Handling CDs
Playing Music CDs
To avoid damaging a CD, follow these
guidelines:
The PC includes MusicMatch Jukebox
(select models) or Windows Media Player.
This software lets you play music CDs.
Return the CD to the case when you are
finished using it.
Handle the disc by its outside edges or center
hole only.
Do not touch the unlabeled side of a CD or
place the unlabeled side down on your desk.
Doing so could scratch the surface of the CD.
Store CDs at room temperature.
Using MusicMatch Jukebox
This software lets you play music CDs, as well
as record digital music files, create music CDs
on your CD-RW drive, organize your digital
music into libraries, and listen to music over
the Internet.
If you are connected to the Internet when
playing a music CD, MusicMatch Jukebox
searches a CD database on the Internet,
displays the song titles in the Playlist area, and
then begins playing the CD. The next time you
play this CD, you don’t need to be connected
to the Internet — MusicMatch Jukebox keeps
the song titles.

Understanding DVD Terminology
Each title is divided into multiple chapters.
A chapter is a particular segment or scene in
the movie. When watching a DVD movie, you
have the ability to jump to the next chapter, the
previous chapter, or to a specific chapter.
A single image in a movie is called a frame.
Using the WinDVD Control Panel
The WinDVD control panel automatically
appears when you insert a DVD.
If you are playing a movie full screen and the
panel is hidden, you can redisplay it as follows:
1 Right-click anywhere in the video window.
2 Click Player. The control panel appears.
To understand the DVD controls, you should be
familiar with DVD terminology. Each DVD can
hold one or more titles. Most full-length movies
have only one title on the DVD, but some DVDs
include several short movies, with each movie
being a separate title.

Viewing Help Information
To see what a button does on the control
panel, place the mouse pointer on the
button; the button title appears onscreen.
To move the WinDVD control panel, place
the mouse pointer on the panel (but not on
a button), and drag it to the desired location
on the screen.
To resize the video window when it is not
full screen, place the mouse pointer on a
window corner and drag the border.
Or
Click the Full Screen button in the
upper-right corner of the WinDVD
control panel.
Using Country/Region Codes
DVDs sometimes come with country/region
codes imprinted as part of the disc data.
These codes prevent DVD movies from being
played in countries/regions of the world that
are different from where they were sold. You can
play DVDs from other countries/regions only five
times before the country/region code locks and
becomes permanent. Once the code locks, you
can only play DVDs from that country/region.
When the country/region code locks, if you
need help, contact HP Support.
The country/region number is usually placed
over a world globe printed on the DVD
packaging and disc.
DVDs without country/region codes will play on
any player or drive in any country/region.

WinDVD is not pre-set to a particular
country/region — the country/region code of
the first DVD movie you play determines your
DVD country/region.
For example, if you play a DVD with a
country/region 1 code, WinDVD sets the current
country/region of your DVD-ROM player to 1.
If you later play a DVD that is coded for a
different country/region, WinDVD asks if you
want to set this as the current country/region.
Warning: You can change the
country/region code only five times
before the setting becomes permanent.
When the country/region code locks, if
you need help, contact HP Support.
