Hi shahu,

to play DVDs, you need to have Media Player prepared for it, not only the hardware drivers. Install a DVD player (as Power DVD, for example) and that's it.

If your any dvd is not working that mean there would be
most common problem with following thing

1) Try to reinstall your operating system to recover your DVD driver files.

2) change the data cable of the DVD becouse if cable got fault it won't work(data cable on end is connected to dvd and other -to mother board )

3)if still problem is there then you have to change your DVD's Lense.

I have a SD M1502 DVD-ROM drive. it can read CD's just fine, but it can only read SOME DVDs. example: im watching an anime series, store bought, but when i get to Disc 4 the drive cant read it. the DVDs...


There are a couple of things to look at: First of all does your computer have software to read copy-
protected DVD's. Second if this anime set of DVD's is imported from Japan it might not be compatible with players from the US. If you look on the Internet you can find patches for your DVD player software to read foreign DVD's. Check out VLC and libdvdcss.

After I reinstalled my pc, the toshiba dvd-rom (sd-c2502) only plays cds, not dvds.


Try re-installing your the driver for your dvd rom. Then try to put different dvds and check if it can read from your drive. If problem remains, I suspected it's your dvd rom is faulty

Toshiba satellite a65-s1762 dvd-ram drive problems


Take the laptop *and* your DVDs/CDs to a qualified technician.
It seems like the drive is "intermittently" failing, and needs to be replaced.

My dvd drive in my computer won't play dvds


1. Completely remove any dvd/cd player/burner softwares (i.e. Nero, Power DVD, etc.).
2. Go to device manager and remove your DVD/CD device from the device list
3. Restart you laptop
4. Windows will then try to reinstall the device drivers again for the DVD drive.
5. After another restart, then reinstall your dvd softwares again.

DVD rom drive


It sounds like the drive itself is faulty. Since you've reformatted, it obviously isn't a software problem. CDs and DVDs are read by two different lasers so its not uncommon for one disc not to be read yet the other is just fine which seems to be the case. A new one can be purchased for under $40. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010100005+1036508690&name=Slim+Combo+Drive
