I`m pressuming you are in the uk ? if so !

Go to acer arcade deluxe
select "Play Movie"
Select "settings"
select "BD settings"
Select "region code"
Select "region B" for the UK

Important Note!:
You can only change your region !!! 5 !!!! times!
that is 5 times!
I am totally stressing this.....5 times!

You may have to do this a second time so your computer locks on to this region code.
If you watch an american blu-ray vid, on the fifth change of the region code your computer locks to this region !FOREVER!

Have you changed regions 5 times?
it is one of 3 things 1] a defective dvd reader 2] a bad ribbon
3]a ide controller issue unless you have sata dvd rom check for specific drivers for the dvd make sure you have any special drivers if needed I doubt you do though
take the dvd reader and run it as a slave off the hdd ribbon if that fixes it replace the ribbon if not
take the reader back for a replacement

Why won't my blu-ray or dvd drive not play movies?


DVD drives don't usually have drivers; they're accessed like a disk drive. You might need software to use what's on the DVD once the computer reads it - for movies you'd need Windows Media Player or something like that.

Blue Ray not working


One of the advantages of owning an HP Pavilion includes playing your favorite DVDs conveniently at home or anywhere with your HP Pavilion laptop or notebook.
Whether you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista, your HP Pavilion may experience problems playing your DVDs.
For example, sometimes you may have a DVD movie skip while playing, which can happen frequently with a lot of DVD handling, such as with rental DVDs.
Perhaps your DVD player does not recognize the DVD and rejects it.
When you troubleshoot your HP Pavilion DVD player, you become more acquainted with your HP Pavilion, plus you can get back to movie-watching sooner.
Clean the DVD if you notice any skipping while playing or if the DVD stops.
You can clean the DVD by wiping it from the center to the edge using a lint-free cloth and filtered water.
Avoid watching DVD movies while you have a virus system scan operating on your computer system.
Reschedule the virus scan to another time or disconnect the scan temporarily and then reconnect the scan when you have finished watching your movie.

Disconnect from the Internet while watching movies.
Other programs on your HP computer can access the Internet and disrupt the movie as you watch.
Turn off your printer, scanners and other external devices connected to your HP Pavilion while you watch movies.
This allows your computer to concentrate its resources on your DVD player.
Install the latest DVD player updates from the HP Support and Drivers website for the best DVD performance.
Test the DVD Drive
Insert the DVD into the HP Pavilion DVD drive. Close any window that opens automatically.
Click "Start" and then "Computer."
Right-click on the DVD player icon and then choose "Explore."
Check to make certain you placed the DVD into a DVD drive.
If the HP Pavilion DVD drive ejects the disc or prompts you to insert a disc, it does not recognize the DVD.
You can also try inserting another DVD disc. If you do not see folders appear, such as VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TX, you may have a defective disc, or the DVD may not be compatible with your DVD drive, such as a Blu-ray disc.
Try a different DVD movie.
Insert a regular CD into the DVD drive to see whether HP can read it, after you have tried playing several DVDs.
If the drive can read the CD, it may not be the DVD drive.
Have the internal ribbon cable replaced if the drive cannot read the CD, or have the DVD drive replaced if a new cable does not help.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows 7
Click "Start," "All Programs," "Recovery Manager," and then "Recovery Manager." Click "Continue" if prompted by Windows 7. This will bring up the HP Recovery Manager window.
Click "Software Program Reinstallation" and then "Next."
This will bring up the HP Software Program Reinstallation window, which allows you to reinstall the programs that originally came with your HP Pavilion.
Click "Next" and then follow the instructions provided.
Restart your computer after the driver installation.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows Vista
Click "Start," "All Programs," "PC Help and Tools" and then "Recovery Manager." This will bring up an HP window called Recovery Manager to help you recover HP Pavilion drivers and programs.
Click "Next" and then select "Yes" or "No" when prompted to perform a program recovery.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
HP Pavilion PC Laptop Blue Ray not working
Blu-ray disc technology continues to improve and advance, so simply having a Blu-ray player in your computer doesn't guarantee that all discs will play immediately.
The Hewlett Packard DV7 Entertainment Notebook has a Blu-ray player, but as the technology advances you have to keep the software and firmware on the system up-to-date to ensure compatibility.

