    My Acer notebook will not play DVDs. Window Media Player asked me to download a DVD program online, then a JPEG, then a zip file, then a converter, which I did, then it said to reduce my resolution and color, which I also did. It still doesn't work and says "reduce resolution and color" all the time.

    I have the same problem and it does show up in the device manager. I checked the drivers and tried to rollback when it did work once and still nothing.

    I tried also to download (OMNIPATCHER) which was suggested on another site and no luck. HELP!!!!!!

Media center does not play cds or dvds please help

You have to check your CD/DVD Rom to make sure the device is not faulty.

Open your Windows Explorer, insert any CD/DVD to see whether your CD/DVD is able to read the the disk.

If it cannot read the disk, most probably the CD/DVD rom is faulty and you have to replace it.

I hav lg dvd writer it plays cd but dvd what to do

That is because of a dirty or defective lens. When you have a lens problem the unit may still play CD but not DVDs.

Try first using a lens cleaner disk, like the ones here.

If that does not work, the unit must be disassembled, and lense cleaned with q tips and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. See below:

Please insert a disk into drive

You can only copy files to a blank disk by using programs like NERO or by using a re-writeable disk like DVD-RW which you can format and use it like a hard drive. You need also burner not an ordinary DVD or CD 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.
