DVD player

If while watch a DVD on my DVD player I get sleepy and stop the DVD and take the DVD out of the machine, and then later put it back in, how can I get back to the point that I stopped the DVD? Thank you. user470

I believe the DVD has to stay in the player

AFAIK, this feature can only work if you actually keep the physical disk in the tray. Our inexpensive JVC DVD/VCR combo has this feature, as does my LG portable DVD player.

There may be PC-based software to mark viewing points when watching on a PC drive, but I don't have any experience with this sort of feature on a standlone DVD unit.

I'm all ears if someone know more about these type of features.

Keeping point of play

Even if you keep the DVD disc in the player, some players will allow you to resume play from where you stopped and others don't. I haven't figured out if this is a feature of the DVD player or the dics encoding. But if you take the DVD out of the machine, I've never seen a DVD player resume. My iMac and Mac Laptop computers have this feature, but this is a feature of the DVD Player program.
