DVD's wont' work on home dvd player

  naggis 09:45 31 Mar 2005

I have just bought a second batch of Datawrite Red DVD -R blank discs. Previously dvds writen on this media have worked ok on my home dvd player. This lates batch don't. I have tried writing a dvd file which worked on the previous batch but no good.
Can anyone tell me what is going on.

was your dvds made on your computer .because your home player may not play them ..have you noticed the price of dvd players for computers have dropped to £36 quid (scan),no ones buying them ,and why? they are rubbish in my estimation .lets see .when the blue ray comes out and they settle on plus or minus .

What a load of garbage, the reason why they are 36 quid is because everyone is buying them. Blu-Ray work on the exact same principle but with a different wavelength blue laser rather than a near visible red one, given the lands/pits and burn marks are going it be even smaller what leads you to believe it will be a more resiliant format?

Back to the original question, Datawrite Reds historicaly are poor discs and normaly use a really nasty dye, the chances are you got a bad tub.

A duff batch perhaps. Very frustrating but it might be worth a trip back to where you got them from or trying someone elses DVD player/recorder.

fitcher - DVD writers have not dropped in price because they are naff and no ones buying them. Quite the opposite it in fact.
