Cannot Play Dvd On Blu-Ray Player

Recommended Posts

I am able to play videos that I burned using Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus on my computer but I cannot get them to play in my Samsung Model #BD-C6500T Blu-Ray Player. I checked the manual and it stated that the player can play DVD+RW/-RW as well as DVD-R/+R which have been properly recorded and finalized, which I did using the Roxio software.

 

I used the software and included VHS to DVD converter to record two separate VHS tapes onto my laptop computer using Record, Edit and Save function shown on the software for recording multiple VHS movies. The first one was 2 hours in duration and ended up to be over 7 Gigs in size once on my computer. With this recording I split the movie into 2 and burned onto 2 DVD's as the software recommended. The second recording was about 80 minutes in duration and was just under 2 Gigs in size on my computer, so this fit onto one DVD for the burn process. All of these work well on my computer, but each of them are unrecognized by my Blu-Ray player, which comes up with this message and stops.

 

I used Maxell DVD's and also tried one of my Verbatim DVD's and this made no difference. The Blu-Ray player has played other Maxell DVD's that I have burned from .AVI videos from my computer prior to purchasing Roxio.

 

I've included a couple of screen shots that I've included for you to view the files from one of the 3 discs I burned yesterday after installing the software and recording from the VHS format to one that can be converted to DVD.

 

Cheers,

 

Geoff

Pic #2 Disc 3 isn't a DVD in the proper Video format.

 

Read the note at the bottom of your getting started manual.

 

I've owned one Samsung DVD player it was the worst player I have ever owned as far as reading disc's. I tossed it and bought a Phillips and it will play the disc's the Samsung wouldn't so will a Panasonic and Sony.

 

So as a test I would try some friends players that aren't a Samsung first.

Pic #2 just shows the 3 files that are in the folder ROXIOPLASMA, which was created by the Roxio software while buning. I'm not sure why they are included but think that the folder that is more likely to be read by the Blu-Ray player is VIDEO_TS, which is shown in Pic #4.

 

I appreciate the feedback about the Samsung player and will see if I can find someone who has a unit I can play the discs on... an older DVD only machine or another Blu-Ray machine as you have mentioned. But ultimately I will have to get the DVD's to work on the existing player as it is my Mother-in-Law's unit and the movies that are being converted are her old home movies as well.

CMC Magnetics Corp one of the poorest DVD manufactures out there, why Maxell farms out to them they are cheap!

 

Since your using +R that may be a problem with the Samsung. If I use DVD+R's I use ImgBurn to burn a folder set and have it set book type at DVD-Rom for +R disc's.

 

I would like a peek at the disc with VLC or a full Roxio suite that shows it is a DVD Video?

Okay... so I have to change the settings in my Laptop to burn NTSC... that makes a lot of sense. I never even thought of this and will check the manual for Pal or NTSC, but suspect I'll have to make this change to my laptop and re do the burn. Thanks for all your help. Although I know my way around computers, working with Video is relatively new for me. I'll let you know what the final results are.

User guide says NTSC only, so time to make the changes to my laptop so that this will burn correctly and be able to play on the Blu-Ray Player (I hope).

 

I'm in a image running C2011 with W-7. My EV2D 3 Plus is on a W-8 image on another drive and I will have to boot to it and check. But I think you have the option in the program to change to a NTSC DVD.

Just to let you know that no matter what I did with the Roxio software I could not get the DVD to work on the Blu-Ray player. I switched to NTSC and tried this again with the same results of the player rejecting the DVD and stating that it would not work. I tried using the Verbatim DVD+RW with the same results. I even tried once to change to Best quality when burning the DVD and all this did was take several hours to complete with no difference to the end results.

 

Finally I went onto the web and downloaded a free video conversion software called Freemake, converted the saved Videos and burned them. Each time the DVD worked fine in the Blu-Ray player doing it with this other software, which tells me that there is a problem with the Roxio Software that I have purchased. The capture portion works perfectly, but for some reason even after making the changes you suggested above, the DVD will not work in the Blu-Ray player. Another thing that the Freemake conversion software did for me was to compress the 7 gigs for the one video that I would have had to split using Roxio, onto 1 DVD, with the quality of the picture still being fairly good considering that this came from an old home movie on VHS.

 

I am not happy with this purchase and will be speaking to Roxio customer support about this to see if they can rectify the situation. I do however, thank you for your support and the advice you have given me as I've learned a lot about converting from VHS to DVD and which make and type of DVD I will purchase for additional movies.

What are the properties, details, when you switched it to NTSC?

 

I had no problem switching my NTSC default to a Pal DVD yesterday.

As a fix to my previous post, I did as Geoff.F suggested and used a different program to burn the dvd. It was actually easy. I used Adobe Premier Elements 10 Video Editor to burn the mpeg files created by EVTD3+ and the dvd plays on any player. I am using Memorex discs, so nothing special. I had contemplated returning EVTD3+ and trying a different brand of VHS to DVD product, but after reading reviews for other products the results were just as inconsistent as for EVTD3+ so will continue with this workaround.
