It plays and I hear on it.  It plays playlist to IPod ect.  But when I put in a disk to play on DVD nothing, no video, no sound, can you tell me what I doing wrong or checklist on playing a DVD it did at one time.  I hate to be a nuisance to you, but it seems things are just going wrong.  Thanks for your help.

Click on the Start orb and type devmgmt.msc, right click on it when it appears under Programs, choose Run as administrator.

 

Scroll down to DVD/CD-ROM drives and click on the clear diamond to expand the tree.  

 

Double click on your DVD/CD drive, then click on the Driver tab, then click on Uninstall.

 

Restart your computer.  The driver which was uninstalled will be replaced when the computer boots.

 

See if resolves the problem.

Download VLC Media Player and see if it works with it.

I tried to open directory and drive that the disc was in and it came back to this "Your input can't be opened:

VLC is unable to open the MRL 'directory:///E:/'. Check the log for details."  Next?

What kind of disc is this, movie,etc.?

 

Does this happen with all DVDs?

 

Is this a Blu-ray disc?
