Burned Dvs Dont Play On Dvd Player

Question

I recently got the Roxio VHS to DVD 3 plus. I'm not much of a technology genius but installed the product to the laptop no problem and it burned the VHS to the DVD. Then when I went to playback the DVD on the DVD player it would skip an wouldn't play properly. The DVDS I'm using +RDL. Are these the correct ones to user should I use -RDL. Can anyone shed any light on this problem?

 

Thanks in advance

It's as likely to be the particular brand you're using, as the type. What brand of disc are you using, and how long in time is the program you're putting on the DVD?

 

Most people find it works better for them to record to their hard drive and then write to DVD. You have the opportunity to edit and "fiddle" with the captured video file, and you don't have to worry as much about a "hiccup" during the recording to disc. (You can easily start over without having to re-capture.)

TDK should be a good brand, but it's always worthwhile to try another brand too, and as you suggested "+" (plus) vs. "-" (dash) could make a difference in your player. Another reputable brand is Verbatim.

 

Single layer discs, at "best quality" hold just about 1 hour of video. Dual layer, about 2 hours. If you're trying to squeeze 4 hours (240 minutes) of video onto a dual layer disc, you'll likely start seeing some significant degradation of video quality. So, capturing to your HD first allows you to split the video up into multiple segments, add chapters (skip points) and the like, and create multiple discs to maintain video quality. And then you can write to your discs.

 

Hope that helps!

Okay, I heard from someone who does have Easy VHS to DVD, and it doesn't have the option to create actual "Chapters." At the very least though, you can split up your large captures using "split" and "Trim", and get it down to appropriate sizes to maintain quality on your DVDs.

 

You may also be able to split those into smaller pieces and add multiple "movies" onto one DVD in MyDVD, and have them play sequentially to create "quasi-chapters." But I'm not sure if those would play one after the other, or return to the main menu, which you probably wouldn't want.

Thanks. What I have now done is, I've got them all onto a folder within the Roxio setup and when I click on the video I want to burn onto a dvd, I'm not being given a option to burn it. The video plays fine on the laptop when I burned it to the folder within the Roxio folder. I've tried a couple of discs all of the same original brand I had before. I bought a pack of the Verbatim DVD +RDL but haven't tried them yet.
