DVD shrink is a good program to use. I use it to make an 8gig dvd movie fit on a 4.7gig dvd.The downside is you will have to use the player in dvd shrink to play the program.

Windows 8 won't play rental dvd


It may seem obvious, but to many it is not. To many new notebook computer owners, it is not as easy as it looks to play DVDs in their new Acer laptops. In my line of work, I get this question frequently. So here are a few quick, simple steps to get you on your way to be able to play DVDs in Acer laptops.

Check to see if your Acer laptop has the capability to play DVDs. It will be branded with the familiar white DVD logo on the outside of the drive. This is located directly side of the laptop and has a button on the DVD drive. If it is not adorned with the DVD logo, you will be limited to only playing CDs. Push the button on your Acer once you have located the DVD drive with the logo. This creates a springing motion to eject the DVD drive. Place any DVD face up in the tray and gently push it back into your Acer laptop and then wait for it to start automatically or for a menu to appear. If the DVD in your Acer laptop will not start automatically, (or when you see the menu of choices) you will need to set it up to play automatically. In Microsoft Windows, click start, control panel, hardware and sound and then select autoplay. If you have Windows Vista Home Basic Edition, Windows Media and Real Player may not play the DVDs correctly. You may want to download a free media player from download.com. http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html Place a tick in either windows software or the all software box on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE: Media Player you might have to try a few times to get it right You will then have to manually play the DVDs each time. Choose the action you wish Windows to perform each time you play a DVD on the acer laptop(from the dropdown menu). You will have at least two media players to choose from, or you can simply choose "take no action" which is good if you are not using the media player choices in that menu. Eject the DVD and reinsert it into your Acer laptop. All your DVDs should now play successfully with your chosen media player each time. Locate the controls on the bottom of your screen. They are standard DVD controls as well as a counter should you need to adjust volume or pause the DVD. You can press F11 for full screen view if you no longer need controls and are ready to watch your DVD.

In this case i think you need to restore it from a pre-made cd/DVD or image supplied with the laptop or created from laptop.

Most recovery cd's are hardcoded to the original equipment installed at the time of build. Unless you have the full program version dvd for windows vista it will not allow you to install to new equipment. Sorry.

Dvd player will not play, DVD from the UK


You could use a program meant to dupe, or change, your DVD-ROM's region code. These are independent, third-party programs so don't trust everything you see. Read reviews; a simple Google search can aid you with that. "Change DVD Region"

Alternatively, you could possibly change the DVD region of your drive from within Windows. If you opt to do this (if you can), the region will need to be changed back for viewing US DVDs.

These instructions are for XP. For Vista, it shouldn't be too different.
-Go into DEVICE MANAGER double-click on your DVD drive (likely "D:") under the DVD/CD DEVICES tree
-The third tab of the Properties window should be DVD REGION
-Voila!

If you need to know how to get to DEVICE MANAGER:
-START menu --> CONTROL PANEL--> SYSTEM
-The HARDWARE tab has a link to the DEVICE MANAGER

Acer aspire 2930 DVD player only opens some dvds


Try Media player classic under k-lite codec pack. Then open video files on the dvd. If it doesn't help try another codec player. If nothing helps could it be that dvd player is not capable of multilayer dvd reading.
