Sounds like your D: drive isn't a DVD-ROM drive.

Have you been able to run DVDs from that drive before?
- If not, then you probably have a standard CD-ROM or CD-RW drive, which is not capable of reading from a DVD. You would have to purchase a DVD-ROM drive in order to play or copy anything from a DVD.
- If you have, let me know so I can help you further.

When a DVD-ram disc put on,it's either say cannot record or play because it's not formated(it's formated and have been recorded played for a long time)or say no disc.


it may be a unsupported format on your dvd player, you could try upgradeing the firmware on your dvd player/burner, or try another dvd drive.

Unsupported format


I have the same problem. When I put in a dvd it tries to read it and then comes back unupported format. What does this mean and why won't it read the dvd?

DVD plays in DVD player is not seen at all by Windows XP


Hi,it's obvious from your problem that the particular disc that cannot be viewed on your computer is of a formatt not supported by the windows XP.some DVDs are of low quality which can be viewed practically on any DVD player but as a result of their low quality and the sensitivity of the Windows they are not recognized by your computer. In as much as other DVDS play on your computer,it means there's no problem with your computer,but an unsupported disc formatt is been trying to be viewed and there's nothing you can do to view a DVD formatt not supported by your computer.please don't be bothered.
Thanks and take care

PLAYING A CD-R ON THE DVD


this one sounds easy
ok lets look at the cd's-r your using are they brand new
and if brand new
then i would say that cd's and dvd's are coming out with new formats so that new cd's dvd's wont play in older equipment

now the other thing could be software and how the files movies or music was put onto the disc sometime software needs upgrade to support files on disc

is cd-r recognized by the dvd player as what i mean does it allow cd-r's to be played on the dvd player is this format supported

Format unsupported


So funny mine just started doing the same exact thing. I put a DVD in and it says format unsupported. Then I turn it off take the disc out and try it again. Seems to always work the second time around

Not recognizing DVD player


i would say for some reason your dvd player is not compatible from now on with that brand of blank dvd!


get the firmware update from the brand website all you do is download the file burnit on a cd and put it in the dvd player should fix most and eventual problems

"wrong disc" message


Since the device is new, I suggest that you take it back to the shop, ask for a replacement and check it while in the shop to make sure its working. This is assuming that you made sure that you're trying to play the correct format discs. Consult the manual on which format DVD's it can support. Its multi-region so that can't be the problem, but its possible that you're trying to play other unsupported formats. Try also playing other discs - audio discs, DVDs, DIVX etc... make sure the disc isn't scratched badly. But the bottom line is you shouldnt have problems on the first day, take it back. Good luck!
