Play DVD through LCD projector

By support ·
I have a new Toshiba laptop running Vista. When I load a DVD it plays just fine. As soon as I connect an LCD projector, it will not run the DVD. Any solutions for me?

somethings to look at

by shasca In reply to Play DVD through LCD proj ...

Video displayed in Windows Media Player or a
browser window will show up on my PC's LCD
but shows as a black box on my external s-video
device (TV/projector). The rest of the desktop will
show on the s-video device.

Windows Media Player and many other Media Players
may only display on the output chosen as the PRIMARY
device in the display properties (depending on the video
codec). If you see a video playing on your PC's LCD
screen but just a black box in the media window through
the s-video output, change the s-video output to PRIMARY
and your PC's LCD to secondary in the display properties

Make sure your 'extended view' is set to CLONE mode ...

Any other view mode for your extended display settings will bring about the problem you are experiencing - it would also happen with an external monitor.
