My BD530 player doesn't play all movies clearly. Some come cover good others re all snowy


When properly connected to a High Definition display or TV, Blu-Ray Disks (BD) should play crystal clearly. Inserting an old "non-Blu-Ray" disk (or the original "DVD") in the Blu-Ray player will display a comparatively "fuzzy" picture. This is the difference between High Definition and Standard Definition. A "BD player" can not "upgrade" the picture quality on DVDs to that of a BD or High Definition picture.

Rent, purchase or choose Blu-Ray Disks (BD) whenever a choice is offered to view the High Definition version of a movie or video. Selecting the DVD version will provide the lower quality or Standard Definition version of the same movie or video.

Check the covers or disk itself to determine if the movie or video is in DVD or BD format. That will tell you what you can expect for picture quality.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

Wont start the movie it keeps running but then says no disc


With the large variety of video formats available nowadays it's difficult to find a unit that plays them all. Chances are you want to play a movie you burned yourself, and though it plays on your PC, it will not play on the DVD player.
Try playing the disc on your PC, and then try different DVD units, perhaps pretending you're shopping for one and want to try your own movie. Chances are these new units may NOT play it either, perhaps because you're using DivX or Xvid two video format contenders on the PC because their codecs offer great compression and very good quality (small file size and even HD video).
If it works on your PC it's because you may have the latests codecs (codifier / decodifier) installed, since some of them may have installed themselves as plugins for your browser, or come as part of a DVD viewing program you may have installed, like WinDVD.
For the time being, watch the DVD on your PC and upgrade your player, if it's more than 2 yrs. old.
Good luck!

But if you want to watch the DVD movies on portable devices like iPod touch, you need an application which enables you to convert DVD to video formats, for example, mp4, mov, m4v etc.

Playing movies from external hard drive


Both methods will work, but you will tend to have more control on the quality of the saved video if you "rip" the DVD yourself.  There are several methods to rip a DVD.  One, you can use the program SUPER, which is free, to rip to a single file.  Otherwise you will have to use several programs.  The second method is to use DVD Decrypter to rip the dvd. Then use VOB2MPG to combine the separate VOB files.  Finally, use SUPER to compress the DVD video to your liking.  In order to use your external hard drive to display to your TV, you have 2 choices.  One, move your computer to your living room and buy an aftermarket video card to output to the TV.  Two, buy a cheap computer which can run video w/o lagging and install an aftermarket video card to output to the TV.  I hope this helps in your DVD video adventures.

Right click on My Computer, choose Properties, Hardware Tab, Device Manager. Expand the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers, choose Secondary IDE Channel (Double Click) Advanced Settings. Current transfer mode should be highest level of DMA (if it is PIO mode that is likely your problem).
If it is PIO mode, click the driver tab and make sure the driver provider is Microsoft. If not, make sure you have the driver available. If the provider is Microsoft close out of the Secondary IDE Channel Properties window, right click on the Secondary IDE Channel in Device Manager, and choose uninstall.
Reboot the computer, then open device manager again, highlight IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers, right click and choose Scan for Hardware Changes. It will find the Secondary IDE Channel and reinstall it. The transfer mode should be DMA. Your CD/DVD will play like normal.

DVD Stutters


Most likely, WinXP is forcing your Secondary IDE (master) to run in PIO mode rather than DMA mode. This could come about after playing a scratch DVD. WinXP makes a quasi-permanent change here that you cannot alter with Device Manager.

Here's the solution I found at http://winhlp.com/node/10

To Remedy, use regedit:
Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E96A-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
(note ..96A-E325... is UNIQUE)

Under this key, look for the entry "0000" or "0001" etc. that has the following properties:
DriverDesc = Secondary IDE Channel
MasterIdDataChecksum = ?some value?

Delete the MasterIdDataChecksum line from this entry, then reboot windows.

Verify using Device Manager that the secondary IDE channel is now "DMA mode".

Good luck.
