Toast Burned Dvd Won't Play On Dvd Player


Hello Everyone,


I've created a DVD file and burned it to a Verbatim dual layer disc, using Toast Titanium 14. It plays fine on both Mac and PC multiple players, but won't play on a home DVD player, e.g. Panasonic or JVC. Any pointers in the right direction would be gratefully received. Thanks very much,

When you say, "DVD file", what exactly does that mean? What is the name and extension of what you've created? Does it include a folder that's named, "Video_TS"?


A playable DVD disc is not just a "file," it is a very specific folder structure with specific file types. You can't just throw a video file onto a DVD disc, and expect it to play in a set-top player. You have to Author the disc properly.


I'm not a Toast/MAC user so I can't help you with any specifics. You'll need to find the part of Toast that says, (to this effect): "Create a playable DVD disc" and follow the steps it leads you through, which should include, adding the video file I suspect you created.
