You need to check that you have the codec for BR video, if you goto http://www.free-codecs.com/ and download the XP codec pack (even if you have vista), install it and then run the DrWatson codec utility, it will list all the codecs installed on your PC. you can also download all the latest codecs from the site.

I put in a blu ray disc but it is not playing in any media player and the disc drives do not recognise that a disc has been entered


Unless the drive in your laptop is a blu-ray drive, it won't recognize a blu-ray disc. A blu-ray drive can recognize and play a regular DVD, but it doesn't work the other way around.

If your computer is indeed fitted with a blu-ray drive, the laser lens may need cleaning. On a laptop, you usually have clear access to the lens with the tray open, so you can try cleaning it with a cotton swab moistened with lens cleaner. Or the disc itself may have a problem. Try another disc and see if the trouble continues.

If the computer doesn't have a blu-ray drive and you will frequently want to play blu-ray discs, get a USB external blu-ray drive. It's easier to find one of those than to locate a suitable blu-ray replacement drive for a laptop. There are many variations of drives used in laptops, but an external drive will always be compatible. And you'll be able to use it with other computers not blu-ray equipped.

I have a dell xps m1530 and i keep getting a message saying that the NTLDR is missing to press any key to restart but when i press a key it just repeats the same message is there anyway to fix this?


This can happen if you have a non-system disc in your CD tray and attempt to boot up the computer. If there is a disc in your CD tray try removing that and see if it works. If that does not work you should go into your BIOS (often your computer will give you a key to press when booting up). Go into boot priority (you may need to look around a little) and make sure that your hard drive is the primary boot device, and not the CD or DVD drive.
I hope this helps!

XPS M1530 DVD Slot Loader making motor noise but can't insert a dvd disc. When attempting to insert a disk it feels like its being blocked or doesn't fit. Please help


the device is blocked or malfunctioned.

if just blocked, clean the inside with a cotton bud dipped in alcohol to remove the dirt.

if the pully rubber is gone or worn it will need a person to replace it.

My daughter put two cd in my dell xps m1530.any idea how to get them out


Hi,
Please try the following:
On your dvd drive there is a very small pinhole. Get a paperclip and try to push it through. This pinhole is used for emergencies where the dvd drive does not eject.
Other thing you can do, is to turn your laptop upside down and remove the dvd rom drive from your laptop. Then unscrew the dvd drive to get the cds out.

I am trying to copy a ps3 game to my computer,but the dvd drive in my computer wont read the disc.Any ideas


The playstation 3 game format is in Blu-ray... but also a special format of Blu-ray to keep people from making illegal copies of the disc. Also the disc is formatted in a way that a PC will not recognize the disc unless the drive has been modified illegally. A standard DVD drive will not recognize a Blu-Ray disc.

Dell xps m1330 dvd drive will not eject cd inside


Im a dell tech, and i hate those cdrom styles, but, that is what the consumer wants, so we make them. Try starting the machine, then press F2 to enter the BIOS. once in the bios, press the eject button. listen for any noises, (an attempt to eject). if you hear a sound, it means the drive should be capable of ejecting the disc, and perhaps the disc has not seated correctly. If the disc will not eject, you must contact Dell. This is from the DELL dcse site: " Optical Drive The XPS M1330 has a slot-loading optical drive instead of a conventional tray-loading module. There is no mechanical eject mechanism for the drive to eject stuck discs. This means you must replace the drive if a disc gets stuck in the drive. After replacing the drive, disassemble the old drive to remove the disc for the customer."
