Question about Toshiba D-R5 DVD Recorder
I have a pc and it won't even recognize that the dvd is in their when i put it in. Then i have a powermac G4, and it still doesn't read it. I took it in to the Apple store, they tried it there and still could not read it. But at home on my toshiba d-r5 and my sony, it reads fine. WHAT DO I DO????
This is not a Mac/PC problem but because the DVD-Recorder burned a protected disc to prevent copying of TV programs. On most cases, the DVD can be played on a normal DVD player but cannot even be read by MAC and some PCs.
The 4GB+ DVD might even be interpreted as 8GB+ DVD to prevent copying of content. It is not easy to break this copy protection method but on a PC, it can be done. Although how to do it is a trial and error experience.
If you are able to read the disc, you might notice that there is an additional folder besides the usual "Audio_TS and Video_TS". It is a sure tell sign that the DVD is recorded from a DVD-recorder and is copy protected somehow.
