The DVD player function on most PCs will not work unless you have the correct codec.

If you want to play movies... I suggest you download a trail of POWERDVD or WINDVD

Use google.com to find the download. It will install the proper software needed.

for AVI files and the like.... use VLC media player. It is free.


Good LUCK!

CDS BURN BUT CANNOT PLAY WHY?


You mean, you burn the CD in your PC but you can't play it in external CD player ?
Maybe you didn't burned it in "movie" mode, just burned in "data" mode. As you know, CD player can't play .avi or .mkv or other video formats. They only can play movie in .DAT format, and when you burn in "make a movie" mode, the burner will convert your movie to this format so you can re-open your movie via CD player.
Or there is an error during the burning time, if this happen then you have to re-burn your movie into another CD.

Hope this help and be kind to rate this answer.

Burning movies


Yes. Many burning apps (such as Nero) support the creation of Video-CDs, and most current DVD players support playing these Video-CDs.

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

I have a Canon A540 digital camera . we can copy video clips to DVD and this can be played onto my notebook BUT we cannot play these clips through the DVD recorder onto the TV. Can you please...


Hi, DVD players can only play DVD Standard format and some standard codec (divx,...), so if you want to play your clip in a DVD player you must convert them to the standard format... an easy way is useing nero express:  nero express > video > DVD, then add yor clips, make a nice menu and then burn it on DVD. Also you can use Nero vision for better menus or Ulead DVD movie factory for even better Menu if you can spend money. ;) I hope this helps.

First check sound settings on control panel, ensure volume is not at minimum and computer audio is not muted. Test playing a CD.

this is usually due to Media Player or whatever player you use on your pc, not having the right codecs to decompress sound from camera file.

Usually you sort it out upgrading media player, you can download update from links below.


  1. Windows Media Player 10
  2. Cumulative update for Windows Media Player 11 in Windows Vista

Dvd player


You might be able to convert them to DVD-Video format if you've got a DVD burner and the right software.

Another possible option would be converting them to a Video CD/Super Video CD if the DVD player can play Video CDs or Super Video CDs and you have a CD burner and software that can burn VCDs/SVCDs

You need to convert the .avi files to the MPEG format with software. Just renaming the file will not work.
