[QUOTE=Kerry56;2223220]When you just try to play your dvd, not break encryption, what software are you using?
Have you tried playing the dvd in VLC media player? www.videolan.org
Can you right click on the drive with the disk and explore the contents of the disk? I want to see if the drives can read it at all, without necessarily playing the movie.
And last, if you haven’t already used up the trial period, you might try the latest version of AnyDVD to break encryption.[/QUOTE]
Ok. My NEC 3550 Will not even read the disk. My RW5420 will see the disk, and allows me to explore it.
I was using Media Player Classic (newest release) to play the movies. Movies from Lionsgate and Wall-E are the only movies with the problem of them not working on the computer.
I just tried VLC player. It immediate locks as soon as you try to play a disk, requiring a reboot.
AnyDVD has an interesting issue. I can have “My computer” open looking at the disk. It shows the title of the Disk, can explore disk. However the moment I start AnyDVD, the disk immediately vanishes. No title, can no longer browse disk. And Kills the drive (will not even eject the disk until I reboot)
I dunno About you, but with HTPC’s being sold on the market to do exactly what I am doing, this is some BS that the company is trying to pull. Especially since there is not a store anywhere anymore which will let you return a DVD. only for exchange, of the SAME DVD…
