I use VLC Player to watch everything. It has all the codecs and decoders already inbuilt. It has never failed me in 3 years.

Also, you might want to consider AnyDVD, which is pretty amazing software but is not free, like VLC Player. But if you click on the link you will read why I think you will find it useful.

I suggest AnyDVD, but strongly recommend VLC Player.

Hope this helps

ps Cleaning the rollers properly, and checking for paper jams and small pieces of paper trapped in the cogs are usually the initial cause of such stalling. Maybe you should contact the person you spoke with before, who will remember your conversation and be able to further advise you.

Why doesn't my laptop boot?

you are attempting repairs from a "possible bad hard drive" The best way to approach this is to try to fix errors using external media, either a DVD or USB with your version of windows..
Alternately you can enter the C: drive in safe mode using the prompt type the following:
chkdsk /f C:\
That should report any errors and fix them with the file system. If the errors are at hardware level, then consider replacing your hard drive.
Hope it helps

Remove DRM from WMV WMA

What is DRM? Why do we remove DRM from WMA WMV? Have you download music and video from Windows Media Player, iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster, bearshare, Spiral Frog, BBC iPlayer downloads? These popular music and movie download programs among the music fans always come with a disgusting word - 'DRM'.
DRM (Digital Rights Management) - The anti consumer copy protection that prevents you from using music or movies in a way that suits you. For example, if a WMA or WMV you downloaded from WMP(windows media player) that has DRM, you can only play it back on a compatible device, so if every piece of music had DRM on it you would need to buy the same track on CD to listen in your CD player or car, as an iTunes download to play on your iPod, as a ms store download to play on your Zune etc, but since you paid for it once you shouldn't be forced to pay for it again and again and again, remove DRM license from WMA WMV and other protected files then you can play the music video on phone, iPod, Zune, PSP, CD player, pc, burn DRM protected WMV files to DVD and copy drm protected wmv itunes m4v movie files to anything else that you can listen to music video on.
How to remove DRM from WMA WMV? I got a few methods listed below:
1. Burn and rip
Actually, there is a common free method to remove DRM from WMA with 2 steps, Step 1 Burn the protected WMA to a CD
Step 2 Rip them off to your computer, then the DRM should be removed from the WMA files.
But it's not very convenient and may wear out your CR-ROM. And windows media player can only burn and rip the WMA (or you will need DVD copy and DVD ripper for other formats).
2. Re-record
One of the most common and simple technology is recording the DRM protected WMA then use an ordinary converter to convert the recorded and unprotected files. Because this technology is easy to realized and easy to support more DRM formats besides protected WMA it is welcomed by most of the DRM converters like the SoundTaxi, NoteBurner , etc.
But there are some disadvantages for those programs.
1. The conversion speed won't get much improvement due to the long recording process.
2. Much audio and video quality could be lost during the recording process.
3. Hook
Hook is another new and more complicated technology which can be used to remove DRM license from protected WMA WMV files. Comparing with recording process, these sorts of drm removal have much higher conversion speed, but it's hard to make it support some DRM formats with new and lofty encrpytion tachniques.
And as far as I know, Aimersoft was one of its supporters. After giving a test for some free trials I found it is convenient to crack DRM from protected WMA WMV files with Aimersoft Media Converter, and it also supports other formats conversion like AAC, AC3, WAV, M4A, M4b, MP3, etc.

Remove DRM from WMA WMV and your favorite music videos to release you music life.
Have Fun:)

How can I uninstall window 8

To go back to your previous version of Windows, you'll need to reinstall it from the recovery or installation media that came with your PC; typically DVD media. If you don't have recovery media you might be able to create it from a recovery partition on your PC using software provided by your PC manufacturer. Check the support section of your PC manufacturer's website for more information. After you install Windows 8, you won't be able to use the recovery partition on your PC to go back to your previous version of Windows.

If you need any kind of technical assistance you can contact support cell at

Have movies on my harddrive but whn I try to burn them they wont play in the DVD player

- It might be that your DVD does not have a compatible video codec

- you actually invest on video codec which converts any video file to .VOB

- There is a software that converts any video file format (example *.avi, *.mp4, *.mpg ) to .VOB

- This should be taken as personal use because we do have laws againts anti piracy (sorry, just a friendly advice)

I cannot play CD's on my desktop PC.

If the optical unit can read DVD, but not data CDs , or music CDs , then the lens is dirty or defective. In that case , try first using a cleaner disk. If that does not work, replace the drive unit.
If instead the problem is that computer can read data CD but does not play music, then reinstall Windows media player. See Windows Media Player 10
