Put a DVD disk into the drive.
Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse click on the icon for the CD/DVD drive.
Click "Explore".
If a window opens, then your hardware can read the DVD media.
If not, then you need to replace the CD/DVD drive.

Then, you need software, such as the _free_ 'VLC' software,
downloadable from the Internet, to play DVD-videos on your computer.

Hi! I have a TruTech PVS-12701 Portable DVD and I was wondering if it can play movies from CDs as well. What movie formats does it support? I have old movies on VCD that I want to watch it says that it is...


Hi biorgs .


It seems that your DVD player does not support anything else but a DVD.

What you can do is copy the video files from the VCDs to your computer's hard disk and burn them in a DVD so that it can read them , that would be a good idea to make use of your dvd player to view your VCDs in them.

You can use a dvd burning software if you have a dvd writer in your pc for this purpose.

To download a trial version of such a software called nero you can click on the below link and follow instructions further.

My DVD Player ( ONIDA DFX-7100) is now unable to play any VCDs. I have tried many VCDs which were earlier working fine but now they won'tplay. The player keeps displaying the ''loading'' message and after...


Have you changed programs that you use to burn VCDs?
(Perhaps the program was updated?)

Perhaps trying a different program to make the VCD will work for you.

Also; when is the last time you cleaned the DVD player lens?

Which disc can be used to recrord on ?


According to the user manual, the following DVD media you can record with this unit are:

RECORDING: TYPES OF DISCS YOU CAN USE FOR RECORDING

DVD+R 2.4x, 4x, or 8x ONLY; DVD+RW 2.4x and 4x ONLY.

NOTES:
It is NOT possible to record on CD-R or CD-RW discs.
IMPORTANT: It is NOT possible to record content that is copy-protected. This is usually true for most pre-recorded DVD discs and most pre-recorded VHS tapes.

PLAYBACK: TYPES OF DISCS YOU CAN PLAY

DVD discs - DVD movie discs (DVD-ROM); DVD+R; DVD+RW; DVD-RW (must be recorded using video mode or VM); DVD-R (must be recorded using video mode or VM and must be finalized).
CDs (Audio CDs, CD-R, CD-RW) - Audio CDs contain musical or sound content only. mp3 discs are CDs (CD-R or CD-RW)
that contain mp3 files. This product also plays CDs that contain JPEG files and Multisession CDs.
Video CD (VCD) and Super Video CD (S-VCD) discs - Like DVD video discs, VCDs contain picture and sound content. The difference is the amount of information that can be stored on the disc.
VCDs typically have lower picture and sound quality than DVD discs.
Super Video CDs (S-VCDs) can be used to record up to 70 minutes of digital sound and video, with MPEG-2 standard video and MPEG-1 standard audio-but you must use DVD+R or DVD+RW discs to record on your DVD/VCR not S-VCDs.
Additionally, S-VCD disc compatibility is dependent on which MPEG coding software, disc design software, and disc writer software are used; and the discs themselves.

(The above information is extracted from the user manual for this particular model and is a guide only)

I find it very strange that the user manual does not provide any information about DVD-R recording since this is a DVD recorder. I guess you could try those types of discs in it, otherwise it will playback finalised DVD-R discs recorded/burned in another machine.

I assume you have the original manual for this unit. If not, you may be able to download it free from various sites. (retrevo may have it but they may ask you for email address prior to downloading)

I hope the above information helps a tiny bit with regard to DVD formats for this unit.

My dvd player reads CDs, VCDs, MP3s but fails to read DVDs. What should I do?


That is the spindle motor that is weak. Try replacing the motor. Cd,mp3 vcd requires low speeds while dvd are high speeds.

Dvd player


You might be able to convert them to DVD-Video format if you've got a DVD burner and the right software.

Another possible option would be converting them to a Video CD/Super Video CD if the DVD player can play Video CDs or Super Video CDs and you have a CD burner and software that can burn VCDs/SVCDs

Sony Internal DVD no audio output when playing DVDs


Since the audio is actually part of the video stream and your Video software decodes that, I would say you need to re-install whatever program you're using. On a side note, if it's a recorded DVD, you may have to use the program's setup to select the correct Audio.

Hope that helps...

DVD player cannot read the disk


Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Cds and VCDs don't require as much laser power to be read correctly. Usually when you can read CDs but not DVDs, the optics are starting to fail.

Make sure you have DVD playing software installed, such as Cyberlink Power DVD. The software would have come with your computer or DVD drive at the time of purchase. If you do not have specific DVD playing software, VideoLAN Player is a good free alternative, which you can download from http://www.videolan.org
