Analogue video problems


JimmyF

Question

My specs:

 

Pentium D940 3.3Ghz

800 MHz front side bus

socket 775

Intel 945P

360GB hard drive

7200RPM

GEforce 7600GS

Realtek ALC 882 chipset

XP Media Centre

 

HP Pavillion Media Center TV m7480

 

Have captured analogue video through coaxil cable and this seems ok. When burning though it gets to the end with no problems but doesn't play on DVD player. It does play through wmp on the above machine but other pcs dont recognise the disk. Is there a reason why they don't recognise the disk but the above computer does??

 

Help would be greatly appreciated,

Jimmy

Will try it again tomorrow when i can get a different DVD

 

Thanks for your help, i wouldn't have a clue myself.

Found a different DVD and that has worked! Result!

The original DVDs were DVD-RW though whereas the one that worked was only DVD-R. Would that have an impact?

 

Am i better off leaving DVD-RW alone?

 

Thanks for your help

Unless you are using them for testing purposes, you shouldn't be using a DVD-RW.

What program did you use to burn the disc?

Run the Disc and Device Utilities on the disc and tell us what it says.

 

Look at the disc with Explorer and tell us what folders and file extensions are on it.

 

Roxioplasma folder with 2 x DAT files and 1 Projects data (Roxio MYDVD project)

and

video_TS with BUP IFO and VOB files

 

I don't know how to run disc and device Utilities, can you tell me how?

Thanks

D&D Utility is under Tools in every program as well as form the Roxio Home program. But not much need from what you already provided.

 

I suspect it is a media issue. Your disc is fine but some Players are very finicky about what they are feed.

 

Generally the more expensive ones are the hardest to please whereas the cheap ones will do their best to play a slice of Bologna, provided they can get the tray closed.

 

Verbatim, HP, Sony, TDK are known brands. Others like Memorex are consider dumpster fugitives.

 

If you used 'dash' media, try 'plus' or vice versa.
