Play dvd on laptop

I have made DVDs both analog and digital with the included burner.
They play fine on the equipment.
But when I try to play them on my laptop HP pavillion dv9000 my laptop doesn't recognice the DVDs.
Do i need any special codec or is there anything else I can do?

    Thanks chicka

    I use -R

    Not certain about which mode

  • Carolus Dec 16, 2007


    Is there any way you know of how to ''fool'' another device to accept and play an unfinalised disk?

    Or do I have to start from scratch and look happy all the same...

    -R is usally Video mode

    You must finalise the disk before you can use it in another device.

I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1300 Laptop with an NEC DVD+-RW ND-6650A CD/DVD reader/writer. Also using Showbiz DVD2 to burn backups of VHS tapes I can create single layer DVDs fine. However, when I try to...

how long is the whole process of burning the dual layer dvd's
your computers hard drive might be getting to hot
try blowing out all of the dust from your laptop computers keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.
dust causes static which causes lots of unforseen problems with a computer and its parts
also you might buy a laptop usb 3 fan cooler pad just to keep things cool/er
you might check the leads ((motherboard to hard drive)) they might be bad/faulty
hope this helps

I have a Sony Vaio desktop with XP. My DVD-CD

Have you tried burning a CD in the new drive? Because the drive is a DVD it will always be recognised as a DVD, but should work perfectly well with CDs both playing and recording.

Cannot copy dvds or cds with my duplicator

Hey! Usually, DVDs have some protections which prevent DVD users copying DVDs freely. Theser protections include CSS protection, region code protection etc. Therefore, you need to remove DVD protections first if you want to copy DVDs. There are some DVD Copy software which can do this. I have a good luck with this DVD Copy which works fine. You can have a try if you like.
Hope that helps.

Dvds recorded on video to dvd recorder wont play elsewhere

Mosr DVD recorders have a "compatible" setting or require you to "finalise" the disc. Check that is being done.

It's also worth checking that the laptop will play other DVDs sometimes you need a codec.

Dvd burner plays dvd's and cd's fine, will burn cd's but will not burn dvd's

Unless you have one of the very latest laptops, your model laptop most likely has a DVD ROM combo drive - which allows you to play DVDs and CDs also burn CDs/
You need to give me the make and model number of your laptop for me to verify if your laptop is capable of burn DVDs.

Help with my cd player/burner

There could be several things which are causing your CD burner not to act in the way it should.

I had a similar type problem after installing Windows XP, .Service Pack 3 onto my Sony VAIO model VGN-SZ330P.
The standard Windows burner kept saying there was no CD in the drive but it would play both CDs and DVDs.

I went looking for an alternative and now use IMGBURN which is a free lightweight CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning application . You can find it at

I also installed CDBurnerXP which is another free application to burn CDs and DVDs, including Blu-Ray and HD-DVDs. It also includes the feature to burn and create ISOs, as well as a multilanguage interface. You can find it at

The above does not tell you why your burner is having problems (and they could be numerous), it will certainly get the burner doing everything you need.
