    It would depend on the format of the movie.

    Really need more info to assist you. Not sure what program you used to convert the movie. Was it a AVI file and you converted it? Also what software did you use to convert it? Just need more info.

Hi, possible reason is that you just copy it in a format that are not supported by your vcr, try to copy it in a dvd using a dvd maker software like nero, or roxio dvd creator.

Problem with Mintek MDP-1810 Portable DVD Player that will play movie DVDs but not computer burned video DVD


The problem I think is with the burner on your pc. Try re burning on another program like Nero and pay attention to the options. It will ask you if you wish to play disc in all types of players.

How to play DVD on Hp?


Is the movie a store purchased movie or is it a movie that someone copied and gave to you? Computers sometimes have problems reading or playing a dvd or cd that someone else made and gave to you. Try a store purchased music cd or store purchased movie dvd and see if the player plays it.

I have prepared a home movie on Windows Movie Maker and when I copied it to a DVD it would not play on a dvd player can anyone tell me what I did wrong please thanks joe


The reason why the DVD disk you created may not contain the file format the DVD player recognizes. On a normal DVD disk there are two folders - AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders. The video files are located in the VIDEO_TS folder. This video folder contains the VTS_xxx.vob video files (the video files has a .vob extension).
The video file you created may have a avi or wmv or mov or mpg extension, whilst these video files can be played on a computer but they won't play on a DVD player.
Check the movie software you are using and make sure it creates the correct file format for a DVD player.

Video copied to disk but cannot view on PC or other DVD players.


This is the unfortunate thing with copying DVD's. Unfortunately when a DVD is copied only certail players will play it back. I can burn a disk on my laptop and it will play fine in the laptop and on my Sony DVD player, but my Samsung will not read it. This is why when you burn DVD's it's important to find a brand that is read by numerous DVD players. Try using the Sony disks.

Hope this helps.

Can only get DVD audio when hooking it up to Goldstar VCR...


The DVD must be connected with the RCA jacks-plugs [usually black & red] to the INPUT of the VCR, not to the RF connector. You must press the VCR\TV button to VCR so that the VCR takes control.When you place a DVD movie or AUDIO program it could be copied to the VCR. or played through the VCR.
