As mentioned above. DVD players vary enourmously in what they will or will not accept quite apart from zoning issues in manufactured disks. There are several standards of format 2 sorts of ISO and 'Joliet' which I yet to find work on anything
The general standard that seems to work on most is ISO 9660. make sure you select that and keep the burn speed down -4 to 6 it is worth the wait.
my home dvd player only recognises dvd minus disks.but the newer ones should recognise plus and minus.when i got my burner i bought a pack of each.i just use the plus ones for pc backups etc and the minus ones for anything that i might want to view on other players.
It is Sony DVP-NS405 and has always played copies before. Have just burned another film using CDBurnerXP pro3 and still won't play, in pc either, message "UNKNOWN FILE FORMAT" appeared on pc. I am using RiDisc 8x DVD-R discs.
and found that the DVDs they supply would not play on my home player. Checking it out, I discovered that my Toshiba player would not play any recordable discs - only commercially pressed DVDs. This is true of many older DVD players.
I bought a cheapo Sony DVD player which does play them.
I found a similar occurrence with my old Marantz CD player, which would no play CDRs. A new Marantz player will.
Ergo, if your CD/DVD player is a few years old, they are unlikely to be able to cope with new technology, which moves so fast.
