Discs Will Not Play

Question

I made my second discs today using the easy vhs to dvd 3 program. I split the program in half, to get the best quality on the discs. The program worked flawlessly....BUT when the discs are played in my dvd player, I get "this disc cannot be played or recorded".

I tried to use dvdshrink to re-do the files on the disc. The video is there, and it encoded into a file on my computer, and I re-burned a new disc with imgburn....but I have the same issue.

Can anyone help?

 

By the way, the first time I used this, it worked and played fine. That was two months ago.

Why are you fooling around with DVDshrink and ImgBurn? Did you create an image file or folder set? That would be the only way you can use ImgBurn to create a video DVD. If you simply nurned a file to a DVD then all you have is a data disc which cannot be played on DVD players. (depending on the video format)

why am I fooling around with IMGBurn and DVDShrink? Becasue I wasted my time trying to make a dvd disc with my roxio easy vhs to dvd 3 program. The discs wont play and I was trying to fix them instead of starting all over and trashing the discs. Can you offer me a solution? Am I missing something? Doesnt the Roxio program make DVD's that are compatable with DVD players?

 

Let me start over. I placed a vhs tape in my VCR. I hooked up the cables. I opened up the program and hit record, import,edit. It found my signal and I hit "record". The tape played and the program recorded the program. When it was over, I placed a disc in the computer and I imported the program that I had just copied. I split the program for the best quality. When it recorded the first disc, it prompted me to insert another disc. When it finished that disc, it said I was finished.

 

Those discs will not play in my dvd player.

 

I dont know what I did wrong?

Are you using the correct DVDs for your player?

 

Do the DVDs work on your computer?

It was burned on a Sony DVD-R and the disc plays in Windows Media Center.

 

If the DVD plays correctly in Windows Media Center then the VHS2DVD-3 program worked correctly and the problems appears to be between the DVD disc and your DVD player. Does it play on any of you your DVD players?

The common element with all the failed burns is... the Burner and the Player :huh:

 

Check the Player by feeding a previous disc you have burned.

 

Before replacing the Burner try to get your hands on a couple of Verbatim discs (known to be Good is made in Singapore ;) ) In fact if you can locate a DVD RW by Verbatim, it could be used to test with since it is erasable.

 

I have used Sony media with good results but understand Sony has never made a single disc! They farm it out for bids...

 

Some Players, oddly enough it is the high end ones, are particular about their burned media.

 

Let us know what you find.

Go to device manager and expand the DVD/CD- Rom drives and grab a screen capture of your drives and post it.

I KEEP POSTING THIS AND IT KEEPS DISAPPEARING!!! You guys are really good at NOT answering questions! I did all this. After starting VHS2DVD3:

 

select the "Record, Edit and Save" option and then Start new project

then select "Import Video" and then in the new window that opens, navigate to the folder containing your mpg file and select it and then click Open.

Then select the arrow near the right bottom of the screen (ready to export) and then select the device you want to burn (DVD) and then click burn. I used Verbatim 4.7GB -R DVDs. tested finished discs with Cyberlink AnyDVD 10. They appeared to play fine. However, after burning 7 DVDs and making 7 sets of copies, I tried playing them in my Samsung Blu-ray 5500 and another Samsung Blu-ray/DVD player. I got the following error: "Cannot play disc. The video format of the disc does not meet required video output format of this product. Disc purchased from abroad may not be playable." They play fine in my old LG DVD Player! I checked the Properties of a vod file, it said "Frame Size 720x576 (525/60)". Don't bother telling me I created a Data Disc or PAL File, I cannot even find settings for doing that. Where can you tell this program to create DATA DISCS FROM VIDEO FILES OR CHANGE TO OR FROM PAL, whatever that is? I did as described above, and got what I told you. I even tried burning one 5 Min. video to DVD to make sure file size was not an issue. I got the same error from player. FROM READING THIS STREAM, IT SEEMS TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THE SOFTWARE. OR WHAT???

No one told you that your post was split off so that you can get the personal attention that you need? Did you get a message to that effect? Look at the top of this page to see if a message was sent. BTW, I did not split off the topic. Your topic is here (link).
