Do follow steps, 1) change your DVD disk :- if it's work, don't worry about the driver. 2) go to Device Manager & check the DVD/CD ROM driver's property, check weather it has been disabled. 3) change your OS or Upgrade current OS 4) if above steps are not worked, then you have to bring your laptop to a service provider...
if you are in warranty period don't remove any parts of it, they will replaced a another DVD driver
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.
1. Completely remove any dvd/cd player/burner softwares (i.e. Nero, Power DVD, etc.).
2. Go to device manager and remove your DVD/CD device from the device list
3. Restart you laptop
4. Windows will then try to reinstall the device drivers again for the DVD drive.
5. After another restart, then reinstall your dvd softwares again.
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
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.
theres a few things you can do here.If you have your instalation disk you can perform repair even though theres nothing to repair your cd will be set to 0.the only time you have a region code set is if some one has set it previously.Dont suppose you wanna do that .You could check your model of cd/dvd player in system information then get the firmware of the net.just type in search engine model of drive followed by firmware.by installing firmware it will auto set drive to 0 (any region)...
You can also download a program(free)called "any dvd" this program enable you to play any region dvds.
