Chances are great that the DVDs not being recognized because it's scratched. There is also the possibility that the laser lens itself is dirty. A few things you can try are to wash the DVDs with mild soap and warm water then dry it off with a soft cloth working from the center out in a straight line (not in a circular motion). Look for a laser lens cleaner at any store (I have mine from Radio Shack). It looks like a CD/DVD with little brushes on it to clean the lens as it passes over them.
If the DVD itself looks like it was used as a shield in a sandstorm, there are a few products on the market that will actually shave a small layer off the plastic coating and restore usability. I have heard great reviews from people who have used and swear by Skipdoctor for that but you're welcome to research others. I am kind of anal about my music and movies so have always taken excellent care of them and not had the need to try it.
Let me know how this works for you and rate me accordingly if it helps.

Video wo'nt play on XP


To play any media on PC needs codec to support it. If you are playing video on Windows Media Player, go to Tools - Options - then in opened dialogue of options go to DVD - Advanced . Here (Properties dialogue) you will find the supported codecs for different media. If the video file you are playing is not mentioned then the video won't play. So download the required codec to support the video file. A better option is install PowerDVD software which plays almost every video file. Download the old version software from the following link.

Name: Deluxe
Serial Key of Power dvd 7:

Also install real player.

Drive won,t play discs and sometime won,t reconize that a disc is


If the "bad" disks work fine in some other DVD-player, then it's time to spend $40 and buy a new DVD-writer.

Or, if your current DVD-player is under the manufacturer's warranty, exercise the warranty, to get it repaired/replaced.
