    I had to wait until I got to work this morning to try the suggested fix; therefore, I did not know how to rate the suggestion. Now that I have tried the fixes and they didn't work, I can rate it as thanks for trying.

This is because Windows has dropped its support to provide Windows Media Player's built-in DVD codec for Windows 10 and above. So users may not be able to play DVD via Windows Media Player. You can try to download another DVD player program on your PC. You can try Leawo Blu-ray Player, which is a free 4K and region-free player.

Why is the projected video black in the Player? If you can see the Player, but the Video and Visualization pane is black, this usually indicates that your video card is not configured correctly. You can usually correct this problem by changing the video acceleration and/or overlay settings for your video card. To change video acceleration, do the following: 1. In Windows Media Player, on the Tools menu, click Options. 2. In the Options dialog box, click the Performance tab. 3. In the Video Acceleration area, move the slider to adjust the video-acceleration capabilities of your video hardware. Drag the slider to Full to use all available video acceleration. Drag the slider to None to use basic video-acceleration settings that work with most video hardware. To change overlay settings, do the following: 1. In Windows Media Player, on the Tools menu, click Options. 2. In the Options dialog box, click the Performance tab. 3. In the Video Acceleration area, click the Advanced button. 4. In the Video Acceleration Settings dialog box, under Video Acceleration, clear the Use overlays check box.

CD disk is plays, but DVD disk in no playing,,sometimes dvd plays,mostly no disk

try cleaning the laser lense
If you have a dirty lense it can still read cd because data is not as compressed on dvd, each byte of data takes up far less space on a dvd so the dirty lense might not pick it up whereas it might pick it up on a dvd

Easy way to burn WMV video to DVD and play on a DVD player

One of the most popular video formats used with computers and found on the web is WMV. WMV is wide compatibility with Windows PCs. it short for Windows Media Video. And it is the name of the video encoder that was created by software giant Microsoft. The advantage of WMV is that Good compression and quality. WMV movies are played with third party media player programs such as "Windows Media Player, "RealPlayer" and "VLC player". A lot of people saved WMV clips onto compute and want to make WMV to DVD for playback on a DVD player watch videos on TV screen.

DVD ( Digital Video Disc ) is an optical data storage device which can hold large capacities of digital data like high quality video and movies. A VOB ( DVD Video Object or Versioned Object Base ) file is a container format for DVD video files. An explanation of VOB files is beyond the scope of this article, but a study of the software part of the DVD format is essentially a study of the VOB container file format. With CD’s or Compact Disc’s becoming virtually obsolete with the emergence of high capacity storage HD DVD’s and Blueray disc’s, more and more video editing tools are geared to conversion between these two highly popular media formats, WMV to DVD.

How to convert WMV file to DVD?
Before we go to detail steps, there are some Pre Requirements: A blank DVD disk (DVD +R, DVD-R, DVD+RW or DVD-RW), rewritable DVD-ROM, A WMV to DVD Converter. Most DVD burning software can easily burn WMV files to a DVD as data. Here we use Daniusoft DVD creator. It can burn WMV Video files to DVD directly.

My media player want play dvd's

Maybe your screen resolution needs to be higher? What type of error message are you getting? Are these dvd's that you were able to play before?

Most computers will have problems playing dvd's that someone made for you on their computer. Try a store purchased dvd and see if it plays.

You can always reinstall windows media player at Microsoft's site below.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/windows-media-player

You can also try the VLC Player. It comes with drivers and codec. I've seen it solve a lot of issues that Media Player could not fix.

Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.

DVD won't Play

If i understood you right you need a DVD player program. If so i would recommend you to try VLC Media Player.. VLC is a portable multimedia player, encoder, and streamer supporting many audio and video codecs and file formats as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols..

Play dvd nothing - play s/d card (video) sound but no picture.

You need to update the dvd softwear. Check the default settings for playback of media,if it is set to windows media it won't work if you hav'nt installed the correct updates. Choose the Toshiba dvd player as the default player and it should work. If you prefer windows media then you can get the updated codecs from ' free-codecs.com ' Easier still,try uninstalling your windows media player and installing windows media 11, this will usually resolve the problem.
