First thing you may want to check is to see if your disks play automatically. go to settings>system settings>disc auto start (its about mid way down). make sure that is marked "ON" If its not just press "X" on disc auto start and you should have option to turn it "OFF" and "ON". with that set every time you put in a disc it should auto start.
if that doesn't start automatically the title of your BD should be under VIDEO and it should be the one on the bottom. if it doesn't show up there you should check to make sure the disk is able to be read. try it with another DVD/BD if those show up and your first disk don't than you know you have a faulty disk. hope this helps

My ps3 plays games but will not play blu ray movie


You can try clear your movie data from the discs you\'ve played (according to Fox that\'s sometimes the culprit when a disc won\'t even load): restart your PS3 and go to the video menu and scroll up to the BluRay Data section. Go into it and check that it has saved some info for your movies. Now deleted all the data in this folder except the shared data crap, and hopefully your movies start perfectly!!



If that fails try the following:

In the XMB(menus) go to Settings ---> BD/DVD Settings ---> BD 1080p 24 Hz Output (HDMI). Turn that off. This has also been known to work.

I have dell inspiron 6000 my combo drive is not recognizing dvd format movies although it is supporting cd formate


Hi Fazi1814,

If you're issue is that the dvd drive could not read the cd at all then you might want to try deleting upper and lower filters from registry editor. This files from windows sometimes cause an issue to your drive/
Here are the steps on how to locate and delete them:

1. Open Registry Editor - go to Start then type regedit on start search box then enter
If you get any notification just click continue
2. Once window is open, Look for the following subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10
To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
3. On the right pane, select upper and lower filter, right click then delete.
4. Click Yes when prompted
5. Exit registry editor and restart the computer

If your issue is that the drive reads the disk but it does not play the movie. This could be an issue with the movie format. Not all movie format can be played by the windows media player. In this case you need to have either of the following: (but I suggest you get both)

1. K-Lite Codec Pack 7.10 (Full) (to be able to read almost all types of movie and music format)
2. VLC Media Player 1.1.8 (can read any kind of format without installing any codec but still recommended to have codecs installed)

You can try downloading this two software from www.filehippo.com.

Hope this works!

Thank you for using Fixya,

My new 3.15 ps3 won't play blu-ray but will play everything else no problem. no problems to play games or to play normal dvd's. When playing a blu-ray the UNIVERSAL part at the start of the movie plays...


f the Blu-ray Disc does not support 1080p 24Hz video mode, the video output may not display properly.

If a Blu-ray Disc movie is not loading properly or is freezing on a title screen, this may be caused by the PLAYSTATION 3 attempting to download BD-Live content from congested movie studio servers. If you experience this issue, you may choose to temporarily bypass the BD-Live content until the congestion at the movie studio servers has cleared.

Go to Settings icon (Settings) > Video Settings icon (Video Settings) > [BD Internet Connection], select "Confirm". Then reload the Blu-ray movie and the PLAYSTATION 3 will prompt you if you wish to allow the disc to access BD-Live content. Choose to not access BD-Live content to see if the movie will now load.
For some reason you seem to think this is a PS3 problem. Why do you think this is a PS3 problem? If you can play PS3 games, then I will say it is not a PS3 problem, as all PS3 games are on Blu-ray, and if you were having problems playing PS3 games, then that could account for the movie not working.

Since only the movie isn't working, I am going to say you have a defective Blu-ray disc. Did you just buy this movie, or have you viewed it before using the PS3? If you have never viewed it on the PS3, then the problem lies in the disc, and you need to take it back and have it exchanged.

If you have played the disc in the PS3 before (the PS3 you are having a problem with, not a different PS3 or Blu-ray player), or you still think it is a PS3 problem, then use the "Disc Troubleshooting" support page. Normally, if a Blu-ray movie will not play, it won't play at all, and it is because the Blu-ray laser has gone out. It sounds to me that the disc is bad, but this is only going on the information you have supplied.

Here is the Disc Troubleshooting support page mentioned above:http://playstation.custhelp.com/app/answ…

**EDIT**
Sorry, I just noticed you gave a UK link. Here is the support page for the UK. You will have to do a search on the site to find the Disc Troubleshooting page for your region.http://uk.playstation.com/support/

I get this error when I try to play a DVD on my laptop using WDVD


I assume that you are using a TV with the Computer to watch a Blu-Ray disc using HDMI connection.

In order to play a Blu-ray Disc (BD) movie on a television, the display configuration must be set to display on the television only. Having the image set to display on the computer and the television at the same time will generate the above STOP error message "Your display environment does not support protected content playback message".

Follow this procedure to properly configure the settings
needed to play a Blu-ray Disc (BD) movie on a television.

1. Connect the Computer to the TV using an HDMI cable.

2. On the Computer, click the Start -> Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Adjust screen resolution.

3. In the Display Settings window, click the Advanced Settings button -> Intel Graphics Media Accelerator tab -> Graphics Properties button.

4. In the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator window, under Operating Mode, click the down arrow and then click to select Single Display.

5. Under Primary Device click the down arrow and then click to select Digital Television, and then OK.

6. At the Confirm the Desktop Change prompt, click the OK.

7. In the Advanced Settings window, click the OK button.

8. In the Display Settings window, click the OK button.

9. In the Control Panel window, click Hardware and Sound.

10. In the Hardware and Sound window, under Sound, click Manage audio devices.

11.In the Sound window, click to select HDMI Device, and then click the Set Default button.

12. In the Sound window, click the OK button.

13. Now close the Control Panel window.


NOTE: Also check for any update for the software you are using to play the videos and update for the Video Driver

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!

Plays ps2 games but doesnt plays ps3 games or dvds


please verify:
  • your dvd disc region (must be region free or 1 - for USA)
about ps3 games try:
  • restoring your system
  • reinstalling all game data files
  • re-updating your system
  • playing blu-ray MOVIES disc, to check a possible problem with your reader .
if the bd movie doesn't work, you have got a possible problem with your bd reader .
then, take it to an assistance center for hardware repair .

Downloading Movie Files


Movie or video files on the Delstar DS802 need to be in the AMV format.
Look for the MP3 Player Utilities 4.07 that came on the install CD or you can get a converter at:
http://www.mympxplayer.org/
On the left side of screen look for downloads
Tools
under CATEGORY look for mp3 utilities or AMV converter
http://www.mympxplayer.org/mp3-player-utilities-dc44.html

Tech support recommend that I use a 4.0 or 4.03 version (Note that the MP3 Player Utilities 5.09 did not convert correctly for me)

However, as noted above, the MP3 Player Utilities 4.07 came on the install CD. It worked for me. Convert the file, drag and drop the converted file to the DS802, unplug the USB, select Movie, click initialize button on the side and play!