Reboot your Pavilion notebook.
A minor miscommunication between the disc drive and Windows Vista or 7 may lead to a disc read error.
Rebooting clears your system's memory and forces Windows to reload all of your device drivers, which may resolve a minor kink.
Play your Blu-ray disc to see if the problem is solved.
Open QuickPlay and update it.
Double-click the "Update" button to open "Updates and Enhancements."
Double-click "Get the latest QuickPlay updates."
Select "Download now!" on the next screen and wait while the file downloads and installs.
Close and reopen QuickPlay and insert the Blu-ray disc again.

Update MediaStart regularly.
This program tracks updates for your Blu-ray player's firmware, the software coded onto the device to tell it what kinds of discs it can read.
Open MediaStart and select "Update your MediaStart." Updates are only listed when available, so if you don't see an update, check back in a few weeks.
Each update for the Blu-ray player enables you to play more recent discs, since some interactive features may not be compatible with older software.
Restart after each update.

Update your software on a disc-by-disc basis.
According to HP, some Blu-ray discs have special content protection and require new codes for you to play the movie.
These codes or disc-specific updates are stored on the disc.
If you are prompted to download a free update after inserting a disc, follow the prompts to do so. The updates will be different for each disc.

Check to make sure your player will play regular content if you continue to have issues with Blu-ray discs. It may be that the error is related to the drive, not the type of media.
Try a CD-ROM or a standard DVD to see if the disc responds.
If not, contact HP for a replacement or for drive-related troubleshooting.

Best Blu-ray ripper review


Trough surfing the Internet for some time, I've collected dozens of Blu-ray rippers developed for Windows and Mac user. With the special intention of figuring out which one is the best of all, I've tested nearly each of them, and finally pushed out this review to show my own opinion about the top 3 Blu-ray rippers summarized by myself. Hope it will be of some help for you, and any comment and criticism are appreciated. Now, let's have a look at the 3 BD rippers one by one together.

No.1 Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper

blurayripper.jpg

Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper is the best one among all the splitters I have tested. It is an independent DVD and Blu-Ray ripper with Windows 7 support, which is capable of decrypting unprotected and protected standard DVDs and Blu-ray disks without the support of third party software.

With full Blu-ray disc support, it is capable of removing copyright protections of almost all BD discs, no matter BD+, or AACS, even MKB Version > 12 is supported as well. With advanced audio technology, it is capable of reading all audio tracks of a BD disc, including Dolby TureHD Audio and DTS-HD Master Audio, which will never let you miss out *********** tongue in the movie.

Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper can rip and convert your Blu-ray movies and general DVDs into other popular HD or SD media formats, like AVI, ASF, MPEG, MP4, WMV, MKV, MOV, FLV, SWF, RM, 3GP, AAC, AC3, MP3, OGG, WAV, WMA, M4A, etc., so that you can playback them on your beloved media devices such as iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, Zune, Blackberry, PSP, PS3, Creative Zen, Nexus One, PS3, WD TV, Xbox, etc., or import them to Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere to make your own movies, or do something else as you like. Moreover, it has a unique option called “Copy”, through which you can directly backup your DVD .vob files and Blu-ray .m2ts files to the hard drive of your PC or an external hard drive, and still keep the format of .vob and .m2ts without any quality loss.

Additionally, this Blu-ray ripper allows user adjusting video and audio parameters like bit rate, frame rate , sample rate, aspect ratio, audio channels, etc., that means you are able to compress the file size of your Blu-ray discs according to your own requirements.

