When trying to play a computer generated DVD +R DL, I get a message that says this type of disc cannont be played. please insert a different disc


The disc is probably an incompatible format for this model player. Even if the disc is finalised in your PC, or in a DVD recorder, this player may still be unable to read it. Some DVD recorder/players do not recognise DVD+R (or +R DL) media, while others won't recognise +/-RW discs (except CD-RW); this is a model limitation - not a fault with either your player, the PC burning software or the discs themselves.

Nothing can be done to fix this except purchasing a model which accepts multimedia (+R/DVD-RAM etc). The question is, does your player play ANY normal DVDs? I am guessing your player will accept DVD-R DL discs just fine since this is standard as well as proper shop-bought movies.

Burnt DVDs will not play


It is possible that you're player will not play burned DVD's. If you have the manual...or even on the front panel of the player, it should say that it can play DVD-/+R, DVD-/+RW, or even DIVX.

Also, have you tried to play it in your PC to make sure it can play?

Hope this helps

Can`t get it to play dvds from the computer which are AVI.


the AVI discs are DIVX I am assuming.. Does your player support DIVX media? I am not sure what your model is, but I am thinking that your player will not support DIVX. If this is the case, you might need to burn new DVDs in the traditional VOB format that it can see. Check your owners manual to see about DIVX support.

thanks!

Dvds recorded on video to dvd recorder wont play elsewhere


Mosr DVD recorders have a "compatible" setting or require you to "finalise" the disc. Check that is being done.

It's also worth checking that the laptop will play other DVDs sometimes you need a codec.

LG HT762 DVD Player won't play divx anymore?


Try to unplug the player for a few seconds and then plug it back. It should work again with the DivX files. I had an identical problem and since then, it works just fine.

When trying to play DVDs the words unknown disc title appears. Even after several attempts with various DVDs we havent had any success.


have u tried cleaning the hea of ur dvd player?after using a dvd player or cd player for long times of continous play say 6 months or if u play too many scratched discs and u dont clean the head of the player it starts skipping the disc or many a times dosnt recognise the disc so it'll give u errors like "Unknown Disc", "Disk Error" etc so i would really recommend u to clean its head using a dvd head cleaner cd.. its easily available in the video stores or malls.. u can purchase any dvd head cleaner cuz there are number of manufatcures for this. im sure this would solve ur issue.
PLEASE DO RATE ME,WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT
THANX

DVD PLAYS CD'S BUT WONT PLAY DVD'S


Aquarius0128 there are two things to consider here.. dvd's recorded on a computer need to be closed/finalized after you have recorded onto them in order to be used on a stand alone player.. they will play ok on original recorder because of the design of these machines finalizing prepares the structure of the disc so it can be recognised by other players as a dvd video disc.. you will usually see a 'finalize disc' option in your recording program

Second issue is this.. even if finalized an older (or even some modern) stand alone players will not recognise a recorded disc made on a computer or even if it can there are different formats DVD+R DVD-R and even DVD-RAM and DVD-RW (the two latter ones are rarely recognised outside a computer)

Watching dvd


Your player has to be able to play divx formats. Not all players come with that option.
