...I am not able to play movies, not sure if I need a driver or something else, a movie is inside but it says that can not play, media not found...I don`t even know if there is a way to check it for errors or problems...Any help is really appreciated!

What is it? Is it a DVD, CD, Floppy? Is it commercial or burnt?

Acid_1,

Shame on you. Your ESP is malfunctioning today. :-)

Lol sorry. I guess that could come across as rude. Not as I intended (I was eating. Yum). Anyhow, what kind of media is it? Is it a DVD, CD, a floppy disk, or USB key? And if it's a DVD or CD, did you burn it or was it purchased? Those are some things that we need to know in order to solve your dilemma.

Again, sorry if that came across as rude.

Actually what you want to know?
I think you are confused to set up your computer hardware. If you don't know which is dvd and cd or hard drive, then you can check out that all on particular parts. All names written on parts.
