Want to play my sounds through my tv or bluray


This unit has HDMI out so if you can connect it to your TV with an HDMI cable it should carry both Audio and Video. You say that it won't play DVDs so it makes me think you might have a bad player that you will have get replace through warranty. If you have it connected to your tv and you see some form of welcome screen come up when you power on the DVD player but it won't play discs I would exchange it. As far as other codec are concerned, it says that WMA and other formats are "available". This seems to mean that they are not pre-loaded but the device is capable of using them after some process is followed to install them. I can't tell from their site if the player has internet capabilities or not. One spec said that it has wireless but no other details. If you can connect it to the internet then I would guess the menu would have a way to update it through the internet adding in the new Codec other wise you might have to download them from another computer and put them on a usb drive to install them.
I hope this helps. Good luck

Select subtitle and audio track when ripping Blu-ray?


Among the Blu-ray ripping tools, Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper is favored by most movie lovers for its high success rate of ripping and free switchover of languages and subtitles. It removes BD+ and AACS protections, and handles Blu-ray discs up to MKB version 10 and above so that the Blu-ray movies are attainable freely. Recently Dolby TrueHD codec had been added to the app, which enables users to access any of the audio tracks in Blu-ray discs. It is “able to open, copy, and watch every Blu-ray, irrespectively whether the Blu-Ray was bought in Europe, Japan or USA (i.e. all the three zones)”. (commented by Markus Nolff, a user of Blu-ray Ripper). This guide shows you how to select subtitles and tracks of different languages when ripping Blu-ray discs. A step-by-step guide is displayed below:

Step 1. Load Blu-ray disc.
Make sure you have had an external Blu-ray drive connected with your PC. Insert the desired Blu-ray disc and run Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper. (A free trail version of Blu-ray Ripper can be downloaded from here.) Now when you see the interface, click on “DVD ROM” and the app will import Blu-ray movie from the BD-ROM. Check the directory and click “OK”. Do not expand the folders and try to look for certain M2TS files, since the ripper will detect and put all the M2TS files in file list. You can load DVD in the same way, the ripper is able to cope with any DVD, either protected or not. If your source movie is in folders, click “DVD folder” to import the folders.

Step 2. Set subtitles and audio tracks.
One Blu-ray disc usually comes with multiple audio tracks and subtitles of different languages. Right under the file list you could find Subtitle and Audio option from where the subtitle and dubbings are set. The dropdown list shows you the detailed information, such as the subtitle language, audio language, codec, channels etc. Here you check the main movie (with longest duration), set the subtitle and audio track, and double-click the file to preview your settings.

Insert disk all i get i load then it eject disk


Well it seems that your DVD player is having an issue reading the disc, I guess the first question is what kind of disc are you trying to insert? Is it a burned DVD or is it a movie dvd? This model is not a Blu Ray so if you are trying to use a Blu Ray disc then it will not read it. If you are trying to read a burned disc from someone then more then likely the disc was not finalized and is unable to recognize the disc, because the finalization process is where all the the information is written about what kind of disc it is and the format, codecs, etc. OR maybe the laser is dirty or the DVD player has kicked the bucket. Finally, the product DESC says it can read DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+RW, DVD+R, VHS formats, but I have found that some DVD units do not like certain brands of Blank DVDs. I hope this offers some ideas for you and good luck!

Disc error


It means either the optical pickup trying to read the disc is dirty or bad.

If bad--it may not be cost effective to repair that unit.

I recently bought this laptop and thought that it was able to play blu-ray movies. When I put a blu-ray in and push play, it say that there is no disk in player. Also, if all I have is a dvd player, can...


No disk means that the BR disk is not recognized as present . Don't push play, open Computer instead and see what the disk is labeled: if it appears as a DVD-RAM, you have to install a new BR player unit - the optical unit itself. If the disk appears with its name then the software player you were trying to use works only for dvd's, you need a BR one and the correct codec. You can get both from here

I bought a new LG Blu-ray player at Best Buy in December of 2009. For the last couple of months (begining in May of 2010) I'be started experiencing my player not wanting to play a large majority of my...


two of the main problems associated with players are their motor's and their lens. the lens emitts a light which reads the image off the disc, if the lens is going bad then that lighting signal isnt as strong as it should b and it wont be able to read the disc. on the other hand if the motor spinning the disc is spinning to slowly or it starts but doesnt continue spinning to allow the lens to read the disc then u will experience the problems that u are facing with your player.

solution: get the whole lens motor mechanism changed.

I put divix movie on usb and put in player and he cant read it i tryed 5 different usb drive and then i try form cd he cant read divix movies. On one usb i have some other data he read that but "DIVIX"...


You are not using a properly encoded dvd. read the user manual and when encoding your own divx file (only trouble free guarantee) you MUST stay within the specs. you must use the following:

1. proper DivX Version, XviD Isn't a guarentee to work
2. Must stay within proper bitrate resolutionwhen and frames per second when encoding and make sure you stick to PAL or NTSC settings whichever your country or player used or was bought in.
3. use mp3 2 channel audio with proper bitrates and sample rate should be 41,000k or 48,000k or 96,000k
if you do your research and stick to these steps you'll be on your way to encoding your own videos and TV shows in no time and with little effort.

audio supported for listening to music is MP3 WMA & AAC (Which should be in the form of .m4a)

Hear noise when power on


This is normal as the device is checking for a disc that may be loaded in the unit. The fan should also start running when it is powered on. If the noise continues and can be heard over normal volume levels, this may be a fault.
