The LG BD390 should read DVD+/-r if they are finalized. he same is true of DVD-rw discs. However, a lot depends on the burner and software you use for the burn. This unit will only support video mode, VR mode and AVHCD formats. It will also support DVD+R DL discs.
The disc is probably an incompatible format for this model player. Even if the disc is finalised in your PC, or in a DVD recorder, this player may still be unable to read it. Some DVD recorder/players do not recognise DVD+R (or +R DL) media, while others won't recognise +/-RW discs (except CD-RW); this is a model limitation - not a fault with either your player, the PC burning software or the discs themselves.
Nothing can be done to fix this except purchasing a model which accepts multimedia (+R/DVD-RAM etc). The question is, does your player play ANY normal DVDs? I am guessing your player will accept DVD-R DL discs just fine since this is standard as well as proper shop-bought movies.
The exact model of DVD player matters. Not all models can play a Computer burned disc. There are several types of DVD A factory type DVD in DVD format A burned movie in MPEG format a burned disc in DivX format. Etc. Try burning the disc with a DVD Creator program, not just 'Burn to DVD'. It's not the same thing.
You probably have burnt the dvd disc using a video format that is not compatible with your player.
A lot of DVD players will not play .AVI or DIVx files that are commonly downloaded.
Your DVD player manual should list the formats it will play.
Convert downloaded movies to a compatible format before burning to disc.
There are several conversion programmes available via the web - at a cost of approx $50.00.
AVS4U works ok.
HI, Check the manuel some DVD Players do not support
DVD RW or -R +R formats.When Ifirst put my burned movie in I got the
message that the player cant play that format Just ignore that and
advance the Video to where the movie is starting then all my burned
movies played fine. My Pioneer BD 51 FD does support DVD RW +R -R
formats so be sure that you can play burned DVD RW +R -R on your Sony
player. I was in Wal Mart the other day and they had some DVD players
on sale but on the box it said that they do not play DVD RW +R or -R
Burned DVD's so be careful if you do buy another one I went to best buy
and found mine. Check first it will save a lot of hassle later. This
software works great but it may not play in your DVD Sony Player there
is a list here of compatible DVD Players
Don't know if I can help or not, but this what I do.
I've downloaded the DIVx player and converter software (free) to my computer. I can download mpeg, avi movies, etc, and convert them to DIVx format if I need to. The DIVx player has a 'burn' feature that is fast and burns them in a DIVx format. My old DVD Recorder will not play DIVx format but my 'cheap' Phillips will. I just keep it hooked up to my old DVD recorder through the front RCA input jacks. When I want to play a DIVx movie and watch it on the TV, I use the cheap Phillips player. I have to change the input on my old DVD Recorder to 'Front Input. I usually record the movie on a DVD R in my DVD Recorder while I'm watching it if I want to keep a copy to play later on the DVD Recorder. Most of the time, I burn the movies to RW DVD and erase them later.
I don't remember the web site for the DIVx players and converters, but you should be able to find it with a search.
Are you using DVD+R or DVD-R to burn the movies to? DVD+R is what you want to burn movies to for best quality and DVD-Rs are for like pictures and documents etc (even though you can also burn those to a DVD+R). Secondly, most movies that burn are played back in MP3 format, make sure your dvd playing is capable of playing MP3s.
What exactally do you mean by you bought 2 different types of blank videos?
Shouldn't matter what the OS (operating system) is. What you need to do is to make sure you convert the movie to proper format which would allow you to view on DVD player after burning. Usually you need a seperate software. Your DVD player should say what formats are compatible. Usually listed on unit or in manual. Avi is a great format but when you burned it to DVD your computer probably created a Data Disk. Which would make it unreadable by DVD player. Check to make sure you are able to convert to format that's readable by your player.Good Luck
