Re: Dvd mp3 plays only 500 songs in this player

Tried putting the songs into different folders with less than 500 in each folder? May not have enough memory for more?

The Iview 102dv player played a music dvd ok for the first 3 times. The player is about 2 months old. It gets stuck on the first song of the music dvd. If taken out, then it may play from the 2nd song...

Not an expert in DVD players, But it sounds like a scratched DVD or a weak laser. You could try buying and running a laser lens cleaner through it, as that will clean the laser and make it play better.
Also check if there is a firmware update for the DVD player.

I am trying to download music to my computer and it does not have a sound card. Do I need to install one in order to download songs to my Mp3?

you will not need a sound card in order to download the mp3, you just will not be able to play it from the computer, but how ever you plan will work just fine, only downfall you won't be able to screen the song to make sure it is a good mp3 before you transfer it to the mp3 player

Hi, am Mr.Varghese. I have LG dvd which is 1-2 yrs old. Problems are:- 1) DVD - not playing at all 2)VCD - Playing but stucks after 3-5 mins 3) MP3/Audio CD - Afer 1 song is over it restarts from the...

Hello Mr. Varghese,

Your LG dvd player's lens might need cleaning. It is having a hard time reading those cds that is why it sometimes skips or just stops in the middle of playing them. Does this happen also to new cd's? Sometimes cleaning those cds helps the lens reading them.

If you have a disk cleaner, you can run that for 30 seconds on your player. It that does not help, then you might need to open your DVD player's casing and clean the lens manually by opening your player, get a soft cotton earbud and damp in an alcohol and gently wipe your dvd's lens. Then try to return back everything and test playing cd.

I cannot play my ipod of my memorex dvd player i have linked it with the USB but it will not allow me to play my music

If the dvd player states it can play songs from in iPod, make sure it can play files that are not in mp3 format. iTunes doesn't use .mp3 as its default format for music. Please check the manual of your dvd player to insure the unit can play music files from an mp3 player. Keep in mind that just because the unit can play mp3 files, doesn't mean it can play those files while they're stored on an mp3 player. If your manual says you can play mp3 files on that player, it's talking about mp3 music that you burn to a disk using your computer. All dvd players can't play mp3 files so the ones that can advertise the fact that they can. But the player probably can't play the files from an iPod. If it can, it will say specifically that it can in the manual.

Unfortunately, what you're describing is a repair issue. You won't be able to address the problem with troubleshooting. There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty, this will cost you nothing. If you're not under warranty the cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.
