Bear with me, this is my first entry into the DVD world.

Installed MyDVD9 which came bundled with a Vista laptop on XP-pro. Did get a message about a incompatible plug-in.

Made a simple DVD project consisting of a couple of short movies. Burned as a PAL DVD (used Sony DVD-R disc). DVD works fine on my computer and loads on the DVD player (menu displays on TV). However, pressing play or enter on the DVD player has no effect.

Anybody as any ideas about why this is happening or how to fix it?

Any help is much appreciated, thanks Ann.

Some players don't like home made dvd's.  I had an older player that did this more times than not and tried different discs, slower burns and cleaning the drive.  Sometimes this helped but  in the end, I got a new dvd player and I never have this problem anymore.
Since it's also possible it's not the player, first try different brands of discs, preferably the ones recommended by the player manufacturer.  Try burning at a slower speed as well to see if this helps.

I'm using a Toshiba SD 4980 (modified to code-free and PAL/NTSC compatibility, originally made for US). Disc is intended for Europe, but I'm obviously not sending it off until it works here. All commercial DVDs have worked without any problems.

Did you try slowing down your BURN speed?  I have DVDs that work great when produced 4X but won't start properly using 8X (even though they are DVD-R 16X).

Tried burning at 2X with the same result. One more piece of info: The navigation doesn't work either. My menu uses two pages and the arrow button that moves between the pages has the exact same problem.

I am experiencing this same problem using MY DVD9 and a Toshiba SD-4000K.

I have tried many things myself and have come to the conclusion that the Roxio burner encoding does not work on this dvd player.

I am considering trying to download the nero eval and see if I have the same issue.

One thing to note the file listing on my dvd has a folder called RoxioPlasma I have no idea what this is for but it seems out of place. Most burners don't add their own folders.

I will be monitoring this thread as well as posting anything I Have found out about this problem.

Hopefully we can find an answer!

Since the last person to post to this thread, last visited the forums in August, there isn't much to monitor.  If the DVD plays on your computer, then your burn was good.

BTW, Roxio doesn't make burners.  They make software.  And the Roxio Plasma folder is normal for EMC 9.  You also have the Video_TS folder on your DVD, which contains your video and audio.
Life is good!

Thanks Grandpa Bruce,

I already knew that Roxio makes software but thanks for pointing it out.

After many trials and errors smile.gif I downloaded the Nero try before you buy version 8 and burned a DVD with that version. It worked fine. Looks like Roxio is the culprit in my case could be in yours too.

This is ok since, like someone pointed out earlier, there is no real standard in this industry and different media works differently from player to player, with that said, I wonder why Roxio is having problems with Toshiba like this.

By they way, I have been testing and developing software for 26 years, I have used many software packages to burn cd's dvd's etc. my two favorites at the moment happens to be express burn and Windows DVD Maker on Vista, but I also use different software packages on other platforms like Idvd and DVD Maker to author DVD's that I have created.

Enough, I have to get back to work and put this problem to bed.

Hope all this info helps someone!

Bill
