Sony players are famous for this and you should call them. They have so many offices that its always hard to know which one to phone. But, that information should be in your user manual.

What it comes down to is the Sony supported Copy Right Protection Scheme, which is really complicated... so much so that it really causes problems for users.

Sorry I can't help you more with anything other than advice, but don't despair, give them a call and complain vociferously.

    Hi,

    Lets try and get you to an better understanding of the problems with this model you have.

    The following comments by owners is from www.videohelp.com

    Here is the direct link to the page at video help that contains user remarks for your player. One would normally give more weight to a user that has had this player for a considerable amount of time, not just a few days or a week.

    You will notice that this player can and cannot play certain media, pressed in mass production to burned at at a local PC.

    You can make up your mind on what to do. And I hope you find this information of more use and you will change the rating you give me initially. I don't feel there is much more we can do here at FixYa using email, or any other form of support. As to your friends tweak to get it out of DTS, to Progressive, to Normal, I would think you could do this in the menus, or the player does it automatically. Either way, it shouldn't make a difference and that the crux. Cheaper players use drives meant for PCs whereas the more Prestigious players like Sony use proprietary drivers meant for adhering to copyright protection schemes supported by the Sony/Phillips alliance (they own the patent).

    Best Regards and Good Luck,
    Worldvet

Play dvd


Usually a window will pop up and ask you if you want to play it.

Easiest fix is to restart the computer.

If a window doesn't pop up then click on MY COMPUTER on your desktop. It should list your hard drive, your dvd drive, and any others. Just click on the dvd drive.




Have you played dvd's on it before?
Is it giving you an error?
Do you have a software program installed to play it?
Free player download
Is it a factory disk?
Some older dvd players won't play certain formats especially home-burned dvds.

I have a dell 755 that the CD drive won't play certain CD's. It is not the CD because it plays on other machines. Some CD's will play just fine. Get's the error message Unable to Access Drive D tr


it depends on the files on the cd ...they might require a certain software to be installed in order to be read..for example the player may not be able to read mp4 without a codec installed ..or vcd (video cd ) to need a dvd player installed or a player that supports video cd and dvd-es..Same way for other file types...or ...certain speeds being imposed on writing ..and your cd drive to be unable to read them on those speeds..

My 2004 tahoe z71 overhead drop-down dvd player message dish format error is that means my dvd player is bad need new one or something i can do to fix i?


Hello there and welcome to Fixya :
No there is nothing wrong with your player the message you are receiving is telling you that the format of the disk is of the wrong format and the player can not play that type of format.
Normally when a disk is coppied it is done in a certain type of format whether it be wmp or mda or somthing like this there are several different types out there. so if you have a player that takes only a certain type of formattted disk you will need to format the disk to that type of format before it can play. ok
Hope this helps i can help you more if needed ok

Can i play Xvid files on my 622 dvd player? if not which kind of video files does it play?


Im assuming your talking about the Philips DVD 622. You cannot play any video files unless they are burned to a CD or DVD in the standard DVD format. It can play certain audio formats but cannot play different video formats.

My go video dvr4400 does not play homemade dvd's


Usually it isn't the speed of the homemade DVD but the type. DVDs come in four different formats:

DVD+R
DVD-R
DVD+RW
DVD-RW

Some DVD players will play all formats and some don't. Your manual should tell you. Do you know what formats are available for playback on your Go video?

Downloaded music to 60g zen xtra


Hi there

I would suggest that you have a look at the file format, i.e .mp3 .wma and then make sure that you mp3 player supports that file format because if the mp3 player only supports mp3's then it will not play .wma. Please remember to give me a good rating.

Kind regards

Recorded a DVD on computer but will not play on DVD player


dvd players play only certain kinds of discs and formats. Older ones played -R's, most newer ones play everything. You have to look in manual, or on box before you buy player. If it won't play -R,+R, -RW,and +RW's I pass it by. Find out if your player is limited to certain discs. Some will play VCD and some will not. Some will play DIVX and some will not etc. Stick to the discs and formats your particular player is compatible with.
