Blu-Ray player on Y580 won't play

Q: Blu-Ray player on Y580 won't play

I bought an Ideapad Y580 some years ago and it came with a Blu-Ray player. It worked fine, until not too long ago. Now it can't read Blu-Ray discs, only DVDs. Anyone know the why it doesn't work properly? Are there any drivers or updates I need? Thanks!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I do not want to use the pre-installed Toshiba Media Player to play DVD's, I want to use the installed Windows Media Player. I cannot change the default DVD player to WMP in Control Panel as the only options are either Toshiba's or Nero's player.

WMP can play CD's, MP3's etc but cannot even read any DVD in the drive. Anyone got any advice on how to do change this?

That?s very interesting. It cannot play DVDs but you want to use it s default player. ;)
You know what, forget WMP and use something else. I recommend you to test ?VLC player?. It can read all video formats and you don?t need to install some codecs. It is for free.

If you will be happy with it you can set it as default player for video format files.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop (I have to get the specs and exact model number later, I'm posting this from work because I have no internet connection at home) which I mainly use for playing DVDs and games. Up until about a month ago, it would play all of my DVDs just fine; I'd insert the disc, I'd hear the whine of the drive spinning, then two beep-like noises, then the WMPlayer would start playing the DVD. Then for a few of them, it would start whirring, , and make some other noises, then stop whirring, then start again like it's trying to read the disc again, and eventually it would just stop trying. I bought a DVD lens cleaning disc and have used that many times, but it doesn't seem to help much. Strangely, it doesn't seem to be caused by excessive scratching or smudging of the DVDs; I've put in brand-new DVDs straight from the packaging that won't play, but then I'll put in another DVD that has some scratches or smudges on it and it'll play fine every time. Any idea what might be going on? Again, I apologize for the incomplete info: I'll post that when I can. Thanks in advance for any advice!

Hi,
I captured an AVI file from my DVD player using my video card. My Real Player and Windows Media Player won't place this DVD clip. Someone said I need codecs.
1. what are they?
2. where to get them?
3. how to use that to convert the file to some other format?
4. what formats do Real Player and Windows Media Player support?
4a. Is there another downloadable DVD player that will play the AVI file as is?
5. I also tried to burn this AVI file using Nero but when I tried to drag the file to the proper place, I encountered problems. What could be the issue here?
6. I have been told in another forum that my CD burner can burn a DVD file on DVD media if the format is proper. What format is needed? Is this another codec issue? (Nero says it needs AVI and that is what my file is).
Thanks

I have burnt an MP3 CD with various artists. Although I have a specific order in burn list, it seems if there is a more than one track from an artist, Vista puts these songs in a folder for that artist on the CD. So I end up with 15 or so folders in alphbetical order, as well as individual tracks for artists that only have one song on compilation.

The problem I have, is that it is not possible to load up CD in DVD player and just hit play.

I have to go into and open each individual folder and select songs for player to play, and as it is alphabetical, it is not the order I want. Artists that only have one song, will automatically play no problems.

All of this takes 15 minutes or more opening folders and adding to playlist for DVD player, just to play an MP3 CD. Is there a way around this, or is it the way it is??

CD plays in order from beginning to end in computer, with no problems.

Try using a CD-R instead of a CD-RW, they generally work better in most players.

Finalize the disc. In Nero this means don't check the box "Allow files to be added later (multisession disc)".

Hello

I burnt a video to a disc but it does not work on my DVD player. This may be because of my computer automaticly logging off at 9:00pm while the disc was still burning. Becaus of this, there is a strange green bar at the bottom of the video when it is playing on the menu:



But when watching the movie it's fine. But it will not play in my DVD player.

Besides this issue, I have two questions.

First question, does the automatic logoff by Parental Control interrupt a burning process?

Second question, how do I erase the disc so I can start again? I read that they are burned forever but I also saw posts where it can also erase. I want to erase the disc, otherwise it's a waste of DVD-R's and I'll have to start a completely new one.

A:My DVD-R will not play in my DVD player

First of all could you give me a Name of the Program you are using and also It may be possible that the Burning Process may Be Interrupted but it shouldn't have if you were using Windows DVD Maker when Parental Controls Time Limits have been Reached it will Lock the User until you are allowed keeping all your Open Programs

Now IF You shutdown Your Computer afterwards during the Process because your User Was Locked then the burning would have been Interrupted

Also DVD -R Stands for DVD- Recordable

It can only be Recorded once you can delete Data of off it like a USB Flash Drive but the Space will not have been Recovered so a New DVD Is Required to Burn the DVD Again

Hope This Helps,
Josh

A:Can't play DVD in DVD player...

