Disk won't play in DVD player

Ok so everytime my friend makes me a dvd for me it won't play in my dvd player. It says it plays windows media and thats the format she's using. When I make dvds they play on the same dvd player that won't play hers. why is that? I know the disks work because they'll play on my computer.

Re: 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.

My LG DVD palyer will not play Windows Media 7

Hi,its obvious from your problem that both windows media 7 and mpeg video formats are not compatible with your dvd player,as you know,the windows media 7 is a very recent media player which is compatible with only very few dvd players so its not a defect with your dvd player,however you can go through your manual to see the list of video formats supported by your dvd player.
Thanks and take care

Hope it was the non-acetone type of polish remover - acetone will melt plastic !!

Invest in a laser eye cleaning disk - the kind with the tiny brushes.

OK what type of file format are the files in on the disk you are tying to play?

IDM-1731 does not like .AVIs.

Check your documentation as to what type of files your player can actually read and play.

Sorry I'm not more help.

Caanot play CD-R/DVD-R burnt from PC

First check that in your user manual that the dvd player is JPEG compatible. When you say you are having the problem on other DVD's do you mean when you use DVD+R and DVD-R disks on your own player or that yu have tried to play the same DVD disk on other brand DVD players without success? You dont mention which software you are using to save your JPEG's to Disk or whether you can in fact view them on your PC. After making sure that your Windows media player displays your pictures ok, Try using the NERO dvd burning Rom programme to load your JPEG's. I am assuming that you are not trying to record a DVD in a CD burning drive? hope this helps - hattonhall
