Will not play dvd video

I recently installed a Samsung SH-S182M writemaster lightscribe driver on my computer. It seems that from that point, I have used that burner to convert movie titles which will play back on the computer and additional Cheap players in the household. However, when I insert the same dvd in the E85H, I get zippo.....nada..and yes the region code is set to 1 on the media burner. I have checked all settings and I think everything is right where they are supposed to be. I flip from HDD to DVD and get the audio format screen, but , it doesn't recognize the dvd..OK, i'm done any help out there will certainly be appreciated, either here or my email address, again thanks for ya'lla time...

Re: Will not play dvd video

I have a Samsung DVD writer model SE-S184. At one time, it worked fine. Then, for some unknown reason, it stopped playing my DVDs. Can anyone help me with a solution.

DVD TSST Corp CD/DVDW TS-H552B. Computer crash using DVD+R

I tried using a blank DVD+R 16X and as soon as I closed the DVD drawer the computer crashed. No warning, no blue screen just straight to a restart. If I left the DVD in it cycled through back to a restart.
I tried the latest firmware from Samsung but it still happened S10.
I then tried an HP firmware update HP13 from their driver update page and all is well.
If you need to know more of my computer spec then please ask.

Samsung dvd r-120 recorder

First make sure there is not a DVD or CD in the tray. It must be empty. Turn the unit off, then on. Then press the "play/pause" and "stop" buttons. This will reset your DVD player. This worked for me. Unfortuantely the DVD player has always had issues with DVD's that play over 90 minutes. At this point it freezes. I have updated the firmware. It seemed to freeze earlier prior to the update (say around 45-60min). It came free with my TV, which after a year was replaced as it required a $2k repair.
