It's probably not your computer... it's your disc drive. The computer can read it, but the disc drive's laser can't. I recommend that you spend $30 on Amazon or Ebay and buy a replacement. They are pretty easy to install. You can't go wrong with Asus brand drives. Good luck!!

I burnt a video recording onto a fujifilm DVD-R disc but haven't been able to play it back on my computer or DVD player, any suggestions?


This error is due to improper recording of data on to the DVD. Try getting a new blank DVD and and re-burn the data. If the problem still exists, then try giving the DVD writer to the near by computer technician for support and replace the DVD writer. Thank You.

Have a Compaq Computer. My tower has two places wherein discs can be inserted for various reasons. - Can you tell me which insertion site i.e., top or bottom that will enable playing a CD - commercial...


Probably both will play a cd but sure that one will only record a DVD -/+ or a CD and the DVD recorder will play DVD's. If the CD player is a DVD player it will play DVD's and CD's but not record.

Dvd has video no sound, have sound on cd


First: Does this happen with all the DVD's or just one?
If all, do you have system sounds?
If not, check your sound drivers--reinstall if you have to.
If you have system sounds and no DVD sounds, you could have one of two problems:
You are using a DVD recorded on another machine in a different format than your computer likes. (for instance, you are trying to play a DVD that was recorded on a DVD+R instead of a DVD-R. These two DVD's are different and the DVD+R doesn't play well across systems.
You could have a defective DVD player and you'll need to replace it. I would suspect this if no DVD plays correctly.
You could also check the DVD program you are using.

Cd wr playes on the computer but wont play on the car sterio it was recorded the same as an ordinary cd r


Check the file extentions. It is possible it was recorded in the wrong format. Some car stereos wont play certain file formats. Also be sure you used a cdr and not a cdrw.
