Hello, this is more than likely the media you're using. The best to use for this are verbatim-r or taiyo yuden-r dvds. Also, could be your burner. Imgburner is the most popular one used which is free

A DVD RW that I recorded and have previously watched now will not play in any DVD player, including the one I recorded it on.


You may have encountered a problem that will eventually hit most users who write their own DVD's. The media used to create your DVD's is not immune from damage or aging, and will eventually fail.

You might try to play it on a computer from one of your familly members or friends. Different drives are better at potentially flawed discs. If one of them plays okay, it may be possible to copy your original disc on that computer to make a new copy.

Obviously, how you treat the DVD's you create plays a big part in how long they will last. If you handle them only by the edges, never lay them down on other surfaces where they might get scratched or attract dust, and always put them back in their sleeves or cases, that will help.

The quality of the blank DVD media is also a big factor in how long the media will last. You can search on the web for quality comparisons of DVD blank media to help you make a purchase decision. No media is perfect, and there are error-correcting routines that are used by your computer software to account for the minor surface imperfections that will be present on any blank DVD disc. But there are definitely DVD media makers who produce higher quality blank media than other low-cost makers. This is truly a case of "you get what you pay for".

One other note: While your blank media may say it is rated for "16X" (meaning it can be created using a disc rotation speed that is 16 times the normal rotation speed), I personally never burn my DVD's at the rated speed. Frankly, I don't trust that having the laser beam speed across the disc at 16 times the normal rate is a reliable way to create a long-lasting disc. So I always access the recording options for my disc burning software and set the burn speed to a lower value, like 4X, so ensure the laser has enough time to create a longer lasting burn image on the disc. This applies to CD blanks as well, where some of the drives support 52X speeds. While I don't have any research to back up my disc burning recommendations, I just feel better not pushing my equipment and my disc media blanks to their upper limits.

DVD wont burn with dvd maker gets to 99% then stops


HI THERE,
When was the last time it was working fine?

• Do you have any third party CDDVD burning software?
• Are you able to burn DVD's using windows explorer?


First I would suggest that you try burning using another DVD and check if it works.

Method 1

Try one or more of the following:
Verify that the DVD burner is connected properly to your computer and powered on, and that any necessary software drivers for the DVD burner are installed. You can check your hardware settings in the Device Manager by doing the following:

1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Click Hardware and Sound.
3. Click Device Manager.
• Make sure that the videos you're trying to burn are not corrupted. To see whether the videos you want to burn is corrupted, try playing or viewing them using Windows Media Player. If the files don't play using the Player, Windows DVD Maker cannot burn them.

• Choose a slower burning speed for your DVD burner by doing the following:
1. Return to the Add pictures and video to the DVD page, and then click Options.
2. In the DVD burner speed box, select Medium or Slow.

I'm attempting to burn a video i created on windows movie maker to a DVD+R 4.7 GB/Go, 1-16x disc. I've attempted burning it straight from the option in windows movie maker, and now I just attempted to use...


If the DVD is unreadable by several devices then the DVD disk was burned wrong and is nothing more than you can do.
Assure that you have a region set on your DVD players and a certified DVD playback software on PC. Windows Media Player 10 should be enough if the disk is still unreadable will remain unreadable and ony speciall software with raw access will read it but this is not a solution for you.
I use Nero 7 for burning CDs and DVDs and never had a problem. Maybe when you burned the DVD you set a wrong regional code or you choosed a wrong DVD format that is unknown to your DVD players.

DVD deterioration


I would blame it on the DVD player. They are fickle when it comes to playing burned discs. Try playing the disc in your computer. If does the same thing there, the disc is garbage. You can also try burning at a slower speed, sometimes this helps. I would also try to avoid using DL (dual-layer) discs.

Poor video quality with windows movie maker


Windows movie maker is just a generic xp add on that I am sure was an after thought and never will give you good quality movies it does alright and should give acceptable results if you have a good graphics card and vga card but try useing nero to burn movies the burning speeds can be slowed right down to give exellent quality and if you just want a reasonable quality dvd you can turn the burn speed up to burn faster but you always sacrafice quality for speed on any dvd burning program unless you go get a profestional one and upgrade to much higher quality graphics and vga cards you also need a good deal of ram to
