Question about Televison & Video
My Acer Aspire 7720 G internal dvd drive seems to start to play but stops after the first 5 seconds and gives an error notification, it can give the sound from a film but with no picture and it seems to see files that are on dvd. I could not get the driver to load up for the graphics cardin Vista so I installed Ubuntu and was able to get it ok there. Dvds will not work as they should on either of my dual-boot platforms.

Try to remove the device from Device manager, and then reinstall or upgrade the driver.
If the error continues to occur, it may be possible to edit the operating system Registry to resolve the issue.
Click the Start button, press run and type regedit.

I too have this same problem on my current DVD player, AND strangely enough I had the same problem on my previous player.
Previous player was made multi region and was a Sony S660 (I think that was the model number).
My current DVD player is a Denon and was £550! It is also made multi region and has the same problems! I don't get it!
