This is the unfortunate thing with copying DVD's. Unfortunately when a DVD is copied only certail players will play it back. I can burn a disk on my laptop and it will play fine in the laptop and on my Sony DVD player, but my Samsung will not read it. This is why when you burn DVD's it's important to find a brand that is read by numerous DVD players. Try using the Sony disks.

Hope this helps.

I have Magnavox DVD player/vcr DV225MG9, does it record from vhs onto dvds? And if not, what do I need to get so that I can copy all of these old vhs movies to dvds?


it won't record dvd's its only a dvd player. only the vcr records
if the vhs movies your trying to record are movies like star wars and stuff like that it's copy protected and no worth the trouble. if it's home movies or something you recorded from tv they might work. if you get a dvd recorder/vhs player.

Trying to copy vcr tapes onto a dvd and it will not let me...says protected? how?


If the tapes are commercial type movies being bought at a store some time ago, the system will detect it as copy right protected and will not let you make a copy. I've had the problem in the past many times, but if the tape is a home made movie taken with a video camera, it should let you copy it. Some video to pc software does this even with homemade video movies, very frustrating and annoying some times.

Hi! I have a TruTech PVS-12701 Portable DVD and I was wondering if it can play movies from CDs as well. What movie formats does it support? I have old movies on VCD that I want to watch it says that it is...


Hi biorgs .


It seems that your DVD player does not support anything else but a DVD.

What you can do is copy the video files from the VCDs to your computer's hard disk and burn them in a DVD so that it can read them , that would be a good idea to make use of your dvd player to view your VCDs in them.

You can use a dvd burning software if you have a dvd writer in your pc for this purpose.

To download a trial version of such a software called nero you can click on the below link and follow instructions further.

My JVC DVD player sometime does not read a DVD disk that was played in it before in it or it has just played?? this is driving me nuts!!!! an ideas... pls...


It's an anticopy feature. JVC extensively uses sony electronics. And Sony is the anti copy king of retardedness. I've permanently stopped purchasing sony products for this reason. From dvd players, to video game consoles, and their records and movies (columbia). I've been doing this for 10 years and haven't really missed anything :/

I get "cannot play disc" command with purchased dvd movies on home dvd player altho they play on pc. This problem just started i was able to play any dvd on home unit before


Try using an iris cleaner on the unit. It is a disk with a brush grafted onto it. Put it in and run for 6 seconds or so and the laser eye will be cleaned. That should correct the problem. Many hired DVD''s have greasy finger marks on them and it is transgferred to the iris, eventually causing it not to be able to play the disk

Dvd player only plays some movies


it might be sevral reasons:
1. Check if region code is the same for movies you playing and DVD player
2. If you using video CDs or copyed DVDs, player might be preventing to playback those kind of discs, due to copyright laws or due to different speed settings for DVD player and discks you using (for intsrance you player can playback DVD/CD+R, and you using DVD/CD-R, or mximum allowed playback speed is 16 you using disk recorded at 24, but this is in case you using burned/copied CD/DVDs)
3. Check it lens is durty. For that use CD/DVD lens cleaning disk
($6 in Walmart, if you are in US)
4. Check if movies you are have the same coloring system, i.e NTSC for US
5. Check CD/DVD for scratches, some DVD players can not playback scratched disks
Please kindly let me know if my information was helpfull for you or you need more info
Good Luck

My Sanyo DWM-400 plays some DVD's and won't play others.


I bought another DVD player. I found out that all DVD's don't play on all DVD brands of players. They are cheap enough these days so I decided it wasn't worth a repair bill. The Sanyo DWM-400 plays many of my store bought DVD's and not others. I never tried a home made DVD in it so I don't know how it responds.
