Re: DVD Decoder

Can you run any DVD on your laptop?  If not, my first thought is that you don't have DVD software loaded.  If your laptop indeed has a DVD drive you should have received software with it to play DVDs, such as PowerDVD or WinDVD.

My computer is a Dell Dimension 2400. Installed ASUS DVD RW drive in December 2007. It seemed to work just after installation but now it does not work. I get a Windows Media Player Error Message...

But can you still use the DVDRW right? the only problem here is you cannot use media player because of the error message? Because if the DVDRW still read and write so there's no problem with it the problem is with the windows media player, Try using a different media player like VLC.

Hope that helps.........

When I insert a disc I get a "Disc Error" after

Most DVD players display that kind of error when unable to read data on you disc media. Try other DVD disc if that post the same problem. A new one will test if it is the unit problem or the media disc problem. If it post the same problem on a disc that runs well on other players then your player probably has a dirty lens. You can clean the lens using commercially available DVD lens cleaner on the market.

I've had this unit ewr20v4 for about 5 years, never tried to copy from vhs to dvd until now. I get error message, unable to copy to this disk. called CS they offered an upgrade disc but will charge me...

You have a VHS that uses copy protection. Your unit is designed for copying self-authored DVDs, like you make from iMovie or another app, to VHS. It won't work with commercial VHS tapes with copy protection. The upgrade is probably a decoder circuit, and may be worth it if you plan to use your unit this way often.

Message appears unable to decode HD channels

DMR-EZ47V and EZ48V models do not feature a built in HD digital tuner - it is only SD - hence the reason it cannot decode HD. It is a model/design limitation; not a fault.

DVD player not working

Hello riceclan_dad

It could be a compatibility issue w/ the media you are using. To that end, ...

(01) Do you get this error msg. w/ original DVDs?

(02) Or are you trying to play DVDs created at home?

If your answer is YES to (01), then it is unlikely the issue is media incompatibility.

If the answer is YES to (02) (and NO to (01)), try using DVD-R dvds (media) rather than DVD+R (DVD+R is a newer standard that older players do not recognize).

There is another FixYa post (similar issue) w/ one solution HERE. The expert suggests having the lense (on the DVD player) checked and possibly replaced.

Please, let us know if this helps.

Thank you,
