I'm really new at stuff like burning a DVD. I think I've done it correctly, but when I try to play it on a TV with an integral DVD player, I get a message on the screen that says "incorrect disc" Any help?

I'm getting frustrated

If you could tell us exactly what steps you're using to create your DVD, we can tell you if you've really done it correctly. One way is to add your movie files into a VideoWave production so you can add transitions, titles, etc. and then put that saved production into a MyDVD production, where you then add menus and chapters to your DVD before writing that to either an image file (to later burn to DVD) or to a DVD. (The two-step image file -> DVD is recommended.)

 

But, you may have done something else, such as writing a bunch of .MPG or .AVI files directly to a DVD as a Data DVD, which most players won't recognize.

 

Let us know just what you've done so we can try to help you.

The possible reasons it doesn't play in your stand alone player are numerous.

 

If you provide some details of how you made the DVD, someone here will probably be able to offer some helpful suggestions.

Don't get frustrated. Try doing one thing...slow down your burn speed. I have a burner that will burn pretty darned fast, and my DVD+R discs are different brands labeled at 16x speed, but when you go in to actually burn the disc, the software you're using will usually detect the type of disc and suggest the highest speed it can burn at. Change that setting to something a little bit slower. For 16x discs, I burn at 12x. If you burn too fast or at the maximum, it just messes up with read errors on DVD players.

Same problem as discussed!!!

 

With Creator 2009, captured several Hi8 tapes to AVI. The User Guide for Creator 2009 says to make "DVD-videos" for playing on TV dvd players (pages 154-160).

 

I am using the "video copy and convert" to make dvds from my avi files. The destination dvd "format" gives over 13 options, however none of these options are "dvd-video"! Reading all around the web, it seems dvd-video is MPEG2?? I have tried multiple MPEG4 and MPEG2 dvds. They burn fine, work on the computer, but won't play on the TV systems.

 

Other formats seem irrelevant for playing on regular dvd players. I have a westinghouse tv/dvd-combo. My other player is a standard brand dvd player hooked to another tv.

 

(Chose AVI to avoid losses, but requires huge memory...still think avi may be the best way to preserve my tapes?)

 

 

So, I can't get a dvd "created" by roxio to play on either of my dvd players. Errors, eg "unknown disc".

 

My new computer burns dvds fine at 22X. I slowed burn rate to as low as 12x (as Roxio Discussion Group posts mentioned this as a possible solution). However, MPEG dvds still won't play on tv for family to watch.

 

DVDs say 4.7G, 01Media, A+ professional grade, DVD-R, 16x.

 

 

Other DVD suggestion?

Capture format suggestion rather than AVI?

Conversion format suggestion which "TV dvd player will recognize?"

I also use Roxio "MyDVD-9", and some other Roxio burning products. I'm not familiar with the "Video Copy and Convert" program, but it sounds like it will copy DVD's and/or convert the file format only. Forgive me for asking, in case I'm not reading your post right... But, are you burning the MPEG's or the AVI's directly to the disk? The reason I ask, is that you need to put your AVI's (all video files together) into a program like Roxio's VideoWave and save the file there, then go to MYDVD to import 'that' file to burn it to disc. All video files must be "encoded" to be played on a TV's DVD player. I would also slow the burn speed down to 8x, as I've had to do that before too, and like I mentioned in my previous post, I have a fast burner too. Those fast burners are great for data, but when it comes to DVD's, the slower the better. The DVD-R disc is fine. Those are good for older players, but you may have to check the player's owner manual to be sure it accepts those type, especially if it's new. MPEG's, and WMV's are the "output" type file for creating a DVD for TV, but once the disc is encoded and burned, there will be two folders, one "ROXIOPLASMA" (for example) and the other one "VIDEO_TS", each containing all the project data files. Be sure your settings, -both when you create the file and before you burn it are set to Video / DVD playback, Good Quality MPEG-2, and NTSC (NOT PAL).

I realized that there is a tab on my version of Roxio that says, "for TV", but that is deceptive. That's if you want to run the disc in your computer to play (via a cable to the TV) on the TV! If there is a tab that says "Video File", use that instead. Basically, you'll be saving your AVI's as a video file before you go to burn it.
