Just got Roxio Easy! Media Creator 10 and when I burn a DVD+RW it will read ok on pc and xbox but not on my sony dvd player.However when i burn the self same RW disc with my older Sonic my DVD program it works fine Bizzare or what. Anyone had similar problems?

There are many types of Chip Sets available for DVD player/burners and the disc acceptance list varies between them all.
Commercial -'stamped' disks[movies] play on them all
but the 8 types of burned formats can vary.
RW disks CD or DVD are renowned for only playing on the equipment that made them
So to get one playing on a TV style player is good fortune indeed.
Strangely it is the ASDA or Curry's £20 cheapie that can be the most versatile.

Double check that you're actually writing in DVD format and not just as a data disc. Sonic has probably got all this set, Roxio could just have one check box needing to be checked! It could be as simple as the writing speed

Hi again, I have solved it!!!!!!!!!!!
Got refund on Roxio and now using Nero which absolutely flies on my PC with no probs at all.
