Lost of things could be happening ,depending on optical drive manufacturer,file type,plus or minus dvd/cd blank disk and burning software and how you are burning the media,all can cause malfunctions,but if playing a disc causes blue screen of death,then i would first uninstall display adapter driver on graphics card,and restart,when computer finds new hardware,click cancel,go to dell support and get newest driver,and software,reinstall..some optical drives like minus discs,some like plus discs,depending on the drive,if its a combo drive and will read and write both plus and minus discs,then the problem is how you are burning them,or the laser is dirty or drive is malfunctioning.if you arent allready using nero burning software,then i would reccomend it,i have been doing this a long time,had my days of problems,,not anymore,i dont work for nero nor am i paid by them to say this, but i am a computer repair tech with 25+years experience,save yourself hours of pain and wasted blank discs,and purchase it,user friendly ,easy to use ,and advanced drive speed tools ,allow max preformance on any computer,read instructions ,discs must be burned with correct file type for device that plays them back ,disc at once or track at once settings ,matter,also using the slowest burning speed,creates a higher quality disc,but takes longer,post comments if you have more questions ,aloha from maui todd0708

Hi i have a sharp hp22 i ham trying to play normal dvds on it ? is that possible


In general, Blu-ray player is compatible with DVDs. So you can play DVD on Sharp Blu-ray Player. However, some pretected DVD can be played on Blu-ray Player. As for How to remove region restriction on DVD for playing on any Blu-ray player, just follow below steps.
Step 1. Download and install Leawo DVD Ripper on your computer, and then kick off the program to enter the main interface. Import the DVD with copy protection on your computer by clicking Add Blu-ray/DVD. Once the protected DVD is selected, you will be provided three options to import DVD file(s): Full Movie, Main Movie and Custom Mode. Full Movie is to import all titles, and Main Movie only imports the longest title by default. And you are able to choose titles for importing under Custom Mode.

Step 2. In a drop-down box named "MP4 Video", you can click "Change" to enter the Profile panel to select the output format.

Step 3. Set a directory under "Save to" box. Finally, hit "Convert" button at the bottom to start the conversion process. During the conversion process, Leawo Blu-ray Ripper will automatically remove the disc copy protection and then begin the conversion in several minutes. With Leawo DVD Ripper, it will help do Blu-ray players play all region DVDs.

Dvd recording


I had the same problem and spent some time looking up this issue. I have a sony dvd player and it seems to have trouble reading almost any burnt dvd or cd. I have read that sonys seem to prefer the cheap dvds and cds for burning. It seems the cheap'O dvd players play burnt dvds and cds better that the nice ones, go figure.

There is more info out there about making sure to burn dvds and cds in the correct format.
You can try different burning software that has more options than just vista.
If you are creating a dvd from a movie file such as an avi or mpeg, please explain more on what you are doing and trying to accomplish.

G'luck
