How do i get my dell dimension 3100 to play dvd's and dvd-r's sonic cineplayer doesn't want to do anything for me


Try the Open Source VLC player software (from videolan)

If still no luck, chances are it's your DVD drive (you do know you only get 3 changes of 'Region Code' before it locks up ?)

Dvd/cd rom can't read dvd


Sometimes you just need to clean the disk or the dvd head on your player. If this doesn't work the disk is of the incorrect format.

How can I get my dvd to copy videos when it reads, No Disk? when there's a disk in the player?


hi, possible problem with the dvd, the lens doesn't read the disc or the spindle motor not rotating that is why can not read a disc. try to clean first with a cd lens cleaner, just insert a cleaner to the player to remove dirt and might the lens get sticky. now if still doesn't work, you will need to remove the cover of the player to access the internal part. check for broken part or any obstacle that can block the rotation of the spindle motor.if the motor doesn't rotate anymore you can check the resistance if still there using an analog tester. if no resistance at the pin terminal of the motor, the coil was worn out then you will need to replace the motor.

Monitor says no signal and will not run a dvd


It could be a couple of things. If this monitor is hooked up to a computer, it could be a bad video card. A video card is easily fixed on a desktop, if you're using a laptop you're probably out of luck.

If it's hooked up to a DVD player, check that the cord to the monitor is hooked up properly (make sure the connection goes from the "Video Out" on the player to the "Video In" on the monitor and that all connections are tight, not barely hanging on). If that doesn't work, try a new cable.
This is probably insulting, but also make sure that the monitor is set to the right channel if it's multichannel. For example, if your DVD player is hooked up to HDMI 2, make sure the monitor is set to use HDMI 2 for signal.

If none of these work, it's time to find a tech-happy friend that can inspect everything visually. Hope that helps!

I recently bought Sims 3 for PC. So, when I open my IBM disk tray and put the disk in, the computer doesn't recognize it and I cannot install the game. This game was a little expenisve, so I would


Hi Elizabeth,

Depending on the model of your IBM PC, it could be that it has a CD drive and not a DVD drive. The Sims 3 game is on a DVD. If this is the case you will have to upgrade your CD player to a DVD player.

To test if your drive is working insert an original music CD into the drive and see if it plays. If it does play you most likely have a CD player and not a DVD player, which means you will have to upgrade to a DVD player/writer drive anyway.
These are relatively inexpensive and retail for approximately $20 to $50.

Feel free to reply should you need any further assistance.
Best wishes,

My CD/DVD drive is not reading Rosetta Stone - Espanol Edition. It stars and spins, but then stops. OS: Vista SP2 Disk Drive: Unknown RAM: 3 GB - DDR2


Try playing a music CD to see if it works. Then try playing a DVD ( a DVD movie ) and see if that works. If the CD works and the DVD doesn't then your CD/DVD drive is probably the problem and needs to be replaced.

DVD Burner popping up as ''CD Player'' Wonder if any of you have come across this issue before (and it is veryserious, i have two new games to play!!!). Have an LG DVD Burner, gotSoulstorm for Christmas...


I came across this a few yars back, but i cant for the life of me think how i solved it, i think you have to right click on the drive in my compuer, click properties, and on the recording tab make sure the first checkbox is checked.

I also had this problem on an LG drive.

DVD player stopped working


REstart the system and reinstall the DVD Player program that let the DVD Play.

maybe the DVD disc is required some codecs to play. try another player such as VLC player, or install the DVD player provided in your laptop DVD Rom. You can search and Download VLC player for free just search in google.

May this help, Please notify me before you rate, Thanks, Melnavz.
