Stuck CD tray

How To Fix Locked CD Tray Caused By Cyberlink PowerDVD 17 for Windows 7

Copyright © 2019 By Chongchen Saelee

If you’ve previously used Cyberlink PowerDVD 17 (or previous versions) to watch your Blu-ray disc movies, you might encounter a problem the next time you use the program again when you seemingly cannot open your CD tray. The CD tray might eject partially and then quickly return into the slot. It’s as though gremlins have hijacked your CD tray and messing with you!

Fear not, it’s not a virus. It’s definitely not gremlins. It’s because PowerDVD 17 has stored some data in it’s cache system thinking a disc is still in the CD tray. I assume it does this for DRM (digital rights management) purposes, to prevent users from copying the movies. Anyway, while that data is still in PowerDVD 17’s cache, you won’t be able to get that CD tray open. So you need to CLEAR THE CACHE. (more…)

True 4K resolution Blu-rays are coming

http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=14923

My god, why? I’m just getting used to standard HD (720p or 1080p). Now they want to sell us 3840 × 2160p x 60fps. Sure, things will look more lifelike, but I can’t imagine anyone having the time to appreciate it. People work, people are busy, they really don’t give a rat’s ass about ALL THAT RESOLUTION. Who really needs that kind of resolution besides feds and surveillance junkies? Even porn failed to sell this new tech, and they even tried 3D HD!

Well, we’ll see. It’s becoming more like, who cares? Try telling a decent story for a change rather than just peddling a better looking picture.

Salvaging The Defunct Basic Instinct Bluray

Originally published Oct. 13, 2009 – I don’t know if it’s a fact or not, but I’m suspecting Lionsgate did a silent recall on their distribution of early editions of the “Basic Instinct” Bluray disc (BD). Apparently, my almost mint-condition copy of the Basic Instinct BD doesn’t play anymore. I was able to play it on a PlayStation 3 (PS3) a year ago when I first purchased the BD, but after the PS3’s firmware was updated, Basic Instinct failed to playback. It doesn’t run on a PC player either. (more…)
