Do I need software to play dvd movies on my 2006 honda odyssey it doesnt reconize dvd movies.


Pull out your manual and make sure that it can play all types of movies. I am guessing that you are putting in BluRay movies and it only accepts regular DVDs

Hello there.

Push "Play/Pause" and "DVD Rec" on the dvd recorder a few seconds to see the service menu. There you can find your firmware version.

Post back the version for us.

Hope this helps.

5 yr old Westinghouse TV w built in DVD player. DVD player won't play. Tried several different movies, none will play.


First thing I would check is that you are playing regular DVDS and not BluRay. Your TV may be old enough not to accept BluRay. If it doesn't work with a regular DVD then you most likely have a bad reader which can be replaced but you will have to take the tv apart to get to it.

I can't play a movie


What kind of console do you have?

And what kind of disc do you have?

If it's a PS3 it can play regular DVDs and BluRay discs.

If you have an XBOX 360 you should be able to play movies on DVDs or HD DVD.

If you have a Nintendo Wii then it can't play any kind of movie unless you unlock (mod) it. Use a guide to do that like this one.

Blu ray discs freeze up after playing a few chapters, regular dvds play fine, player says it has the latest firmware available


Do the reset that is in the menu first. After completing that reset hold down the power button on the bluray player itself not the one on the remote until it displays reset on its screen.

I have Avatar Blu-ray movie and it plays on my BDP-BX2 11.4.006 version. Take it back and get it exchanged. Try new one. May have to go to another store since the same shipments (bulk) that are at your store are ALL the same. I have done this 4 times with 4 different movies and 2 of them worked. I'm getting the .008 update but, I'm starting to think the Blu-ray disc are the problem since I have one that is made in Mexico??? I don't think they are all being made correctly. Too Cheap!

The laser head has probably just got dust on it, get a cleaning disk.
