Question about Pioneer (DVR-K16) DVD RW Dual Layer Burner
I am using windows movie maker with OS vista to edit my home video (cousin wedding video) and it is about 2.5 hrs long and burn't to DVD+R DL 8.5GB which it did burn successfully. But when I tried to play the disc from NEC dvd player it did not regonise the disc.
WHY is this so. In the past I have successfully burn other video to disc but using DVD-R 4.7GB and plays on my dvd player not problem.
Am I using the wrong disc? Should I have formated the disc first?
Thank you for the tip and I'll try this tonight. Before I left home this morning I am currently re-burning it to DVD-R 8.5GB (it took 5 hrs to burn).
I will try DVD shrink method.

You don't need to format the disc, as it does this during the burn process. What you may find is that your NEC dvd player does not play DVD+R. If you can, re-burn the video on a DVD-R 8.5GB.
You can also compress the video to fit on 4.7GB dvd. Download a program called DVD Shrink 3.2. Put the disc you burnt in the drive, and run DVD Shrink. This will analize the film, and all you need to do is click on Re-Author and lower the compression. It even has a line to show how big the video will be on the disc. On a 4.7GB dvd, you don't want this any higher than 4,430MB.
Hope those work

Tips for a great answer:
• 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.
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.
