Re: My New DVD Movie Can't Read

Some pc DVD players will only play films from a certain region. It could also be the video codecs? Search for the all codec packs on the net as sometimes a film wont play unless its got the right codec. Also some companies dont like people to play films on their computer as they can be ripped to hard drive etc. Three answers that could the the cause of your problems, sorry i coudlan't be more help :-(

I need a DVD decoder

VLC Media Player is a free dvd decoder software that is just about as good as any commercial dvd decoding software. I run it and do not even install any other type.
Just google the name and you will find the link to download it.

Write Error: Burns to a percentage and stops. Various times it stopped at 65%, 25%, 72%... Lite-On SOHW 1673S Memorex DVD-R

There are a couple of things doing it.

Best bet? Try burning with other media other then Memorex.
If that doesnt work, you might have a buffer underrun error. Meaning the data is not geting to the burner as fast as it wants it. The fix? Try burning at a lower speed to see if it burns right.
Lastly, defrag your hard drive in windows. Click on "My Computer" on the desktop, right click on the "C:\" and select "Properties", click the "Tools" tab. Under "Defragmentation" click "Defragment now". One of the three should work. If all there don't work, you might have to replace the burner.

Have a nice day!

Can not Find in "My Computer" the DVD RW and DVD

Are the power and data cables plugged in from the DVD-RW to the PC?
If cables are plugged in ans secure, download the driver and install it on your PC. You might need to restart after that.

Comdo fail to read DVDs'

  1. Check its DVD reading speed
  2. Try reading a prerecorded or original DVD disk for a movie for example, if it can read this then it means the DVD you are tryng to read were burnt at speed faster than what your DVD can read.
