Hi, i have has this laptop for about 6 months now and have never needed to use the dvd player before. It is not recognising my disc at all. Can anyone tell me if this does have a dvd player or does anyone know any reasons why it is not working!Thanx!

Does it say DVD Rewriter on the faceplate! Then, yes.
What is "my disc"!


trinoxy, Nov 5, 12:01am
It says dvd rewriteable. On the part where you put the disc in. Just a normal dvd (my disc).

r.g.nixon, Nov 5, 12:18am
A normal DVD! Need more info.

trinoxy, Nov 5, 12:20am
yes, one from the video shop

just tried one i have brought.nothing comes up on the screen when i load it!

trinoxy, Nov 5, 1:32am
I just put the disc in, for the type of software to come up on the screen. For me to decide how to play it! Nothing comes up.am i doing something wrong!

See if the disc appears in Windows Explorer. Then double-click it. Or start up your preferred player(WMP, VLC, etc) and do File > Open.

Thank you so much.it seems to have worked!Could you tell me what the problem would of been!

drcspy, Nov 7, 4:09am
google 'upper and lower filters' windows cd dvd .i'ts a common problem it's an error in the registry (and DON'T go near any 'registry repair' programs)

I await your cheque in the mail.

I wondered about that, but thought that caused a Code 39 error message. Obviously it varies then.
