W7 PC shuts down when playing Decca music DVD

September 15, 2011 at 06:52:58
Specs: Windows 7
Hi!
I am trying to play for the first time in my CD-Rom DVD drive a locally purchased Decca DVD with an Opera concerto, ( UDF recording.).
As soon as I select Play on the autoplay screen, I get a blue screen for a few seconds telling me that my system ( Win 7) is shutting down to protect the computer, after which it shuts down.
Any help?

Thanks

Franco

I never heard of any legal udf recording. I'd suspect they are trying to give you malware.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Jefro,

my DVD is a commercially available product, bought at a local store, sealed under a transparent plastic membrane as all the commercially available disks are. It is produced by Decca and still has the Decca logo on the cover.It is not a pirated product and there cannot be therefore any malware issue. As to the UDF, I found it out by running the DVD through the GSpot software..
THere must be some other reason why I cannot play it in my DVD drive.
It plays in my DVD player, though, but the audio, strangely, is not stereo. It plays only into one of the two ear-pieces of my stereo ear-phones, which work otherwise perfectly

Thank you anyway

F.V.

Maybe your understanding of UDF is different than mine.

Look at event logs.

Jefro,
there are no two ways about understanding what UDF format is : it is one of the possible file formats in which CD's or DVD's are recorded. UDF means UNIVERSAL DISK FORMAT. GSpot has read the file system of the disk as UDF. I am not familiar with the technicalities of UDF, other that it is a file system.
If yhou have a different understanding, I am curious to know..
Bottom line, I haven't got the slightest clue about why this DVD doesn't play in my DVD drive and causes the computer to crash . Maybe it has nothing to do with the UDF format, but I got suspicious reading on the internet that some DVD players can't read UDF format.
Any other clues?
Thanks
Franco

If it does not properly (stereo) play in DVD player and other DVD's do then there is something wrong with the disk. This something wrong is probably causing the problem with your computer, especially if other DVD's play correctly on the computer. This something wrong could just be a bad recording job, but I suspect that it is not and even if purchased from a reputable dealer, they could have been sold pirated software that really looked like the real thing. It could be the distributor or people who work at the distributor making a switch good product for bad.... Pirated software is not always made in someones garage, sometimes it comes in from China or 3rd world countries and is made in factories so the realistic packaging is not difficult to fake. Return it to where you purchased it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Windows has a thing called Event Viewer. It is a reporter of various events. When you get this crash you can then go to the Event Logs and view in many cases the reasons for the crash.

A CD should never crash a computer.

Sony put rootkits on millions of computers.
