Can't burn a DVD to play on "set top" DVD player

Question

Hi, I'm hoping someone here has had a similar experience to mine. I'm using Toast 10.0.4 on OSX 10.6.3. My optical drive is:

HL-DT-ST DVDRW GS21N. I've tried every conceivable combination of settings, and tried Verbatim, Imation, and Memorex DVD- media, and have never been able to produce a DVD that will play in a conventional player. They play fine on a computer. I am using a VIDEO_TS folder that burns successfully on my PC so I know the files are good. Each burn verifies, I need someone on a higher level than me to suggest what might be the problem.

Thanks.

I don't know if this will fix it but update to the latest !0.0.6. Roxio had a lot of difficulties with Snow Leopard and the 10.0.6a update seems to have fixed most if not all.

 

I presume you used the VIDEO_TS folders setting in the Video window to burn your DVD. You also could use the DVD-Rom (UDF) setting in the Data window. Click New Disc and give the disc a name and then drag in your VIDEO_TS folder. Click the burn button. I bet it works.

OK, I upgraded to Toast 10.0.6 and tried your method, still didn't work. The next thing I'm going to look into is whether or not it's just my DVD player that won't play them. Odd, though, I'm used to burning discs on my old PC that will play on anything… I guess technology improving with time is too much to expect.
