Hi,

I thought this would be as good of a place as any to ask...

I've basically got a DVD (its region 2) that won't work in my laptop. Just for background knowledge its a Disney DVD (as I'm not sure if that makes much difference) Would anyone be able to help me out, or suggest why it won't work? When I put it in, it diplays the files AUDIO and VIDEO - but they don't have anything IN the files?

I only got my laptop last July, so its not as if its out of date.

Can anyone give any help?

Have you got a programme that will allow you to play dvds on your laptop?
Something like InterVideo Win dvd, thats what I use.

Also, what operating system have you got, out of interest?

Try downloading InterVideo Win dvd off the net, that will work a treat if you havent got it already.

If not, try Quicktime or Real players, they should work good.

Download a different media player then.

Look at this site http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...vice/0072.mspx.

If your laptop doesnt meet the requirements, it wont play dvds. Most people will not have a DVD decoder because it is not included by default hence why media player wont play dvds alot of the time.

I would download vlc player. Plays pratically everything

All the established computer nerds use VLC

It's kind of a sign of using the computer too much lol. The other signs are using Daemon Tools, CPUZ and knowing what Usenet is.
