I have tried to run a CD which came with a car cam,is there anyway I could get it to run. Someone suggested it could be security settings but I do not know
It depends on the format, is it a Audio disc or a video is it AVI or WMV or even a Pal format it could be a American format of NSTC, if it is a
video disc it could need its format changed if it is a audio try a re-rode in Nero. just saying it does not play is not enough information. Maybe
your codecs need updating or just your player is plainly knackered. It could be a multitude of things it could also be regional tied, some discs
only play in Europe and others in the USA (region1) while others only play in other regions of the world. jmb
PS- bit more complex than football Charles
Have you tried looking at the contents via my computer?
Well if its a AVI it will have to be converted into PAL. A programme I use is called Convert X to DVD this enables it to be played not just on a computer but on a stand alone player / that is presuming its a video disc. also check the face of the actual disc if it is scratched or deformed or just plain dirty it wont play, jmb
Good point. Despite being assured by Tomorrows World that they are indestructible.
Have you tried it on different players
It is a simple CD included with a British made car camera, the manufactures say it should run with no problem
Make sure there are no dirty great fingerprints on the playing surface, they can be as destructive on CDs as they ever were on records.
What have you tried, Charles?
If you look in the root of the CD, you should see a file named "autorun.inf". If you open that, in Notepad, it should give you the name of the file it runs. You can, then, double-click on said file and run it.
Or, perhaps, you could try opening the video with Media Player. Media Player Classic'll run most vids.
