    Thankyou buddy but my problem is not to do with sound. The sound in Media Center plays just fine... But everytime I try to watch either a Demp DVD or a real Disc DVD Media Player stops ans says in a Window *Media Center has stopped working* then it has two tabs , debug, or .close..

    Basically a pain in the neck.. before you suggest.. No I will not reinstall Vista (just did it a month ago) Microsoft or someome must know what is wrong here as others have posted simarlar



    Cheers Mike I hope you can help me?

    thanks buddy but *no go* Im going to persist with finding a way. You would think Compaq Microsoft Vista would have a separate folder for Windows Media Center.... anyway whether I try the Demo Apollo 13 DVD (inside Media Center) or my own DVDs it still stops (after trying momentarily) and says *Windows Media Center* has stopped working



    thanks for your efforts anyway Mickyscott

LG GP40NB40


Are you connecting the unit to your computer or a TV?
If it's the former, what OS does your computer have? Can you access the DVD to read the contents of any optical disc or play back audio CDs? If you can't get any content, then try a different Y USB cable (shorter cables are best). If you still don't get a response, try a different optical drive. The LG GP40NB40 may be faulty. If it is under warranty (1 year), contact LG or return it to the store where you purchased it (usually a 30 day return period).
If you have Windows 8, it doesn't come with the Codecs to play DVDs. (Some new Windows 8 machines will include a program like Cyberlink's PowerDVD. However, not all will.) In that case you need to install an appropriate program to play DVDs. The Win8 Media Player requires an upgrade to Win8 Pro and then the purchase of the Media Center. VLC will play most DVDs http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html . Some DRM issues may interfere. There are other DVD playback programs you can try. (As far as I can tell, the software that LG included with this model is not Win8 compatible for playback of movies.) If you had an older version of Windows and upgraded to Windows 8 Pro, you just need to purchase Media Center. (At least with some machines, the DVD playback software before the upgrade wasn't Win8 compatible and has to be upgraded.)
If you have a different OS, please indicate which one. (XP, Vista and Windows 7 all came with media player codecs for DVDs. Before that, the feature wasn't included.)
If you are connecting to a TV, it isn't designed to play commercial movies. It acts like a flash drive to play videos, display photos, etc. (Thus the limitations are due to the TVs file Codecs. Check the TV documentation.)

I hope this helps.

Media center does not play cds or dvds please help


You have to check your CD/DVD Rom to make sure the device is not faulty.

Open your Windows Explorer, insert any CD/DVD to see whether your CD/DVD is able to read the the disk.

If it cannot read the disk, most probably the CD/DVD rom is faulty and you have to replace it.

Acer aspire 2930 DVD player only opens some dvds


Try Media player classic under k-lite codec pack. Then open video files on the dvd. If it doesn't help try another codec player. If nothing helps could it be that dvd player is not capable of multilayer dvd reading.

Sony DVD-RW DW-D56A drive playing up


I am not posting a solution, but may be the same problem.
I have dell inspiron 510m with DVD - RW sony A 56
It had burnt one DVD till now, but it can NOT burn any more DVDs.
I have tried burning using windows XP-SP2, Nero 6, Nero 8, burn my files 3.01 BUT no use. The only thing I got is different error messages.
I changed many types of DVD-Rom, from sony, benq..trying to rule out the storge media itself as source of error, but again no use.
Astonishingly, it works a CD-ROM Burner very well.
Any suggestions?
