DVD BURNING I have downloaded a movie that runs for 2hrs 38mins. I burnt it on a double layer blank dvd 8.5gb but it won't play on my dvd player. Other movies (under 2hrs long) I have burnt on a 4.7gb dvd work ok. Is there anyway I can fit a 2hr38min movie onto a 4.7gb dvd?

Yes there is, there is plenty of software that will actually make any size move fit on a regular 4.7gb dvd, my definate favorite is CloneDvd2, also nero will, hope this helps and anything else i can help you with i am happy to help, also the most likely reason your dvd wont play the dual layer disc is that it doesn't support dual layer.

DVD format is VOB. It contains two folders Video_TS and Audio_TS, you have to convert your video to DVD compatible video and finalize the DVD, otherwise regular DVD player can not read and play it.
If you want to know how to burn video to DVD to play on DVD player, I think this step by step guide would help you, it will show you the detailed steps on converting video to DVD format, burning video to DVD, it's easy to understand and works pretty well for me.

I downloaded a movie on my computer. I burnt the disc and when I put it in the dvd player it says cannot play disc. I have a sony DVD Player. Any thoughts?


The exact model of DVD player matters. Not all models can play a Computer burned disc.
There are several types of DVD
A factory type DVD in DVD format
A burned movie in MPEG format
a burned disc in DivX format.
Etc.
Try burning the disc with a DVD Creator program, not just 'Burn to DVD'. It's not the same thing.

I download free movies to hard drive, than I burn them, and my dvd player says no playback available or a big red x shows on tv screen, what am I doing wrong/


You probably have burnt the dvd disc using a video format that is not compatible with your player.
A lot of DVD players will not play .AVI or DIVx files that are commonly downloaded.
Your DVD player manual should list the formats it will play.
Convert downloaded movies to a compatible format before burning to disc.
There are several conversion programmes available via the web - at a cost of approx $50.00.
AVS4U works ok.

CD disc is playing ok. DVD discs not playing comes up on screen saying "wrong disc" when loaded.


double check if it really is a dvd and not a vcd, the latest dvd players only play real dvd's so not the ones you make at home by downloading movies and burning them on empty cd's

WHEN I BURN A MOVIE IT WON'T SHOW UP ON DVD DISC


Sounds like it may have burned the movie file as a data DVD.

In other words, the file gets burned to the DVD just like a Word doc or spreadsheet would, rather than encoded as a movie.

You need to check what format you downloaded it in - it may need conversion before burning as a movie DVD.

You can run a quick web search for *** (your current file format - mpg, divx, etc.) to DVD and find a free utility for conversion.

Then your burning software should be able to burn it as a movie DVD, ready for your player.

I burnt a video to a DVD+R DL but not playing on my DVD player?


You don't need to format the disc, as it does this during the burn process. What you may find is that your NEC dvd player does not play DVD+R. If you can, re-burn the video on a DVD-R 8.5GB.

You can also compress the video to fit on 4.7GB dvd. Download a program called DVD Shrink 3.2. Put the disc you burnt in the drive, and run DVD Shrink. This will analize the film, and all you need to do is click on Re-Author and lower the compression. It even has a line to show how big the video will be on the disc. On a 4.7GB dvd, you don't want this any higher than 4,430MB.

Hope those work

Dvd+r double layer burning


Two things come to mind that could help you fix this issue.

1. Update the firmware. The newest version is "SB06" and can be downloaded form Samsung's Site. Be very careful when updating firmware, make sure you follow the instructions closely, 1 mistake can destroy the drive forever.

2. The other issue is Disc quality. Buy good brand name discs I like Memorex myself.

Hope that fixes Ya...
