DVD Playback Issues

Question

Hello,

 

I am having a problem when playing a MY DVD produced disk on my tv DVD player.

I have saved an image file as well as burned several DVD's. Each time my DVD and image file will play on my computer as well as other computers, but DVD will noy play on my TV DVD player and gives an incorrect disk error. I have produced many DVD's in the past that have had no problem playing on my TV DVD player. I have tried both DVD-R and DVD+R with no resolve. Also have tried 4X speed to burn and still won't play. I still have previously created DVD's that will play on my player.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Dan

What brand of DVDs are you using and are they the same as the previous ones you used? It's possible that the batch you have are incompatible with the player (they are nooriously picky about what they will and won't play)

The DVD's Previously used were a no name brand (value disk),with the newer ones being HP,Playo, Memorex, and Khypermedia. I also have Teon+ and TDK+ that I haven't tried but will.

 

Thanks,

 

Dan

Dan,

check a disc in DVDInfo Pro located in EMC 9 tools. Use the CRC Read Error test, it's the icon with the magnifying glass. Use a disc that won't play in the DVD player.

Dan,

I have the same problem of not being able to play DVDs on the TV. I have been using Verbatim and Memorex. Any suggestions from anyone?

Paul Miyamasu,

You've posted twice now today to other threads and basically only provided information that your video card fails the diagnostic test and then "me too". It would be best if you could start your own thread with details of what issue(s) you are having (i.e. application used, steps you took, error messages, etc...) along with some information on your pc specs.

Thanks for everyone's help and suggestions.

 

It seems that some thing has changed on my computer that prevents EMC9 from working properly.

 

I have successfully burned my DVD from another computer, and will backup my data and start with a fresh

 

install of XP and Roxio. I know this will solve my problem.

 

Thanks again,

 

Dan

Likewise! Have you resolved the issue? I have burnt the DVD from my videofile and it appeared to do this successfully, although there appeared to be a problem at the encoding stage.

 

Anybody help please?

Will not play on home dvd player line is growing...various brands and types of disk used will play on computer fails to play on home dvd player. Could it be a problem exists in the ec9 software, which costs a great deal?

If it were the software, more people would be having the same problem. If the discs play on the computer, I would say there is nothing wrong with them. I have burned literally hundreds of DVDs and they have played fine on el cheapo DVD players up to a more expensive Sony DVD player.

 

Even though you have tried various types and brands of blank DVDs, very possible they were manufacturered by the same company. Use DVD Info Pro included with EMC 9 to determine the manufacturer of the blanks discs. I've read in many place that ANY discs made in Japan are usually good quality. The worse discs right now are made in China.

Hi,

I have a new computer running vista on which I have installed MyDVD9 and I too cannot play back DVDs on my domestic player (but they work fine on the computer). My old computer running XP and MyDVD6 continues to create DVDs that will run on my domestic player (a brand new SONY RDR-HXD860).

 

I have used a process of elimination to rule out the various different elements that could be causing the problem:

I have used the same source files on old & new computers.

I have created DVD image files on both computers and then burnt them on the other computer to rule out hardware incompatabilities on the DVD drive or a problem burning under Vista.

I have used the same DVD-RW disk (Verbatim) on both computers. I have also tried with Verbatim DVD-R disks.

 

The only element left that can be causing the problem is the output from MyDVD9. Needless to say DVDs that do not run on domestic players are of no use to me.

 

Can anybody help?? Thanks.

For several months I have had the same problem: Several DVD players and computer media players have been unable to properly play DVDs created with EMC9/MyDVD. This problem does not occur when I create DVDs using Nero on the same computer, with the same burner, using the same DVD media. Changing media, as some here have recommended, has made no difference in Roxio's performance. I must come to the same conclusion as Douglas: There is something about Roxio's encoding that renders it incompatible with some DVD players. I hope Roxio will address this issue so I can resume using MyDVD.

You didn't quite get that right, it should read: "There something lacking in industry standards that prevents consumer burned DVD from playing on every player in the world"

 

I have one Player in my circle of friends that will only play an RW and then not quite right. Burned it with several versions of Roxio as well as other burning software.

 

It's the Players!

Well stated. Lack of uniformity in industry standards also plagues the audio CD world. But it begs the question: What do Nero and commercial DVD software writers know that Roxio doesn't? I and other Roxio customers with whom I commiserate have far fewer problems with commercial DVDs and DVDs produced with Nero than we presently have with DVDs generated on the same equipment with Roxio's MyDVD.

Sounds logical, but like any other 'problem' if Roxio can't duplicate it, they can't fix it. I have used MyDVD 9 to burn 6 or 7 DVDs EVERY WEEK since it came it for my sister that doesn't have cable. Not a single one has refused to play. I've created multiple home videos and family reunion DVDs. Made copies for several family members and NONE of those had problems. After making hundreds of DVDs and those being played many different brands of players, I haven't had one person complain that a disc would not play.

 

I have no suggestions. It just doesn't seem to be a software issue.

I have had te same problem. Since upgrading to EMC9. The DVDs that I make will only play for about 80 seconds on any of the three players in my house. I did not have this problem when using DMC7. I am recording the same video, from the same computer, on the same drive, using the same DVD brands. I have tried other brands of DVD, I have used a different burner to no avail. I switched back to DMC7 - no problem. Switched back to DMC9 - problem returns. Since I use some of the sound editing capabilites that only exist in DMC9, I have downloaded some freeware that works very well for making a DVD from a videp file.

DVD Info Pro will not run on Windows x64 systems - from the README.HTM that comes with the installation.

 

It seems that EMC9 sees a difference between 32 and 64 bit systems. Is it possible that condition may explain the fact that some of us are having playback issues and others are not.

 

I run Windows on an AMD64 box and am unable to playback EMC9 created DVDs on my TV DVD player.

Up until last month I was using an AMD 3200 64 bit CPU and never had any problem with playing DVDs in my set top box (I'm now using an Intel Core Duo 64 bit)

 

What is more likely is the brand of media you're using is the problem - the CPU doesn't make any difference

 

However, in saying that, the OS can make a difference - XP 64 has no problems, but this forum is fuill of woes regarding Vista 64 bit
