Sony Computers & Internet - Answered Questions & Fixed Issues


Try some factory CD and DVDs and just try to get them to open in Windows (not play in a media player program). If you get errors on every disc you try, it may be your CD/DVD hardware packing in.

If it reads some CDs or DVDs and not others, particularly media discs, you may be having software driver problems, otherwise, it is likely hardware.

Try inserting the disc and spinning it up while resting the laptop on its side, or even upside down. If it reads sideways or upside down, the CD/DVD reader hardware has gone and cannot probably be prepared (this is a symptom of physical controller failure and is ot fixable by normal means).

Good luck...

ALL CD's or just one CD? Depends on the file format and the Media Player. Have you tried another Media Player? Does the CD work in another Computer? Did you make the CD? What is the Media on the CD?

Hi there,
I would like to suggest that you attempt to download & install the codecs that your media player requires, before it will play a DVD.
I found this typical when I was using the Vista operating system with Windows Media Player 11.
The codecs can be found as freeware online & a good site for the apt codecs for WMP 11 is @ www.majorgeeks.com once you are on the site, click multimedia on the left of the page, then scroll down to the codecs required.
The K-Lite series of codecs seem to work well with WMP 11 on Vista.
I truly hope that this has resolved your problem, as there is nothing better than watching a fine movie on the old PC.
Failing my advice, you could always 'Rip' the said movie to your media player & view it from your hard drive.
Good luck anyway.
Warmest regards,
Ste

With Windows XP and above and most DVD players today users do have the option to change their DVD region scheme a few times (often no more than four times). To adjust the region in Windows follow the below steps.

  1. Click Start, Settings, and open Control Panel
  2. Double-click the System icon.
  3. In the System Properties click the Hardware tab.
  4. In Hardware click the Device Manager button.
  5. In Device Manager click the "+" symbol next to the DVD/CD-ROM drives icon.
  6. This should expand and display each of the drives installed in your computer. Double-click the DVD drive you wish to change the region for.
  7. In the Properties window click the DVD Region tab.
  8. Within this window you should be able to change your region code and also be able to see how many changes remaining you have on the drive.

You'll need a decoder from a program like cyber dvd or win dvd. Nero also has one and sonic too. If the drive came with a dvd player program install it. You can also find them through windows media player at microsoft's website but they will cost a few bucks. Search the internet for dvd player software you may find one for free. I hope this helps you. If you are like me you might have a program in your pile of software cds'.
