dvd created in earlier verison


Howcome

Question

Does EC9 have capability to correct this issue and allow dvd to be played on home dvd player? DVD was created from digital camera source using an earlier version of EC (version 7). The DVD will play on the computer but fails to play on home DVD player. I have tried several different brands of players all with out any luck. I have tried the copy function of EC9 and got what I expected a duplicate of the orginal which also will not play on home player.

That depends on how he's playing it. If it's just a .MPG or.AVI file, and he's playing it in WMP, or something like that, then it won't play on a DVD player.

 

So, we need to know more about the way the original disc was made, did you make it with DVD Builder? What are the files on your DVD, is there a Video_TS folder and .VOB files? To make a playable DVD, it must be "authored", which creates the proper files and file structure on the disc for a DVD player to be able to play it.

 

Let us know.

 

Ooops!! Thanks for pointing that out Dave. I assumed the OP have made a video DVD, but it certainly could have been a data DVD, which would explain why it would play on the computer and not on a TV top player. My bad :rolleyes:

If the DVD plays correctly on the computer, there is nothing wrong with the burned disc and using EMC9 will not help. I know you said you used different brands of players, but did you try different brands and types (-R and +R) discs? Also, try burning at the lowest speed available. That sometimes helps increase the compatibility of discs with players. Finally, try burning to an image (iso) file and then burning the iso to disc. Most of us have found that that solves some compatibility problems.

Copy or capture the contents of the original DVD. Try copying the VOB to your hard drive first. Then add them to VideoWave which should take them as is. Do any editing you want and output them to a mpg2 file for DVD best quality. Add them to MyDVD and then encode to an ISO file. Again best quality. When that finishes, open Disc Copier and navigate to the ISO file. You can preview that ISO in Disc Copier. If it is OK, just copy the ISO file to the disc using the Copier program.

 

If the VOB files won't work, rename them as mpg files. Make sure Windows is not hiding know extensions. Use those files in Video Wave.

 

If neither of the above work, capture the DVD video to your hard drive using Media Import. Capture as AVI if you want to edit them or mpg2 if not. If you capture to mpg2, just use those in MyDVD when you "add movie".

 

Use DVD Info Pro (Home Page, application, look under utilities.) to check for errors on the disc. Did you copy the original files to the disc using something like Creator Classic or did you encode them and burn them to the disc using My DVD?

Thanks for the prompt and helpful reply. Yes I have tried several different types of disks previously when I became aware of the problem. Issue at hand is the only source I have is on the dvd which will not play on the home player. I am looking for a method which will allow me to copy the contents and then burn onto another disk which will be enabled to play on a home player.

What brands and types of blank media are you using?

memorex +R; -R;+RW; SONY -RW; VERBATIM +RW;

 

The Memorex is junk, but the Sony may actually be Taiyo Yuden, if made in Japan, and the Verbatim should be good.

 

Put the disc that you are trying to copy, in your drive. Click on the Roxio icon on your desktop, click on Applications, then click on DVD InfoPro in the right side column.

 

Click on the 6th icon from the left, then make sure that the burner that the disc is in is the one listed below left. Click on Start, and let the program examine the disc for errors. It will take awhile, so be patient.

 

If there are a lot of CRC errors, you may not be able to copy the disc.

 

EDIT: Oops! I see that Steve already suggested this. If you haven't done it already, do it.
