I have borrowed a dvd from video rental, and found it will play on my dvd player but not on my laptop. In fact on a couple of occassion my dvd driver was removed. Is there something on the dvd that recognises my copying software? Fair call if so, but I am curious, I haven't ecountered this before. Anyone know what is going on here?
take a look at the disk see if it says blue ray. if it does your home dvd player may be a buyray combo drive. if it a standard dvd windows should be able to read the disk but not play it. you need a dvd player (vcl for free). Power dvd is paid. if the drive not reading the disk it could be a hi/low filter issue. google the fix from microsoft web page. if it not a filter issues it could be a firmware of the drive/media issue.
