Go to explorer and see if the E: or D: drives are there.  If the E: drive is not there search for it using add hardware.  If that does not work and is a removable drive remove it, plug it again and restarted.  Test to see if it works.

How to play a DVD on Toshiba Satellite Pro C850


If you know the DVD and the DVD drive is in proper working order, it could mean that the software you are running just may have some problems. Try downloading a copy of VLC (VideoLan Client) this application is free and open source (and no it's not something I created and am just trying to get people to use...it's just something that works great, and completely free) VLC can play almost any video file or DVD that it encounters. If VLC can't play it, I would think it's likely there may be something with your disk or your DVD drive.

Using usb stick


First you will have either copy and pate the movie or download it to your usb drive

One of the benefits of putting files on a USB flash drive is that you can make any type of file portable.


This includes not only documents, spreadsheets and photos, but also media like video clips and movies.


If you have movies saved on your flash drive that you want to view, watching the movies directly from the USB drive is a simple process and can be achieved on almost any computer.


Connect your USB drive to the device on which you want to watch your movies.

This includes all USB-compatible computers, as well as some select television-compatible devices (like the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 or Sony Media Extender).


Launch the file explorer application on your device.

In Windows, access this utility by accessing the "Computer" application and then double-clicking the USB drive to display the files.


If you are trying to watch the movie files on a compatible television device, look for a "media," "device" or "USB input" application or button to bring up the file explorer.


Select the movie file you want to play.

In Windows, do this by double-clicking on the file.


The appropriate media-handling program should automatically launch and begin playing the movie automatically.


If you are using a television device, select the file from the list of compatible files in the device's internal explorer system.


hope this helps

Will not play blu-ray movie Date Night. I have tried 3 movies


Will it play other movies? If so, your "Date Night" disc is almost certianly defective. Try it somewhere else

If not, the player has a problem. Try cleaning the laser with a laser lens cleaner (something like this: http://www.buy.com/prod/memorex-cd-dvd-laser-lens-cleaner-6-brush-drive-cleaner-memorex-cd-dvd/q/sellerid/11408470/loc/101/10340589.html) Blu-Ray is more sensitive to dust because of the thinner laser it uses. If that doesn't work, more likely than not the laser has died or requires adjustment.

[Just for the record, I had an early DVD player (I forgot the brand name) that would play every movie fine except "Stuart Little". This movie worked fine on other players, but not in mine. It would enter the menu>special features all by itself. Let us hope you are not experiencing a similar case.]

Driver


For DVD drives, no special driver software is required. The drives will work with generic drivers provided with all standard operating systems out of the box.

However, DVD movie playing is *not* done by a driver, it requires an application installed on the PC.

For Windows, AFAIR only Windows 7 can play DVD movies out of the box, using Windows Media Center.

All other versions of Windows require a commercial or free player program, e.g. WinDVD (Corel) or PowerDVD (Intervideo) or VLC (VideoLAN, free).

For burning data or movie DVD, also an application program is needed. Windows Vista and later have some limited support for ISO and UDF files systems written to DVDs. Personally, I like CDBurnerXP for data, and Slysoft's CloneDVD / AnyDVD combo for video.

DVD will not play get error message "no URI handler implemented for DVD" I am using Ubuntu 9.10


Which application are you using? If you are trying to watch movies on your computer, the best reader I found is VLC. Try searching google and downloading this and see if you still have problems.

It just stop playing my games and movies. keep


Your DVD drive's laser is malfunctioning.

You have a few options:

1) Decrease the resistance on the laser to increase power, and it may be able to read the discs again. A guide for that can be found here.

2) If that doesn't work, or you do not wish to do that, you can replace the laser head all together. Replacements can be found on eBay. You can follow this guide to replace the laser head.

3) You can replace the DVD drive completely, but it will require taking the original drive's firmware and putting it on the replacement one. The guide for that can be found here.

Screen not working


Step one...try another movie. The file may be corrupted. If another movie works then try to download that one again or do it from a different source. If that is not the problem then the questions are ....are there any devices with an exclamation mark under the Device manager. If so, you may have to reload. Also, will whatever application you are using play another movie? If not deleting and reloading the application (add/remove program) may (should) fix the problem. Tango..
