There are three DVD types: DVD-RW, DVD+RW and DVD RAM
Your computer must be able to read the DVD format or type that is inserted. This is not something where you can just download a program to change. It is in the hardware for your computer. Your computer tried to read the title track of the DVD that you thought was "DVD-RW" and it could not read it but based on the signature that it read thought that it was in "DVD RAM" format.

Solution: This computer will not read that DVD. Either get the information on a compatible formated DVD or find another machine that has DVD RAM capability to read it.

It's not reading cd, or DVD


Check for scratches on the disk surface - these can inhibit the player from reading a disk correctly.

Some players will read olny certain type(s) of disks. This is an issue mostly for disks created on a computer, not those that are prerecorded and available for purchase or rental that contain movies and music.

As stated above, dIsks created on a home computer may not always be readable on a home player. Re-writeable and recordable types that are not listed as being compatible will not work. Check your manual to see which types are acceptable and not. DVD types are: DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW and DVD-RAM CD Types are CD-R, CD+R and CR-RW. Older home CD and DVD players generally work with "-R" types and the newer players with both "-R" & "+R" types. "-RW" and "-RAM" types are the least likely to be readable in home players.

Additionally, most players require that disks created on a home computer be "finalized". This is an extra step that isn't required by most CD / DVD drives in computers. Just because it works in your computer doesn't mean it will work in your home player. If you're using compatible media and still not able to read disks, check your CD / DVD recording software options to enable finalization.

Good luck!

Why does the DVD player say " incorrect disc" inserted?


Try MEMOREX DVD+R or DVD+RW, I have had good luck with them. They are 4.7 GB also. It will also depend on the age of your dvd player too. My KOSS dvd player was 5 years old and would not read the disc from my computer.

    Reads all but DVD-Help PLEASE


    When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks? If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD. If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD. Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.

    NEC DVD-RW 16x DL


    If you switched to a different brand of DVD's try using the brand you used before. DVD burners are tested with certain brands of DVD's and sometimes the brands that aren't on that list don't work.
