Re: what is the difference between dvd-r and dvd+r
Most of the time you can find this out by looking at the drawer front of your drive it will say something Like DVD+RW or -RW to let you know the difference, if it says MULTI Recorder or has DVD/+-RW it uses both.
If the drawer does not say something, then your best bet would be to open the control panel and device manager, click on the dvd drive and find the model of it and google it for specs and you can find that way.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

There are listing on the web for this model for anything from $49.99 new to $17.00 used. You should keep in mind that pricing on the web will usually be cheaper than what you will pay from a regular store. The overhead for a web page versus the overhead of a brick and mortar store are dramatically different so of course the retail price will differ as well. Just keep the prices in mind if you are looking at a retail store. Remember as well that many of the web sites selling electronics will charge you a shipping charge.
Your computer is an older pentium 4 PC. As such it uses ATA / IDE - EIDE drives. These days stores sell SATA drives but IDE drives are still VERY COMMON. You can find tons of them on eBay or your local computer store (for much more than eBay). The original drive has a 24x CD reader, 8x CD-r writer and a 4x DVD reader. It does not write DVDs. You can buy any ATA/IDE drive you like and now you can probably afford a DVD burner too.
Some of your games or movies may have problems playing due to 2 issues.
1.> dirty / scratched cd or dvd : Clean each cd with alcohol to clean up any smudges. If the cd / dvd is badly scratched then most electronic & music stores sell a rubbing compound that can be used to buff out mild scratches.
2.> Dirty laser head. : Music & electronic stores sell a special dvd laser cleaning kit, usually around 20$ that should do the trick.
Remember always clean your cd / dvd's before you put them into your machine and always put them back in the case.
As far as hacks go, that will void your warrenty and generally is not a good idea, most hacks are firmware changes that once made can kill the ability to play some games or worse brick your system.

As you may be aware, the Music & Film Industry thinks we are all criminals and pirates .. whilst they, themselves, believe it is quite allright to sell their products at different (i.e. rip-off) prices in different markets ..
This means they have encrypted their products (DVD movies) using licensed DRM technology and use something called 'Region Encoding' to prevent criminals (when it comes to DRM, all customers are assumed to be criminals) from buying their product eg in USA for halfthe price they sell it for in the UK ..
Any DVD Drive manufacturer that wants to incorporate the ability to play video DVD's must agree to implement Region Encoding in bother their hardware and their drivers ...
HOWEVER it is plainly too much to expect Manufacturers to make different drives for different markets .. SO when you install a new DVD drive, you have a maximum of 3 chances to select the Region .. after this, Windows, the DVD Driver and the DVD Drive itself refuses to allow you to change it anymore ..
Various 'engineers tools' exist that can remove the '3 strikes and you are locked out' limit - or even to switch the drive into 'Region Free' mode .. but only for some Manufacturers drives .. and there are some 'open source' tools that allow you to play DVD's in a non-Regfion specific drive .... (hint - use google)
If you have VISTA, however, all bets are off (since MS agreed to enforce the Music Industry DRM wether the user likes it or not).
Hi. If you are selling different products, you will need to re-program your PLUs. If you are selling the same products, then you can transfer your PLUs via the CF card to the new machine. I have never seen any way to edit products with Excel. The data is not stored in a database format. If you buy your products from a large supplier, they will sometimes have PLU dumps available for some models of register. Phone around and find out.
Hey Maharatha, In order to use this DVD player overseas, a foreign voltage converter may be all that you need to ensure that it functions properly. Many major retailers (including your local Best Buy™ store) should sell 240V to 120V voltage converters, but the brands available and product pricing may vary from store to store location. If you would prefer to avoid looking for a voltage adaptor, remember that Best Buy™ stores do offer a 30-day return and exchange period for all DVD players we sell. Once beyond this point however, we would be unable to take the product back. Additionally, please keep in mind that the vast majority of electronics that are sold within the United States will be designed to function using a 120V/60Hz electrical current. While some products may exist that are able to support both the U.S. and Indian electrical standards, it cannot be guaranteed that your local store will carry such an item in stock. Hope this helps you out. Sincerely, Aaron Go Ahead. Use Us.
Hi this is an easy problem to solve depending on where you live you need to go into a big store that sells diy stuff like paint electric lights flooring you know the bigger diy stores. Now they sell ac adaptors that have a lot of connectors that fit onto the end of it you usually get about 10 different sized fittings to fit loads of devices also with these is the plug now the plug itself has a switch on it than you can choose wht voltage you need. I brought one 3 days ago for my playstation 2 i couldnt find one anywhere with the right end on they was either to big or to small but on going to a big diy store like i went to B&Q if you have this store go their they stock these plugs but any hardware store or big diy store will stock these also electrical retailers that sell things like tellys door lock door bells things like diy associated now i paid £10 uk sterling its about $20 dollare but was cheaper than paying £30 for originall adaptor. So goto these stores and look what they sell you need to check the volt of the dvd player and also the amp as you have to match these so that it works this should be printed on bottom of dvd player write this down and take it with you for referance but you should have no problem locating on as their are loads about ok let me know if you need further assistance ok
most electrical stores sell multi adaptors that work anything take the unit with you so they can check the write way round the power cable needs to be ie the + and - input needs to be the write way round but they should be able to matck you one up for about 5 pound any good hardware store should sell these even some bigger general stores sell them but they wont give you much help getting the write one so i would take it to good hardware store this should solve your prob hope this is some help
