Did you install a DVD player disc that came with the unit? DVD's require a special mpg4 format decoder in order to understand the DVD disc. If you just connected the device it will read data DVD's Music DVD's and regular CD's. But, to play Movie DVD's you need to install the player program, which in turn installs the proper mpg4 codec. If it did not come with a player you can download mpg4 codecs from the internet in a package called "codec pack" Hope that helps you to watch your Latest Releases! Cheers.

What cables do i need to connect my acer laptop to my asus netbook to boot the recovery dvd for the net book and how do i want the bios on netbook to be set thanks

usb cable and external usb dvd reader. it can be done with a thumb drive with a bit of work also.
There is a setting in bios for install, and you should make sure bios is set to boot from either external cd/dvd or thumb drive depending on how you are installing. once the installation is complete you should on next reboot change the bios setting from install to normal, otherwise the usb port will operate at 1 speed instead of 2 which is annoying.
