The lens on the laser maybe fogging and will need cleaning or you may need to replace the laser because it's not as effective as it used to be, the lens is mounted on a delicate spring which when electrified moves to focus on the dvd and in time the spring gets stretched and therefore becomes less effective and there ends our lesson for today, I hope you found this helpful

We want to wacth movie on d laptop,but we need dvd player to put inside,what will we do.

Since you've left out the make/model of the laptop, I'm going to assume it's a NetBook type that does not include a CD/DVD Drive internally, and has no space for one.
With this in mind, the only real choices you have are to watch the movies Streamed to your laptop via a service such as netflix, Copying the movie to a USB drive and viewing it from there, or getting an external DVD drive.

My Sharp Blu-Ray Player shows pixalation while watching Avator? Also, it shows the scene tracking while the movie is playing. How do I stop both of these?

First make sure you have the most current firmware installed, which is HU9071500. If you have done so please disregard the following that is for others that do not know how to do so: No disc should be in the player. Press the setup button. Go to settings and enter. Go to version and enter. Note your current version.

Try another bluray copy of the movie advancing it to the part of the movie that is giving you the problem. If you are still having the same problem or if you have tried the movie on another bluray player and this is not happening it could be the DVD drive and if so the unit needs to be repaired.

I wish to copy a DVD with .DAT file or other video

First to make it clean, you are not allowed to make copies of the original DVDs. They are under Copyright law.

You may make a copy of original DVD for home/backup purpose.

Put your DVD in your drive.

If some movie playing software opens, than close it !
Plug your USB device and open it.
Create a folder with the name of movie, and open it !

Open My computer, right click on your DVD Rom device, and click Open.

You will see contents of the DVD. Press CTRL+A click and drag it to the new folder on your USB !

Later you can watch the movie from the USB.

If you want to copy a disc to antoher you need some software like Nero and you should choose a DVD Copy.

Please note that you will need a Disc with tjhe same size as the original (4.7 or 8.4 GB) and also, note that some DVD movies are protected and can not be copied, or that you might not be able to watch a copy of it.

Screen says cant record copy protected movie

Is this a new problem or has it always been like this? The unit will throw that error message if there's a copy protection flag on the broadcast source.

To make matters worse, there are three flags a broadcaster can set. Copy Always, Copy Once, and Copy Never.

Copy Always and Copy Never are pretty self-explanatory but the Copy Once flag with this unit only works with certain media, namely DVD-RAM and DVD-RW in VR mode with CPRM (Content Protection for Recordable Media.

Copy Always flag should work with all media. I don't know of any easy way to figure out which broadcasts have which flag but try changing your media and recording mode first.

P.S. You may also want to reset to factory default settings by pressing FF and RW together on the player. Also make sure you're running the latest firmware.

Good Luck!
