There are few reasons. First is the choosing the correct configuration that will allow it work. make sure standard CD/DVD option is active. like you can see below

Also region code is important if you are only having DVD playback issue.

Hope it can be helpful, if you need further assistance please do not forget to include detailed description and symptoms of the issue so we can provide precise solution.

Good Luck

Try media player classic a software that can play dvds and cds
why the DVD wont play might be for different reasons... 2 broad category software / hardware 0.I ll assume its a drive that can play cds and dvds 1.software- u must have a problem with the drivers. Drivers tell computer's brain how to connect to each of its organs(parts like monitor keyboard DVD drive etc) if this is missing its like ur brain doesnt know how to move ur right hand...u ll need to reinstall the drivers then... u ll get the drivers from the website for the laptop Hardware 2. next try using a lens cleaner for ur drive it usually is an air can and a disc... try that ... 3. If still the problem hasnt been solved... the trouble maybe with the drive physically which means u d have to replace the DVDdrive...

Blu ray wont play


That machne does not have a bluray drive & that is the simple reason why you can not play a blu ray disc. This is what your drive supports.
Plays Standard or multiregion DVD's & Audio CD's. Records DVDs 8x & CDs 24x & Dual Layer Super Multi. No Bluray or HD DVD,

If you were sold the machine as a bluray laptop then take it back & demand your refund.

After I reinstalled my pc, the toshiba dvd-rom (sd-c2502) only plays cds, not dvds.


Try re-installing your the driver for your dvd rom. Then try to put different dvds and check if it can read from your drive. If problem remains, I suspected it's your dvd rom is faulty

Cd dvd drive only recognises cds


Just check if the region code has not been locked. If you cannot play DVD's at all, first clean the lens, then install a good DVD player like cyberlink etc and then try. If the issue is related to Data DVD's as well, change the media that you are using, eg change the media type to Samsung, Sony and check. Lemme know if it works.
