Preferred Solution: DVD RW Drive not playing movies

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The DVD drive I have is an LG GSA-H22L.
It has a DVD read of 16x. The problem I'm having is that when I use it to watch movies the playback is kind of jerky or rough. The sound and video skips, and at some points it's all just moves in slow motion. I'm not sure why.
With my old DVD-ROM (a much older drive in a much older computer) the DVD playback was perfectly smooth. So I'm kind of confused as to why, when I'm using a newer drive in a better computer, with newer software (the PowerDVD 6.0 that came bundled with the drive) the playback is worse.

If anyone knows anything that could help, your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Pc problem. DVD won't read movies, media player says it's blank, but file folder shows .bup .ifo and .vob files. Rip/reinstall found drivers of budgets and DVD drive. System restore did nothing. Still not playing videos. But does play music cds fine. I am using windows 8 and windows media player to try and view, and opening the folder to view the different type of files. I conferred with my tech friends, and they are as stumped as me. So, now I leave it in you guys/gals hands.

Hi, i have just bought an LG N2B1 with an integrated blu-ray writer. I wanted to use the blu ray drive to play blu-ray films on computers connected to the NAS. I can see the blu-ray drive as a network disc drive, and open the folders on the blu-ray film to see the contents fine. But when i come to play it power dvd 8 says not compatible with format. I have looked at LG's support page and they say the drive can be used to play video from the drive on the network, but not encryted video like a movie disc. I was wondering if there would be a way for me to play encryted video blu-rays (ie shop films) from the network blu-ray drive on all my computers. I only want to use the drive to play Blu-ray's on all my computers from the one drive. I think the computer software is struggling to play the file from the network drive, because i am having to search for the folder by going through computer explorer, through the NAS shortcut and its to much for the software to handle. Would it work if i mapped the NAS Blu-ray drive on the computer, so it shows as a disk drive for that computer, and if so how would i do this.

Hi

I have this not a month old Blu ray drive LG [WH16NS40]
The drive works perfectly reading CDs and DVDs software or data, but once I play a DVD movie
After ejecting the DVD, the drive would stop reading anything at all beside CDs.
I can hear the disc spinning for few seconds then it stop with "no disc inserted" message.

I disconnected the power cable of the drive, reconnected, it start reading everything back.
but again once I play/eject a movie, it would stop reading anything after.
I made it burn few DVDs, it was burning them fine, at full speed.

So I'm not sure, is it possible to be defective?

I have another Samsung DVD writer installed on same system, running perfectly.
playing movies over and over.

What I have tried:
Changing sata/power cable and slots on MB.
Updating/downgrading firmware.
Reinstalled hardware.
Deleting lower and upper filter from registry.

I'm thinking of getting new same drive, but can't tell if this factory bug or just my unit?
Haven't got any BD discs yet to test.

Thanks.

I have an external 120gb western digital passport drive with a bunch of movies stored on it. I was wondering if playing movies directly off this drive is bad for it and if it will significantly decrease the life of the drive??
 

A:Playing Movies off Western Digital Passport Drive

Well any use of a hard drive decreases it's life but they are built to be used. Everything ever built would last longer if never used but that's a bit pointless. You may as well not have one.They are built to last years. External hard drives in theory may last longer because you can actually turn them off when not in use as opposed to internal ones which are always spinning away merrily. But don't worry about it, turn it off when not in use and play away happily.

Hi,

I realize this may not be possible at all, but I thought I'd give it a shot.

I just got a 1TB Seagate "GoFlex" External Hard Drive, because I have a lot of video files and I was running out of space on my MacBook. I thought it'd be great to play these shows on my Home Theatre system straight from the external drive - it's a USB drive, and the DVD player has a USB port. My Home Theatre is Samsung, I'm not sure of much more than that but I can probably find out if I need, and the files I want to play are in iTunes format, or .m4v, if that makes a difference.

