Question about Computers & Internet
DVD's have different formats. DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+RW, DVD-RW and then there is dual-layer, regional limitations, etc. Check the formats and make sure your DVD player can handle them. Are these recorded DVD's, data DVD's or retail-purchased DVD movies?
Check the Acer website for updated drivers. That means all of them, too, not just the DVD drivers. Check for audio, video, chipset, BIOS, etc. They can all have an effect on the overall playback/rendering performance.
It's not unusual at all for a DVD-ROM to be a bit finicky about copied DVD's that were recorded on other units.
You might be able to figure out why it won't play certain DVD's, but it's unlikely that you'll ever be able to force it to read a DVD that it just doesn't like.
