This might be a virtual drive or just a mislabled drive by VLC.

When you open VLC go Open Disk>DVD or CD button as appropriate>Manually edit the Disk Device box as appropriate.

SOURCE: The cd/dvd writer constantly open

Hi Charles,

The issue is due to the driver corruption. You need not worry, there is a simple solution for this.

Go to device manage --> right click on your CD/DVD drive and then click uninstall and then restart your computer. Do not keep any CDs while you do this. Just try this out.

Pinnacle 15 ultimate cannot open disc yet disc plays on VLC


While VLC is universal in what it can open most software such as video editing stuff can not.

All you need do is rip the DVD etc and convert the video to a format Pinnacle can use.

Ripper software (free) can be found on the site:
http://www.doom9.org/index.html?/capture/start.html

What you are looking for is DVD Decrypter for ripping DVD's.
I use a thing called Xmedia Recode to convert the raw files to another format.
Any problems check the Forum section of the site.

Hi Welcome to FixYa!
1)Simply download and install K-Lite codec pack for Windows media Player. You could download it from this link: http://www.free-codecs.com/download/k_lite_codec_pack.htm
2)After downloading, just install it and restart the computer

3)You will now be able to watch or play files with different extensions using Windows Media Player.
Hope this would be a big help.
Enjoy!

My pc cnt play downloaded videos


You can try downloading and installing VideoLAN Client as your video player. VLC is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player andframework that plays most multimedia files as well as DVD, Audio CD,VCD, and various streaming protocols. It plays pretty much everything without the need for tracking down codecs.

I hope this helps
