Having problems with your Dell Latitude E5400 Notebook ?

Latitude e5400 doesnt want to play dvds. I insert the dvd, the autoplay reads the disk fine but when you select windows media player or powerdvd to play the dvd windows media player will open and then immediately close, power dvd doesnt even open. I installed a new video driver from dell.com but still doing the same thing. going to try a new program to watch the dvd but not sure if there could be something else wrong.


Answers :

Hello,

Please try to update your codec in your Windows Media Player to ensure that the Windows Media Player will read the data in the Disk. Also you can download different types of player that has bundled with complete codec. Please try to download K-Lite Codec Pack Player or VLC Player.

Please select the version of your player that supports your current operating system. Then Begin to download nyh clicking the download link or button.

thanks
