DVD player won't recognize movies in drive D

I bought the e-machine a couple of years ago and DVD's worked fine. I think it was a TRIAL copy of the progrom to view them, though. Now I have purchased the SAME software, but I don't know what I need to do to make it work. I have downloaded it (PowerDVD 5), but it says the movies aren't recognized. They're brand-new movies, so it's not the movie.

    Thanks for trying! I did download CODECS but it didn't work, either. I don't know much about computers so I don't know how to fix it..just stumble upon something. I think the e-machines are junk, though, because my bootable disc won't work AT ALL, either. (Par for the course since the DVD player won't recognize ANYTHING.) I tried to get help..they suggested I buy a new computer. Con artists.

It may be a case of downloading "CODECS" for the the software to be able to recognize the new movies. It's an anti-piracy technique that require frequent updates to view DVD's on computers to try to eliminate copying.

Hi gregschirk,
I bought the same model and I am experiencing a similar problem. My HDMI components worked fine before. Now both my cable box and DVD player will not be recognized as HDMI systems. It thinks they are DVI to HDMI connections. Good picture but no sound. Would like to know if there is a fix for this.
Thanks Gilbo72

Dvd drive does not recognize a dvd movie or a blank dvd gateway m-7315u it scans some after a few minutes it stops menu does not open or it won't play a movie


the lens is gone bad in the drive... you can replace the lens but it costs more and also will not be worth...it will play for another 3 months and will give the same problem...for replacing the lens you wll spend Rs.600, but a new player you can bought for Rs.1000 so my advice is to better go and buy a new player with atleast an year of warranty and use it completely for one year...

How do I burn a dvd movie from the Movie Maker so we can watch it on a regular dvd player


Burning a DVD is not all that simple. Some Emachines come with a DVD player drive but not burner. Just because your system has windows movie maker on it does not mean it can actually produce them. You need to make sure it actually has a DVD writer on it and not just a player.

If so I would definatly look into some additional software for making DVDs as movies maker is flakyand not all that great. If you are not finding the option to burn the movie in movie maker the changes are you do not have a DVD burner insalled but just a DVD player drive.

A content on DVD disk is not visible


Can you play the DVD's in a DVD player that is attached to a TV? Most DVD players will play an AVI file....Keep in mind that data will only last for 5 years on any CD or DVD......if it is stored correctly.....Heat Kills.....Let me know if you can get it to play on a regular DVD player...(NON PC)

System Error


FYI...the best suggestion I've seen is to hold the channel up and play buttons simutaneously....thereby causing the machine to return to the "factory initialized" state. So far so good for me. We'll see. photog1
