After performing a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium, then downloading the necessary drivers from the Toshiba support website there are issues with the DVD player in my laptop.
I downloaded the Toshiba DVD Player application, which auto detects which version you need. After allowing the application to run, I get the message "No Toshiba DVD installation could be found! You can only update an already installed version."
How do I get the DVD player to be recognised, so the application will install. Currently the DVD player will not play DVDs - which will be an issue for my daughter who is using the laptop.
Also, the Windows 7 driver page mentions updates will be available through Toshiba Service Station, but provides no link. A search of the Toshiba website fails to locate it, where do I get this utility from?
I agree with Mike30. As you can see on Toshiba website, it’s just an update but no full version. Full version of DVD player is only preinstalled on your notebook and included in Toshiba recovery disk.
But in my opinion you don’t need additional DVD player software. It’s a little useless but that’s my personal opinion…
I prefer the “allround” tool VLC media player because it can play all known audio and video files. It’s small and freeware player and I can recommend it.
Have a look on VLC media player page: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
