Feb 24, 2011, 8:36 PM
My computer can't read some dvds loaded with photos. I'm able to access photos on mos other discs just having trouble with a handful. All dvd's were written with the same writer. Please help.

You can try cleaning and/or descratching the dvd's, reducing the read speed, or seeing if they'll read in another dvd drive

Are all of the DVDs the same format? I have encountered some older DVD drives that were picking about if it was a +R or a -R disc, but most modern ones will read any variant.

no not all are the same format, some dont read certain formats,
some read - and + and some only - or +, make shur that ur dvd burner or player support,
but honestly today the dvd players and burners should theorically read all dvd formats
