The DVD drive on my Fujitsu Lifebook AH532 has just recently stopped playing (shop bought) DVD’s (The same DVD’s that it played fine earlier this year). It still plays audio CD’s ok.
VLC spins the DVD drive, and picks up the duration of the film, but won’t play it.
Cyberlink Mediasuite10 (which came pre-installed) lists the title of the film but wont play it.
Windows explorer has no trouble seeing the disc and all the contents.
Seeing that the programmes can still access the drive and play CD’s and they used to play DVD’s, I am assuming that the drive itself is on the way out.
The drive is a MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ8C0, but I can’t find any as a replacement.
Does anyone know if there are any other drives that would be a suitable fit, or have any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance for your time.
