Re: need a mp3 player for linux

Please don't give up on Linux. It plays mp3's. There are a whole lot of mp3 players out there for Linux. Most of the linux's I have used been able to play mp3's out of the box without installing anything. I have Ubuntu and it defaults to musicbox which is nice. Tell me what version of Linux you have and I'll hook you up.

If your DVD's came from overseas or is a copy, they may not play in the player. I have the same problem with playing certain DVD's in my Linux computer. Although they will play in my oldest DVD player. It is due to the copyright protection software that is encoded on the DVD,

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.

Dvd not playing dvds

Basic Information:

i) try to choose  right burner for eg: Nero CD/DVD Burner

ii) try to choose the right format,

     for eg: MP3/MP4/ Audio Songs will come under Audio format
               in such case select "Audio CD/DVD format" in Nero CD/DVD Burner

     for eg: .DAT/MPEG/MP4/Video will come under Video format

                in such case select "Video CD/DVD format" in Nero CD/DVD Burner

     for eg: "DATA CD format" is only storing some data on CD/DVD iresspective whether it is                            Videofile or Audio file, 

                these "DATA CD formated" CD/DVD when played in DVD Player will play only Audio files 
                but no Video Files

Hi camonk2004,

It's interesting that your DVD player was purchased in Russia but plays Region 1 DVDs. Region 1 is North America. Does your Player also play Russian DVDs (region 5)? If so, then it has probably been modified to play DVDs from multiple regions.

Check the back side of the DVD player - the rear panel should have a Region number on it. If the region number is 1, then try playing a Region 5 DVD. If it reads the DVD, then the modification that was done in Russia will probably allow it to read any DVD. IF the Region 5 DVD won't play (or if it is ejected automatically), then your player's region control os still intact, and it will only play DVDs from the same region as the one listed on the rear panel of the player (or DVDs marked "ALL").

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind Regards,

My Poloroid DVD will play the Commercial DVDs like Fiox & Hound and Stuart Little, but suddenly will not play the 30 minute PBS Kids Songs DVDs and the Little Einstein Dvds-they played fine before, but I...

I read the other people's problems with the same type DVD player and discovered that the player is only covered by a 30 day warranty...and it would cost more to fix than it is worth. I will just never buy another Poloroid......a lesson learned! I will use our laptop to play the 30 minute DVD's that the player won't play and when the player dies, it dies!