Best of all, it is with the enhanced support for Blu-ray subtitle and audio track conversion. Once you selected on the certain Blu-ray file, it will be able to read out all the subtitle info and audio info included in the BD file, and list them out in a detailed way as below. In that way, you can select your needed subtitle and audio track to do conversion at will.

bdripper100315.jpg

It is really affordable, only $49 US dollars, the cheapest one of all the BD rippers I've ever seen.

Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper also comes with a Mac version - Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac, whose functionalities are the same with the above mentioned Windows version, and both are in the same retail price US $49, and the only deference lies in that one is for Windows user, and the other is for Mac user (Snow Leopard is supported as well). Besides it, I have not found another Mac program which is better than this one. Maybe it is time for software manufacturers to develop more Blu-ray applications for Mac users.

blurayripperformac.jpg

No.2: AnyDVD HD

slysoftanydvdhd100131.jpg

AnyDVD HD comes with the same functionality as AnyDVD, but with additional features for full Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD support, including decryption of Blu-ray (BD+ and AACS) and HD DVD (AACS) movies.

By comparison, it lacks some functions that Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper has, namely, it does not support adjusting customized settings like bit rate, resolution, etc, also changing subtitle and audio track are both unavailable. Additionally, when it comes to multiple output formats and file size compression, it nearly can do nothing about them. So to some extent, it is not as powerful as Pavtube, and that is why I put it in the second place.

Of course, the good thing is that AnyDVD HD is expert in removing all sorts of BD protections, which is the most important feature that some other BD rippers lacked.

It costs 63 euros, equals to $92 US dollars, much expensive than Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper.

The pity is that AnyDVD HD does not have a Mac version, so Mac users can not find an identical solution from it like that of Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper.

No.3: Top Blu-ray Ripper

topbdripper100315.jpg

It is capable of decrypting blu-ray disc s and general DVDs to all the popular video and audio formats, like FLV, SWF, MOV, 3GP, 3GPP2, MKV, AVI, MPEG, MPEG4, WMV, RM, etc. Moreover, it supports previewing the movie before ripping, clipping the movie freely, snapshot the images in the preview, automatically shutting down the computer, etc., and supports batch ripping. All these functions are all had by Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper.

It seems that Top Blu-ray Ripper has nearly the similar functions as Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper. But why do I put it in the third place? That is totally because of its inferior decrypting ability. Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper and AnyDVD HD can absolutely decrypt all the Blu-ray files you throw at it, while Top Blu-ray Ripper sometimes can only work on some of them selectively. In another word, Top Blu-ray Ripper can not decrypt all Blu-ray protections, especially BD+, and MKBV > 10.

What’s more, it only supports customizing video size, and audio channels, but not supporting adjusting bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, and other audio and video parameters to allow user optimizing their conversion, and also, changing/selecting subtitle and audio track language are unavailable as well.

The price of Top Blu-ray Ripper is $79.99 US dollars, much higher than that of Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper, but cheaper than that of AnyDVD HD.

Software acer arcade deluxe not open


Ok....I have the same problem...Acer Arcade Deluxe can't read any of the new blu-ray discs coming out after the first of April.....

I've been in contact with Acer Support by email....and they can't help us....well they're not.....I did everything they asked....Factory restore....which is the stupidess idea.....the program needs an upgrade...and its not by reinstalling the older version that it will work....any way....after 12 emails...they told me to call Acer support...and I didnt get the chance to speak with anyone...the computer said that my serial number was not supported by their phone service and i should trying contacting by email.....

Vicius circle going on.....

Anyway...everyone who bought Acers with a Blu-ray player in it...all got screwed up big time....they stop selling them in stores..and Acer Arcade Deluxe has been discontinued by Cyberlink Corps. ....so there is nothing we can do....the only way this could be fixed....Acer would have to buy everyone a new software that read blu-ray discs like Power DVD 9 Ultra...thats sells for more than a 100$....

BTW I got my notebook 4 months ago...1000$ and already i cant read blu-ray.....