I've done some looking, and it seems like I may have to reformat the external to FAT32, but there also seems to be some concern about whether that's even possible for large drive sizes. So is this even an option, or am I stuck with hooking up my external to my computer to my HDMI and having no laptop when I want to watch anything?

Thanks. =)

Hi robin3

Maybe he was using some cracked or third party codec pack bundled with spyware/adware. Removing the spyware may prevent it from working.

Uninstall all third party codec packs using add/remove programs then install the K-lite codec pack (standard version, install ffdshow).

If he still can't play the movies then use media player classic (file => properties => details) or vlc (ctrl+i => details) to identify the required codec.

Hi everyone,

My brother got a blu-ray movie for Christmas and wants to play it in the blu-ray drive he has on his computer. I believe it's an LG drive (BD-RW).

The drive came with a bunch of software including PowerDVD 8. However, neither PowerDVD nor Windows Media Player will play the movie. It says it's an unsupported format.

What kind of software do I need to get the movie to work in the blu-ray drive? I've heard I need to upgrade to the Ultra version of PowerDVD to be able to watch blu-ray movies, but it seems dumb to me that I need to buy extra software to watch the movie.

Thanks.
 

A:Playing Blu-Ray Movies

There were two versions of PowerDVD 8, 1) DVD only, 2) DVD and BluRay. Based on the error, I'd say you have the DVD only version.

You don't need the "Ultra version", but you will likely need the latest version (ie: 12).

I use Windows Media player and it's always worked fine for me. LATELY, when I try to move the curser (to maybe skip something in the video or something) and set it to where I want, or even just enlarge the movie/video to full screen, the picture acts weird and then after about 10 seconds the video might be playing slow and the sound doesn't match up. Or sometimes when I move the curser or fullscreen, there is picture, but no sound. It doesn't happen to EVERY video but I can say 70 percent of videos I watch, it happens to.

Even when I watch streams, if I move the curser, or enlarge the screen, it does the same thing.

Quicktime movies won't play in Powerpoint

Windows Media files (.wmv) and MPEG files (.mpeg, .mpg) are good options to insert into Windows Powerpoint presentations. These file formats offer good quality video at small file sizes. Mpeg or Mpg is the better choice

MPEG files (.mpeg, .mpg) are good choices for cross-platform presentations with inserted movies.

If your looking to upgrade (on a tight budget) I would recommend looking into IBM 570's and 600's. There both PII's, but I run WinXP with all of them (and watch movies) no problem (with the ram maxed out at 292mg) i rebuild and sold 6 or 7 them so-far with satisfactory results)

Hiya

Go to Control panel | Internet Options. Security tab. Custom Settings.
Make sure the drop down menu is set to Medium, reset, yes. If its on medium already, reset anyway.

Is it just wmv's online that you have a problem with?

Also, in Internet options, Advanced tab. Scroll down to Multimedia, and make sure Play Videos in Web Pages is ticked. If its not, tick, apply and ok.

Regards

eddie

Greetings

Well i got some odd issues while trying to play 3D BD Movies on my laptop recently,
Since i bought it I never had any problems with playing 3D BD movies with PowerDVD, till around 3-4 days ago, when i tried to play something i got this message and powerDVD was unable to play it : "3D Experience requires 3D enabled TV and player" ... tried some more movies but they were only able to be played in 2D ...

I googled it and the solution on cyperlink's site was disabling hardware accelerator as it disable True Theather, now here's the problem, in the main menu,i press CTR+C --> Video --> and I do remove the check mark in front of Enable Hardware Accelerator (ATI Avivo), OK and out. BUT each time i play a movie the Hardware acceletor option greys out with a mark and i'm unable to change it, not sure what happened, a few weeks ago HP assisst manager updated both CCC driver and PowerDVD but i'm not sure since when exactly i'm unable to play 3D BDs with it.

Also tried TotalMedia Theather 5 but still no result, it can play movies just in 2D and the 3D option is unavailable. I searched a lot but i was unable to find a solution, red many stuffs in ATi or cyperlink etc. updating VGA driver, run TriDignition diag test, downloaded and installed AMD Media Codec Package , Restart the computer -.- (oh c'mon) etc. none of them worked !

