Unable To Play Slideshow On Dvd


Problems putting slide show using windows live movie maker on a dvd

I have a brand new 6 week old toshiba satellite a500 series laptop computer -everything was installed on computer by techs at best buy.

I created a slide show on the computer using photographs from a recent vacation. Everything plays really well on the computer without a problem. However, now i want to transfer this slide show over to a memorex dvd-r disk so that i can share it with family and friends on other computers. Everything seemed to work correctly without a problem, but when i put the disk into the drive to watch it i got an error message which read "this file cannot be played back".

Computer task bar says "dvd rw drive (d:) blank"

Further down on the same screen though it says "files currently on disc (1)

Florida movie type: wlmp file size 418kb

So it does seem that the movie transferred over to the dvd, but did i do something wrong? I just dragged the movie over to roxie. Was that piece of it done incorrectly?

Please help i am very frustrated. I have had several people try to help me in the past without success. Friend from work is telling me how easy it is, not true for me. Fyi- i can do the basics when it comes to the computer, but not very computer savvy.

Music For Slideshow On Dvd Maker

I am making a video/picture dvd using windows dvd maker. I am trying to add music to the slideshow part of the dvd. When i go to add music it brings me to my music library, then i click that and it brings me to itunes, then i click that and it shows all the albums in my library but when i click on an album to finally get to the song it says the folder is empty. When i look it up on my computer it is there. I am assuming i need to change the file type or something but i am not too computer savy. Please help asap. Need this for a birthday present for tomorrow (1/15/10).

Not Able To Play Dvd

I'm having problems with mine as well with the same error message. I am using windows 7 professional 64, i have updated to all the latest drivers and am still receiving the error message "windows media player cannot play this dvd because there is a problem with a digital copy protection between your dvd drive, decoder, and video card. Try installing an updated driver for your video card. "

Older dvd's that i own are playing successfully, but those released within the last year are all receiving the same error. I have tested this on twilight, new moon, transformers and none of those mentioned are playing. The dvd's that i have listed have been purchased at wal-mart as well as best buy. The codec pack in which i am currently using is cole2k.

Sound Is Garbled When Play A Dvd

I have a compaq presario m2305. I installed windows 7 and all the updates. Everything works great except when i put a dvd in the drive the movie starts to play and the graphics are fine but the sound is garbled. I have attempted to install the conexant ac97 drivers and i still have the problem. Hp website offers no windows 7 support. I can play cd music and media player music without any problems. This only occurs with dvd's. I tried media player and windvd 7 both made the sound like someone giving a "raspberry". I don't want to go back to xp just because of the dvd problem but my girlfriend has to have her dvd's work.

Media Player Wont Play Dvd

I am running windows 7 home premium on a toshiba satellite notebook. The problem is with windows media player. Sometime i can put a dvd in the external dvd burner/player and it will work. When i shut down over night i cant get any dvd to load. I get the message "windows media player cannot play dvd video. You might need to adjust your windows display settings. Open display settings in control panel, and then try lowering your screen resolution and color quality settings. "

I have lowered the resolution and color setting but i always get the same message. Now i'm at a loss as to what to do. I bought this laptop to take on vacation to watch movies while on the airplane. The movies are on the hhd and do work when media player decides to work. The portable dvd player and the movies on the hhd play with nero show time but i have no sound and cant play the entire movie like i can with midea player. Any ideas?

Media Player 12 Cannot Play Dvd - Disc Region Problem

I have tried to play a home made dvd in wmp12 on my pc recently upgraded to windows 7. The dvd won't play giving the dialogue "wmp cannot play the dvd because the disc prohibits playback in your region of the world. You must obtain a disc that is intended for your geographic region". This is strange because the dvd is four years old and has played happily in win xp and vista on wmp prior to the upgrade to windows 7. Is there anything in wmp 12 that would cause this and how do i get round it?

Media Player Wont Play Dvd - Digital Copy Protection Problem

Windows 7 home prem 32bit. Inserted a dvd from netflix. I get this message:"wmp cannot play this dvd because there is a problem with the digital copy protection between your dvd drive, decoder, and video card. Try installing an updated driver for your video card"ok, so i have been playing dvd's using this same pc with this same drive with no issues and suddenly i insert a netflix dvd and it won't play? Let's call this drive #1. I have 2 dvd's installed in this same pc, inserting the netflix dvd into dvd #2 player, wmp plays it back fine.

Further, if i play back this netflix dvd in dvd #1 using power dvd. It plays fine. Now, since i can playback this netflix dvd using wmp in drive #2, and since i can playback this netflix dvd in drive #1 using power dvd, surely my video card driver is fine. The 2 dvd players installed in my pc are not the same brand, but i have been playing dvd's in both, playing them back using wmp, with no issues. So why the issue with this netflix dvd? Is there an explanation as to why this netflix dvd inserted into drive #1 won't play the netflix dvd using wmp? Is there a fix for this?

Slideshow Gadget Not Working

I'm a brand new w7 user and was trying out the gadgets. I placed the calender and sideshow on my desktop and they worked fine. The slide show gadget appeared to default to the windows wallpaper which was fine as i didn't have any pics transferred into the computer yet.

After i placed a few pictures in a new folder and pointed the slide show gadget to it, it utilized the photos just fine. I moved around the folders and files for a while while i messed around and learned the library function.

Now i cannot make the slide show bring up those pictures, even when i re-point it to the folders that i want it to utilize. It defaults back to the windows wallpaper and the additional wallpaper folder i created and added to.

Also, the timer and transition function disappeared. I have already done the uninstall and the reinstall gadget within the control panel to no avail. Anyone have a possible solution?
