When I try to play a DVD, it will start up when I first insert it as I've set it to autoplay. If I close it out and try to reopen it, I get a message "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel."

This is a DVD that I've kept in the tray before and just opened it when I wanted to use it. Now I have to eject and push it in each time I want to play it. Oddly the same thing is happening on my laptop that I just opened on Saturday for the first time in 4 months.

My desktop runs VISTA Home Premium 32X and my Laptop runs Windows 7 Home Premium 64X. I've tried restoring to June 12th, but that didn't help. Any help would be appreciated.

This isn't clear, are you trying to use the same disc on both computers with the same results?

 

Is the disc in good shape?

 

One thing to try would be to uninstall the driver for the CD/DVD-ROM in the Device Manager.  When you restart the computer a new driver will be installed.

Initially I was trying to play the same DVD on both computers, but did try other DVDs just to see and it still does the same thing with whatever DVD I put in. Yes, all the disks are relatively new. I will try to uninstall the driver and reinstall it and see what that does.

I don't know how to determine the extension the DVD has. How do I find this information? I've clicked on everything on the screen and can't find it. The computer is set up to open a DVD in Windows Media Player. I did find under "Options" "Player Settings" "Start the mini Player for file names that contain this test:" and "voiceatt.wav" is typed in the box. Don't know if that helps.
