Cant play recorded DVDs on other machines

All players can play the format 'DVD-ROM', so most burners format the blank disk to that. Maybe it somehow got set to some other format?

How to format disk

When you recorded the Disk - you should see an option in the writer softer to finalise the disk - often disk are left open to add more information - called multi-session
have a look at the options page for the burner software you have , see if you have finalise or to unselect multi-session.
If you comment back on what software you are using to burn the Disks - I can see if i can find the option

Samsung dvd-r130

I had the same problem and after reading and trying allot of disks I found the following to work.

Used Maxell - RW disk. Did a complete format on my computer (takes a while). Burned a DVD using Vista DVD burner with only a Jpg as per one of the other posts. Once the disk plays. Stop and goto disk management and format using DVD-V (VR did not work).

I know its not pretty but at least its better than throwing it in the garbage bin.

Samsung dvd recorder model vr-325

Ok I have been here before. The problem is your DVD burner in your DVD player unit may not be burning the disk in a format recognized by the Computer, or the laser may not have burned the disk to the set standard, and while it can play on that DVD player when you move it to a nother player it will not play. Well what we can do is Test the reverse first. Burn a DVD on your computer and try to play it on your DVD player and on the other TV. Then what I want you to do is to clean the lens of the player and try to burn a disk and play it on your computer. Let me know how this truns out.
