Trouble burning DVDs from Torrents

Hi all, I have some great shows that I've downloaded from this site. But I have a problem - when I burn DVDs, the discs won't play in my DVD player. I know they are in NTSC format (the only format I can play), and everything I'm doing seems correct. I simply drag the VIDEO_TS folder into my burning program. It looks like it burns all the way through, but the resulting disc will not play. Does anyone know anything I should do differently? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: Trouble burning DVDs from Torrents

what program do you use to burn with?
what disc-type are you burning -- DVD-Video or DVD-ROM (UDF) or etc...?
what brand of discs are you using?

Re: Trouble burning DVDs from Torrents

Yeah, we need more info, my guess is you're not using the correct application, within your burning software, or your player cannot recognize dvd/r discs. Older models may not see "+" discs or any "R" discs, have you tried them in a 2nd Player? If you load the finished disc into your PC does it autoplay to a player, what does your PC view the disc as? Most likely if your PC will play it, it's a player issue, if your PC doesn't play it, or you have to open a folder or somehow coax it into playing, then your burn method is at fault

Re: Trouble burning DVDs from Torrents

Hi, I am using the basic software that came with my computer, Drang & Drop CD & DVD. I drag the VIDEO_TS to the data section (the only one that will take it), and I am burning onto Maxell DVD-R discs (which usually play perfectly on my standalone player.) My player has no problem reading burned discs. I can play both +R and -R formats. I have tried my discs in two different players, but it will not work anywhere.

Re: Trouble burning DVDs from Torrents

it sounds like yer burning what we refer to as a "data disc" as opposed to a "watchable disc"...each SA DVD player has its own quirks re: what it will play and what it won't

first, i'd find a more reliable program...ONES would be my preference if yer on the Windows OS [which i'm assuming you are], Nero after that

second, research online what type of discs yer DVD player will play...google + make + model + specs should get ya the info you are looking for...my guess is you need to burn as a "DVD-Video" for yer player to recognize the disc

other than that, it may be the particular show yer tryin to burn...some sorta errors mabe?
