Unable to copy DVD

I am running into a funny problem. Some DVDs have near the center hole four tiny pinholes in the starting track that I suppose do not allow it to open in my computer. They will open in my DVD player but not in my computer. Any solution? Thank you very much

I need help fixing my DVD-PLAYER. The model number is- PANASONIC SC-DT100. The problem with my DVD-PLAYER is that it won't play original DVDs, it used to before but not anymore. I some how did something...


Hi Zainab

The issue usually related to more than one possibilities. First possibility; the obstacle in front of laser beam lens. Sometime by natural causes the DVD lens collect tiny amount of dust which makes the laser reflection on CD weaker. since copied DVDs has different track structure it might be better reflected.

Second possibility is your region code has been changed. Copied DVDs usualy come with region "0". You might try to set your region again.

You may perform lens cleaning by obtaining an easy to find DVD cleaner set.

Please post if you have further questions

Good Luck

All You Need To Know About Ripping DVD


<p> <p><span>Ripping your music CDs to MP3 changes everything. Instead of juggling CD cases and spending time hunting through the bookcase for the CD with the one track you really feel like hearing, you can choose from your entire music library and enjoy it instantly on your desktop computer or portable media player. You get your content when, where and how you want it. And since making a copy for personal use is generally legally acceptable, so there's plenty of software available.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>Things are not as simple when it comes to ripping DVDs, however. For one thing, the DVD video format is more complicated. Each track on a CD is a WAV file that you can copy or convert, but the content of a DVD is divided into multiple VOB files for the video, with separate audio tracks and a menu system. The menus let you navigate through the video scenes and access alternative soundtracks, captions, camera angles, audio commentaries and extra content.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>The files required in DVD ripping are much larger, especially on dual-layer DVDs, and the conversion is a more complicated process. Video processing is also very CPU-intensive; it could take you a full 24 hours to copy a DVD on a 500 MHz PC, while even a 2 GHz processor will take three or four hours to do the job. And while the version you watch on your PC or media player will be a much smaller file than what's on the DVD, you'll still need up to 10 GB of free space for the files during the ripping process.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>For commercial DVDs, there are other considerations including the copy protection on the discs, and the legality of copying the content (even for personal use). Some of the most famous DVD ripping software is also no longer available legally, although bogus similarly-named versions abound. And finally, not all of the DVD copying software you can buy will work with commercial DVDs</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>DVD Ripper</span><span> converts video to the right codec and resolution for a wide range of portable media players.</span><br /> <p><span>Copying DVDs isn't about piracy - you might just want to make a backup. Because while DVDs are physically robust and long lasting, they're no match for a small child with a jar of peanut butter. Playing the same DVD over and over again doesn't damage it, but the disc can pick up dust and minute scratches as you take it in and out of the case. Enough of them can make DVD playback jump, or more often, stop altogether. (By the way, don't store a DVD horizontally, leave it on a sunny window sill, or keep it in a CD case; the central hub fits the disc too tightly and can damage it).</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>In some rare cases, the layers of the disc can separate - this is called delamination - or spots of corrosion can appear. Although these are grounds for getting the disc replaced, that's not always possible or worth the time and hassle.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>In addition to backup, the video iPod and similar devices allow you to watch videos in smaller and more convenient forms than portable DVD players. And while Media Center PCs always have DVD drives, you still have to physically change DVDs to watch something different. Finally, if you play a DVD on your laptop on a plane trip, you run down the battery faster because you're accessing both the DVD and hard drives.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>Note</span><span>&#65306;</span><span>if you want to rip dvd on mac , you need to user dvd ripper for mac.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>But convert the video on a DVD to an AVI, DivX, or other alternative file format and you can watch it in far more places. You could store the files on a server or NAS device, and watch them on any PC in the house without having to fetch the disc from another room (and without being restricted to PCs that have DVD drives.) You can also take several DVDs with you without lugging around extra weight and bulk.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <span>Note, however, that ripping a DVD to another format reduces video quality even with best dvd ripper. You can't expect the same detail or resolution, and you'll usually lose DVD special features and extra content. But on a smaller screen, or in situations where you couldn't use even a portable DVD player, you may feel the compromise is worthwhile.</span><br />

How to remove dvd stuck


Dear Renee,
Greetings from New Zealand! Not sure about laptops - but on a Desktop the DVD player has a tiny pinhole usually under/near the eject button. This is a manual eject & requires a straitened paperclip to poke in the hole which will mechanically release the DVD-drawer. Most service manuals warn that this should NOT be done too many times as it will eventually break the mechanism... I hope that this helps! GBU! - Bruce.

I have a dvd+r stuck in my delldesktop tower


shutdown the computer. There should be a small hole (tiny pinhole) on the front panel of the DVD player. Unravel a paper clip and insert it into the hole. Keep pressing and it will manually eject the DVD player tray. Hopefully you'll be able to get access to the DVD and remove it.

My cd will not eject out of the driver. Help!


Just to the left of the eject button and just below the disc tray on your optical (DVD/CD) drive is a tiny pinhole. Open up a one end of a paper clip and push that end into the hole and it will release the tray and pop it out without damaging the disc or the drive.

DVD drive will not eject a disc


There is a small pinhole in the face of the dvd drive. Use a paperclip to poke into the hole. It will force an eject of the dvd drive. You can also explore the computer, right mouse click on the drive letter of the dvd drive, choose "eject"....
If it still will not eject, unplug the ribbon cable from the drive but keep the power plugged in, then press the eject button. If worse comes to worse, four small screws, and you can remove the shell of the drive exposing the dvd inside....
Good luck!!!!

I have an Acer Aspire 5534 laptop. I put a photo disc in and the eject button is not working. The photo Cd is in machine and won't come out


Look at the drive there should be a tiny pinhole near the eject button, insert a needle (safety pin, sewing, etc.) into the pin hole and push this opens the drive.
You can also try opening my computer and right clicking the DVD drive and select eject.

TV - DVD Interference Problem


Do you have any other DVDs to try? there is a copy guard put on dvds called "macro vision" maybe this is the problem. Usualy you will notice this when you try and run the dvd threw a VCR not threw the TV. If you are running it threw the VCR by mistake then try direct threw the tv. This is to keep piracy down.
