Some computers do not come with dvd software installed.Do you have a dvd drive installed?If no software for dvd installed you can also use windows media player or realplayer to play dvds.Click start button,control panel then autoplay.Under dvd movie choose player you like to use and click save.Try inserting dvd again to check for playback.

Hi my dell inspiron 530 computer recently can't play disc ,so like most people i checked for solutions for this problem ,non of them worked which got me furious until i found out that my Region fo


To change the Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change.
If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region and Passkey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: -

Dvd will not play on inspiron 530


Hi Joe,

Does it happen to all CDs that you put inside the DVD player?

Do you hear any grinding noise ? If you always hear a grinding noise then its already a mechanical issue on your dvd drive.

You can also try booting up to a bootable disc (like your OS disc), if its not able to boot up to your OS disc, then you already need to replace your DVD or Optical drive.

Hope you find this helpful.

Thanks,


Dennis

How to insert a dvd


Either navigate to my computer and on the DVD drive right click eject or press the button that is on the DVD drive itself. Then you would remove any disk in the tray and insert a disk with the shiny side face down.

Thanks

Faulty system restore


If you are refering to the DELL system restore on the hard drive you will have to contact DELL and have them ship you the recovery discs for your system. Once you have the recovery discs, insert them in your drive and boot the computer from the CD/DVD to attempt the recovery.

Cd/dvd wont play only wants me to burn


What you describe is a failure of the Read optics of the drive. If you boot to the safe mode, and have the same issue, reseat the drive and there is no change, then the drive is bad. Replacements are generally less than $100

Dell Inspiron 530 CDRW/DVD problems


Are you a smoker? Its possible that a good bit of cigarette smoke buildup has accumulated on the CD burner's internal laser lens. One of those cheap CD cleaner disks might work to clean the laser lens, but usually one would have to open up the CD drive and carefully clean the lens using ear swabs moistened with isopropyl alcohol.
