Weird cd protection: cd not detected

vbimport

#1

hmmm… weird cd protection i have here. i tried reading and copying a vcd on my comp with the cdrw drive, and the cd burner (i used alcohol 120%, blindwrite, clonecd, gamejack) won’t recognize the cd in the drive. it just said “error: cd not detected” or “please place cd in drive.” will sum1 explain to me wat kind of protection it is?


#2

Does this disc play on anything at all? If so, what?


#3

the cd only plays on dvd players for tvs, but just can’t be read on the comp


#4

Did you buy this “vcd”? Could it be it’s a dvd and that’s why it won’t play in your cdrw?


#5

ya i bought it. its some chinese tv series. it is really a vcd, cuz all other vcds of the same series play on my comp. besides, my cdrw drive is also dvdrw, so it doesnt really matter.


#6

Maybe its made not to be played on a PC?


#7

i think it is possible to be played on a pc, as my friend also had a vcd that has this prob, but he found some software that reads the vcd (too bad he forgot the name of the software). n how can the vcd not meant to be played on pc when other vcds of the same series can be?

Ok, try Cyberlink PowerDVD, that is a decent movie player.


#9

already done. like i said, nothing i do on my comp can detect the cd…

Look here:http://www.cdmediaworld.com/hardware/cdrom/cd_protect_cd.shtml Sounds like one of these or similar. (Thanks to G3ri) Your best bet is to try and determine which one it is if any, then google for a way around.
