Cant play movies from my toshibia laptop


Hi:
There are several reasons why a movie won't play, so I will run a few suggestions by you:

Hopefully ;you have a DVD drive or a DVD RW drive ?

If you insert a DVD or CD into the drive, your computer should recognize that a disk is inserted. If not the drive might be bad

You must have some sort of Software installed to make movies play, such as WinDVD, or PowerDVD

My Acer Aspire 5315 does not play DVD films.


Hi,
to play dvd films, ensure your laptop has a media-player installed. i.e windows media player 9-10-11 et,c. also you could check in My computer/control Panel/system/device manager to see if there any yellow exclamation marks, next to any devices. if there are. you,ll need to re-install drivers for the device.

if this solves your problem, please rate as fixya.

thankyou for using the forum.

Region setting on Acer Aspire 8920


Older DVD drives use RPC-1 firmware, which means the drive allows DVDs from any region to play. Newer drives use RPC-2 firmware, which enforces the DVD region coding at the hardware level. These drives can often be reflashed with hacked or Australia and New Zealand (hardware region coding prohibited by law in these countries) RPC-1 firmware, effectively making the drive region-free. However, this usually voids the warranty and can render the drive inoperable if something goes wrong... better contact your laptop manufacturer regarding this

Ibm t23 laptop dvd rom not reading some dvds


Sounds like you need a DVD decoding software, ie... winvid, interdvd, and powerdvd. Windows media player will play some DVD's, but many DVD's, especially newer ones, need an additional decoder in order to work. You will be able to find the software at filehippo.com, download.com, or IBM's support site. Keep in mind that burning software, ie... nero, roxio, and dvd shrink, have decoders in order to burn the DVD, so they will work as a decoder in conjunction with your media player.

You can also download a program(free)called "any dvd" this program enable you to play any region dvds.
