I have panasonic VDR250 with me. When I try to copy the contents of DVD in my laptop using dvd drive, the laptop does not show any contents. I have a DELL laptop with me.
But if I use the same DVD in my friend's TOSHIBA laptop, it show the contents.
Please try to help me to understand the issue. Is this any formatting issue? what could be the solution for it
Some laptop DVD drives will not be compatible with recorded media. The formatting of the disc can be the problem too. A sesion on a disc has to be closed in a certain way to provide compatibility with all equipment. Is the DELL an older unit with just a reader and not read/write capability? Let me know the model of yuor DELL to further assist you.

It means your Dvd-Drive can't read the contents of the Cd/Dvd media, try the media on another computer and check if it can be read or not, if it is so, then your option is to copy the files from the cd to the other Pc and save it to your flash drive, so that you can install it later, or if you can, replace the dvd/cd rom drive with another spare. Good luck.

I am not allowed to copy/paste content from other websites and thus
must link you to it in order to comply with the site's terms of service.
However, hopefully that will solve your problem. Otherwise, it will be
very, very hard to find a driver for Matshita drives, since Panasonic
(which makes the Matshita cd/dvd drives) apparently abandoned all
drivers and firmware for drives not currently being manufactured.
write me at [email protected] if this does not work. On the dvd there is also a zipped version of the map_sd directory, copy it to your pc and unzip it and then copy the contents to your sd card. as the file is so large, some dvd drives have issues reading it.
It could be a software or driver issue. First try updating the drivers for the drive, and try either using different burning software or uninstalling & reloading your current software. I had a cf72 with a DVD/CD combo drive that the DVD reader went out. This could also be the issue, if so you'll need to replace it in order to burn CD's.
plug the camera in via usb so the camera shows up as a removeable drive. if it picks up the camera as a DVD burner instead of drive, install the DVD-RAM drivers (in compatibility mode for XP SP2 w/ administrative privileges if necessary) and browse the contents of the disc - copy and paste the VRO file to your hard drive and rename it as an mpg - should be readable at that point. good luck.
Sounds like more of a software problem, I've had my dvd drive only show up as a cd drive but i think that was only in windows 98? Many problems will start showing up when your disk is very full. Try deleting some old files until you have 25% free space (only 75% full) or 20% free (80 full) at the minimum, then defragment. I recommend using a 3rd party program such as Diskeeper, since windows defrag Isn't very good. If you can not free up enough space because all of your things are too important to delete, think about buying an external hard drive to back up too, or simply look for a bigger hard drive of the laptop and copy the old hard drives contents to the new one using something like norton ghost. Most likely you would need a laptop hdd to desktop hdd converter, which is like $5 or less, so you can copy the contents since laptops can only have one hard drive (usually). If you can't do this or don't want to try it, bring your laptop to a pc repair shop and they will transfer your data to a bigger hdd for you for a nominal fee. Remember, I do not guarantee this to fix your dvd problem, but it is a good idea to do it anyways to increase performance and reliability.
