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.

It's not reading cd, or DVD


Check for scratches on the disk surface - these can inhibit the player from reading a disk correctly.

Some players will read olny certain type(s) of disks. This is an issue mostly for disks created on a computer, not those that are prerecorded and available for purchase or rental that contain movies and music.

As stated above, dIsks created on a home computer may not always be readable on a home player. Re-writeable and recordable types that are not listed as being compatible will not work. Check your manual to see which types are acceptable and not. DVD types are: DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW and DVD-RAM CD Types are CD-R, CD+R and CR-RW. Older home CD and DVD players generally work with "-R" types and the newer players with both "-R" & "+R" types. "-RW" and "-RAM" types are the least likely to be readable in home players.

Additionally, most players require that disks created on a home computer be "finalized". This is an extra step that isn't required by most CD / DVD drives in computers. Just because it works in your computer doesn't mean it will work in your home player. If you're using compatible media and still not able to read disks, check your CD / DVD recording software options to enable finalization.

Good luck!

When i burn a disk on dvd,it will not play on my dvd player?


Some DVD-players only read 'DVD-R' disks.
Some DVD-players only read 'DVD+R' disks.

Be sure that the "blank" disks you are using are compatible with your DVD-player.

Incert dvd read out sats NO


Hello
This usually happens when the DVD or laser lens pick-up has become dirty.All you need to do is

1. Check the disk for scratches.

2. Make sure the disk you are using fit the correct format specified by your DVD player.

3. Clean the laser lens with a DVD laser cleaning disk.

4. Insert a correctly formatted undamaged disk into your player,listen to see if it begins to read the disk,if it continues to make no sound.

5. Open the DVD player carefully and clean the lens with isopropyl alcohol and cotton swab.

6. If none of these solutions works out then a professional repair technician will be able to tell you if fixing your DVD player is worth the money.
BEST OF LUCK

Playing dvd's from camcorder on laptop...


I have this video camera. It seemed like a good deal at $200 at Christmas time. It is suppose to be able to record on DVD-R, +R disks. (re-writable and write disks) I have had issues with not being able to finalize the disk. I found you needed to keep at least 5 minutes on the disk to finalize it. It will not play in any DVD player or a Computer till it is finalized. The info stored on the disk is in RAW form. Finalizing it will create a "lead in" and "lead out" and a menu for your computer and/or DVD player to understand. A large part of whether it will play or not, is what is your DVD Player or DVD Drive on you computer capable of? DVD Players usually will play anything that has been finalized, same with your DVD drive on your computer. BUT! Yep there's a but, sorry. DVD players and DVD Drives sometimes can only read one type of disk. Either a DVD-R or DVD+R, some may not be able to read a re-writable disk too. Look through your manuals on your Laptop and your DVD Player(s) and try to match the correct media (i.e. DVD-R or DVD+R Write or Re-Writable) I found that between my PC and my DVD Player, that DVD+R would work without a hitch for both electonics. Download that software that Samsung gave you in with the video camera. It may end up loading the driver software to help you're computer to recognize the video DVD you are trying to play. Oh, and make sure you really do have a DVD player/burner drive installed. I went to play a movie on my wife's Laptop and found it came with a CD drive and no DVD drive. That's not what I ordered and I was about a year to late to complain to the company. :( Hope that helps.

When trying to play dvd wont due to saying either unknown disc or defective disc


Hey,
As i don't know the model of your dvd player or the type of dvd you are using I can only give you a very basic response for possible issues.  1. you are using a "burned" dvd on an older dvd player. Some older dvd players can't read dvd's burned from a computer. 2. The lense is dirty, scratched or damaged.. if other disks work in the dvd player, than this option is out the window. 3. DVD is damaged or defective. Just like the previous solution, if the disk works in other dvd players, this option is out the window 4. The DVD is from a different Region. Here in Canada and the US we are region 1, if you get a disk from Europe or japan. they are region 2 dvd's and thus don't work in our north american machines. 5. Some older DVD players have difficulty reading dual layer discs - just a though
I hope those were helpful, if not message me back with the dvd player model number and the movie or type of disk you were using.

Hope it was the non-acetone type of polish remover - acetone will melt plastic !!

Invest in a laser eye cleaning disk - the kind with the tiny brushes.

OK what type of file format are the files in on the disk you are tying to play?

IDM-1731 does not like .AVIs.

Check your documentation as to what type of files your player can actually read and play.

Sorry I'm not more help.
