Go to the link below and download the program called "VLC". This has all the codecs in it to be able to play any video. I have never had a problem with using this bit of software, and it plays everything ive ever wanted it to.

So my dad just got me a used pc from his friend and some cables were unplugged, i was wondering were they go. ps It doesn't show up on the monitor


So you get no pre-boot video...You need to supply more info than this for a resolution. A picture of the wires your talking about would be a good start.

I have a dell 755 that the CD drive won't play certain CD's. It is not the CD because it plays on other machines. Some CD's will play just fine. Get's the error message Unable to Access Drive D tr


it depends on the files on the cd ...they might require a certain software to be installed in order to be read..for example the player may not be able to read mp4 without a codec installed ..or vcd (video cd ) to need a dvd player installed or a player that supports video cd and dvd-es..Same way for other file types...or ...certain speeds being imposed on writing ..and your cd drive to be unable to read them on those speeds..

Why everytime i play movie or video (download, played using cd-rom) my screen turns flicker/static but when i play some videos from net like youtube or streaming, im not getting any problem. Audio is...


Sure,
This seems to be a problem with

1- Your DVD / CD player , which is not reading the video files properly probably because of a damaged lens.
2- Your RAM is less than the amount which is required to play the video file properly.
3- The CD / DVD itself if it has scratches or has done bad, if this is the case with all video cds/dvds then this is not the problem.

Now to check if it's not a problem with your DVD or CD player reading the disc,

Try copying the video file to your hard disk and play it , if it works ok , it could be the reason that your CD/DVD lens is damaged and not in best condition.

How can I burn pictures onto a DVD, so ot can be


If you have a DVD burner you can use the burning software that came with the unit. Maybe "Sonic" or "Nero".
Start the burning software and drag add drop your pictures into the "burn window".

Check your DVD front door to see if it says DVD Writer or DVD ROM.
If it says ROM, then it is not a burner.

Best DVD or CD discs is Verbatim brand (OfficeMAX, best price).

What file format should be used on the CD-r to contain music with video & will play on product player?


If you are going to be playing it in a PC, then you don't have to change the format unless you want to compress the files. The CD-R will be used as a storage disk, basically. You may have certain problems playing some files on a home or car stereo. Some home audio units have MPEG and AVI playback capabilities though.

Dvd-audio cd burning issue


If you are burning a "Data Disc" (the burning software should tell you or have you select it) then music will NOT work on a CD-player. It will only work in another PC.

Data disc is for files, pictures, videos, music that you want other COMPUTERS to be able to read and play.

If you want a music CD to work in a car or something like that it NEEDS to be burned as a music disc, not data.

Hope that helps.

How can i change the format that my "magix Photostory CD & DVD" program burns my pictures/music to a DVD that WILL play on a home DVD player and not just a computer? I have a Windows XP


There are three ways to create a Video CD (VCD) that contains your photo stories:
You can obtain Microsoft Plus! Digital Media Edition and view the Photo Story 3-authored WMV file in Photo Story 2 by going to Play your story or create a video CD of your story and then create a VCD.using the Photo Story 2 Video CD-burning feature.
• You can obtain Microsoft Digital Image Suite 10 or above and view the Photo Story 3-authored WMV file in the Photo Story that comes with the Digital Image Library and save and burn to VCD.
• You can obtain VCD-authoring products that work with Photo Story files, such as MyDVD by Sonic Solutions or InstantCD\DVD by Pinnacle Systems. You can use these software to convert the Windows Media video (WMV) files into files that can be copied to a DVD and played in a DVD player.
Note: VCD and DVD-authoring software is not included with Photo Story 3.
