Have you tried this on another computer and does it work then? If not try that first. Secondly, disconnect all other usb devices as it may be that you are draining too much from your usb hub which means the dvd drive won't function or will function abnormally. Also check your firmware by visiting the manufacturers website. Give these a shot then get back to us to let us know.
Best of luck

Down loaded flip video to disc. Disc will not play on TV but will play on computer


Hello. There are a few factors as to what would allow or disallow the disc to play. The main reason is going to be the file type the video was saved as. Your computer will have an easy time playing because it can recognize the file type. As for DVD players or TV's with built in DVD players the device will have be able to recognize the file type and know how to play it. For example some DVD players may play a DivX movie but not an AVI. So your player probably doesn't recognize the file type you are wanting it to play. One other possibility is the disc wasn't finalized when burned.

I have a Sony DVD DRU-820A burner. When I insert a dvd--either a blank one to burn or a DVD disc to view--the name of the drive switches from DVD-RAM Drive (D:) to CD Drive (D:). The burner no longer burns...


The device is _partially_ broken -- the part that reads/writes DVD media is "dead".

Spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" unit.

Make my memorex mvd2040 play homemade dvds (avi files on a disc ) ?


In order for you to make the unit read home movies, you haveto make sure the AVI files are being converted to a DVD format. If the video isnot transcoded to that format, the player will not recognize the disc. You willneed to use a burning application that converts the files prior to burning it,or get software that converts files to DVD and then burns it to a disc.

Sony DVD+R AccuCORE disc recorded on HP dv4-2045dx laptop notebook will not play on Bose 321 system Get disc incompatible message What can I do?


Sometimes dvd players will have problems playing certain types of recordable discs. You might need to switch from the Sony brand and try a different one. Also there are DVD+R and DVD-R types. The Bose might have issues trying to play a "+" type disc. Also make sure that the disc is being properly "finalized" by the burning software you are using so the Bose system will recognize the disc. The burning software I use is called Nero Burning Rom and it is very easy to use. It allows you to control the burning for various applications and can help with "problem discs". If you are able to play other burnable discs in the Bose and the Sony discs are the only one giving you the problems then it is probably just that brand and you will not be able to use them with your Bose. And just a note some older DVD burners can only burn "+" type discs or "-" type discs but not both. Your computer according to the specifications from HP should not have a problem burning both types as long as the drive is the original.

Samsung dvd recorder model vr-325


Ok I have been here before. The problem is your DVD burner in your DVD player unit may not be burning the disk in a format recognized by the Computer, or the laser may not have burned the disk to the set standard, and while it can play on that DVD player when you move it to a nother player it will not play. Well what we can do is Test the reverse first. Burn a DVD on your computer and try to play it on your DVD player and on the other TV. Then what I want you to do is to clean the lens of the player and try to burn a disk and play it on your computer. Let me know how this truns out.
