Hi,
I don't mean to disagree with my associate, but DVD players for R series (or T, A, etc) can be found for less than 20.00 US (Ebay is a good example)
For that matter, we've got at least a dozen at our shop which we sell for 25.00
Installation is very simple as well, just pop the old drive out, put the new drive in.
Good luck

YAMAHA DVD PLAYER READS NO DISC


Try a DVD cleaning kit and follow the instructions, if no change! the laser pickup assembly will need to be replaced, not cost effective to repair cheaper to replace.

I can't play dvd player to my disc drive.what will i install?


This are the possible solution to your problem: 1. Try to checked the connectivity of your disk drive to power supply connector and IDE/ZATA cable connection to your motherboard. 2. If the first solution is OK then that's good, try now to check if the driver software of your disk drive is properly installed for the second step, if not then installed it by placing the cd to the cd rom then run. Follow the instruction for the cd if available. 3. To check the connectivity of disk drive go to the start button then select MY Computer then click it,from there you must need to look for this: DVD - RAM Drive (E:) it means now that your disk drive is connected properly. 4. If the step 1,2, and 3 are already done but still not functioning/playing also the checked the cd you insert if it is for dvd drive purpose if not replace for a new cd/movie that is compatible to dvd drive,and also checked for the cleanliness of the cd and sensor of the cd reader.
Hope this simple solution could help you to solve your problem. Mam/Sir don't forget me to rate me up I really appreciate what ratings you have given to me.

Toshiba satellite a300 wont load dvd but will play cd. Was working fine yesterday (dvds work ok on my other laptop)


Try to upgrade the driver for the DVD player. This is done in the Device Manager.
Upgrade or reinstall the software used to play the DVD.
One of the best players for DVD and all sorts of other media is the VLC player - a free download.

I have a samsung dvd-v4600...and when i put the dvd disc in it just keeps loading and will not load ..what do i do to fix this?


Hi,
Does it do with original DVD or copied DVD ?.
if the original one works fine but the others not, your DVD may not capable of playing copy -R/RW discs..even though your DVD specs says: Plays DVD-Video, video-mode DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW, CD-R/CD-RW, MP3 CD, Kodak Picture CD, and JPEG image CDs, sometimes this happens due to bad recording of DVD .Try to use better recorded DVD or if possible use the original ones..
Thanks in advance for rating me..Regards

CD player does not recognize the cd's in the player


Hi, you will need to replace the optical lens assembly asap if possible. this is basically what the issue is at Thia's time. you can confirm my diagnosis by trying to clean the lens with a lens cleaning disc. if the cleaning dosen't restore the reading ability of the lens, you will need to replace the optical lens assembly when possible.

please rate and have a great memorial day:)

DVD movie onto a CD-RW


first off, your not going to get dvd quality on cd, if ur talking about a standard dvd that u wish to put on cd, dont even bother.

4GB(DVD) to 700MB(CD) ? re-encoding it to that size will look like crap.

enjoy
