If the you are facing issue in playing DVD movies then it could be due to DVD region code.


You need to check the DVD movie you playing is of which region then same to be set of DVD drive which  can be change from DVD drive properties accessing from device manager.


You may also try uninstalling the DVD drive driver from the device manager and then restart the system to get the fresh driver load.


Please share the status with us.

Hi Kedairs,


may try to play with the omnivorous  VLC media player  freeware, it does ignore DVD region coding...


Note: first time playing a DVD it takes VLC player some time to circumvent the DVD drive region code,

          best to test first with a known good machine to get the knack.
