Judy Zabicki:
Hi Judy.
Have these created movies always done this since made, or only recently?
If since they were made, it may be a video-format or rendering problem.
If this, then what I did was to save a short video clip as various formats, then name each saved copy by its format type eg MPEG1.MPG, AVIPAL.AVI, MKV.AVI, DVDVOB.VOB, and so on.
Some DVD's don't render or burn 100% every time, as I've found after trashing several. I think RAM and latency contribute.

When inshirting movies dvd in dvd player showing message on dvd players screen no disc and cant play movies dvd why?

it could be the disc itself dvds really don't age that well a common problem is that one day they just decide to freeze and stop working even though they had only been played a few times the most extreme would be your situation. I would suggest trying newer dvds out if same problem occurs then it is a problem with the dvd player.

LG DVD player. Playing DVDs (even new out of the box movies) the picture freezes for between 10 sec - 60 secs. DVD has hardly been used since new and I have used a lazer cleaner on the DVD tono effect.

Try to clean the lens of your player and the cd.If they freezes again,Maybe the lens of your DVD player have not good enough its better to replace lens

Some computers do not come with dvd software installed.Do you have a dvd drive installed?If no software for dvd installed you can also use windows media player or realplayer to play dvds.Click start button,control panel then autoplay.Under dvd movie choose player you like to use and click save.Try inserting dvd again to check for playback.

Philips HTS3565D dvd player, recent Paramount DVDs (Star Trek and Transformers 2) freeze during the Paramount DVD introduction at the exact same spot: as the stars are flying in toward the camera's view....

I have the same problem, though I don't recall which exact movies. They were all from Blockbuster. Sometimes they start to play and then halt at the end of track 1 and sometimes don't even make it tot he menu. The same movie will play on our portable dvd player. A Philips rep told me about 6 weeks ago it was a problem with a new security feature on some movies and to watch the website for a possible firmware upgrade to fix it. Now you can't even talk to someone at Philips so I don't know what to think. The "live chat" folks just want to tell you to take it to a repair shop - not much help there.

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
thanks and good luck

DVD Freezes during playback

it might be that you are playing a dual layer dvd in the player. The player needs to focus on the second layer of the movie, and that might be why the dvd freezes. Leave it there for a while and the dvd should continue if it is this situation.
