When trying to play a pre-recorded dvd on my desktop the disk is not recognised in my D or E drive. I have finalised the pre-recorded disk and it plays ok in a stand alone dvd player but not on my pc. I have Windows Media Player v10 and jetAudio installed on my xp home system . Do I need a different prog to be able to view dvds?
It could be a codec issue, try the K-Lite codec pack click here or click here AVS DVD player as it has it's own DVD codec. The video player comes with a trial of the commercial AVS video tools, but it's easy to delete.
Morning Belatucadrus and thanks for your reply. I don't understand or know anything about codecs or what they do but am happy to d/load your suggested AVs DVD player, but will I have to make any settings changes to install it. I would be loathed to do this as I would be going into unknown areas and my pc is running so well at this moment !
The only thing that probably needs doing is the uninstall of the Commercial AVS tools trial after you're loaded the download, as it's just a limited taster to try and get you to buy it. Fortunately it comes with it's own uninstaller that clears it out efficiently enough without harming the player. Other than that I don't think there are any settings changes to make.
Hi Belatucadrus and sorry for the delay in getting back. I d/loaded and run AVS dvd player successfully but my pc still tells me to put a disk in E or D drive even when I have put one in. I formatted and finalised the dvd after recording from the TV and it plays ok on my laptop but not on my desktop. I have also tried a shop brought dvds on my desktop but they are not recognised either and when I open My Computer it is not shown as loaded.
