Dvds Made With "roxio 6" Won't Play - Split From Unrelated Topic


 Share

Recommended Posts

I have roxio 6 and dvds will burn but after finaliging they will not play on dvd players. They will play on my pc which created them.

I have a ATAPI DVD A DH20A-4P running Roxio 6

Any thoughts?

 

I am not sure of the process you used to create your DVD but video DVD do not need "manual" finalizing, that is done automatically by the video burning program.

The fact that you can play the DVD on your computer and not in a DVD player seems to indicate that you did not create a video DVD but just a data DVD which of course does not play on DVD players.

 

Perhaps if you were to describe your process step-by-step we can see were might have gone wrong.

 

BTW, when you look at the DVD, does it contain a VIDEO_TS folder containing anumber of ifo, bup and vob files?

Thanks for the reply.

I copied 8mm tapes to a dvd recorder then inserted that dvd in my pc and copied it to my desk top.

I then drug that icon to my roxio drag to disk icon with a blank disk in my drive. It recorded and I followed the info to eject slowly to finalize so it would be playable on all dvd players.

It does contain a VIDEO_TS folder containing a number of ifo, bup and vob files?

I am using sony DVD-R disks. I'm getting unRecognizable media , or can not read messages.

Hi,

 

Drag-to-Disc formats a disc in a special way for 'packet-writing'. Once the disc has been formatted like that, it can only be read in computers and can't be read in DVD players.

The 'eject and finalize' option in Drag-to-Disc writes a Table of Contents [TOC] so the disc can be read in another computer, but not a DVD player.

 

To make a DVD which will play in a DVD player, you need to feed your VIDEO_TS folder and its contents to DVD Builder 6. Avoid Drag-to-Disc, or even turn it off while you make this DVD.

I found DVD builder in my Roxio menu but it doesn't say builder 6.

I will go thru the instructions and try it out.

Just curious. When I finalized all of my copy's using drag to disk the software popped up when ejecting it will take 3 to 5 min. but it will be readable in most DVD players. Other wise eject now and it will be faster but the disk will only be readable in a computer running Roxio drag to disk.

I always chose the longer method.

Hi Robert,

That's correct. It is just identified as DVD Builder to the user. Sorry for making things more complicated.

I think these are the screens you will be seeing. [they're the ones I see :) ]

Please note that they say "readable on any CD or DVD drive" rather than "DVD Players". They are talking about computer CD or DVD drives which are much more versatile than the relatively dumb DVD players, Also at the time that Easy CD & DVD Creator 6 was current, home-burned DVDs were being used more for data storage than video-DVDs so you needed 'readable' discs more than 'playable' ones.

 

I hope you have success with DVD Builder, which is designed to build playable, standard DVD-video discs.

 

Regards,

Brendon
