Question about Dual XDVD8181 Car Video Player

3 Answers

Player not grabing cd as it goes in.

When i put a cd into the cd slot, i dont feel the player accepting the cd to be loaded for playing music or video. I am afraid if i push the cd all the way in the player it will get stuck in there and be impossible to remove. It is possible that the loading system is broken???

    Mine player is doing the same thing. I'm trying to get in touch with someone at dual to see how much it will cost to get it fixed. SOmeone told me that it has something to do with a spring inside of the system that pops out of place at some point.

Mintek factory solution for the forever loading disc problem.


With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that moves the laser diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you.

How do I install music express, CD is too small for the place where you put the regular size CD? Does this cost anything?


If your drive has the common tray that extends for loading and removal, look at the bottom of the tray; it will have a depression intended for this small CD format. If it is slot-loaded, you have a problem. Your best bet then would be to have a friend copy the CD's content to a standard CD your drive can accept.

Insignia blu-ray player only plays music cd's. Ejects BD's.


Try to clean the player using a bluray cleaning kit. Dont use the dvd cleaning kit as a few can cause problems. Look at packages and see if they can be used on blu-ray players.

If this does not fix the player call Insignia immediately as the laser can be broke and will be expensive to fix. These players have a one year warrante so you should be covered

I sync with my mp3 player on computer it loads then i press play on mp3 player no music but vol is on i save my music from cd straight to windows media player then sync with mp3 player


if its right you just copy the shortcut of the music from your cd to your windows media player, meaning you cannot play that song in the media player if the cd is not inserted, you have to rip first the cd to your pc then put it in your mp3. Also make sure that you rip it in the right format that your mp3 can play, media player automatically rip the music as wma not mp3, make sure your mp3 player can play wma.

check the file types from you music the shaker only plays MP3 and PCM WAV  file types. You may have WMA (if u used windows media player) which will not play on the shaker  (i had this same ploblem btw) you can easly find free music file converter software to change these files to mp3 or wav types (which i did), or you could rerip to songs from a cd and tell the windows media player to rip the files as mp3 types instead of the default wma format  from the windows media player widow :
tools >> options >> Rip Music >> under format select mp3 (theres a wav option but i used the mp3 option to be safe) 
do not use the sync feature it will automatically convert your files to to wma (why? i dont know) instead copy the files directly from the folder that contains them :
right click the file you need to put on the player select open file location drag and drop to the player (or copy/paste if you want).
hope this helped =P
