i have built in cd/dvd combi ( TOSHIBA DVD-ROM SD-M1212) that came with my now 3 yr old p3 450mhz w98 pc. until now i have never tried out the dvd player and now i found the the film does not play. i have no clue what i have to do to watch the film. it says dvd-rom on the device so does it mean it is read only and not suitable for films? do i need to download software like power dvd? please advise.
thanks for the quick response. i thought the software required to play dvd, considering a dvd player came with the pc, would have been pre-loaded. if it is how do i find it and if not where do i go to download it?
It will proberly be on your start/programes menu if it is power dvd will be in a folder named cyberlink, as its a toshiba i am pretty certain it will be power dvd, if not on the comp look on the reastore discs etc,
I did as you said but did not find cyberlink in programs. i entered 'dvd' in find files on my computer and double clicked on one of the flies that took me windows 98 help. it said to play the dvd i must go to start,program,accessories then dvd. i got to the accessories and dvd was not listed in the drop down menu. does this mean that the dvd device is not recognised? second: if i have to download a software, which one should i go for and where? VoG™ thanks for your link, is it good?
