My a60 plays some dvds and not others - why?? I am not using rental copies!!!


are there any common characteristics of the dvds it won't play? Use this link to download and update your codecs.

http://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm

Codec stands for encoder/decoder keys which basically instructs the computer and the media player how to properly record and playback media correctly.

Now that your codecs are updated, see if the problem continues. If the issue persists, (i am assuming you already checked the surface area of the dvds to see if they were dirty, scratched or damaged) then double check the specs on acer's website to see the compatibility limitations on the player. not all dvds are created equal my friend... newer video compressions, track layering, and hi-def technologys may be beyond the capabilities of your laptops current device. the good news is, upgrading the optical dvd drive to work with the latest innovations is not difficult and its not going to set you back.

let me know what happens - if i was able to fix-ya, let us know by submitting your feedack.

Acer aspire 2930 DVD player only opens some dvds


Try Media player classic under k-lite codec pack. Then open video files on the dvd. If it doesn't help try another codec player. If nothing helps could it be that dvd player is not capable of multilayer dvd reading.

No sound when playing dvds


This is very likely a codec problem. A codec is a software component used with video and audio players that translates the electronic media file into something that can be displayed. Most of the time, the video codec will be out of date and you'll hear the audio but not see any video. You've got the reverse problem, obviously.

Unfortunately, Microsoft does not make this easy. Even the latest download of codecs from Microsoft doesn't necessarily update the Windows Media Player to play any DVD. You will need to do a codec search and download the latest. Last time I checked, 'download.com' had them available (this is CNet's download website). Good luck!

Download and install the K-Lite codec pack and you should be able to play DVDs in Media player

You can also try downloading a dedicated DVD player like this one:
