Burned Dvds Hi, I have burned several Dvd's but none of them will play in the Oritron DVD3116, or in the PS3, or in a nouther dvd player that is dvd/vcr combo. from Toshiba. I have converted the files before burning them. from .avi to mpeg2 and I have also tried leaving the files as .avi what can I do, or do any of these play burned dvds?

    There are many chipset out there that go into playewrs but most recent ones can cope with burned disks.
    I run slide shows and movies on burned CD's and DVD's
    Strange though it seems it is the cheaper players that can cope with the most formats.

Problem with Mintek MDP-1810 Portable DVD Player that will play movie DVDs but not computer burned video DVD

The problem I think is with the burner on your pc. Try re burning on another program like Nero and pay attention to the options. It will ask you if you wish to play disc in all types of players.

Dvd player dont play burned dvds

This is the problem of DVD formatting. Check if your DVDs are burned in the format which you DVD player can support. If not then you have to go to options in your PC and select the appropriate format which is supported by your DVD player and burn DVDs accordingly.

When I record to dvd I can't plan on any other DVD player - can play on the toshiba dvr but nothing else?

Have you closed the recording? If the recording is not closed out, you will have trouble playing the DVD in other players.

It could also be that your DVD player you are trying to play on is too old or not designed to use burned DVDs. I also have trouble playing some burned DVD's in older DVD players, it has to do with how the recording is done, and there is nothing you can do about it. For example, I have a Sony 5 disc changer that came with a surround sound set up... nice DVD player, but will NOT handle DVDs burned on stand alone DVD burners or burned from a PC. It reads the DVD, and displays on the front of the player that it is not a DVD, and shows nothing on the TV.

Dvd wont play

I wonder if you are trying to play burned dvds, if so that could be a major issue alot of players won't play burned disks, others will only play certain ones. another thing I have had problems with, though i don't know a fix. My samsung sometimes has a similar issue where it flat out will not play certain company dvds.
