Re: recorded a DVD on computer but will not play on DVD...

Dvd players play only certain kinds of discs and formats. Older ones played -R's, most newer ones play everything. You have to look in manual, or on box before you buy player. If it won't play -R,+R, -RW,and +RW's I pass it by. Find out if your player is limited to certain discs. Some will play VCD and some will not. Some will play DIVX and some will not etc. Stick to the discs and formats your particular player is compatible with.

Why doesn't my recorded dvd-r movies play on my magnavox dvd player

Does your DVD player support that version of DVD disk? Not all players will handle DVD-R. Check the manual for compatibility.
Try recording to DVD+R then see if your player will play it.
Also, in what format (.avi, .flv, .mov, etc.) was the item recorded and is your player able to handle that format? Again, check the manual for compatibility.

I 'Finalized' the DVD but cannot play on another player

Does the machine record on to + or - DVDR?
If it does both try each type. Also try high quality discs, some of the cheaper types won't work. Try it on different speeds too.

Unit will play pre-recorded dvd's but when trying to record on any blank dvd disc it say's read then preparing and then invaid disc ?

Older DVD players (as well as some lower end products) will not play computer recorded disks. Another option may be which DVD are you recording on. DVD+R or DVD-R. Some players will only play one version. (usually -R I believe). Or could be a problem with youtr authoring program. Try a different program and/or type of DVD Recordable disk.

Lg 766 wont play a pre recorded dvd every thing else is fine

Not all DVD players will play a pre-recorded DVD that was made on a computer. These types are designed to play only what is called pressed DVD's.

When a CD or a DVD is recorded on a computer it is not really the same as when the media has been press recorded.

Most all of the new model DVD and CD players will play computer recorded media. When buying a player, it is important to make sure that the specs are what you need.

I used my pd-dvr100 to record a copy of a home made dvd. I do not know the format of the source disc. The process went well. The PD-DVD100 WILL PLAY THE DISC. However, the disc will not play on the player...

Have you tried to make sure the disc is finalized. Second check the manufacture website to make sure that the dvd player you are trying to play it in is compatible with the disc type that you recored on. Veryfy this by looking at the disc type on the dvd commonly refered to as +R or -R

I have recorded all my vhs tapes to dvds and they have played before and now they wont play. i have checked 4 dvds and they wont read in my tv, or 2 of my computers. what could of happened?

It can be several things. What type of DVD's do you have and how old are your players. Most older DVD players won't play the DVD+R format. When you said they played before was that in the recorder you used to make them? If so then most likely you failed to fina'ize them in the DVD recorder you used to make them. If you don't do that, they will ONLY play in the DVD recorder you used to copy them. If you did finalize them, it may be that, as said before, cheap discs dont work in any machines and DVD+R wont work in older players.

What type of dvd do you need to use to record?

If you click on the "VRDVD5000 DVD Recorder...Combo" link at the top of the page and scroll down towards the bottom of the page that brings up, you'll find an outline spec for the machine. Just looking at that, it would appear you ought to be trying "dvd-r" - (The difference between plus and minus is significant - it's a shame nobody thought to make the names more distinctive). Suggest you buy a single dvd-r, see how you get on, and only invest in a bigger pack once you know it's going to work. A.
