Re: can't watch a DVD


Ervin, Glenn
 

Is it possible that you have it in upside down?

DVDs often have a ridge (ring around the hole) on both sides of the DVD.

Usually by default, unless it’s disabled, it will start playing in media player when you insert the DVD.

I usually disable this.

I use VLC media player most of the time.

Although I’m not sure the “open with” method actually works in this case. I will have to test it. I usually access through the media menu in VLC.

 

Try Media Player first I suppose, since you probably already have that. I never use that programme but I admit VLC can present a bit of a challenge for first-time users.

Hi, everyone,

 

I know I have a CD DVD drive on this computer but I can't watch a documentary my sister gave me for my birthday. Is there something I might not be doing right? I don't want to have to tell my sister that I can't watch the documentry. It's supposed to be a really good documentary about the life of Janis Joplin.

 

Thanks for any help you can give in advance.

 

Rosemarie
