Alright, so I bought this AC/DC dvd from Sams club....it rocks!!! But that's besides the point. I can't get it to play in my dvd player on my computer. Other dvd movies play fine. If I use DVD shrink, I can make it so that I can see the video, but can't hear any sound. I can't even see the audio. It plays in my regular DVD player (for tv in living room). My dvd player on my comp is a new dvd super mulit DVD/+ - RW made by LG. My comp will play everything else made under the sun, just not this video. I've tried WMP 10 (all up to date), quick time, Creative sound player (came with my sb live soundcard), and some other generic player that I downloaded. Nothing, zip, zilch, nada. If my computer refuses to play AC/DC, I swear I'll get rid of it!!!! I wanted to get this video on my computer so I could watch/listen to it whenever I felt like it w/out having to put in the DVD itself.

Any suggestions? Aside from those programs I've already listed, I also have Adobe Premiere pro v1.5, so if there's a way I can capture that from the DVD and import it into Premiere Pro, I have the know how of editing video, it's just a matter of getting it there. Premiere doesn't recognize the "TS" format that comes off of the DVD.

Again, thanks in advance for your help!

Hey Steve you Almighty what to use the Character Map for your special symbols. Instead of -/+, you could use . Check it out.

1/4, 1/2, 3/4 = ,,

I know about the character map, I just seldom use it, and when I do it's usually for "" and "". TBH, I'm usually only online for a few minutes at a time, and am to lazy to stop to bring up the character map to insert symbols :thumbsup:

I'll try to start using it more though!!! :flowers: :trumpet:

Anyone have any suggestions? I tried last night to play AC/DC Family Jewels on my computer, and it wouldn't work either. It copies the dvd(s) fine and dandy, but I can't get them to play. When I put both of the dvd's in (Live at Donnington and Family Jewels), the auto play doesn't even pick it up. When I put a regular movie in, it starts to play it automatically....hmmmmm.....I cannot live with a computer that refuses to play AC/DC. :thumbsup:
