Re: Durning a DVD

i'm *almost* positive it only occurs when burning a DVD-Video, not a data disc [DVD-ISO or DVD-UDF]...if i get some time ni the next few days, i'll run a few tests and see.

i'm sure the program gives you two [or more] options for "disc type", a "data disc" or a "watchable dvd". in nero, you burn a data disc [called DVD-ISO] for archiving/trading purposes, and a "DVD-Video" to watch ona standalone.

i'm not sure what RecordNow calls em, but probly similar...maybe you burned a "data disc" type, and yer standalone can't read it?

Damn, this is maddening. So what the heck, I tried downloading burnatonce. Then I noted I also had to download ProDVD, which I did. Then I dutifully plugged in the required key code. Everything seemed to set up OK. Twice I tried to burn a DVD, with the same result: My burner kicked it out and burnatonce said "there were some errors, consult the key log." Checking the burnatonce forums, it said that the most common errors were an incorrect key code (not likely, as I copied/pasted it) or expired version of ProDVD, also not likely as I just downloaded it. Unless someone's got a clue about this, Nero here I come. So far I've tried ArcSoft, DVD Santa and now burnatonce. Maybe the fourth time's the charm?

Re: Newbie DVD burning software question

OK, I'm ready to throw in the towel. Just downloaded the demo version of Nero. I burned a DVD following the instructions on videohelp.com. It plays fine on my PC, but WILL NOT PLAY on my standalone. I get the same "This type of disc cannot be played."

What the heck am I doing wrong? My standalone player will play any commercial DVD as well as DVD+Rs friends have burned and DVD+Rs I burned from my digital camcorder movies. But it won't play these discs burned from VIDEO_TS folders. I've got about 10 gig of video on my hard drive right now that I can't view except on my computer. I've got a friend who's totally into Pink Floyd who I would like to send the Live 8 set to, but I don't have any idea if it will play on his standalone. Help!!!

Re: Newbie DVD burning software question

Have you tried to do it however your friends did it? Do you have an external drive you can take to your friend's and burn it there? Or actually you can give them the DVDs you burned and have them rip it and burn it and see if it works.

But don't give up!

Im guessing you are on a PC.


Nero or Roxio will do fine.

Re: Newbie DVD burning software question

Well hallelujah! Nero worked. Just popped a disc I made with it into my standalone, and the menus worked and it played fine. Guess I should have saved myself the trouble and went with Nero in the first place.

Many thanks to all of you who offered advice and help. Case closed: Mission accomplished!

Oh yeah, just to clarify my previous post about Nero not creating a disc that I could play on my home unit. Turns out--like the newbie fool I am--I used PAL format files (of the Pink Floyd Live 8 performance) for my test burn, so no surprise that they didn't play on my U.S. format standalone. Last night I downloaded the NTSC version, and then it worked like a charm. Lesson learned, the hard way. Sorry to raise such a ruckus, but all's well that ends well. Thanks again!

Re: DVD software?

I'm loving RecordNow!. Haven't had a problem yet. And the DVDs I burn as data with extra stuff outside the VIDE0_TS folder have played with no problems.
