Burning DVD files that do not play

I customarily burn DVD (.iso) files on my IMAC and can then play them on the computer and on TV. When I burn the same files on my new MacBook, the DVD also plays fine on the computer but will not play on TV???
Please advise. Thanks. LH

Within the softare that you use for burning, before you actually choose to burn you should have two options, one option is to burn so your computer and most other dvd/computers can recognise it, or two burn so only your computer can recognise it. (It's a security thing.) Check this setting. When you insert a blank dvd into your drive and open the software, choose dvd then look at the screen for the options that it gives you.

My acard technology pro burns dvds but the target dvds end up all scratchy like quality the pixels move and everything


is resolutions pixel problem only on the dvd disks you burn?
you might have to save the dvd to a file first then burn it to a dvd
are you copyning from another dvd or from a saved file ??
you might be burning it as data
this might be a problem with the quality of the dvd disks you are using or might be the software you are using there are lots of free burning sofrware programs on the internet
this might be because you have not selected the option to burn an audio or data dvd or your burning software does not support dvd burning
there are plenty of free burning software programs on the internet

I can not record a ISO image in my GH22N550


Try using this software, Image Burn. It works for me every time. I gave up on all others. This program will burn ISO's to ISO's, it will burn ISO's to Boot Disks, it will make files into ISO's, it does it all.

Also, just to clear up the term, when you burn a ISO you are generally trying to make a bootable disk, you are not actually burning the ISO, but expanding and burning the files onto a CD or DVD that you will use to install something on another computer.

Acer dvd problem


When you burn dvd's to play on DVD players dont burn them as Data dvd they will not play. When you burn the DVD movie try to burn it using a DVD player compatible profile and this depends on the application software you are using to burn the DVD.

Do the DVD play on your computer from DVD or even from the file on hard drive.

If it does not play from the file on hard drive then the file is corrupted on downloading or you dont have a proper dvd palying software like PowerDVD

If it plays from the software but does not play from the DVD on your computer, then it means your DVD burner softaware corrupts file information on burning. Try using a different burning software.

If it plays DVD on your computer but not on the DVD player then your DVD burning profile you selecting is not compatible with your player its possibly burning Data DVD.
