SOURCE: dvd player

Hi Zekeo, To play DVDs you need a couple of things, a drive capable of reading your DVDs, a program to play them with and the correct Codec (compression/decompression) software to tell the program how to *read* the DVD. The ?no decoder found? error would tend to indicate you don?t have a program capable of playing DVDs installed or its not installed correctly. What program are you trying to play DVDs with? The free versions of Real Player and the newer versions of Media Player will work for the most part (I?ve had more success with Real) but they sometimes have problems decompressing the DVD in order to play it. In that case they typically will try to go to their respective web sites to update themselves and hopefully get the software they need. My experience with these programs is that if they are up to date and have the latest Codec?s they can generally play most N. American commercial DVDs, however, I have been let down at the wrong times by Media Player and occasionally by Real as well Current version of free Real Player (make sure your PC meets the requirements first): http://www.real.com/realcom/R?href=http%3A%2F%2Fforms.real.com%2Freal%2Frealone%2Frealone.html%3Ftype%3Drp10_dlp_1%26bb%3Dtrue%26pcode%3Drn%26opage%3Dreal_superpass%26src%3Drealhome_bb_0_3_1_0_0_1_0%2Creal_superpass%26pageregion%3Dright_bottom_text&pageid=unagi.8083642&pageregion=right_bottom_text&src=realhome_bb_0_3_1_0_0_1_0%2Creal_superpass&pcode=rn&opage=real_superpass Generally I prefer to rely on InterVideo?s WinDVD, for about $40 it?s been a great investment for me: http://www.google.com/search?q=freeware+dvd+player+software&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a Let us know if you have any other question on this topic and please don?t forget to rate the posting.

SOURCE: LG DVD player LG276

I picked up a LG DV276 DVD Player here in Australia but I am from the United States so I own region 1 DVDs. I unlocked my new player by instead 1. Open the tray. 2. Press 0 0 0 0 on the remote and a Menu will appear. 3. Press 0 for region free. 4. Press pause and power off.

I can play everything now, Aussie and US DVDs. Thanks LJ66.

SOURCE: recorded dvds wont play in other dvd players

You have to finalize the disc. if the disc goes to the end it will finalize the disc automatically. If there is some part of the disc not used you have to do it yourself. IN DVD MODE PRESS SETUP, THEN DISC EDIT, THEN FINALIZE. FINALLY PRESS YES. That should do it.

SOURCE: black rectangle at bottom of screen when playing dvds on sony dvd player

Had the same problem but was able to fix it by simply doing the following:
"this is closed captions turned on your TV. get your original TV remote and look for a button that says "Captions" or "CC", and keep pressing it until the TV says "Off". if it doen't have one of those buttons, you will need to get into the menu of the TV and turn off closed captions there. It is probably set on "Text1 or Text 2" right now, and it needs to be set on "Off"

How do I get my laptop to play dvds again it won t work


When you say play DVDs you mean watch DVD movies? Assuming the drive is not broken you need to use the DVD app. You could use VLC Player which you can download. It's an orange traffic cone icon.

My toshiba BDXK100 won't play DVDs other than Blu-Ray


There may be a issue with the assembly, blu-ray plays with more precision and speed, for some reason it is not slowing down to play the regular DVD's may be a padder motor problem.

We have two Pioneer DVD V7400s that won't play DVDs. They can, however, play CDs. Bad laser?


Hi, My guess is that the DVDs are not compatible with the DVD player. They must be windows compatible. WMA or WMV (MP4 format) or (avi) Make sure the your DVD player is indeed a DVD player and not a CD player. Good luck.

Just bought an ONN dvd player and will not play burnt dvds. It says it will play DVD-R/RW. Any ideas to why it won't?


Burn your dvds in a proper way. If you burn your dvds as data dvd, it may not work on certain dvd players. Try different software or different PC to burn your dvds. Check the region code of your dvd player & the dvds burnt. They should match. You may find some region-free players.

My samsung dvd player will not play dvds, but it


Are you trying to playing recordable DVDs (DVD+R or DVD-R) ? if so, try playing original DVDs (the type you rent or buy) those are pressed DVDs - if it works, then your player does not support DVD-R or DVD+R - If you are using a computer burner that supports bitsetting you can change the booktype of a DVD+R to DVD-ROM to fool your player.

If however your player cannot play either DVD-R, DVD+R nor original DVDs and only plays CDs, then your dvd laser diode is finished - there is one for CD and one for DVD, this is rare but happens, there is nothing you can do, any repairs would be very expensive - you are better off getting a new DVD player they are very inexpensive now and any repairs will cost you multiple times a new DVD player.

Hi,
are you trying to play DVDs from a different region ?
PC DVD Drives, are region set to the computer, if you have a region 1 dvd drive, trying to play region 2 dvds et,c. it won,t let you. theres a couple of ways around this. go to Afterdawn ( on the web ) and download a region free dvd device.
Solution 2. try to obtain any updates or re-install windows media player. suggest player version 9 or above.

Mike @ compurepair.

p.s finally is to check that your drive, indeed supports DVD Or certain types of dvd media. i.e DVD+ Or DVD- some only support One type.
