If what you mean is that DVDs don't start automatically anymore and you have to start them manually, it's probably the "Autoplay" that is disabled.

To enable it, check the "Method 1" here : http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/27544-autoplay-enable-disable-autorun.html

You may restart your computer for this change to take effect.

Thanks.

 

They will not start automatically or when I insert the DVD, open the player and try to do it manually.

 

Might first thought was something needed to be cleaned as well, but hell, after only 6 months?

I share your pain (Toshiba Satellite + Vista Home Premium): player will not open/read DVDs [genuine, no regional codes involved], VCDs or text/picture/data CDs. Nor can I write/copy anything to disk (thumb drives can, external hard drive can). Disks whirr, but nothing happens. Tried all the on-board diagnostics and a few off the net, but no success.

 

Toshiba service centre in BKK next week, I fear (but their service is great).

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
