Philips DVD +RW & CD-R/RW driver

I have a Philips DVD+RW & CD-RW driver No CD RW 5232PI installed in a Windows XP PC. The drive will play discs but I have one DVD video that it will not play or recognise. The disc I believe is OK because it will play on other Pc's and DVD players. The disc can be in the drive but the PC does not realise that it is there. A test on the drive reports that it is working properly and I have updated the decoder.
I would be grateful for any help that you may be able to offer.
Thank you, J Lee.

Why won't a CD-RW disc play in my car CD player?

Some of the older cd players, car or otherwise, just aren't capable of recognizing CD-RW's. The player in my 10 year old Ford Mondeo doesn't, but the updated model player in the newer Mondeo does play CD-RW's.

This could be a problem with a driver. Try going to the phillips site and follow the step by step driver download instructions.

Also the dvd drive may be working but windows may not be playing the dvd because it does not have a default program to load it with. Open windows media player and then insert the dvd and see if anything happens.

Can movie be burn in cd-rw??

A cd-rw would normally hold 500MB of data. A normal movie would need about 3-4 GB of data. You get programs that would save the movie on CD-RW as a VCD with compression to fit in lesser number of CDs. But you will not find many players that would play the cd-rw with the VCD format movie.

Best to use the DVD discs.

Purchased a 10 pack of dvd-rw discs, 2 work and 8 dont what to do

You won't get any satisfaction contacting memorex. Before you take them back to the store, go online and check for a firmware upgrade for your dvd/cd drive. It's also possible that your burner has a dirty lens. If you can't upgrade your firmware/driver and the lens is clean, I'd bring the pack back to the store.

Samsung portable dvd player

those kinda players wont play DVD rom disks and certain ones that are made up. DVD-RAM or ROM wont work. Try blowing inside the player for any dust. if it still doesnt work its the maufacters problem. The player will play CD-G audio only, not graphics The ability to play back DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, CD-R, CD-RW, and CD-Jpeg discs may depend on recording conditions.
