Why everytime i play movie or video (download, played using cd-rom) my screen turns flicker/static but when i play some videos from net like youtube or streaming, im not getting any problem. Audio is...


Sure,
This seems to be a problem with

1- Your DVD / CD player , which is not reading the video files properly probably because of a damaged lens.
2- Your RAM is less than the amount which is required to play the video file properly.
3- The CD / DVD itself if it has scratches or has done bad, if this is the case with all video cds/dvds then this is not the problem.

Now to check if it's not a problem with your DVD or CD player reading the disc,

Try copying the video file to your hard disk and play it , if it works ok , it could be the reason that your CD/DVD lens is damaged and not in best condition.

I purchased a plextor px-870a dvd/cd writer to replace the cd writer in our computor it is a dell with a dvd player in the top slot and a cd writer in the next slot down but the cd writer stoped working so...


On the back of a CD-writer or a DVD-writer is a small grid (2 rows) of gold pins.

Each vertical set of pins is labelled: MA(ster), SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect).
Be sure that one drive has a small jumper between the MA pins,
and the other drive has a small jumper between the SL pins.

Was there any software on CD-ROM that came with the DVD-writer,
e.g., software to play DVDs, and software to write CDs and DVDs?
To "play" a DVD, you'll need that software.
To "play" a music CD, Windows Media Player will suffice.

CD's won't play on Home & Car stereo after Burning in Mp3 or WAv


most older car and home stereos will NOT play mp3's or wav files reguardless what kind of CD they are written on.
You need a newer stereo OR convert the mp3s to cd audio and then burn them to any recordable cd.. (audio cds can be read by any cd player but will take more space)

Pc wont play cd or dvd


On many CD-Roms, or burners, there is a plug on the back that is for Digital Audio. It is a rectangular shaped plug. Some PC's require that a cable is attached from the back of the burner, to either the on-board audio (on the motherboard), or to the sound card that may be installed. If you have any further questions, just let me know :)
