Hi, I would like to know how to play DVDs on a emachines? I put the DVD in and nothing happens.
Is the drive actually a dvd drive and not just a cd drive? Are you using Windows XP?
Is this a data dvd or a movie?
If you are running XP, and have a dvd drive, you need software to play a dvd movie. I suggest downloading a free media player called VLC.
It can play dvd video for you.
Edit: I was too late.
In addition to the above posts, you may not have “autoplay” enabled (which is probably good).
