Compaq desk top 7600

DVD player will not play any DVD's

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Jul 12, 2008

    Mathdot, again. I used to be able to play DVD's on my Compaq desk top 7600. Not being able to play any DVD's is a new experience. I tried inserting the ones I have played before but to no avail. Democritus, do you still think I should purchase DVD player software? I did not have it before and the DVD's played find. By the way, my sister purchased, at the same time, the same Compaq bundle that I did and now she, too, is not able to play her DVD's.

    Thanks,

    Mathdot

I am assuming that you mean a DVD drive installed in a computer.

A DVD drive provides the physical ability to read DVD discs, but not the decryption ability. This is enclosed with DVD player software. Please purchase and install DVD player software.

Dvd stuck in my pc dvd player


Check for updates on your PC System first. Check for updates on your DVD Player program like Patches and Codex. Mainly Codex is what will let the Movie play.

Have a Compaq Computer. My tower has two places wherein discs can be inserted for various reasons. - Can you tell me which insertion site i.e., top or bottom that will enable playing a CD - commercial...


Probably both will play a cd but sure that one will only record a DVD -/+ or a CD and the DVD recorder will play DVD's. If the CD player is a DVD player it will play DVD's and CD's but not record.

Compaq 7600 will not play, burn, cds or dvds


it seems more problem of dvd rom than a update. try to clean the lense with wet tissue. first try to boot your system with bootable cd/dvd. if it booted it means the software gone corrupt otherwise cd gone bad.

Dvd decoder


I believ you can find a decoder at filehippo.com Keep in mind that DVD burning software will work even if you don't have a burner, just delet the icon from the desk top for burning, your media play will use the decoder in it. The burning software has a decoder in order to read then burn.

The problem you are having is the DVD player. Not all DVD players will play a burned DVD. Some set top DVD players are know for being very picky about what type of DVD's they will play, and Phillips is very bad about this.

If you have the owners manual for the DVD player, look inside and see what type of disc's are playable. if it should play them DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R. DVD+RW should all be listed.

Right now about 80% of DVD players do not play burned DVD's

In time they all will play them, but for some unknownn reason, some are still made without this ability.

Also, not all DVD-R's are created equal.

The best quality of DVD's to buy for burning are Taiyo Yuden. But Sony, memorex, and Maxell are also pretty good.

One way to be certain about the quality of the burned DVD's is to take one to a friends house or anybody you know who has a set top DVD player and see if it plays in their DVD player.

That will at least tell you if the DVD's you are burning are at fault or not. But my guess is that you r Phillips is the culprit here.

I hope this was helpful to you, if so a good rating would really be appreciated.

I have been buring DVD's since they started selling them for the PC. compatibility has been the only problem I have had.
My sony DVD player plays everything I throw at it.
