I formatted my hard drive and now the dvd player doesn't read it

I can watch movies, listen to music etc on my computer via my hard drive but my dvd player suddenly doesn't read it. The other dvd player says this device not supported yet both these dvd players did read the hard drive before I formatted it. I think I need new software/drivers?

I agree with you, probably need to install at least the drivers. Google your dvd player's make and model number with driver at the end, and see what you can find. Some sites have free drivers, and some want you to pay to update your driver base. I would try for free drivers first, and see if you can get it working with them. Not sure why you formatted your hard drive, so I'm not sure if you have another issue or not, but trying the drivers would be the first step. Good luck, hope this helps.

Make sure your speakers and dvd player disk is clean. Skips are common from the lazer reading and will read much better with a quick check on the cd.

What fix to apply to HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GWA4164B in Dell Dimension E310 so it can read/play a dvd movie?


Try the following:

1. Go to the Dell.com support site and be sure you have the latest updates for your computer's operating system and the DVD drive, especially the DVD drive's drivers BIOS.

2. Make sure you have the software to play the movie, like Sonic, Windows Media Player, Power DVD, Quicktime, etc. and be sure they are the latest versions.

3. Depending on the movie format, not all DVD drives will play all DVDs. The most common discs are DVD-R and DVD+R and file types like *.avi, *.mpeg, *.mp4, *.mov and then commercial formats. Also try the movie in another machine or DVD player and see what happens.

Most probably your harddrive is formatted using NTFS file system, while your DVD player only understands FAT32 filesystem.
Check the format of your drive by hooking it up to a computer and opening it's properties. And check your DVD player's specifications regarding USB support in it's manual or online, on manufacturer's website support section.
If indeed the filesystem type is the problem, you can do a couple of things:
1) Purchase a Flash pendrive of suitable capacity (these are FAT32 usually) and use it for viewing pictures & videos on your DVD player,
2) Move everything temporarily from your external hard disk to your computer's disk and re-format your external drive using FAT32 filesystem. Note, that FAT32 has some disadvantages, like a 2GB file size limit. And also remember, that formatting the drive wipes everything from it, so be sure to copy all stuff to your computer's internal drive first!
3) Check the possibility of connecting your PC to the TV directly and forget about the DVD player for viewing pictures and videos.

MY dvd player is gone. I have tried uninstalling. updates. everything it is seriously GONE!!! how can I get it back so I can watch movies, listen to music ect..??????


I am guessing you either mean that the computer cannot locate the DVD drive or the program you use to watch DVD's is gone. If it cannot find the DVD drive then reinstall the DVD drive drivers that came with the computer and if it is the second then use Windows Media Player and if that is gone then download it from the Microsoft website

I tried plugging in my WD hard drive to my DVD player to watch movies but the player wouldn't recognize it. Thank you!


First thing is to check what format the HDD is using - if it's been formatted on a Windows box, it's likely to be NTFS - and a lot of consumer electronics devices can't read NTFS, just FAT or FAT32.
