Will not connect with my pc

I would recommend you to install the Software of the DVR System properly.
The System is provided with the installation CD. Only matter when such DVR'S are needed for the cctv camera with ir illuminators.
Follow the steps:
1) Insert the mini CD into a CD/DVD ROM drive on your computer.
2) If your CD/DVD ROM drive does not auto run the CD; click MY COMPUTER click on the drive the CD is in and double click on the "D9-VIEWER-DBG-ENG.EXE" file.
This will definitely help you.

Usb on bd610 lg won't work

I don't understand this term: "choose either dvd or usb menu". Do you mean instead ""choose either dvd or cd menu? I've used many usb hard drives and I've never seen such a "menu".

I want to watch a dvd through normal cd rom do u know any software which allows us to

You would need to upgrade your CD-Rom drive to a DVD CD-Rom drive
you would need to rip, then convert the video file from the DVD and burn onto a regular CD. Durring this process you would also have to convert the file.

If this was helpful please rate with a 4 thumbs up!! Thanks for using!!

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?

CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

Need the cd-rom exchange for dvd

If the software comes on a DVD I would assume that the files contained on the disc are just too big to fit on a CD. Have you considered changing your (old) cd-rom drive for an up to date dvd burner drive? You can buy an 18 speed DVD burner for around £20 these days and installing an optical drive is one of the easiest upgrade jobs you can do on a PC. Simply a matter of removing the old drive and then installing the new one and reattaching the cables.......

DVD & CD drives not recognized after uninstall Nero

plain reinstallation of windows won't solve the problem, either you edit your registry to clean it up of all the nero entries or to install windows in clean mode, I mean, you need to reformat or remove windows completely first fron your system.
