You can try and clean the lazer and the 2 chrome rails that the lazer moves along as it reads the disk.To clean the lazer use get some Isopropanol from your local chemist.Use a cotton bud NOT SOAKED with a small amount of Isopropanol and gently clean the glass using a circular motion and and polish with a clean and dry cotton bud.To clean the rails use special fine machine oil. Do not use WD40 as it contains water.Hope this helps you. Regards Bill
Are you burning the files with a DVD+R format. Use DVD-R. Not all players will recognize DVD+R. Also, check the region that the movies are made in and see if the player can be switched to that region. Also, are you trying to burn files larger than 700 MB. If you are, in creating an iso image or copy if you are downloading the file you have to match the checksum of the original file to the downloaded one.
email me at email@example.com and be more specific as to wether or not thats a popup message or the media player is telling you that. if its the media player, then you might try going to www.freedownloads.com and type in the search area (codec pack) then download that and install it. then at the same site load a media player thats called (media player classic) these 2 installs combined should play any type of dvd one the market without fail. if you need any further assistance please feel free to mail me. bill fox
If your computer recognizes a disc in the drive and operates normally, Id assume you would need a DVD player or codec to be able to actually watch the DVD. PowerDVD rings a bell.
Have you tired that? I know Windows Media Player by default wont let you watch a movie without first downloading a codec.
have you setup the boot order to cdrom first?.. also is the cd 100% bootable? i use imgburn.com to burn a memtest86.com bootable cd ISO file inside the zip file i extracted. i had to use a tool once called filtercheck i got it from cdr-zone.com in the forums by searching for filtercheck.. theres 2 versions one says check other says removal. the removal will say found some filters. i removed all and its all ok .. had to reinstall burning application though.
If there were compatability issues with the disc it would have been unable to burn to the dvd initially, the problems you mention are a sign that the reading in the dvd is failing and there's never a solution for problems as these, as it means that a replacement is needed, as the dvd writer arent worth repairing.
I had the same thing exactly, but after a while it wouldnt even acknowledge that i had a writable dvd in the drive, but was ok with cd's.
I think it is down to poor quality lasers, so as to keep the dvd writer prices down.
