Hi! I have a TruTech PVS-12701 Portable DVD and I was wondering if it can play movies from CDs as well. What movie formats does it support? I have old movies on VCD that I want to watch it says that it is...


Hi biorgs .


It seems that your DVD player does not support anything else but a DVD.

What you can do is copy the video files from the VCDs to your computer's hard disk and burn them in a DVD so that it can read them , that would be a good idea to make use of your dvd player to view your VCDs in them.

You can use a dvd burning software if you have a dvd writer in your pc for this purpose.

To download a trial version of such a software called nero you can click on the below link and follow instructions further.

Hope this helps ..:)

How do i upgrade my e machine w 3107 to play dvds


It looks like your machine already has a DVD drive. So all you would need is some software that will play DVD. Download and install VLC (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/). VLC is a great multimedia player that plays most multimedia files as well as DVDs, Audio CDs and VCDs.

I CAN PLAY BLURAY,DVD,ACD,MP3,DATA CDS BUT ICANNOT PLAY VCDS


These days the players are very sensitive and do not accept DVD/CDs which are not compatible with their settings. There for it is not accepting VCDs which you want to play. Check he format of VCD, also check if it is not pirated. This is a common technical problem.

Which disc can be used to recrord on ?


According to the user manual, the following DVD media you can record with this unit are:

RECORDING: TYPES OF DISCS YOU CAN USE FOR RECORDING

DVD+R 2.4x, 4x, or 8x ONLY; DVD+RW 2.4x and 4x ONLY.

NOTES:
It is NOT possible to record on CD-R or CD-RW discs.
IMPORTANT: It is NOT possible to record content that is copy-protected. This is usually true for most pre-recorded DVD discs and most pre-recorded VHS tapes.

PLAYBACK: TYPES OF DISCS YOU CAN PLAY

DVD discs - DVD movie discs (DVD-ROM); DVD+R; DVD+RW; DVD-RW (must be recorded using video mode or VM); DVD-R (must be recorded using video mode or VM and must be finalized).
CDs (Audio CDs, CD-R, CD-RW) - Audio CDs contain musical or sound content only. mp3 discs are CDs (CD-R or CD-RW)
that contain mp3 files. This product also plays CDs that contain JPEG files and Multisession CDs.
Video CD (VCD) and Super Video CD (S-VCD) discs - Like DVD video discs, VCDs contain picture and sound content. The difference is the amount of information that can be stored on the disc.
VCDs typically have lower picture and sound quality than DVD discs.
Super Video CDs (S-VCDs) can be used to record up to 70 minutes of digital sound and video, with MPEG-2 standard video and MPEG-1 standard audio-but you must use DVD+R or DVD+RW discs to record on your DVD/VCR not S-VCDs.
Additionally, S-VCD disc compatibility is dependent on which MPEG coding software, disc design software, and disc writer software are used; and the discs themselves.

(The above information is extracted from the user manual for this particular model and is a guide only)

I find it very strange that the user manual does not provide any information about DVD-R recording since this is a DVD recorder. I guess you could try those types of discs in it, otherwise it will playback finalised DVD-R discs recorded/burned in another machine.

I assume you have the original manual for this unit. If not, you may be able to download it free from various sites. (retrevo may have it but they may ask you for email address prior to downloading)

I hope the above information helps a tiny bit with regard to DVD formats for this unit.

My LG DVD writer GSA-H55N not detecting CDs and some DVDs


Some DVD/CD drivers have two lasers: one for DVD and the other for CD. Not sure if this is your case but looks like the laser for CD discs is gone. The only way to repair it to replace the pickup mechanism. Anyway, it's hard to diagnose your issue as it may be caused by drivers, dust, software that interferes with the CD/DVD drivers, etc.

Make sure you have DVD playing software installed, such as Cyberlink Power DVD. The software would have come with your computer or DVD drive at the time of purchase. If you do not have specific DVD playing software, VideoLAN Player is a good free alternative, which you can download from http://www.videolan.org
