Dvd player cannot be launched?

\015 All of a sudden the dvd player on my Toshiba L300 laptop has stopped working. It keeps saying that it has been launched by another user. I have no idea what this means. I've only had it 4 months and the player was working fine until a couple of days ago.\015

Answers :

Thank you for your request.

There are a couple of possible solutions.If the first does not work, try the next, and ultimately you can call customer service for Toshiba or the company you bought the system from.

First I would try to restart the system.

Second uninstall and reinstall software.

Third Check drivers and other software relating to the dvd player, or disc drives.

Forth to call customer service, there could be more complicated software issues or hardware issues at this point.
