I am not able to play my movies recorded dvd but cd is working well, help me,,


Insert a DVD movie.
Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse click on the icon for your CD/DVD drive, and click "Explore".
If the hardware is working correctly, you should see a list of files & folders.

Search online for the free 'VLC' software for playing DVD-movies. Download it, and install it, to "play" your DVD-movie.

Audio error


Did you drag the video and audio files.

There is no reason to format a dvd-rw, if you want to use it again
just delete the files on the disk, if you format it, you could cause it to stop working or not accept files.

You format a hard drive to change format, or install a OS.

You don't use format on CD or DVD's just to erace them.

Nero also has an erase option.

The drive & itunes will not read any disc. Even if a disc is put in and the drive is clicked upon it says, 'please insert a disc'


Have had the same problem for a LONG time... the workaround I use:

Open Windows Media Player, go to Tools ---> Options ---> Rip Music Tab ---> Rip Settings (format) ---> choose "mp3" (and choose bitrate, 256 kb/s is a good bit-rate-to-file-size ratio)

Rip the songs to your hard drive as .mp3, close Windows Media Player, and open iTunes....

Go to File ---> Add file to Library ---> find and highlight new .mp3 and hit ok. iTunes will import as .mp3, you can then right-click on the file and convert to .aac if you choose.

Remember, is just a workaround... hope this helps!

My DVD-ROM cant read Video Files


Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for DVD/CDROM Drives, click it and your DVD drive will appear. Right click on it and delete. Restart PC and windows will find your DVD drive again and install it. Try a dvd again and see if it is working, if not it's time to buy a new one i'm afraid, but they are very cheap to replace.
