I just bought a bunch of movies from Blockbuster Saturday (hooray for big sales) and I tried playing one of them about ten minutes ago on my computer. Nothing happened, QuickPlay didn't pop up, and when I went to "My Computer" to see if it showed anything in the disc drive it didn't have anything. I tried with another movie, bought at the same time and the same thing happened. The first disc has a few visible scratches, but nothing worse than regular wear and tear, and the other one had fingerprints but no scratches. Could it be the movies or is there something wrong with my comp?

Re: quickplay won't play certain dvd's
Hello tayumira...I don't know what version of quickplay you are useing but if it's not launching at all, it could be driver related. Do you have the latest drivers updated and installed? This has a been a problem for many with the dv6000 and 9000 series. In fact, so many complained HP extended the warranty The quickplay buttons are also ultra senisitive and known to stick and hang up. You can go to HP's website... http://www.hp.com/#Product and update your system, then after that go to ..... http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c00297718 and follow those steps. It has all the software very various quickplay versions. Good luck,,,i hope this helps

May I suggest that you try other programs to play your DVD's. Such as VLC media player. This program can play any meida file and is free. Also you could try gom player. Both of these are available off
As to why your DVD's aren't playing. It may be bcause you have changed regions or because the DVD file is not recognized by the players because they don't have the ability to play certain fornats.
That's quick time for you. Do you have the latest version installed? Have you tried VLC Media Player for Windows Media 11? Very good programs. You can download codec packages that will play any movie format, change formats, play directly from websites, dvd's, cd's and everything else.
Since it played 3 movies before the failure it sounds like a defective unit. One word for you...REFURBISHED. Many returned "just purchased" items suffer from incorrect connections, customer misunderstandings and simply not knowing what the unit can and cannot do. The other side of that coin is returned units with manufacturing, shipping or customer damage (you plugged your speaker wires into an AC outlet?!!). Sure, the manufacturer is obligated to post "Refurbished" on the box after the factory repair has been completed, but tell that to the local sales person or stock clerk at your local "big box" store who quickly repackages the unit and puts it back in stock....Take it Back Jack!
No motion picture, movie, games, etc do have this problem, because the LCD or TFTP screen has very low refresh rate so while playing games OR watching dvd movies on a laptop will give jerky movements which as you have mentioned that the is no syncronization. The refresh rate on laptop screens are 40 60 Hz whereas in CRT Monitors we get 70 90 Hz, Sorry nothing can be done....sodeep
Occasionally the software on most blu-ray players needs to be updated to the newest technology. The reason some discs play and some don't is because the discs that play are most-likely older movies or from a company that still used the "outdated" software. So the discs that don't play (most likely discs made with the updated software) won't play on your player until you've update the player's software. To do this visit, in your case, Sony's website for update info. There are a few ways you can get the info. You can download it directly to your player (if it has online accessibility) or you can request that they send you an update disc. Either way, most companies provide the update for free. Hope this helps, good luck!
I rented Rush Hour 3 from blockbuster along with Woodcock and both did not play on my Sylvania DVD player. I did take them and put them on my computer and their was a page that came up INTERACTUAL
This DVD is enhanced with interactive features designed exclusively for use on a computer.
PLAY DVD with enhanced features (that prompted a download)
or PLAY DVD without enhanced features and you can play the DVD movie on your small home computer screen.
I believe that the DVD producers have added the ENHANCED FEATURES to be used on a computer and in so doing they do not work at least not on the Sylvania DVD players.
Your DVD player is having a problem reading the disc. This is what is accounting for the pausing and the slow loading times...especially if it plays other movies without hitches. Even if the DVD is cleaned, some scratching on the disc will prevent it from being viewed properly. Blockbuster shoudl give you another disc to try of the same movie if you ask. Also, you can try getting a cleaner for your DVD player to remove dust and help it read discs better.
