Re: dvd play is choppy

Don't use Windows media player, Try a different one, like POWER DVD or WINDVD I have found playback on these to be better than WMP

Burning a Data cd on dvd on windows 7 is very easy and simple using Windows media player....

just follow the steps given below:

1) Click on the Start button

3) Go to Windows Media player

4) Once the player is open look for the Player library and click on the Burn Tab There.

5) Once the Burn options are opened click on Data DVD or CD

6) Insert a blank cd into your cd-rom.....make sure the type of cd you are inserting is same as the
option you select for burning.

7) if in case auto play box opens then close it

8) In order to make it easier, prior to starting the procedure of burning a dvd or a cd make a folder on
the desktop which includes the data or the songs that you want to burn makes it easier to locate a single
folder rather than to search individually for an item.

9) Drag the songs you want to burn right into the middle of the player library's list pane which lies on its right side

10) for removing a certain song, right click and select remove from list

That's it and you get a whole set of songs into your cd just within a few get goin.!!!

Good Luck!!!!!

We cant plays our DVD on PDVD.Doesnt works our PDVD.It shows an error code while we trying to play a dvd by using PDVD.Code is 80040216

Read the thread from - Error 80040216 Power DVD!

There are many free DVD software you can use, why use Cyberlink 'buggy' software?

If you are on a Windows OS platform,
Here are some free Players eg. VLC Player, MPStar Player or Windows Media Player 11.
Download the codec package and install either "K-Lite Codec Pack or K-Lite Mega Codec Pack" from With these you should be able to play most of the Audio and Video formats.

Hope it helps.

Media center does not play cds or dvds please help

You have to check your CD/DVD Rom to make sure the device is not faulty.

Open your Windows Explorer, insert any CD/DVD to see whether your CD/DVD is able to read the the disk.

If it cannot read the disk, most probably the CD/DVD rom is faulty and you have to replace it.

I have purchased an external dvd writer for my netbook but unfortuntely when i try and play dvds the message- unable to play as no decoder installed appears on the screen. Which decoder would you...

Try this link to install K-lite codec pack:
It also inclides Media Player Classic.
To play DVD open the program, drag the folder VIDEO_TS from your DVD disk and drop it in the program's window. Double click on the picture to toggle full screen and window modes.

Is windows media player able to play dvds? how daes it work? my laptop media can not play dvds.. i m feeling tired of it..

You may need codecs in order to play most DVD videos and other formats like DivX. Use this codec pack here. Select the Media Player Classic as the application while you were asked to provide it. K-Lite After that both of your players are ready to play DVDs (its better to have Media Player 11 in your system for a better experience) Enjoy your movie!

Multi Media 11

You have to create a play list. Load it everytime you start media player. Or you can try a different player....such as Nero or other players, do a google search for music players.
