I just bought a brand new Toshiba Satellite P75-A7200. It won't play DVD's and keeps saying wrong area code...I live in Australia, bought the PC in Australia and am trying to play Australian DVD's but


hi, I think this may help. what you need to do first of all is change the default player for DVD's from Toshiba Video Player to Windows Media Player, cant remember off hand how to do that but should be in manual, but try this. go to windows control panel, select 'Default Programs' and click on it, then select 1st option 'Set Your Default Programs' a list of all programs will come up, look for Windows Media Player and click on it, then choose one of the options on the right. The top one sets as default, the bottom one allows you to set file types to open with the program. this should work as it is telling your system to launch that program for DVD's etc, If you cant find your control panel, simply click Start and type it in the little box that appears just above it.
hope this helps

When a bluray disk is stopped the player does not resume where it left off like a dvd it starts from the beginning of the disk


Hi there, this is a problem with ALL Bluray players, it is an annoying format problem, where "resume play "is not available on JAVA enabled Blurays, (BD-J).

JAVA content is usually the interactive menus and extra features on specific Blurays. These are essentially computer programs, so when you close them and re-open them they open from the beginning, (Just like on your computer, when you close a program).

All standard DVD's and non BD-J discs will resume play as expected, this is why some people think there is an intermittent fault, and others say that there model of player is working fine. Hope this helps.

My NEC doesn't read DVD's, DVD-RW and CD read good. Please help! Firmware 1.07 Windows XP


I assume that you are talking about movie DVD's; you need a 3rd party program that can play DVD's, or you need to install the proper codec's to play DVD's; because of fear of "monopoly" lawsuits, Windows Media Player in XP does not natively support DVD playback. You can either look for and install the necessary codec's, or you can download and install VLC player (among others) that have the necessary functionality built in. Try this link:

http://download.cnet.com/VLC-Media-Player/3000-13632_4-10267151.html

It is from download.com, and is tested to be malware free. Load the DVD in your drive, open "My Computer", right click the DVD drive, choose "Open With" and select VLC player.

No Sound when I play a DVD, but I do have sound when I play a Music CD


Open your sound controls to make sure nothing is muted or set on low volume.
If that's not the case, open your audio drivers program and check to see if nothing is muted.

Issues!!help please


If you open the DVD from "Media Player Classic", i think it should work.
Go to the installation folder of K-Lite Codec Pack (Probably C:\Program Files if you didn't change it)
The open de folder "Media Player Classic" and execute "mplayerc.exe".

Make sure the DVD is in the DVD-drive and go to File -> Open DVD

If this does not work, I think you have a very special DVD, or the DVD is damaged...

Please post some feedback
