Go to “My Computer” and see if your laptop see’s the disc in it. Does it read cd’s? It could be a software problem. It could also be a region problem. Provide some more details, and there are alot of people that know more than I do, and I am sure you will get a response. Good Luck.

Try system restore if using windows to a date when it last worked. Obviously your choices are a bit limited out there

Please, give us more details and we will help.
What software do you use for playing DVDs?
What is the region of your DVD-ROM and of the DVDs you try to play?
What is the error message?
What happens when you insert the Disc and try to play?
