Player can read CD's, yet no DVD's

Hi, My player can read any cd or picture cd, yet no DVD's and DVD-RW anymore. I did the firmware upgrade on, yet not sure that it's linked to that. ANyhow, I suppose it is a software problem as any lens problem would probably also make cd reading impossible, or not ? Thanks in advance for anyone who can advise, Peter

Your problem is the firmware version. Contact Toshiba Tech Support 1-800-631-3811 they will send you a disk with a firmware update along with special instructions on how to update the unit. I had a similar problem and they send me the firmware version 1.013.

Hi;help me please about my dvd lg 5183;my dvd player cant read the all kind of cd dvd and somtimes the cd dvd RW .IT may be need a new firmware to upgrade it.what i can i do?please somone can sent to me a...

Hi I am Vortash firstly the site you can download all LG software from is listed at the end of this message .
One of the main problems anengineer sees with dvd machines is not reading ?. and 50% of the time there is nothing more wrong with the machine than it needs a good clean of the laser Lens . so before you do anything else invest in a good dvd/cd cleaner and put it in your machine . not only will it give you less trouble it will prolong the life of the machine also .
The problem you seem to be having is that maybe your using DVD's of the wrong region most players can only read one type depending on where you purchased the machine I:e Europe, USA , Asia . etc : 1 for the USA and 2 For europe 5 Kenya and so on so check the label first . I hope this helps with your problem ... Regards Vortash

Sony CD/DVD Player DVP-NS50P not playing my avi files DVD+RW

You need to convert avi files to dvd format before burning, otherwise the player won't recognize them. Google "avi to dvd" and you'll find a number of free or pay programs that will do the conversion for you.

DVD+RW make compatable with other dvd players

Just like with CD players...not all Players will read the CD-RW format..but they will read the CD-R's. Check your manual to see if your DVD-Player is compatible with DVD+RW formats.

Complaint to H&B/JPF Entertainment This is a message to let you all know not to buy any products from H&B, because first of all the quality of the products is bad and the service is even worse. Here is a letter I sent to the General manager (Fred) of the company and he never replied me at all. We bought a DVD recorder last year, it never fully worked, we sent it for repair to this company and now we don't receive it back at all !! Just so you all know this company cannot be trusted at all and we all should stop buying H&B products, so that this company will dissapear by itself within a matter of time. If there's someone who can help me with this issue, just contact me by E-mail as soon as possible. Today our lawyer sent an official letter to the company and they will have to pay a lot of extra costs because I am going to court with this !! If there are more consumers with this bad experience, just send me an E-mail and together we can achieve more against this company. JPF Entertainment Fax: +33 1 58 81 05 30 To: Fred Official Complaint Dear Fred, With this Fax message I hereby send an official complaint to your company. This message will also be sent to my lawyer and to some consumer companies in Belgium, the Netherlands and France and also to the Economic Inspection. I just spoke with you on the phone and explained my problem, you just told me that you aren?t responsible for this, but I think (as a Managing Director) you ARE responsible for all the company departments and also mistakes. I tried to contact the number you gave me (Rafael) but no one answered the phone. After more then 3 months of sending E-mail messages and receiving no satisfying answers at all, this maybe is the only way to get my product back. More then 4 months ago I asked for a RMA number, this already took more then a month (and a lot of E-mail messages) before I finally received it. 3 months ago I sent the defective H&B DRX430 DVD Recorder (in warranty) to your company for repair, this product was purchased in November 2005 and did never work. On the 21st of September I sent my last E-mail message, and (again) no one replied to this at all. The last news I heard from your Technical Department, was that there was a problem with the truck and therefore It took this long. This is my final message to you, because the next messages will be from my lawyer. I demand you one more (and last) time to solve this problem as soon as possible and make sure I will receive my product back (repaired, complete and fully working) within 5 business days. If not, my lawyer will do all the necessary steps to get my product back, all the extra costs are for your company. As an attachment to this fax message you will find several E-mail messages and the repair form (with RMA number) Regards, M. Fijneman Copy: - Lawyer M. Schildermans, Bree (Belgium) - Government, Economic Inspection (Belgium)