I'm not sure what cause the problem and i was unable to disable hardware accelerator in advanced setting --> trobleshooting as t... Read more

A:Problem in playing 3D movies

Did you try system restore?

If that does'nt work try reinstalling the player. (make sure it's free)

I think you said, powerDVD?

KMplayer is a good alternative.

Kind Spirits,
I try to run these but but alas I do so in vain. Windows Media Player bemoans a lack of codec, and VLC Media Player simply despairs. I have scoured the internet for precious hidden codecs but to no avail. Is there any amongst you who are willing to asnwer my plea? Untold riches and rewards beyond all imagination await the brave man, or woman, who can offer an end to my dreadful plight.

A:Playing Original DVD Movies

Hi, I might not be of great help but I felt like I should say something. Now I take it you are trying to play movies and you don't have the codecs.

1) If this is a downloaded movie and it ask for codecs in VLC player = Virus

2) If original movie, asks for codec lets continue the fun.

Now try updating to the lates VLC player. I believe Realplayer it also something of good use.

Also try installing the codecs from here
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/...codec_pack.htm

If possible if you could explain a little more to what movie you are trying to play, format, cd make etc.
Anything you think we shoud know.

I have installed a pioneer DVR-109 burner using an 80 wire ribon cable to the secondary IDE slot and made it master
I have updated the firmware on the drive and checked all the standard sound settings

You usually have to use the audio cable that should have come with the drive. Its a grey wire with black connectors at the end. It goes from the drive to the soundcard or audio header on the motherboard.

Hey there.

I've been facing a lot of issues with my computer. My processor fan keeps going fast and slowing down. This happens once every 2-3 mins. It becomes noisy for just 4 to 5 seconds and then is normal. This repeats every 2 or 3 minutes. If i'm watching a movie it sort of gets stuck and then plays again with a jerk. I checked my device manager and under 'other devices' there seems to be a question mark.

I was infected by a virus (trojan) which I got help with on the kaspersky forum. The moderators there also confirmed with me twice that the virus does not show on my computer any longer. I don't know what the problem could be but this processor fan issue doesn't seem normal. My computer specs are p4 3.0ghz, 2 gb ram, 500gb Sata HDD. It's not branded..it's assembled. Thanks for the help.

It sounds like a possible heat problem. Have you cleaned the dust out of your computer lately? If not get yourself a can of compressed air take the system outside like maybe to the garage, open it up and use the can of air to blow the dust out of it. Do not however use a vacuum cleaner to remove the dust. Vacuum Cleaners are static electricity generators, and can build up enough of a charge to fry components on your system. I see threads where people use vacuums frequently. Please do not pay any attention to the suggestion to do that. While you may be successful all it takes is one discharge of Static electricity and you are spending a lot more money than a 3 or 4 dollar can of air.

I've been using windows media player classic and also KM player in an attempt to play some DVDs - a few of which will only play on the left half of the screen in a compressed window. I have tried to expand, stretch, whatever, to get a normal size with no luck. I have tried VLC player, but the latest version of VLC sucks and frequently stalls out. Does anyone know what the problem might be? I just want to view the DVD in normal size over the full screen of my laptop.

A:error: shut down pc when playing Blu-Ray movies

Hi dford2201 and welcome to Vista Forums

Are you having any other problems with your PC apart from it shutting down when attempting to play a Blu-ray disk? Is it possible that your screen resolution could be causing the problem, especially if you can play ordinary DVDs?
Here is the screen resolution from your specs.

Compare it with the requirements of PowerDVDv8 (taken from the Cyberlink website).

I have the Avivo codes pack and I am getting an audio delay when watching videos off my HD. At first the movies are fine then as I get into them a bit there becomes a delay in the audio. The delay is about one second. To fix it I find all I need to do is pause the video, skip ahead or skip back, then return where I left off and play it again. That fixes it for about 15 minutes. Anyone know what’s going on?
