Question How to play DVD copies in my computer DVD

sponsored links
Hi everyone, I need to know if you can play DVD copies in my computer DVD player. A friend gave me a copy of a movie but my computer DVD player dont play it. It said "incert dvd" . I try it on my son Play Station 2 and it did the same. What do I need to play this DVDs. I found that for the Play Station I need some kind fo a hardware MOD chip, but I figue for the computer has to be some kind of a shareware or something to play them.
Any help will be very apreciated.

What kind of answer is that?If he does indeed have a "dvd" drive on his computer,and something like Power DVD,he CAN play movies.Of course they have to copied correctly.Did your friend "test" the copy?

If the disc wasn't burned correctly, it won't work of course. What program did he use to copy the movie and what software was used to burn it??

Do you have WinDVD or Power DVD?? I would assume you would since you have a dvd rom in your PC.

When you insert the disc in your DVD rom, go into My Computer and see what it says in that drive. If it looks like it is the right size for a movie, right click on it and click play. It should start playing if done correctly.

Sounds like the copy is a dud. Your computer can play copies matey, but the PS2 needs to be chipped in order to play the copied movies.
