Re: DVD player cant read DVD media

.Vob files contain audio, video and subtitles all together.However, most MPEG-2-capable DVD players don't support subtitle tracks. I guess your DVD player is in the mentioned majority. That's why you can only play them in your computer drive.

Can anyone with a RH1777 help me finalise my dvd blank disk with his/her recorder?

If you can't find someone with the same recorder you could try putting the DVD into a computer DVD drive. It might be possible to get the video files off the DVD. DVD files are called VOB. You can get free software that will play them. It might even rip the files from the disc for you. You can then transfer them to a DVD disc using the computer.

It's not reading cd, or DVD

Check for scratches on the disk surface - these can inhibit the player from reading a disk correctly.

Some players will read olny certain type(s) of disks. This is an issue mostly for disks created on a computer, not those that are prerecorded and available for purchase or rental that contain movies and music.

As stated above, dIsks created on a home computer may not always be readable on a home player. Re-writeable and recordable types that are not listed as being compatible will not work. Check your manual to see which types are acceptable and not. DVD types are: DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW and DVD-RAM CD Types are CD-R, CD+R and CR-RW. Older home CD and DVD players generally work with "-R" types and the newer players with both "-R" & "+R" types. "-RW" and "-RAM" types are the least likely to be readable in home players.

Additionally, most players require that disks created on a home computer be "finalized". This is an extra step that isn't required by most CD / DVD drives in computers. Just because it works in your computer doesn't mean it will work in your home player. If you're using compatible media and still not able to read disks, check your CD / DVD recording software options to enable finalization.

Good luck!

Does lg play .vob files (ripped) dvd's?

Actually, DVD purchased or rented from stores always have copyright protections. To put dvd to ur LG phone, you need to use dvd ripper to bypass the copyright protection and convert dvd to lg-friendly format 3GP/MP4 . I recommend that you use Daniusoft to rip the DVD's, it can bypass all kind of dvd copyright protection schemes and save the DVD to computer in LG video formats.

Most of all, it will not break the video into pieces, it will join all DVD titles and chapters and make them as one standalone video file.

Unable to read mkv and avi video files from usb drive on philips dvp5990 dvd player

what error does it give? mine reads avis fine, as long as theyre within resolution limits. same for windows media format. couldnt get the mkv files to work though. the usb drive has to be formatted fat32, ntfs does not seem to work. burning these files to dvd as a data disc is another option. lets you fit 10+ hours of video on the disc vs your standard 2 or 4 hour max limits.

Is there anyway to decode movies so I can transfer movies (boughten) to dvd? I have over 400 movies and would like to put them on dvd so they store more compactly!

Use MediaCoder. It will convert any movies you have to any file format that you want, preferrably .mp4 for movies or .avi. The standard DVD format is .VOB, and you'll have a hard time finding a program that can read those for free. Using MediaCoder you can convert them to the much smaller .mp4 format and put them as data files onto a DVD or actual watchable DVDs.

I am using the recorder to store video from a security video camera. Once I have video on the disk I can play it back on my Vista computer in media player but the file save as is not active. What can I...

If your recorder is creating a disc full of .vob files, it's pretty simple.
Copy the .vob files to your harddrive, and rename them as .mpg files.

If it is saving them as .VRO files, you can do the same, but will it will be a RAW mpg file containing the whole disc. Not bad if you just want it as an archive, BUT if you ever need to review it for seeking, you're stuck at realtime review. trying to fast-foward/reverse/etc. will cause errors in most software. In VLC, I have an accurate time played count, but no total time.

I want to convert an avi extension video file to wmv

"will converting an avi extension file to wmv make it work on a dvd player??"

No, a DVD player uses .VOB files

"I have a Philips GoGear SA 3020 and it only supports wmv files. Can I somehow convert an avi extension to wmv?"

Your device is only 2GB so it won't hold a lot of video content but wmv files are generally smaller then .avi.

Go to

That will give you a place to start. Have fun :)

Is a Magnavox MWR10D6 DVD Recorder codec or driver needed to play DVD disks on computer?

There are work arounds... but the reason is when its burnt and finialized its written in .vob format which is dvd mpeg2 format. majority of windows media player codecs wont pick it up. divx does. its just the format its burnt in and you cant change obviously. you can just try like nero showtime which always works or ending up ripping the disc on the computier but that might defeat your purpost of burning them in the first place. Its not the dvd recorder i may add, its just the format. by the way its a magnavox unit made by funai... and trust me your not going to get much out of their. your better off going into forums finding more high depth problems if you really want this to work for firends and families and such.
