Question about Gateway (5500652) (  5500652) DVD Drive

2 Answers

I have burnt a movie onto a Sony DVD-R . The movie plays on my computer, but will not play on any of my three DVD players, including the ones that say that they can read DVD-Rs. I know that it is not a hardware problem, as this is the second disk that this has happened to. I have formatted the disk and made it compatable. Where am I going wrong?

    I downloaded the movie from Limewire, and burnt it onto a disk using Sonic RecordNow, and the movie when played on my computer is just as though it came from a genuine DVD, so I don't think it's a pirated copy.
    Here's what I done:

    -Downloaded the movie
    -Formatted my DVD-R
    -Burnt the movie onto my DVD-R
    -Made the disc "compatable"
    -Tried and failed to play the disc in any of my DVD players.

    I read somewhere about "finalising" a disk. Is this what I haven't done right, and if so, how do I do it?

I would personally suggest buying or downloading nero for burning movies. and no matter what format they are it will always play.

Well, if your talking abou pirated dvd's, check your software. But I hope you know that dvd players now in days are coming with some kind of pirated dvd protection. Meaning, that the dvd player companies are making it harder for some of us to pirate dvd's that actually work on most dvd players. What software are you using? I'm not going to say what I use cause then I'll be an accomplice. Butmaybe that is the problem, the software is burning with a trace of itself. Or what you can do is go over a friends house and try them out. I know, cause my dvd player stops the dvd every 10 seconds. And my friends dvd player would just play it normally. It's a pain dude, all I can say is do it wright and stay legal. Or just don't get caught!!!


Anyways, hope this helps.



Maybe it's your dvd player that won't read the disks cause they are not original or propper format. Just to make that clear.

Imported videos onto computer, burnt DVD, will not read on Panasonic DVDS player, does it need finalising if so how.?


Depends how old or what model your DVD player is ? When I burn DVD's with my video editing software on my computer,some disks will not play on certain older DVD players, has something to do with video codes that the DVD player has to read? My experience is that my older DVD players will not play burnt DVD's from my computer, but will play in newer DVD players ?

I have burnt photos onto a Dvd-R but my sony dvd player wont play. it plays other Dvd-R. Can you advise. I put disc back and did 'Close Session


Hi rod4926
You need to retry on a DVD-RW and see what's happening . Probably the DVD hasn't been properly finalized . Check your software options .

I BURNED A DVDRW ON MYCPU BUT IT WONT PLAY IT ON XBOX360 OR DVD PLAYERS


If you are trying to play music, then there could be only two problems.
1. Some DVD-RW can unintentionally trick you into thinking that they can play music, if inserted into the right machine. But really what it might really mean is that it can transport music, not play it.
2. The format of the file that you burned onto the disc may not be compatible with the type of DVD-RW that you have.

If you are trying to put an actually DVD/Movie onto the disc, then it is more than likely a format problem. I imagine that it may be really hard to get a video into the correct format so that it can be played on a DVD-RW.
I assume that whatever you are putting onto the DVD-RW is completely original. If it is not (such as a movie you got offline) then copyright laws will take all happiness out of your life.

I downloaded a movie on my computer. I burnt the disc and when I put it in the dvd player it says cannot play disc. I have a sony DVD Player. Any thoughts?


The exact model of DVD player matters. Not all models can play a Computer burned disc.
There are several types of DVD
A factory type DVD in DVD format
A burned movie in MPEG format
a burned disc in DivX format.
Etc.
Try burning the disc with a DVD Creator program, not just 'Burn to DVD'. It's not the same thing.

I have a sanyo 3 disc dvd changer. says no play


first of all you need to check your manuel for dvd's that can be played as in burnt. as of right no cd/dvd changers can play dvd that are burnt. cd's can be played if it states on player. only normal cd's and dvd's can be played. also check your disc for marks on them like fingerprints etc. if you want invest in a great player like sony, pioneer, i have no problem with these players.

Disc Read Error Sony DVD Handycam


Does your camera have other outputs, i.e., composite-video and L/R audio ?

If the disk "plays" inside your video-camera, then use a "video-capture" USB device, to "play" the movie into the USB device, and "record" from the USB device into your computer.

Video freezes playing burnt dvd from computer on a dvd player


dvd players are finiky things they do not like burnt dvd's at all and some will just lock up computers on the other hand can handel those because burnt dvd's are in a coding format that computers can read much easier than a dvd player your best bet is to just buy the dvd non burned and see if that fixes it. good luck and If you ever need anymore help with electronics questions pleases dont hesitate to ask me at dragon_rage27@att.blackberry.net

What it is, is from it playing on any burnt movies so now it won't play factory burnt discs only home-made burnt discs, try the movie on a home-made burnt disc. If nothing you can get a DVD player for like 20 bucks at wal-mart.

iTunes can no longer find my CD burner. Using a gatewayM-1631U laptop, with windows 7 x 64 home premium edition. (See additional details below). I use iTunes regularly, and as recently as Xmas 2009 was burning music CDs frequently on my laptop. Yesterday I attempted to burn a CD, and iTunes no longer recognizes the installed CD burner. I have not installed any programs to my computer recently, or made any other changes. Today I began investigating the issue. I have tried (not in order) the following - and have not solved the issue: 1. Going to the registry editor and deleting the lower and upper filters associated with the H_KEY_LOCAL MACHINE/SYSTEM/CURRENT CONTROL SET/CONTROL/CLASS 4DE3695 .... 2. Uninstall and reinstall iTunes (9.0.2.25) 3. Repair iTunes 9.0.2.25 4. Looked for updates for the drivers (can't find any) 5. Downloading Gearsoft products I admit that I have not tried Windows Media Player (because I'm committed to my iTunes - I sync with my ipod all the time and listen to it alot). I also realize I may have made the problem worse by some of my attempted fixes. Here is the information gathered through itunes diagnostics: Microsoft Windows 7 x64 Home Premium Edition (Build 7600) Gateway M-1631U iTunes 9.0.2.25 QuickTime 7.6.5 FairPlay 1.5.23 Apple Application Support 1.1.0 iPod Updater Library 9.0d11 CD Driver 2.2.0.1 CD Driver DLL 2.1.1.1 Apple Mobile Device 2.6.0.32 Apple Mobile Device Driver not found. Bonjour 1.0.6.2 (118.5) iTunes Serial Number 2987488CE609EDAB Current user is not an administrator. The current local date and time is 2010-02-05 07:50:22. iTunes is not running in safe mode. Video Display Information ATI Technologies Inc., ATI Radeon X1200 Series **** External Plug-ins Information **** No external plug-ins installed. iPodService 9.0.2.25 is currently running. iTunesHelper 9.0.2.25 is currently running. Apple Mobile Device service 2.50.39.0 is currently running. **** CD/DVD Drive Tests **** No drivers in LowerFilters. UpperFilters: GEARAspiWDM (2.2.0.1), Failed while scanning for CD / DVD drives, error 2380. Error while opening iTunes CD driver. This could be caused by a corrupted iTunes file or a conflict with other older CD burning applications, either currently installed or previously installed and uninstalled incorrectly. Additionally, the device driver says my DVD/CD unit is: Optiarc DVD RW AD-7563A ATA Device Anything else you need to help me figure this out? Could really use help and advice. Thanks in advance.
