Default playing a dvd

sponsored links

I've down loaded some movies and converted to dvd. I played them on the pc and on my stand alone dvd player but now some of them they wont play on either. is there some way that the data on the dvd discs can become corrupted and so wont play.

Any disc or optical medium can deteriorate and not play, but this does sound strange.

What exactly happens when you try to play it on your computer?

when I try to play them on the pc nothing happens. It dosn't even recognise that there is a disc and the pc stops responding while the disc is in the pc. these are dvd I have recently made so they havn't had time to deteroriate. I have two dvd drives on the pc and also two dvd stand alone players and they did play on all of them but not now. I've installed dvd region+css free just incase they were region 1.As you say it's a strange one.
