Will only playback using Roxio DVD player

Question

I've upgraded both my Plextar firmware as well as my NiVidia Video Drivers. I burned a slide show and it will not only Not play on any TV DVD player but it will only play using the Roxio DVD player. I tried to access the files using "Microsoft XP Explorer" and I get a message that it is a type of file that windoes does not recognize. I tried three times, I unchecked the boxes recommended in another post and that did not help at all.

 

I was burning about 800 slides and it took up about 1/2" on the disk when burned. I used another program I had and it would only let me put on 500 slides and it filled the disk.

 

What is happening here. Any ideas? Don't talk media because I've only used Plextar recommended media for the past three years and have had no media failures.

 

HELP!

 

I'm using Roxio 9, Create a DVD with My DVD. I unchecked the "fit to Disk" box

You have given no information on how you created your slideshow so we have no idea what is happening or can even offer any suggestions. What program in the suite did you use? Please give some information!

 

"I tried three times, I unchecked the boxes recommended in another post and that did not help at all." means nothing at this point since we don't know to what post you are referring to.

What type of media are you using and have you been using a blank disk every time? DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD-R/W, DVD+R/W or something else ? Are the TV DVD players rated for the media type you are using?

The only media I use and have been using for at least three years is RIDATA DVD+R, I have never had a problem with any disk playing on any of my players. This Slideshow disk I made will only play using the Roxio DVD player on my computer. It plays just as planned there. Windows does not even recognize the file, it tells me it is a file that Windows does not use. I have no way to tell if it burned as an >avi file or not. I can say that it took about an hour or more to process and then only took up a very small space on the disk. I've burnt 3 disks and all have the same problem. I followed all the instructions for making the DVD and it makes me wonder if the disk is finalized. I tried to finalize it again but the program will not do it. I finally gave up and used a ULEAD program I have had for years and it worked perfectly. I'm disappointed that everyone seems to be having a problem and all the help we get is "try new media" ot "try another DVD player". It has to be a problem with the program. Not everyone has burning problems. Like I said I've upgraded the drivers for both my burner and video card.

Switch to Verbatim media. The last good Ritek media I used, was over 3 years ago.

I doubt very much that your problem is media related. You never answered any of my questions so I am unable to offer any further suggestions. It should not burn a avi file by the way. I have no idea what file you are ven talking about. What are the filenames on the disc (DVD) including the extension?

I had edited my origianl post to answer your question. I unclicked "fit to disk" and I'm using Roxio9, create a DVD with My DVD. I have no way to tell what kind of a file it saved. My windows explorer cannot read the disk. I get a message that it is not a windows suppoted file. It will play just fine using the Roxio player.
