    Use control panel - add/remove programs for the dvd player. Then use control panel - system - hardware - devices and uninstall the dvd player.Let me know what other devices have a red or yellow mark net to them in the device list. power off. ensure the dvd player is properly connected, power cable and ribbon. Boot up and let the system detect the dvd. Load only the driver from the cd for the player. This should fix it.

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,

DVD plays in DVD player is not seen at all by Windows XP


Hi,it's obvious from your problem that the particular disc that cannot be viewed on your computer is of a formatt not supported by the windows XP.some DVDs are of low quality which can be viewed practically on any DVD player but as a result of their low quality and the sensitivity of the Windows they are not recognized by your computer. In as much as other DVDS play on your computer,it means there's no problem with your computer,but an unsupported disc formatt is been trying to be viewed and there's nothing you can do to view a DVD formatt not supported by your computer.please don't be bothered.
Thanks and take care

Dvd drive wont recognize disc


There are a number of possibllities for this problem:

1. Your drive may be dirty. Try to get a drive cleaner, run it then try again

2. The disc itself is faulty. Try using it on another computer's drive and see if you can read it

3. It is a region-specific DVD. Some movies can only be played on DVD's made for that region. Although you can change your DVD's region to be able to read that DVD, you will then not be able to read DVD's for your current region. The recommendation here is to buy a multi-region DVD player. You do not need to get the top of the line model as these players can be quite cheap.

Portable dvd player


First clean the laser diode in the player. Next, are you using burned DVD's or legit ones? Players are not all built the same and neither are DVD's. The cheap DVD's have a cheap medium that a lot of players will not read. Some players will read just about anything you throw in them but quite a few are pretty picky. If you are burning DVD's, make sure they are compatible with your player. Some will play DVIX, MPEG4, others won't. I suggest you get one of those cheap "netbook" computers. Fill up an external hard drive with everything you can download and you will be in business. I think netbooks are going for around $400. They are small, screen size 7-9 inches, and would be the thing to get. They come with up to a 160Gb Hard drive too.

Reads all but DVD-Help PLEASE


When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks? If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD. If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD. Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.
