That's true you can see movie in your computer if that is already installed in your computer. But when you put a dvd or cd in your driver it does not work, means that your dvd/cd driver is not working, maybe a miss align so its not working, have it check with a technician.
Thanks

What fix to apply to HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GWA4164B in Dell Dimension E310 so it can read/play a dvd movie?


Try the following:

1. Go to the Dell.com support site and be sure you have the latest updates for your computer's operating system and the DVD drive, especially the DVD drive's drivers BIOS.

2. Make sure you have the software to play the movie, like Sonic, Windows Media Player, Power DVD, Quicktime, etc. and be sure they are the latest versions.

3. Depending on the movie format, not all DVD drives will play all DVDs. The most common discs are DVD-R and DVD+R and file types like *.avi, *.mpeg, *.mp4, *.mov and then commercial formats. Also try the movie in another machine or DVD player and see what happens.

I have an HP pavilion slimline s3600f desktop pc and the optical disk drive doesn't seem to be reading cd's or DVD's.


Check the Device Manager to make sure that the OS does not have any issues with the device. If there is an exclamation point ( ! ), then Windows has issue with it. If there is an " ! " then right-click on the device and select update driver.

If the drive shows in My Computer, right-click on the drive and select "eject" from the list. This will verify that the OS is talking to the device.

Check your BIOS settings to make sure that it appears in the BIOS and is not disabled.

Also, Microsoft recently released an update to disable Auto-Play on CD/DVD drives. If Auto-Play isn't working (due to this update), then put a music/movie cd/dvd into the drive and open Windows Media player and try to play the disc through there.

The drive may not be "broken" it just may be that auto-play has been turned off by Microsoft.

I have a Systemax Venture Microsoft Windows XP Pro Version 2002 Service Pack 3. The system will not longer play dvd's or cd's and cannot burn cd's as well. I'm not sure if something has...


Well the fact that when you put in a cd it does not see it indicates that either the CD Drive is not being detected or the drive has gone faulty and needs replacing.
First Look in the bios of the computer to see if it is seen the drives section. If it is there then look in windows under control panel , system, device manager. Now look under DVD/CD Roms drives (this may differ slightly in XP) to see if in there with no error against it. If not and not in the bios either then the drive has failed. If however it shows in DVD/CD Roms with no error then try a different make of cd/DVD. If this works then the Bios of the drive will need updating. This info is on the manufacturers website. Good luck.

I have lg dvd r/w in my P3 System but I am facing three problems. 1) Dvd is not playing the movies normally, that is movie is coming in a breaking manner. 2) whenever I am trying to do something to that...


It sounds to me like your computer system is not up to the task of watching DVD movies. It is a P3 and as your computer plays movies in a breaking manner it shows that the graphics performance is very low. In fact the overall system performance in very low.

The solution is to save up for a faster PC that you can afford, It doesn't need to be new it can be second hand, it must just be able to do what you require it to do.

A cheaper solution is to find and install a compatable Graphics Card for your computer, this will increase the overall performance of your computer.

I am deeply sorry for this sad information.
Wishing you all the best!

I can burn movies onto my pc & make a cd ,they don't work


it's because you are using cd to burn the movies on to and not dvd. your dvd will only read movies from dvd. I know it seems like if you put movies on a cd it should read in a dvd player, but since its not on dvd disk, then it will not play.

I cant get movies I made on msn movie maker to download on to the light scribe cd. Also the pictures cd's wont play on an independent machine, only on the computer.


Maybe you'll need a cd/dvd burner like Nero 9 or maybe the Nero 7 would do...
that's the best application for burning movies you make... and slide show pictures...
be also aware of the formats you used in saving your work in msn movie maker.... use (.avi) in save as type:


i hoped it helped you tnx...

Bluray disc doesn't work in my computer vaiovgc-lt25e


Hi carlos,
The reason for this is that Bluray is a different file type than DVD.  That means that a DVD player can only handle certain file types of which Bluray is not one of them.  The drive you are using is a DVD drive.
Unfortunately the only way to play a Bluray disc is with a Bluray drive.  These can be purchased at any computer or electronics store and are becoming quite competitive in price.  That or you can return the movie and buy a DVD or CD version of the disk.
Hope that helps, and please don't forget to vote/rate!
