This is a common issue with Vista where few of the applications which may not work even if they are compatible with Vista.

I recommend you to try downloading and installing Service Pack 1 for Vista if you are using a Genuine or preinstalled version of Vista from the link below :

http://download.microsoft.com/download/3/a/9/3a9b72c2-527d-4694-8a49-84c056d4c34d/Windows6.0-KB936330-X86-wave0.exe

The issue should be fixed if the issue is with the Operating System because of which few applications are not operating correctly.

Additionally, I recommend you to try other applications like KLM Codec pack or VLC Media Player which use less RAM and Processing power when compared to Quick Play and Windows Media Player and I use them myself in my PC.

These applications are also capable of playing more video and audio formats which Quick Play and Windows Media Player cannot play.

Download K Lite Mega Codec Pack (KLM) which includes Media Player Classic to play most of the audio and video files from the link below :

http://files.3dnews.ru/pub/soft/multimedia/codec/klmcodec417.exe

You can download the VLC Media Player for yor Notebook from the link below :

http://www.videolan.org/mirror.html?mirror=http://mirror.services.wisc.edu/mirrors/videolan/&file=vlc/0.8.6i/win32/vlc-0.8.6i-win32.exe

Better way is to save the file in the Notebook and double click it once the download is completed to install it.

I am sure this is going to resolve your play back issues.

Why my laptop DVD player freezes suddenly while playing, just on some certain CDs or DVDs even the same CDs or DVDs works properly in other laptops and PC?


Seems your laptop DVD player's laser diode lost it's capacity. If it is not that old, try the followings:
1. Blow some air with a watch air blower or an air can. Try the DVD/CD which freezes. If this doesn't work
2. Put a drop of lens cleaner and wipe with caution to the lens. Wait for a few second and try playing the DVD/CD. Don't use force when cleaning the lens. This should be just touch and wipe action.

If this is not the case and the drive is old, you need to replace the drive. This should cost about 30$ to 45$. I did mine last month.
Good luck

Acer aspire 2930 DVD player only opens some dvds


Try Media player classic under k-lite codec pack. Then open video files on the dvd. If it doesn't help try another codec player. If nothing helps could it be that dvd player is not capable of multilayer dvd reading.

How Can I Fix My Laptop DVD/CD Player? It's Not Working Right Anymore


Provide a CD/DVD cleaner disc and clean it maybe it help;
I encoutered that problem 3 months ago, the DVD ROM recognized only few DVD disc, other DVD's won't even the windows is freshly installed. The laptop was return back to the store they replace it.

However, in your case; it work fine before so maybe i suggest you to clean your DVD rom using the cleaner, if not work then , scan your computer with a potent antivirus, if this not work also, maybe i recommend to format and reinstall the system,

If all of those are not working maybe its time for you to enjoy the warranty of your laptop if the laptop has a warranty. hope this help.

By default, Windows does not include a DVD decoder (which is what you need to watch DVDs).
If you are using WMP10: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/plugins.aspx
If you are using WMP11:
http://savvybytes.com/2006/10/02/playing-dvds-with-windows-media-player-11/

Install the codec and you will be able to watch DVDs!

Problem Playind DVDS


Even the most basic pc should be able to play DVD's, firstly try a different dvd player sofware, see if any change and don't have any programmes running in the background. If you still have the same problen, i would return to your retailer and ask for a exchange, because some companies do not like you messing with the hardware or settings, and of course can void your warranty.
