Wont play commercial dvds
\015 After a full reinstall of winxp home and converting from fat32 to ntfs on the 30g drive, I realised the fat 32 drive would not recognise dvd movie. I reinstalled from the Toshiba oem discs, I did full updates on miscrosoft update on custom setting. Installed codec pack and tried a dvd which wouldn't play in winmedia11. Tried inter-video dvd player but it would not install from oem discs. Then installed avs dvd player. Now plays copied discs but not commercial discs. In media player it shows all of the root menu but you cannot play the files. In avs dvd player the copied disc worked fine but your commercially available disc will not load up. All I hear is the dvd-rom/cdrw seeking. I have searched seemingly everywhere on this problem but have drawn a blank. Can you advise? Laptop otherwise is ok.\015
Should i assume that the drive work previouly with com dvd? my annlysis of this problem is that the dvdrom is not able to read the format the dvd is in. the format of the hard drive does not determine the ability to read or not read a dvd. that is the job of the optical disc.so dont worry about the format that is in.ok. the other aspect of the ability to read dvd is the software. windows media player and other that are of age has a inability to play some new format dvd. best bet install the newest version of power dvd put the disc and check should start automat pending setting you may need to go to my computer and double clickon the romdrive. let me know.
