I just bought a brand new Toshiba Satellite P75-A7200. It won't play DVD's and keeps saying wrong area code...I live in Australia, bought the PC in Australia and am trying to play Australian DVD's but


hi, I think this may help. what you need to do first of all is change the default player for DVD's from Toshiba Video Player to Windows Media Player, cant remember off hand how to do that but should be in manual, but try this. go to windows control panel, select 'Default Programs' and click on it, then select 1st option 'Set Your Default Programs' a list of all programs will come up, look for Windows Media Player and click on it, then choose one of the options on the right. The top one sets as default, the bottom one allows you to set file types to open with the program. this should work as it is telling your system to launch that program for DVD's etc, If you cant find your control panel, simply click Start and type it in the little box that appears just above it.
hope this helps

Window media player cant open my file


You probably need codec pack for that, and update of media player is not bad idea either.Go to free-codec.com and get what you need.

My Windows Media Player does not show video, plays only the sound. Despite that the program tells that the codec is obtained. However, it also tells that it cannot open the configuration file.


Some videos have area restrictions. I don't know if this is your case but if you down Windows Medai Player Classic from here for example; from download.cnet.com/Media-Player-Classic/3000-2139_4-10518778.html you'll be much wiser. It plays anything that is in avi format...

How to play


You can open Windows Media Player by going to the directory "C:/Program Files/Windows Media Player" and Click on "wmplayer.exe"

This assumes you installed Windows to your drive labelled "C"

To play a supported file, open it in the program by clicking "File" on the top menu and clicking "open", then selecting your file.

Windows media player can't play .wmv files


  • Firstly a UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterrupted Power Supply - meaning emergency backup power in the event of a mains power failure. This is not a type of PC.
  • Secondly - Windows media player does not support every type of movie format, as Microsoft Update it from time to time, some formats will still not be supported, these are known as codecs.
  • Thirdly, codecs to support your particular format can usually be downloaded and added to Windows Media Player, however i can not think of any reason .wmv files are not supported by Windows Media Player.

You could try re-downloading the latest version of Windows Media Player from one of the links provided below.
WMP 11 will support the latest codecs, but if for some reason you find yourself needing the older version, use WMP 10.

You will most likely have to remove your current version of WMP, and you can do this by using Windows Add/Remove programs.
  1. Click on the Start menu button ( bottom left corner of your screen. )
  2. Click on Control Panel.
  3. Click on Add or Remove Programs.
  4. Click on Windows Media Player in the list.
  5. Click Remove ( right hand side of the listing )

Microsoft WMP 11 is available by clicking on this link:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/default.aspx

Microsoft WMP 10 is available by clicking on this link:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/10/default.aspx

WMV 11 is available by clicking on this link:

If you are able to hear sound while starting PC issue is not with sound card. that is installed and working properly. If you are clicking on any file that is not playing then window media player is not supporting that file. If you are directly opening window media player from start>>Program>>access>>>>window player and it is giving error. It mean that your player is corrupted. You can upgrade that with higher version of player by going this link. www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/9series/player.aspx
