Dvd Won't Play In Dvd Player

Question

I have a iso folder. I made a dvd disc. It plays on the computer but will not play in the dvd player. The player tells me I have a disc error. Any suggestions.

 

Also, I haven't tried a different disc. I will do that later.

 

thanks

Mike

What brand of media?

 

Set-top players can be very fussy about what they will and won't play. In general the 'cheap and nasty' ones from A.Non of Taiwan happily play anything you feed them (they use computer DVD-ROM drives for cheapness) while the more expensive ones get balky at cheap media.

 

However, sometimes using DVD+R instead of -R (or vice versa) will work too.

 

Use Verbatim or JVC/Taiyo Yuden for preference

Did you just copy that ISO to a disc? If so, that is what you have, a copy of an ISO.

 

If you want to make a playable disc, use the "Burn Disc Image" application under the data/copy tab.

 

What progam are you using to play the DVD on your computer?

What should be a "burn to disc?" Top burn an iso image file you have to use "burn image to disc"

 

What files do you see when you look at the nurned disc?

The question still remains - what brand of media are you using and is it DVD-R or DVD+R?

Get some quality DVDs such as Verbatims and dump the junk Imations.

 

BTW, there must be a few more files in thatVideo_TS folder. The list you posted does not show a proper DVD structure.

It appears that you have the valid structure you should have for a DVD Movie...

 

The things that can go wrong are cheap media, or even OLD media (I have had a cakebox of them go bad sitting on my shelf :huh: )

 

Also the Quality Setting and TIME can make trouble. A 4.7 GB holds about 1 hour of quality DVD Movie!

 

If you try to pack more on there, you do so by reducing Quality and many Players will not tolerate it! Combine that with lower quality media and you are creating a Lose - Lose situation :(

 

There are some other things that can cause problems too, but you have not supplied a detailed description of how you got from 'files' to 'DVD'. A lot can go astray between those two :P

Opened Roxio 2012

Burn disc to image

choose image (.iso) 4.19GB on a 4.7GB disc

copy to (dvd drive)

select green arrow.

 

I just went into options and this could be a problem. Everything was set to max.

 

I haven't tried a different dvd, but I will. I get an error code when loading.

 

thanks

Mike