I have seen some DVD players be picky about the brand of blank DVD used and/or the recording speed used to burn the disc. Assuming you are authoring video DVDs, as compared burning video files onto data DVDs, try a slower burning speed with a blank that you have or try another brand. If you burned a DVD+R disc, try burning to a DVD-R disc.

I have created a movie using Windows Movie Maker. The file extension is .avi. I have burned the movie to DVD (it's about 3.5GB in size) using Nero 6. The DVD plays fine on my computer but when I try to play it in my DVD player I get a message that it is the wrong type of disc. I admit I don't burn many CDs or DVDs but I have tried everything I can think of and cannot produce a DVD that will play in my player. P.S. the player doesn't have a problem playing DVDs of movies I have purchased or rented.

I am at a loss. Any advice would be appreciated.

PSS Operating system is Windows XP, SP3.

A:DVD won't play in DVD player

Did you create a data DVD? Standalone DVD players are designed to play movie DVD's - these have a very specific file and folder structure. If you look at them in Windows Explorer, you can see folders like VIDEO_TS, AUDIO_TS, and files like .VOB .BUP and .IFO. The format of the videos on those is MPEG-2.*
You should be able to create such DVD's if you pick make movie DVD in the menu (it might ask you to have the files already authored (meaning with the special directory structure, and already converted to MPEG-2) using a DVD authoring program like Nero Vision I think). If you pick data DVD, it will just copy the data without any conversion (no conversion to MPEG-2 nor creation of the special directory structure).
I should note that if you created a movie with Windows Movie Maker, the output should be in Windows Media format (extension .wmv). Did you mean your source (original file) was .avi?

Other notes: Some DVD players can also play VCD's (also special structure, but MPEG-1, and on CD instead of DVD) and SVCD (like VCD's, but MPEG-2), and MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 data files. Newer DVD players can play certain data CD's and DVD's with AVI files encoded in the DivX or Xvid codecs. You can find them with the label "DivX-certified".

One last thought: check the type of media supported by your standalone DVD player. Perhaps you burned a DVD+R when it can only read DVD-R, or vice versa.

When I put my DVD in it recognises it (its not a burned dvd) and I choose player with dell dvd player from the pop up menu. This brings me into the dell dvd player where the name of the dvd is displayed and when I click play the dvd can be heard loading.
However the screen just remains black. This has only occurred in the last 2 days as prior to this it was working just fine.

I have an HP Pavilion and can't figure this out.

A:cd/dvd player will only play cd not dvds

The most common cause for this symptom is failure of the DVD section of the dual laser. The most straightforward way to see if this is so is to try to boot the computer from a bootable DVD, such as a Windows installation DVD or a Linux Live DVD (they're usually pretty easy to find). This leaves out other factors like Windows, and if the drive cannot read the DVD to boot from, this confirms the drive needs replacement.
 
There is a small possibility that the laser lens could have a spot of something that blocks only the DVD laser beam, so cleaning the laser lens is another thing to check. However it's not very likely that a dirty lens would stop the DVD side and not affect the CD at all.
 
If the system boots happily from the DVD, then we can proceed to do diagnosis of a software cause.

"Sometimes when I play RealVideo content, I hear the audio but have no picture. I have a Windows PC with a dual monitor display or am using a laptop and using a second display device such as a monitor or projector."
This occurs on some dual monitor Windows PC desktops and laptops.

Launch the RealPlayer application by finding it in your Applications under the Start button.
In the RealPlayer application, choose Tools and then Preferences. Choose Hardware in the list on the left.
On the right side, the bottom section is called Video Card Compatiblity. Move the slider all the way to the left, towards Most reliable.
Click OK to exit the Preferences window.
Quit RealPlayer and your web browser and try playing the content again.
******************

Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you.

RELEVANCY SCORE 42.8

OK! I finally transferred all my vhs tapes to discs via a recorder THEN I had to rip them to the hard drive, then import them into Movie Maker, and from there I made a movie of my son. THEN the *()@*()$* thing would not burn onto a disc until I decrypted it to mpeg (from mmv) and even then only drag to disc (Roxio) would burn it. Now I have discs burned that work great with Media Player, or any computer video program, but WON'T play on my DVD Player. I have used three different brands of DVDs and have used DVD-R and DVD-RW and DVD+RW. Thanks for your help. You solve this problem and will be SOOOOOOO happy.
