You need to buy an external DVD RW, you will be able to watch and record DVD and CDs on your Eee.
Here is a lelection, they start from $40
Cheap ones are usually big, probably bigger than your Eee, here are a couple of nice pocket model

Addonics Pocket DVD+/-R/RW - DVDâ±RW drive


External Dual Layer DVDâ±RW Drive


LG LightScribe External DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Slim



Targus PACMB010U DVD/CD-RW Drive

Let me know if this had been helpful.

Many thanks

    Listen, If the Eee does not have internal DVD or even space to put any optical disk inside, how do you think you can stick a disk in it, you need an external unit.

    I am sorry you gave me bad rating for a good solution

    Bye

    If instead of watching DVDs you mean watching movies, then you can download movies from the Internet (possibly legally) and put them in a 4 GB usb memory stick.
    That will be smaller than external DVD.

My Lenovo g550 model slimtype dvd ads8a4s is playing CD's only not DVD's, it does not recognize them. What can I do?


Please double check your drive. GOTO My computer and there you will see disk partitions and optical drive type.. I mean your DVD drive does it says DVD or CDROM? Now if thats DVD then you need to check software you are using.. Its better if you can download VLC
Player thats the best software I have tried.. and no region issue.

My CD/DVD drive won't read/play DVDs and it won't write DVDs either. It used to do this fine, but it doesn't anymore. It will still play and write CDs, but not DVDs. I have tried EVERYTHING to...


You probably will need to replace the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) in your laptop. Go to Google and search for "Dell Inspirion 6000 CD/DVD drive" to find a replacement.
To be sure it's the CD/DVD drive that's defective and not your operating system software, you could also try to boot from a boot-able DVD disk.

How do i work the dvd hard drive


Just rip all your DVDs to your computer or external storage, install a plugin for Windows Media Player (if you have it), and you've now got a digital library of movies that you can watch at any time from anywhere! If you have an xBox 360
or Apple TV, it's super easy to get your DVDs onto your HDTV.
The process is relatively simple, so even if you are not technically savvy, you should be able to rip all of your DVDs without an issue.

The disc drive wont work


If it will not recognize CDs or DVDs the drive is defective. Replacement drives are not very expensive anymore for laptops. In most laptops you can remove the optical drive without a lot of difficulty. You may need to remove the keyboard to get to screws on some models.

My laptop wont play dvds!


One of two possibilities:

1. Your laptop does not have a DVD player installed. Check the bezel on the optical drive and see if it says DVD on it. If not, then it won't play DVDs.

2. The DVD player needs to be replaced as the DVD laser has gone bad.

No Sir, Acer Aspire 4330 comes with different Optical Media Loadings, ( You can see a pdf file here )
Like;
  • DVD/CD-RW combo drive
  • 8X DVD-Super Multi double-layer drive.
But you have the first one, The Combo drive not the super so you can READ both CD's DVD's but can write only CD's.

Hope this removes your dilemma.

DVD/CD play incompaibility


write the publishers - they're using more complex methods of preventing people from legally watching their legally purchased DVDs on anything other than sanctioned standalone players.

Compaq Evo N610C will not play DVDs


I hate to ask silly questions but are you sure you have a DVD drive installed? This model cames with 4 options for optical drives and 2 of the options did not support DVDs.
Look on the door of the drive an make sure it imprinted with DVD somewhere.
