Dvd drive

Hi, my laptop is only reading the audio bit of the dvd and not the video, how can i fix it?
PS: My laptop is a VAIO SONY VGN-CR21Z/R

And as i have put in a reply, the problem is that it used to be able to read both bits, now it only reads the audio and using VLC won't help.

  1. it sounds like you need to download the codecs for it.Is it xvid-divx? if so, then install divx
  2. What OS? Windows XP, Vista HB (?and Pro?) don't have the necessary codecs with them.
  3. VGN-CR would have Vista by default
  4. Try to download and install this and try again :

  5. Try running the DVD using VLC media player..
