My cd drive on my compaq desktop plays cd's fine but will not play dvd's.what can i do it's a windows xp home


You can only play CDs on a CD drive. In order to play DVDs you need a DVD drive. A DVD drive can play both CDs & DVDs.

Hope this info helped you. Good Luck! :-)

Hi am just installed windows xp on my computer on


Typically doing a custom windows update for hardware can help you find your missing drivers. The difficulty we have at this stage is helping you get to that point since you are missing your network card drivers.

Have you downloaded the motherboard driver package? Sometimes the driver can be found in there.

If all else fails you can buy an plug and play usb to ethernet adapter and then do your custom window's updates.

Should be less than $20 and may be worth the relief from frustration.

hope this helps

Dvds wont play on pc


You can install another DVD player software.
there are plenty of free players on the internet that you can download, or you can buy one at your local software dealer. Once you install this, the newer video codecs should be installed

I dont know how to play dvds on ancer 5610z


Here's something to try:

1) Make sure you are inserting your DVD in a DVD drive. (Usually has a DVD logo on the tray.)
2) With the computer on, insert a DVD in the DVD drive and wait for a box to pop-up. (If a box does not pop up, Go to "My Computer" and double-click on the DVD drive.)
3) Choose to open in a software capable of playing DVDs. (Windows Media Player, PowerDVD, ect.)

If the the software does not play the DVD, this could indicate a missing codec or a hardware problem.

Did you try a DVD firmware update? Some dvds need new firmware to reconize some DVDs

I have an advent laptop and the cd rom does not play any cds or dvds anymore. i have checked the device manager and it came up with the following message Windows cannot load the device driver for this...


you need to reinstall the driver for your rom, which is wierd...it may just require generic drivers off the windows cd, or you may have to download drivers from the manufacturers' website.
