Sometimes it is the type of DVD. DVD-R is pretty standard. If you use a DVD+R sometimes you can run into problems with different players. Give DVD-R a shot.

Re: dvd will not play in dvd player but will play in...

I use clone DVD to rip commercial or other DVD's I own onto my hard drive, and from there I use nero to burn them on a new DVD. It works for me. Basically what i'm saying is that as long as you have the right setup of files, in the right DVD file format, your DVD player will be able to play the movie. It doesn't matter if its from the internet. You the files to be in VOB and IFO format, and the Disc needs to have all the files that cue the player on the order of play etc. I suggest you download CloveDVD or any other DVD ripping software, and note the file breakdown you get on the output, and make sure that what you download looks the same. Some DVD players offcourse can play VCDs and DIVx formats(many of the .avi are divx), you should know about yours, I dont think you can alter it. Good luck

SOURCE: Can't play a burned dvd disc on philips dvp 3120

You might have created a data cd, dvd player normally don't support data cd. If that is not the case then you the file format is not support by your dvd player.

You would have to search for a software to convert the file to the format supported by your dvd player. and write it on the disc again.

It will not play Verbatim DVD-R disc that I burnt on my computer.

If it can read any other disk, you should burn your disk again because burning process was incorrect. your computer can't recognize the disk. In this case, probably you can't do anything, no way to try to read a bad disk if computer can't even "see" it.
By the way, you should test to read the disk on some other computer.
If happens with ALL your disks, your optical player is defective.
Again test reading with other computer if record was made correctly
As for your device, you should check if worth to repair and decide if repair or replace it.

Problem with Mintek MDP-1810 Portable DVD Player that will play movie DVDs but not computer burned video DVD

The problem I think is with the burner on your pc. Try re burning on another program like Nero and pay attention to the options. It will ask you if you wish to play disc in all types of players.

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.
Try burning the disc with a DVD Creator program, not just 'Burn to DVD'. It's not the same thing.

How do I burn a dvd so that I can play it on other dvds than the one that I burned it on?

This doesn't make sense.
If you want to burn a DVD so it plays on all "DVD Players" you can buy a program called Nero for Windows or Toast for Mac.  You will also need a DVD RW disk reader since you can not burn a disk on a normal DVD drive or CD drive on you computer.

dvd players are finiky things they do not like burnt dvd's at all and some will just lock up computers on the other hand can handel those because burnt dvd's are in a coding format that computers can read much easier than a dvd player your best bet is to just buy the dvd non burned and see if that fixes it. good luck and If you ever need anymore help with electronics questions pleases dont hesitate to ask me at

Samsung dvd recorder model vr-325

Ok I have been here before. The problem is your DVD burner in your DVD player unit may not be burning the disk in a format recognized by the Computer, or the laser may not have burned the disk to the set standard, and while it can play on that DVD player when you move it to a nother player it will not play. Well what we can do is Test the reverse first. Burn a DVD on your computer and try to play it on your DVD player and on the other TV. Then what I want you to do is to clean the lens of the player and try to burn a disk and play it on your computer. Let me know how this truns out.

Disk won't play in DVD player

She does not have DVD Authoring Software on her computer. Yes, she can make DVD's but they are more like DATA DVD's. They play on a computer but not on a DVD Player.

I had to buy the $300.00 Nero DVD Burning software upgrade for my OEM installed basic DVD Burning Computer Program.

The DVD Authoring Software lets you burn video on the DVD and at the end it Finalizes it and that puts an index on the DVD that can be used in a DVD.
