The standard DVD format is .VOB, and you'll have a hard time finding a program that can read those for free. Using best mp4 player you can convert them to the much smaller .

If you can find a program called DVD Decrypter, you can make a file that will play on most any computer and many players. It decryptes the files and combines them into a playable format that you can use to preserve your DVDs so they don't get banged up by watching them. Also has several different methods of saving the files. You can also rename the file to a .mpg extension which is more recognized than .vob

Usually you can get a standard length movie down to 0.75 to 1.2G.

Lots of conterversy about doing this but since it is YOUR collection YOU are trying to preserve and you have NO intention of selling your DVDs once you put them into your library, I see no problems. I am also not a lawyer.

There are other programs but I'm not familiar with them for archiving DVDs.

Use MediaCoder. It will convert any movies you have to any file format that you want, preferrably .mp4 for movies or .avi. The standard DVD format is .VOB, and you'll have a hard time finding a program that can read those for free. Using MediaCoder you can convert them to the much smaller .mp4 format and put them as data files onto a DVD or actual watchable DVDs.

This model DVD player can play the following disc formats:

DVD-Video (Region 1 or relevant region coded store-bought movies)

DVD-R (must be finalised on appropriate recording equipment for compatible playback)

CD-R (for jpeg/mp3 media files)

CD-RW (for audio such as mp3)

music CD (such as store-bought albums)

This player will NOT accept DVD-RW/+RW discs, or Blu-Ray.

I hope this helps you a tiny bit.

400 disc changer (dvd/cd) has stopped playing the voice tracks from dvd movies. can hear all the rest of the soundtrack.


DVD movies usually send out a digital signal, like dolby digital, and this requires a matching decoder in your receiver in order to hear anything. Regular CDs don't use dolby digital, usually. Check you receiver to make sure it can decode the digital signal, and check your optical or digital coaxial cable.

My DVD not reading DVD movie CD


Is it not reading the disk or not playing DVD movies? If you put a DVD data disk and it reads, then the drive is fine. If it just wont play movies, youre missing a DVD decoder (such as PowerDVD). Try testing other DVD disks and post your findings.

I am a novice with laptops anyway i have a toshiba tecra just put a dvd in and a caption said, cant play this dvd as you have no dvd decoder. Is this something i have to buy or download?


Yes, You will need to purchase a software DVD Player such as the likes of Cyberlink Power DVD or Intervideo WinDVD,

However, Cyberlink and Intervideo sell Windows Media Player DVD Playback codec packages for $14.95 which will allow you to directly play DVD Movies on your PC.

This is not free since there are licensing involved in many decoder codecs.
