Data burning to DVD but then not able to view.

  shreked 18:13 13 Sep 2018

I have a issue where I burn to DVD no problem but when I put the burnt DVD in it shows the 2 files and the program to play them. When I open the player it does not show 1 file despite it saying its on the DVD.

I tried by saving to the PC desktop and it does both files fine so that rules out the player being defective.

Someone said to me possibly UDF? Ive tried windows disk burning app and also CD Burner program off the internet as seen windows disk burner an issue?

Ive tried DVD + and - and still have same issue so that rules it out.

Anyone any ideas??

Thanks I have Windows 7

UDF is universal disk format ,Windows media player I'm sure can't play it,have you tried VLC player

Has the DVD disc been finalised by your 'burner' software?

Im burning .DAV file and the software to view.

I dont think it finalising as when I burnt to DVD I could still add data afterwards and they are not DVD RW's

Finalise DVD might be in the settings/write options of your software - possibly a tick-box.

[btw, Imgburn has this option - the version I've got is 2.5.1.0 and was freeware several years ago.]

Camcorder files? might be easier to convert them to another file type MP4 or something?

Finalise DVD might be in the settings/write options of your software - possibly a tick-box. -- Will give it a go

Camcorder files? might be easier to convert them to another file type MP4 or something? Unfortunally cant as they are files for court.

Are you loading the Viewing Software onto your PC before trying to view the .DAV File?

or just putting the DVD into the slot and hoping for the best
