Windows has stopped the support to play DVDs. They take it for granted that not many users may spend extra money for DVD playback since users could easily watch movies from the internet. In addition, Microsoft does not feel like paying a licensing fee to include DVD codec in the operating system.

When you upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 or something, they may encounter the problem that indicates Windows Media Player won't play DVD. This is because Windows has dropped its support to provide Windows Media Player's built-in DVD codec for Windows 10 and above.

You can try Leawo Blu-ray Player to play DVD.

SOURCE: COMPAQ PRESARIO DVD ROM NOT READING ANY CD AND DVD PLS HELP

It sounds like you need to replace the DVD Rom itself.
They do go bad without warning.
A DVD Rom is not that expensive and should take about 5 min to replace rather easy job.
Happy Holidays

SOURCE: Hi, I have a Compaq Presario CQ56 & the scroll

The scroll pad on the touch pad needs a particular driver Synaptics Pointing Device Driver. This will actually run at the startup after installed which will activate the functionality of scroll on the touch pad. You can also actually turn this function on and off so this is a friendly user.
If you do not have that driver that comes with your laptop you can go here:

or here

Good day.

Dvd on cq62-225nr will not play

First make sure your drive will handle DvD's. Click Start/My Computer and see if a DvD drive is listed. If you have a DvD then some drives will not handle bootleg (made by some individual) DvDs. Try a store purchased dvd and see if it reads it ok. Also, there are some formats your software may not be able to handle.

If you are using Windows Media Player as your dvd player it has problems reading some formats. Go to www.google.com and in the search type: "download vlc player" (without the quotes). Download VideoLan from the site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it, it can handle just about any format. It's totally FREE. Oh, and it doesn't take 15 or 20 minutes to install like Media Player. It'll be up and running in less than 3 minutes.

Is windows media player able to play dvds? how daes it work? my laptop media can not play dvds.. i m feeling tired of it..

You may need codecs in order to play most DVD videos and other formats like DivX. Use this codec pack here. Select the Media Player Classic as the application while you were asked to provide it. K-Lite After that both of your players are ready to play DVDs (its better to have Media Player 11 in your system for a better experience) Enjoy your movie!
