This will be a problem with either the DVD decoding software, or the DVD reader inside the DVD drive. It's common for a CD/DVD combo drive to have the DVD end go out. If you have access to an external DVD drive connect it and see if it plays DVD's. If it does, then it's the DVD drive, if it doesn't, then it's a software issue. If you don't have access to an external, you can try uninstalling and reloading the decoding software or try different decoding software. You should be able to find software at filehippo.com, don't worry about it being burning software, in order to burn it has to decode first.

Hello my Dell Studio 1435, it can read CD but not reading DVD... it give noise when i put DVD..


Try using a good quality DVD cleaner first. The lens for cd/dvd are different so one may work if the other is dirty. If cleaning does not work then the dvd lens may be out of alignment or broke. With today's prices it is cheaper to replace the drive $30-40 than try to repair it. Hope this helps.

Please try to update your codec in your Windows Media Player to ensure that the Windows Media Player will read the data in the Disk. Also you can download different types of player that has bundled with complete codec. Please try to download K-Lite Codec Pack Player or VLC Player.

Please select the version of your player that supports your current operating system. Then Begin to download nyh clicking the download link or button.

My DVD burner stopped working...but will still copy cd


Hello,

Please try to clean your DVD Disk Drive using a CD or DVD Disk Cleaner to clean the laser lens of the DVD Disk Drive like dust, dirt and other small particles that causes the lens hard to read or eventually not read the laser lens. IF you don't have a Disk cleaner you can find it in any computer shop or video shop in your place.

Dvd wont play, it says check dvd drive status, never tried playing a dvd before


Hello,

regarding on your problem my friend, please check if your dvd drive is reading your dvd disk? if it reads then check the software you are using to play the DVD. Try to see if your Media Player has the correct Video Codec to support your DVD that you want to play. If you player has no Codec that supports the minimum requirements of the DVD to play, you can download it in the net using www.google.com. Please click the link that leads you to google then search for the right codec that can support your DVD to play or you can download another player that has already build in almost all of the new codec and ready to use. juts click this link K-lite Codec Pack. Just click the download K-lite Codec Pack to begin your downloading process after you are in the K-lite Codec Pack Website.

Thanks

Dvd player problems


When you put the DVD in the player, are you snapping it onto the spindle? You have to do that with notebook PCs, but not with desktops.

Dvd recorded movies will not play on my other dvd players


Before removing the DVD from the recorder, it must go through a process called finalization. Once you finalize the discs, then it will be able to be seen on most DVD players. Check your recorder's documentation on how to finalize your discs.
