Replacing portable dvd player with pcdvd rom drive

Sup guys.  I have an audiovox vbp4000 portable dvd player.  The drive reads disks when tore down but not when put together.  It wont eject.  I noticed however that its just a standard pc dvd rom.  I hooked it up to my windows pc and it recognized the drive and i can use it like normal.  So my question is, how can I replace the portable drive with a standard dvd rom drive?  Ive tried simply hooking one up, but no joy.

DVD Ripping/Converting Programs

Hey everybody, I have been trying to find a free program that will allow me to put a DVD into my computer and convert the '.VOB' files into '.avi' files. If anyone can help me out by showing me a program that will do this for me, then that would be awesome. If there is no converter for '.avi', then '.wmv' would be good too. Thanks, SC-Ghost

adding a video input jack to a malfunctioning portable DVD player

I have a Coby portable DVD player that is malfunctioning in that it won't play discs, but the video display appears to be working normally. The jacks on the player are output only and I'd like to be able to switch one of them to an input jack so I could have an additional screen running off of a newer portable DVD player. Are there any known instructions out there? Is it feasible? Thanks, Jim

Mini DVD won't finalize

I've got a DVD camcorder (Samsung SC-DC173U), and am trying to finalize the disc so I can edit the video on it. Problem is, whenever I do what the instructions tell me in order to finalize it, a problem occurs. The "disc Finalize" option is unavailable. The manual says that the cause of this is most likely because the camcorder is low on power, but it is fully charged. Any suggestions? Need I take pictures or do anything else to help?

Artistic project with bulk cd/ dvd cases?

Couldn't decide if this was more of an art question or a craft question... but... You know the ones... the clear cylindrical cases that encase the 50 count blank cds/ dvds? I've seen a few projects here and there, but most look pretty ugly/ college dorm-ish. Guess I'm hoping for some magical suggestions for something kind of artistic? Modern art-ish? Esthetically pleasing in some way? Just plain fun? Doesn't have to be practical at all if it's interesting enough. I've got quite a pile going if it helps the juices. Any suggestions gladly accepted! Thanks!

My name is Kiteman, and I'm an addict... needing a fix!

Some time ago, Lost started on British TV. I'd heard it was good, but I missed the pilot. I also heard that, if you missed the pilot, nothing else made sense.  So, I avoided watching the series, figuring I'd catch the repeats. ...and suddenly they're on season five, and I haven't seen any of them! So, I bought season one on DVD.  Seven discs, twenty-five episodes and a bunch of extras. I picked it up on Saturday, and despite spending a day in school, and a day visiting a friend and her new baby (awww.....), and managing to hunt down my first Mediterranean Gull, I've just watched episode 13 17. Please, no spoilers, I just wanted to say... Whoa! UPDATE: All done.  Twenty-five episodes, and the extras (except the commentaries - I don't like commentaries). We never got to see the Big Scary Monster (although it sounded distinctly mechanical by the end), we never found out where Ethan came from, nor the polar bears. What about the four on the raft?  Last we saw it was still burning, and little Walt! So, I'm now haunting ebay for Season Two - we need to find what's down that ladder....

DVD Audio Amplification Software Resources?

Hi All, I'm working on my kids' Holiday Play that I recorded on a mini-dvd camcorder (it's Februaray already !!??!?). The sound is pretty weak. I have edited the dvd to cut out the crap and have vob files, etc. Can anyone direct me to a tutorial on how to pull the audio so I can amp it up a little in audacity? I would need to know how to separate it from the vob files and then combine it again hopefully without having to re-master the dvd. Windows or Linux software is fine - I run both. Thanks!

Name those DVD Burner parts :)

Hi guys and gals, I just ripped apart a broken pioneer dvd burner of mine (digging for the laser diode inside) Apart from some nifty fans, motors, springs etc. I also came across these inside the reading/writing head of the burner. One definitely is a laser. But as often pointed dvd burners tend to have multiple (2) lasers. Now I wonder which of these items is the second one? All of the three upper items were pointing inside the head and (via some mirrors and lenses) towards the lens shown at the bottom of the photo. So they all seem to be involved in either creating or receiving (reading sensor?) of the laser beam. Hope some brave soul can give me some hints on these.

Toshiba Dvd Player Problem

This lady gave me an older dvd player (Toshiba SD-2150) and she had it hooked up at her house, but the cd started skipping about half way in, and it would contiunously cut out for 10 seconds then resume playback and then cut out again and so on and so forth. As you'll see in the pictures, I've taken it apart down to the laser assembly (only took me 10 minutes incase you're wondering). The apparent problem to me is something is wrong with the gear assembly that moves the laser head. When I turn it by hand, it moves freely for about half a turn then it feels like the gear is catching on something, and if I turn it harder it keeps moving, it's not stripped, but it almost "feels" like theres a hump in the gear or something. I keep looking at the gear and nothing looks wrong with the teeth or anything! I was just going to put 3-in-1 oil on it and see how that helps and put it back together.  Does anyone have any suggestions? *********UPDATE********* I tried many things with various tools I had sitting here to try and straighten out the one tooth on the gear with no success. However with the little bit of melting/bending I did and the 3-in-1 oil, I got it to catch on the gear less easily. After re-installing the optical assembly and testing it on my stereo with the cover off, it appears not to skip anymore, DVD's too. However, I'm still not confident in how long this "repair" is going to work. The best solution I think is to replace the smallest gear on the motor, but I cannot find one close enough.

You know those protective disks you find on a fresh stack of CDs or DVDs?

NOT the actual recordable disks. Those disks that come with a fresh stack of recordable media that are usually kept long enough to keep dust off those items, then get tossed when one runs out of disks. I need them. I use them in my art, making Alien Orchids and such I have been told that with the way technology is moving I will have a hard time finding these disks in the future. I already do! I'm down to about 6 and I can go through that many trying to make one good orchid. I would be happy to pay for shipping for a bundle of 10 or more at a time but what I would like is to find someone with access to a lot of them and pay per flat-rate Priority shipping box full. I think a small box (about the size of a video tape) would probably hold at least  40 disks and if I paid $10 it would cover shipping and put a few bucks in your pocket. Or I could give a shop credit so you can buy stuff I've made out of other stuff. If you can get a box-full together gimme a shout and we'll discuss details... I am also finding it tough to acquire used inner tubes - bike or (especially) auto. I have a project I'd like to finish and don't want to have to purchase a new tube just to cut up.

HD-DVD Players; Any Reuse Ideas?

 So I happen to have a Toshiba HD-A30 HD-DVD player and I know it's a fairly powerful piece of hardware but unfortunately all Google turns up are a few references to the idea of hacking or moding but no actual information on any attempts. The limited info I have managed to find indicates similar models being nothing much more than a P4 running Linux with an IDE HD-DVD ROM. Anyone have any ideas on what I can do with this thing?

Can't play CDs or DVDs In Laptop

When I insert a CD, DVD, software disc, etc into the tray, I hear 2 beeps, a fast, whirring sound which then stops, but there is nothing else happens. No little disc icon appears on screen. I'm unsure if the drive ever worked, but I assume it did when I installed the disc that came with my latest printer. Windows help & support helped me figure discs are not being read, and led me to find CD/DVD driver in Device Manager for repair or updating drive***THERE IS NO LISTING FOR CD/DVD DRIVE THERE OR UNDER SOUNDS SECTION  IN CONTROL PANEL. I have a Compaq  F700 notebook running Windows Vista.  There are 2 DVD players listed in programs in addition to the Windows Media Player. No luck with any of them. One shows "No Disc" even after disc is inserted. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
