Finally, this is strange but does work for me on 1 of my players---put in a store bought dvd, let it play then take it out and put your home made disc in. Can't tell you why this works for me sometimes.

 

I have seen this before, laser getting weak and will fail only gets worse. Another problem with smokers, get the big brush wet system cd dvd cleaner. Don't use there cleaning fluid that comes with it, leaves a residue. Use isopropyl alcohol pure as you can find.

The one I have does have a brush and does not come with any liquid at all....I'm not a fan of the liquid cleaners.

That's the small brush then, there is a large with liquid.

Have a JVC 7 disc changer and it did this. Four years old finally it wouldn't read much.

It was out of warranty and the repair shop wanted $50.00 to look and clean it. So here's what I did. Open the tray unplug machine. Take four screws out of cover. When the cover is removed your looking at the laser pickup, under the tray. Mine had a metal guard with two screws, I removed the guard and took a q-tip to the laser's. Mine had two spring loaded laser's, just made sure I was gentle and rubbed the isopropyl alcohol and q-tip over them. It worked and works fine to this day.

I'm not a fan of the liquid cleaners myself, that's why I suggested the isopropyl alcohol.

I burnt my first DVD VIDEO with menu using MYDVD8, then tried it on my PC, it works.

 

Then i tried it on my HOME DVD. It reads the intro but freezes trying to find the menu.

 

Any ideas ??

 

thanks

 

Your home DVD player may not like the media that you are using. Try a different brand or type. Make sure that your home player can play the type (+R or -R) that you get.

Home made dvd's aren't always liked by all dvd players. However, there are some things you can do that might help.

Keep your dvd player clean. One of my players is very sensitve to dirt.

Try a different brand of media, preferably one the manufacturer suggests.

Instead of burning directly to disc in MyDVD, save to an image file then burn to disc with Disc Copier. This just seems to work better for me.

I wonder what harm one of the air can blowers would do (at a distance) for those who are fearful to take their drives apart.
