DVD decoder?
on May 29, 2004 at 2:11:20 am

I have a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-105 1.30 which worked perfectly. Had it upgraded w/adobe premier pro and 1g ram. Now Win XP recognizes DVD but Roxio, DVDit, etc. says no recorder present and Win Media Player said "cannot play this DVD because a comkpatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer." Can anyone help me.

You need to install DVD player software, like Cineplayer or WinDVD. There's usually one bundled with the drive.

Thanks, I'll play the disc and hopefully will help. BTW going thru some papers, I discovered that in Nov of 2003, I had the same problem and my computer store found some "corrupted registry settings" that affected DVD ROM, DVD-RW detection in Win XP. I wonder why this keeps happening. But again, thanks for your ever-so-quick reply.

John, I reran the Pioneer install disc and it didn't help, nor did I see anything referring to Cineplayer or WinDVD. Can I download these from the internet? Windows?? Sorry to be such a dweeb but appreciate any help.

How about Cyberlink PowerDVD?

KDaves, unless I read the Cyberlink website wrong, I don't need a DVD Player. I have Roxio, MyDVD and DVDit to burn DVDs. I finished editing my movie in Premiere 6.5 and want to burn it to DVD. My problem is none of these 3 programs read the DVD-R/W, although windows hardware shows its working fine. I appreciate your help, although it didn't apply to my problem.

You must have a software DVD player installed in order to play Mpeg 2 files and DVD's on a computer. Windows Media Player will not play them without one installed. PowerDVD and WinDVD are examples of DVD player software.

Your Pioneer installation disc should have come with such a program. There should be one on the MyDVD disc, the DVDit disc and there may be one on the Roxio disc, too.

Burning is a separate issue. Check the Roxio site. The FAQ and support page should have something there to help you.

something to try
on Sep 24, 2004 at 8:57:52 am

Try this at your own risk but I have tried this before and have been told to try this. Uninstall your dvd software if possible uninstall your dvd burner the actual drive under device manager then reboot and reinstall all your software again.

If this does not work then check and it has worked in the past then you more than likey are in need of a fresh install of winxp after formating your hard drive. Just make sure you back up all your files etc. first some how I realise your dvd burner is not working.

I try to keep my video computer as clutter free as possible I never install anything that I do not have to have. It is NOT connected to the internet. If I have to do a windows update I download it from another computer.


Good luck

Sue,

Did you get your system to recognize the DVD?
