@Anyone,

My friend is an avid Trekke fan and has bought many Star Trek DVDs.
It seems his Trekke movies play fine on stand-alone DVD player, but
will not play on his compaq DVD rom. He can play other DVDs on his
compaq without trouble except "Star Trek". I tried his DVD on my Dell
XPS and it played with no problem. Has anyone had this same problem or
know what could be the problem. I think it could be the DVD software is
not recognizing the header track on the DVD and therefore keeps spining
to find the starting position. He uses Windows 98SE and the DVD pc
player came with the compaq computer. Any ideas?

Hi bp,

It's probably the DVD player on the Compaq

@Kwag,

My player detects the DVD and plays it fine. I guess he needs someone
to convert it to KDVD and then it will work? I think I'll suggest that to
him. Image only his backup works Thanks Kwag for you quick answer
