I have a sony   model VPCJ111FX. MY CD/DVD RW combo plays cd's  but when it comes to playing dvd's some will play others will not. It is set to US regaion 1. It's a Optiarc dvd RW model AD-7700H. I checked for updates none found I just got a dvd for a breathing machine for my asthma and the dvd will not play. But I can put in my sons cartoon dvd it plays just fine.

 

Any help is in advance

Try changing regional settings for the optical drive http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc757394%28v=ws.10%29.aspx

There has to be something up or todo. I tried to find firmware update at optiarc.com but I didn't see mine listed. I uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it. Ill do some  checking out on Microsoft because that's where the update came from for it.

Well, can you explore or open the DVD contents atleast? Maybe making a single copy on your hard drive or USB flash would be less hassle :)

If the current drive is still not able to copy or rip the contents, try a different working computer. It can be converted to different formats using some popular free video converters such as Any Video Converter. You can then play it on different media players like VLC or WMP. There are also free ripping softwares and tutorials available online http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/rip-dvd-movie.htm
