My DVD Platinum is working fine. I only wish it would burn a little faster. The only problem I am having is after the movie is burned, and depending on which DVD player I put it in, the disk (not the player) asks for a password. On my portable player i have to wait several minutes and then press the fast forward button or the next scene button. If the password screen/parental control screen didn't show up I wouldn't have any complaints. Also depending on which movie I burn it doesn't start at the movie itself. It might start at the special features. Once I see this I just hit the menu key on my remote to go back to the movie. Please fix the password problem I have. Am I the only one?

Hate to say, but, it sounds like you may be. I've not seen such an occurance and the only thing I could think it would be is the parental control level set on the disc and those you have set up for your player.


Have you tried these discs with other players, not just your own?

I don't have parental controls set on any of my 4 DVD players. Three out of four players ask for a password when I burn certain movies. When I burn the Hulk or Daddy Day Care the DVD player will ask for a password. If I burn Matrix Reloaded it won't ask for a password. I only have this problem when burning with Platinum. I have no problems with X-press 2.5. I as sent an
E-mail on how to fix the problem, but I get the same results.

What did they say? Because, beyond the parnetal controls being set on the players, I can't think of what this could be. The only way the player would ask for a password is if the parental controls were set on the player and the disc. So, if you didn't set the controls on the player, then, the disc itself if it has parental controls wouldn't load them. And, since you tried this on 4 different players, it must be that disc. Unless, somehow, DXC developed and added, for some weird reason, software that can actually override the parental controls in a DVD player. But, 1.) why would they? If such software existed, why put in on a disc? It would just defeat parental controls anyway. and 2.) as I said, HOW could they? :)

They told me to down load Ad-aware and Force ASPI. I did both and nothing works. I use Memorex 4x and TDK 2X. I have no problem with those disks. Maybe there is something incorporated into the original disks that conflicts with the platinum program. I am wondering why I am the only one with this problem?

I failed to mention I only have this problem on my newer Progressive Scan DVD players.

Ah, but, but non Progressive Scan players you don't get this error? If that's the case, then, it must be something that DXC does when burning the disc that makes the Progressive Scan players think there are parental controls on the disc... although it doesn't help explain how the player does it when you haven't set those options yet.


This is the first I've heard of this. It may be some kind of weird collection of circumstances. That within DXC there is a test module for parental controls that they forgot to remove and it was adding parental control levels to the disc. But, that still wouldn't explain the how the player itself asks for a password when you haven't set parental controls.


As for Ad-Aware and Force ASPI, I've *NO* idea why they told you to get those. Ad-Aware just removes spybots. Spybots running can cause conflicts with software, but, generally, the software bombs out completely or the finished result is totally unusable, so the disc wouldn't run. As with Force ASPI, that couldn't help expect if DXC didn't detect the drives. It obviously detected the drives because you've burned the discs which are causing these weird errors.


Sorry, can't help you anymore beyond mere speculation.

You are slightly in the wrong forum... if you want help with this password thing, why not post to the problems forum. This is for suggestions and feedback. Have you tried playing those DVD's on your computer DVD player? Does it also ask for a password? If not, then it's probably just your TV DVD players.
