    I HAVE AN L.G. DVD HOME THEATRE THAT DOES NOT READ MY DVD.WHEN INSERTED.WHAT COULD BE WRONG?

  • Elfenstein Jan 03, 2008

    I have exactly the same problem with my Toshiba Satellite SA40-231 with its SD-R6112 DVD drive. It accepts many kinds of DVD:s for recording but when I try to read the data later on, no disc is found or the disc seems to be empty. Trying the same, already recorded discs in some other computers they work perfectly. Also reading movie DVD:s is problematic; the DVD drive seems to accept them only when it is on good mood which is about every 4th time I insert a movie DVD into the computer.

    The discs I use are in perfect shape, usually brands like Sony and Maxell, and I have tryid to keep both the drive and the whole laptop clean out of dust so that is not the problem. Interesting is that CD discs work perfectly. These problems have existed eversince I got the laptop some four years ago but I didn't know then it could have been the DVD drive's fault. Just blamed my own stupidity then and of course the two years guarantee "worned out"...

Cant burn dvd


You need a dvd burner a burning program and a dvdr burnable disk to be able to burn a dvd
Burning computer files on a DVD can be a great way to backup your information.
Most one-sided writeable and rewritable DVD discs can store nearly five gigabytes of information, while two-sided writeable and rewriteable DVD discs can hold over eight gigabytes.

There are many programs available for purchase that you can use to burn a DVD.
For the sake of this tutorial, we will be using one of the most popular CD and DVD burning utilities Nero Burning ROM.

Read on to learn how to burn a DVD.
Insert your writeable or rewriteable DVD into your writeable DVD drive.

Click on your start menu and select "All Programs," "Nero" and "Nero StartSmart."
Locate the pull-down menu at the top of the window that shows "CD" displayed.

Click on the arrow to view the rest of the menu and select DVD.
Find the icons under the pull-down menu you just used.

Click on the "Data" icon. Then click on "Make Data DVD."
Click on the "Add" button when the Nero Express window opens.

Find the files on your hard drive that you would like to burn to the DVD and select them.
When you're done selecting files, click "Finished."


Select "Next" to get to the Final Burn Settings screen. If you can select the speed at which to write your disc, select the 8x option.

Click "Burn" and wait as your files are burned to the DVD. Click "OK" once the window pops up telling you the burn process was completed successfully. http://www.nero.com/enu/index.html

I burned a new dvd movies, but it does play on my sony player DVP.NC800, but it plays on pc only. please advise


If you burn dvd movies (video files having ".vob" extension and associated dvd files), make sure you burn them as "dvd video", otherwise they might not play in standard dvd players.

For example, when you try to burn dvd files in Nero as a data dvd, mixed mode dvd or a compilation, the program itself will notify you that such a disc may not be playable in a standard dvd player, so you must burn it in "dvd video" mode.

Note that when you select the "dvd video" mode in Nero (i don't know about the other programs though), the standard dvd folders VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS are automatically created by the program, you should only place the video files (not any folders or subfolders) into the VIDEO_TS folder created by the program.

If you are already doing it this way, then the problem is obviously somewhere else.

Hope you can get it solved.

Are you sure the DVD-R disc you are trying to use is brand new and never written on?

Disc error "playback feature may not be available on this disc"


Hello arnita2211,

This error message is due to an improper format, that your dvd player can't handle. To correct this you need to use a program such as nero and in nero is a program called nero vision, that will recode the movie file into a dvd playable format.

You can download a trial of nero here
http://www.nero.com/enu/downloads-nero9-trial.php
You will have to purchase a license when the trial ends. Sorry we cannot give you a serial key for this as it is Illegal.

Thank you for trying Fixya!

I have a samsung external dvd writer model se-s204 and i've been unable to make dvd's yhat play on all devices-ie: playstaion, dvd players, my own laptop. any help in this matter would be greatly...


To make a dvd cd that will play in most players beit dvd or cd the best thing to use is nero. It won't be the cd burner itself it will be the program you are useing to burn it with. Try nero but just remember that not all dvd, cd players will play burnt discs.

Dvd


it all depends on wot u used to burn it, and wot type of dvd player u have, there r diff ways to get it to play, on a normal dvd player u will either need to encode the movie file into a vcd and put it on a cd or encode to dvd format and burn it onto a dvd using programs like nero or roxio
