Main Menu Theme Not Seen, But First Title Plays, On Burned Dvd


newjourney2006

Question

When inserting a burned DVD into a DVD (TV) player, the Main (TitleMenu1) Menu does not display, but if I press play, on the remote, the first title will play. I have more then one DVD (TV) player. With the same disc, Main Menu is always seen when playing on a computer.

 

DVD Builder's "Preview" shows Main Menu with no problem!

 

USING DVD+R, On my Toshiba SDV290 (reads DVD+R) the Main Menu display is intermittent. Sometimes it's there, and sometimes it not. When display is missing I can press play and first title always plays OK.

 

USING DVD-R, On my Samsung DVD511 (reads DVD-R) it always says "error reading disc", but I can press play and first title always plays OK.

 

My Main Menu is the theme "Feature Presentation" in DVD Builder ver 7.5.2.49ENU.

 

My burner is a Emprex DRW1108UI external (USB 2.0) 8x DRIVE.

 

In DVD Builder I added 2 titles, one for a January birthday and one for a Feb birthday.

Each title was a mpeg2 file created by using VideoWave. Their content is stills and avi videos. The first title is 3.5 Gb, the second is 0.7Gb. EMC DVD Builders shows I have approx 0.5Gb free space when burning.

 

My steps have been:

1)Using VideoWave, create a story from stills & video, then save to mpeg2 file.

2)In DVD builder, select theme, then add my two mpeg2 files

3)In DVD builder, preview, then burn for NTSC DVD.

4) After burn, move disc to DVD (TV) player

 

Why the problems for DVD (TV) players, but no problem when playing on my computer?

And what do I do to increase the compatibility between players?

 

thanks for the help!

First guess is MEDIA.

 

If you have one, try a DVD-R or –RW. It may be that your players will be happier with 'dash' media as opposed to 'plus' media.

 

 

Thanks for your response!

 

Yes, I burned both a +R and a -R. Then played both discs in both DVD (TV) players. Same results. No differences in playing a + or - burn. I also replaced the Main Menu Theme with another Theme, results were the same. Results: Main Menu plays on computer OK, intermittent on my Toshiba, and disc error on my Samsung. Again if I press "play", the first title will play OK.

 

I have to wonder if the Main Menu is coded to a standard, or the DVD (TV) players do not all read to the same coded standard for Main Menu?

 

Thanks
