I am trying to transfer a collection of home videos from VHS to DVD for my mother for Mother's Day. I am using the record and edit feature, in order to have each separate event (party, holiday, etc) available to select on the menu screen. I have chosen 4 clips, totalling 45 minutes in length and burned them to a DVD. The quality is set at "best" and I have not selected either autofit or span. I get this message when I try to play it in my Samsung Blu-Ray/DVD player - "The disc cannot be played. Please check the TV system."; I get the same error when I try it on our other player which is a Sony. I have used both a memorex DVD+R, and a Verbatim DVD-R and gotten the same result. All of these discs play on my computer without any issues, but will not do ANYTHING on a DVD player.
The ONLY way that I have had success playing on a DVD player was when I did not use the edit feature, and only pushed play and transferred the whole tape to one disc.
