IT won't play DVD but it plays all other CD. Original OS was ME and upgraded to XP 2nd edition. In "My Computers" it shows it as a CD drive not a DVD drive. Ive updated the bios and still doesn't...


This is because your unit is indeed just a CD-RW unit - it doesn't have the DVD part. If you need that then you will need to replace it with a combo or a DVD- RW unit., something like

My LG DVD RW can not play DVD


Are you sure that your ROM can't play the disc or is it that you don't have a program to play the disc? To my knowledge Windows XP didn't come packaged with a DVD Decoder program; except for XP Media Center. There are some FreeWare programs out there that you can download, or you can pay for the program that decodes DVDs so that you can watch them. If your DVD isn't recognizing any type of DVD that you put into the ROM, then try playing a CD\DVD player cleaning disc in it. If that doesn't work, then you will probably have to get another DVD-ROM.

My NEC doesn't read DVD's, DVD-RW and CD read good. Please help! Firmware 1.07 Windows XP


I assume that you are talking about movie DVD's; you need a 3rd party program that can play DVD's, or you need to install the proper codec's to play DVD's; because of fear of "monopoly" lawsuits, Windows Media Player in XP does not natively support DVD playback. You can either look for and install the necessary codec's, or you can download and install VLC player (among others) that have the necessary functionality built in. Try this link:

http://download.cnet.com/VLC-Media-Player/3000-13632_4-10267151.html

It is from download.com, and is tested to be malware free. Load the DVD in your drive, open "My Computer", right click the DVD drive, choose "Open With" and select VLC player.

My cd drive on my compaq desktop plays cd's fine but will not play dvd's.what can i do it's a windows xp home


You can only play CDs on a CD drive. In order to play DVDs you need a DVD drive. A DVD drive can play both CDs & DVDs.

Hope this info helped you. Good Luck! :-)

DVD Drive not being recognized as a DVD drive


That is not unusual.
Several of my CD/DVD drives are listed as CD drives.
They still play and write DVDs.
The problem is cosmetic and not worth spending time on.

Now if you are trying to play a DVD movie you are going to need a CODEC (Coder/Decoder).
Windows XP does not include a CODEC to play DVD movies.
I use Intervideo WinDVD.

I hope this helps.

My cmputer donot play dvd


Windows XP does not play DVD's by itself you need

1) a DVD ROM (or RW) drive, and
2) DVD playing software.

Usually the Drive, or your PC will come with something like PowerDVD or some program like that.

Windows Vista and newer will play DVD's natively.

No dics in tray for dvd windows xp pro player 9 need help will play cds had dvd working with avi ? once but i messed it up help


If the dvd is not being seen try cleaning very gently with a damp cotton bud the lens in the optical drive drawer. If it is seeing the files on a dvd but unable to play them you need software or codecs, try BS PLAYER which is available for free download.
