Question about Intervideo WinDVD 5 for PC

1 Answer

Hi, My Sony Vaio DVD Windows Vista computer will play some DVDs without difficulty, others it refuses to play at all, and on others, it will play all of the movie except for five minutes in the middle. When it refuses to play a DVD, it makes a loud rattling noise, and the screen turns gray. It continues to do this until the disc is taken out. Sometimes an error message sign comes up saying the copyright is wrong, and other times no sign comes up. On DVD seasons for TV shows, it will sometimes play all the discs in the season but one. Once in a while, it will do this with a CD, though not often; and some CDs it doesnt even recognize and says no disc. Please help!

Having a problem getting my Sony Vaio PCG-3E2L laptop to auto play my photo DVD slide show. Using Windows Vista Home Premium OS.Also, where can I find a PDF Sony User Manaul for my laptop?


A quick short cut is to open a browser if you use Internet Explorer and select tools menu, then select Internet options. When the box opens then select the advanced tab and scroll down until you see a check box under security and check allow active content from CD to run on my computer.

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 http://www.imgburn.com/.

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 http://cdburnerxp.se/en/home

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.
