Answer to: My DVD player isn't reading DVDs?It sounds like the laptop is not reading DVDs. There are a couple things you can do to fix this issue: (1) There are CD/DVD cleaning tools available. If the disc works in other players but not in the laptop, you can get a cleaning disc for the CD/DVD drive. This disc will attempt to clean the optical laser inside the drive. (2) If number 1 above does not work, you can replace the DVD drive. Refer to this page for additional troubleshooting information: HP G62-223CL Troubleshooting.
