every time i try to play a DVD on my computer, the programs crash on me.... programs like Realplayer, PowerDVD, InterActual Player, Windows Media... and i was able to play DVDs a few weeks ago... does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can fix this?
Sounds like your dvd drive has been locked to a diifirent area for diffirent dvd playback. open your driver's properties. make sure no disk is in as you'll open the disk properties instead. go to dvd-region tab. i believe that yours is locked. find what region is locked to. the dvd's of that region you can play normally. to unlock it ur looking for firmware update of the drive, good luck!!
hey if its a problem witht the region encoding you should be able to change that from the device manager -select your dvd drive right click properties and region encoding.however i think this is because of the drivers,.dll files etc. that came with the dvd drive like power dvd ,reinstall it and it should be fine.
