Are you trying to burn DVD's?, if that is the case you will need DVD-R or DVD+R. If you have already tried DVD+R, your burner may prefer DVD-R. If you are using a desktop computer, the front of the burner drawer should have a few logos on it, see if you can read what discs the drive has listed, or refer to your owner's manual for that same information.

SOURCE: roxio dvd disk type doesn't match project type

Check the following parameters

- Type of disk--> it must be a DVD RW disk (Read and write), if the media is only DVD R, you can't burn it
- Your DVD driver--> Check if it accepts DVD RW(-) or DVD RW(+) or both. With this information, check if the media matches the driver capability
- Roxio settings--> In the Main Menu select--> Disc--> Disk information--> confirm that the right driver is selected (drive D or E or the letter your computer uses for the DVD driver)

SOURCE: I have burn a DVD video using Cyberlink DVD Suite

There are many DVD formats DVD- DVD+ DVD-ROM heck even blueray is a different DVD format.,Now see if you can find any paper work for your DVD stand alone and see what is compatible with it.
The only other thought it may be, in your burning program you can select to have the DVD play only on the computer you make it on...see if that is checked
and if it is make so DVDs can play in all players.
So to recap: a compatibility issue or a proprietary setting for your computer only.
hope this helps, please leave rating, thank you

Portable dvd player when you put disc in machine it comes up with wrong disc display on screen is it the settings


It would more likely be the types of discs used. They are either of a region code not compatible with the player, contain foreign/unknown data, or they are unsupported formats. For example, if the player supports DVD-R playback, and you put a DVD-RW in, the player will generate 'wrong disc' message if the player cannot recognise the disc or the contents on it.

The disc formats/types that can be played should be outlined either on the unit itself or in the instruction manual (if you still have it). If the player shows that message even with genuine shop-bought DVDs then there is a defect within the unit, workshop attention may be required to fix it, but it could be costly.

'WRONG DISC' usually means the disc inserted is of a different region code to the player, or the wrong format (DVD-RW instead of DVD-R as exampled above). Try using different discs before going any further.

Tip

When you try to play a DVD game on Xbox 360 it tries to play as a movie?


c on your Xbox 360 console, you may receive an error message. This article presents step-by-step guidance to help you determine whether your disc is playable.
SYMPTOMS When you try to play a disc, you may receive the following error message: Can’t read this DVD.
CAUSE The DVD or game disc may be dirty or damaged. Because the console cannot read the disc well, it may even mistake a game disc for a DVD and report this error. If this problem occurs with multiple discs, even clean and undamaged discs, there may be a problem with your Xbox 360 console.
Note If you receive a different error message, such as one of the following messages, the problem is a different problem:
Error message 1 Can't play DVD. Wrong region code. Error message 2 Can’t play DVD. Family settings restrict playback of this DVD. If you receive one of these error messages, see the corresponding Knowledge Base article: 907620 While attempting to play a standard DVD movie using your Xbox 360 console, you receive the error message: "Can't play DVD. Wrong region code" 908645 While attempting to play a DVD movie using your Xbox 360 console, you receive the error message: "Can’t play DVD. Family settings restrict playback of this DVD"
THINGS TO TRY Here are some things that you can do to try to fix the problem or to determine what caused it.
Determine whether the disc is dirty or damaged Discs that are smudged, scratched, or otherwise damaged cannot be read by the Xbox 360 console. You will want to examine the disc to see whether it has smudges, scratches, or other damage. To do this, follow these steps: 1. Examine the disc for dirt or damage: a. Pick up the disc by its edges. Do not touch the top or bottom surface. b. Examine the shiny side of the disc to make sure that the disc is clean and has no damage.
NoteScratches that follow the curve of the disc are very damaging and prevent a disc from being read. If your disc has even one of these kinds of scratches, the disc is damaged, and you will no longer be able to play it. If this is the case, see step 4. 2. If the disc is dirty, clean the disc by hand: • Use a soft, clean, dry, chemical-free cloth to clean the disc. • Lightly wipe from the center of the disc outward. 3. After you clean the disc, try to load it in the Xbox 360 console. If the disc still will not load or you receive the same error message, the disc is damaged, and you will no longer be able to play it. If this is the case, see step 4. 4. If the disc is damaged, do one of the following: • Because DVD discs are not game discs and the disc was damaged because of misuse of some type, such as not storing the disc in its case, the only thing that you can do is buy a new one. • If you feel that the disc was damaged by the Xbox 360 console in some way, please contact Xbox Customer Support. To do this, please visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://www.xbox.com/support/contact

My Samsung DVD Recorder rejects my blank DVD disc after having used it 2 years without any problem. What is causing this?


Hi, I think I have the answer. Try putting in a different type of disc, start with going to a simpler format of disc-if yoou were using dvd r/w +- for example then go to plain dvd r. If you were using dvd r's-then try putting in a data disc ( cd-r ) and try recording a song. I you can record in a simpler format I'd have to say that your samsung's probably reached the end of it's life cycle and is just plain getting weak. I'm sorry I didn't have better news. You may try a " LENS CLEANING " dvd also-as there have been cases of actual dirt being a culprit. I hope this was helpful, please comment though, Thanks and good luck , Prodzilla

Pinnacle DVD's won't play in DVD players


The region code of your stand alone player is different from the region code on the disk. To resolve this Pinnacle should have an info tool that will allow you to check the region code. If not Nero has this tool available with thier software. You should be able to download it @www.download.com. Also most newer DVD players only read specific data types. For instance, you cant use DVD-RW in a player that only reads DVD-R. So make sure you are using disks that are compatible with your DVD player.

I'm having problems formatting discs for Panasonic EZ47 DVD recorder. Keep getting "formatting unsuccessful" message.


Now here are the types of DVDs that you can record to DVD-RAM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL
Now the only types that you can format are DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, DVD+RW
So first make sure you are not trying to format the wrong type of DVD. If you are using the correct type then you might want to try a different brand. Sometimes certain brands of DVDs have problems with certain players. You can also try updating your player's firmware and see if that corrects the problem also.

Hi there.
Your probably doing nothing wrong, I use different programs to encode DVD's and have noticed that some take longer than others to complete, but what i did notice was the encoding that took longer ended up being the best quality.

DVD doesn't play any disk anymore. Displays a message: this can't of disc can't be played ... I tried several different types of disks.


Same here! It would say something along the lines of "this type of disc cannot be played. please insert a different disc." it's the appropriate dvd region, i've tried all types of dvds, and it still won't work. the vhs and cd still works, it's just the dvd player that won't.
