you're only going to be watching DVDs then a DVD-ROM drive would work.

Acer aspire 2930 DVD player only opens some dvds


Try Media player classic under k-lite codec pack. Then open video files on the dvd. If it doesn't help try another codec player. If nothing helps could it be that dvd player is not capable of multilayer dvd reading.

My dvd driive in my computer won't play dvds


Do you mean DVD movies wont play? If so you need to install DVD software. Use Google to search for some or buy some e.g. PowerDVD.

Dvd will not play movies


I'm assuming the system says that there is no disc and you've tried factory DVDs (self made ones can have intermittent results on different burners).

If that is the case, this is probably a problem with the drive's DVD laser. There are two different lasers in most (probably all) combo drives. One for CDs and one for DVDs. You need a new drive.

DVD drive does not play or recognize DVDs but does play CDs


Find out what model drive you have and see if there is a firmware update for the drive.. Sometimes they loose there brain and need to be reprogrammed. If that dosent fix your problem, then the laser is on its way out.. Use a different laser to read dvds vs CDs.

Dvd drive wont accept blank dvd's


The modern DVDs won't play on older m/cs until you upgrade the driver for the DVD drive. Go to the manufacturer's website & download the latest driver for your machine.

Dvd


do you mean wont play on dvd players (connected to tv)
if so its because the software you are using is not compatable.or the way you are burning them.for instance if you use nero dvd (mp4)you can only view with nero but you can config to use with any player.If you mean it wont play on other computers its usually wrong format.you can maybe cure this by updating dvd drive firmware.
