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
The best way to play burned movies is to copy them onto a memory stick or external hard drive then copy them onto the ps3 i use this method and find the movies play in much higher quality than dvd-r or+r or whatever discs you use
Nero 6 and 7 does not provides us the facilitiy of burning the DVD in appropriate DVD Format. Instead it burns the DVD in the normal DATA Format, which is not supportable by our DVD Player. To play the DVD in our DVD Player we should burn the DVD in the appropriate DVD Burner which itself converts the extension of the movie and make it proper for a DVD Player to read it. It also adds some files to the DVD which is sometimes used by the dvd player in running the DVD.
The problem you are having is the DVD player. Not all DVD players will play a burned DVD. Some set top DVD players are know for being very picky about what type of DVD's they will play, and Phillips is very bad about this.
If you have the owners manual for the DVD player, look inside and see what type of disc's are playable. if it should play them DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R. DVD+RW should all be listed.
Right now about 80% of DVD players do not play burned DVD's
In time they all will play them, but for some unknownn reason, some are still made without this ability.
Also, not all DVD-R's are created equal.
The best quality of DVD's to buy for burning are Taiyo Yuden. But Sony, memorex, and Maxell are also pretty good.
One way to be certain about the quality of the burned DVD's is to take one to a friends house or anybody you know who has a set top DVD player and see if it plays in their DVD player.
That will at least tell you if the DVD's you are burning are at fault or not. But my guess is that you r Phillips is the culprit here.
I hope this was helpful to you, if so a good rating would really be appreciated.
I have been buring DVD's since they started selling them for the PC. compatibility has been the only problem I have had. My sony DVD player plays everything I throw at it.
