SOURCE: Acer LAptops Optiarc DVD Player plays VCD but no DVD.

Only way to make sure it's the drive is to test it in another machine. If it's the drive just buy a new one, it'll cost more to repair in time alone!

My IBM R51 laptop can't read any other cd/vcd


Hello,

its either its a lens problem or that was how the CD/DVD Drive was made.

There are some drives that doesn't play white face discs, that is, they select disc and don't play all CD's, so maybe yours fall under this category.

How long have you been using your laptop and has it ever played Cd/Vcd's before?

If it plays them before, then it means your drive's lens is weak, but if it has never played them before, then it means that's how the player was made.

Which ever way, you still have an option of replacing the drive if you wish.

Take care.

Unlock my DVD player to watch VCD's.


VCD's do not have "regions" specification. The DVD player either can play VCD's, or cannot play VCD's. It's a format that is not very popular among manufacturers. I have two players that both play my VCD's, but I had to make sure they accepted that format before I bought them. This player accepts DVD and CD's but it did not say VCD's. It's kind of a proprietary format that was only really popular overseas. The PHILIPS DVP5140 is one that I just found that does play pretty much everything.

There is nothing wrong with it, it is set to only play in the region it was purchased from. That is how all DVD players are made, with regional settings. No repair is going to help, you just need a DVD player from the proper region to play those disc's.

How can i change the format that my "magix Photostory CD & DVD" program burns my pictures/music to a DVD that WILL play on a home DVD player and not just a computer? I have a Windows XP


There are three ways to create a Video CD (VCD) that contains your photo stories:
You can obtain Microsoft Plus! Digital Media Edition and view the Photo Story 3-authored WMV file in Photo Story 2 by going to Play your story or create a video CD of your story and then create a VCD.using the Photo Story 2 Video CD-burning feature.
• You can obtain Microsoft Digital Image Suite 10 or above and view the Photo Story 3-authored WMV file in the Photo Story that comes with the Digital Image Library and save and burn to VCD.
• You can obtain VCD-authoring products that work with Photo Story files, such as MyDVD by Sonic Solutions or InstantCD\DVD by Pinnacle Systems. You can use these software to convert the Windows Media video (WMV) files into files that can be copied to a DVD and played in a DVD player.
Note: VCD and DVD-authoring software is not included with Photo Story 3.
