Unable to run Mats_run.dvd.exe on Vista 32-bit Operating System RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a problem with the DVD-RW drive. It suddenly stopped playing DVDs and will play only audio CDs.  I tried to run Microsoft Fix-it.

  • Hi amxmp1,

    Thanks for your response. The imformation you pasted is a information level event log, and it is not related to Fix it. Could you please paste some warning or error level event logs about this issue(Fix it). You can run the troubleshooter Mats_Run.dvd.exe, when you recieved some error message, then open Event View to find the error or warning logs and paste it to me.

  • I've just found this thread after trying to troubleshoot Vista Home Premium not recognising CD disc in either internal CD-RW drive or external CD-RW drive.   Both drives are seen in Computer >> Devices with Removable Storage.   Following an app crash I can only work in Vista safe mode + networking trying to burn a recovery disk.   But I have neither read or write to any fresh disk inserted in either drive.

    CD Drive (E)   and CD Drive (F:) .. external via USB.

    I read the advice here

    and then linked to Vista  troubleshooting here ..

    When I try to run Microsoft Fixit download .. Mats_Run.dvd.exe
    I get this error message ..

    "Fix It troubleshooting cannot continue because an error occurred
    This troubleshooter does not apply to this computer".

    Why doesn't Mats_Run.dvd.exe run on Vista in safe mode with admin rights?

    What are the instructions to manually troubleshoot Vista CD disks not being recognised or reading files or burning a recovery disk?

  • Hi dragonfly41,

    Thanks for your interesting in Microsoft Fix it Center(Beta).

    It is a limitation that the troubleshooter does not support running under Safe Mode. We will look into improving the functionality in future versions. Thanks for your understanding!

    Best Regards,
