It could be that the two home dvd players you tried would not play the format of your burned discs. Not all units will play both +R's and -R's. The other problem could be that your burner is out of alignment enough that only your burner will play the disc's you create on that unit. If you have a warranty on the burner it would be worth either getting it tested or exchanged.

DVD format is VOB. It contains two folders Video_TS and Audio_TS, you have to convert your video to DVD compatible video and finalize the DVD, otherwise regular DVD player can not read and play it.
If you want to know how to burn video to DVD to play on DVD player, I think this step by step guide would help you, it will show you the detailed steps on converting video to DVD format, burning video to DVD, it's easy to understand and works pretty well for me.

What disks to buy? dvdr dvdrw dvd+ dvd-????


DVD stands for Digital Versatile/Video Disc, DVDR stands for DVD Recordable and DVDRW for DVD ReWriteable. If you're familiar with regular audio/music CDs or regular DVD-Video discs, then you will know what a recordable DVD looks like. A recordable DVD stores up to 2 hours of very good quality DVD-Video, including several audio tracks in formats like stereo, Dolby Digital or DTS and also advanced menu systems, subtitles and still pictures that can be played by many standalone DVD Players and most computer DVD-ROMs. If you choose to lower the video quality it is possible to store several hours video on a recordable DVD using low bitrates and low resolution with video quality more like VHS, SVHS, SVCD, CVD or VCD. It is also possible to have up to 4.37* GB ordinary data or mix DVD-Video and data on a recordable DVD that can be played by most computer DVD-ROMs.

There are three competing DVD Recording standards, DVD-R/DVD-RW and DVD+R/DVD+RW have pretty similiar features and are compatible with many standalone DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs while DVD-RAM has less DVD Player and DVD-ROM compatibility but better recording features.

DVD-R and DVD-RW
DVD-R was the first DVD recording format released that was compatible with standalone DVD Players.
DVD-R is a non-rewriteable format and it is compatible with about 93% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD-RW is a rewriteable format and it is compatible with about 80% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD-R and DVD-RW supports single side 4.37 computer GB* DVDs(called DVD-5) and double sided 8.75 computer GB* DVDs(called DVD-10).
These formats are supported by DVDForum.

DVD+R and DVD+RW
DVD+R is a non-rewritable format and it is compatible with about 89% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD+RW is a rewritable format and is compatible with about 79% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD+R and DVD+RW supports single side 4.37 computer GB* DVDs(called DVD-5) and double side 8.75 computer GB* DVDs(called DVD-10).
These formats are supported by the DVD+RW Alliance.

DVD+R DL
DVD+R DL or called DVD+R9 is a Dual Layer writeable DVD+R. The dual layered discs can hold 7.95 computer GB* (called DVD-9) and dual layered double sides 15.9* computer GB (called dvd-18).

DVD-R DL
DVD-R DL or called DVD-R9 is a Dual Layer writeable DVD-R. The dual layered discs can hold 7.95 computer GB* (called DVD-9) and dual layered double sides 15.9* computer GB (called dvd-18).

I got this info from http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20071016055835AApo5e6

If your dvdrom supports dvdrw I would suggest buying these disks as you can re-write over them if you need too.
Most recent dvdroms support all of the above.
I hope this helps

Hi, I bought Bose 3 2 1 SERIES 11 Home system. but i cannot play wedding dvds on my system. All hollywood movies plays ok. I tried Verbatim DVD R & DVD-R there is no picture but the sound is there....


I would say that as with many manufacturers, the Bose 3-2-1 is meant to play Dual Layer DVDs. Since they hold data on 2 separate layers of the disc, these hold twice the amount of data than the Dvd+r or -r that you're using. When the Bose system tries to read the 2 layers and only finds one it, will not recognize the dvd. If you don't have a Dual-Layer burner and Dual Layer discs to burn to, you should upgrade your burning equipment. They're not that expensive these days. Cheers!

DVD BURNING


yes there is, there is plenty of software that will actually make any size move fit on a regular 4.7gb dvd, my definate favorite is CloneDvd2, also nero will, hope this helps and anything else i can help you with i am happy to help, also the most likely reason your dvd wont play the dual layer disc is that it doesn't support dual layer.

Dvd+r double layer burning


Two things come to mind that could help you fix this issue.

1. Update the firmware. The newest version is "SB06" and can be downloaded form Samsung's Site. Be very careful when updating firmware, make sure you follow the instructions closely, 1 mistake can destroy the drive forever.

2. The other issue is Disc quality. Buy good brand name discs I like Memorex myself.

Hope that fixes Ya...

DVD disk


check to see what format your computer burns on.[ex:dvd-r, dvd-rw,dvd-+r,dvd-+rw]different dvd players play certain dvd formats.the format for burning on your computer is probably different from the dvd players that aren't playing the disc.you also must finalize the burned disc.
good luck
