Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook ?

DVD player My Dell inspiron will play audio cd's and the computer automatically recognises there is a cd in the drive. With DVD's it's as though they don't exist and when i open Windows media centre, windows media player quicktime or any other DVD playing programme it just asks me to insert a disc. What's going on? please help, im a poor student and i need to watch scrubs!

Answers :

Could be upper or lower filter. try filtercheck 4.6 to remove them.
