Creating DVD's

  bce 15:46 03 Dec 2010

Hi, can anyone help please. I am trying to burn a DVD. I have tried burning a downloaded film (all above board) on to a DVD-R and a DVD+R disc. Both play back on my PC but will not play on my DVD player, I tried another DVD player in case mine was US but both refused to play. Cant see how to change format if that's what it is. Any ideas, Cheers BCE

Sounds as if you have not "Finalised" the disk.

Put it back in the PC open your burning program and finalise.

Hi What format was the film in and did you create a dvd video or just burned as is to the dvd For example if you explore the dvd does it come up as a video_ts folder which it needs to be. If not Use somehthing like dvd flick which is free add you r film file and it will create a dvd that will play on stand alone. If it does come up as a video_ts folder then possibly you did not finalise the disc though most decent software does this by default
