Question about Sony (DRU720A) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

Half-way burn? We have two Sony DVD RW 720A(s). We have had absolutely no problem burning movies for the past 2 years. As of late, we have had multiple problems burning movies. I can't even recall the last time we were successfully able to burn a movie. The CD burner works perfectly fine, but when you attempt to burn a movie, it will say "copy completed" - we use 1 Click Copy - but if you try to watch the movie, toward the end of the disc, it will start getting choppy and freeze. You can actually see a spot on the bottom of the disc where something went wrong. Sometimes, it will say "copy completed" and the disc won't play at all. And at other times, the disc will act like it burned okay, but there will be less than half of an inch of content on the bottom of the disc, so it definitely isn't right. Our PC is up to date on everything. We have Windows XP. Everything else is working great... it's just the DVD burning part of it... We're really confused.... Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!! -Jess & John

Mine is Sony DVD player..I insert a disc and it says "CAN NOT PLAY THE DISC" and then the player shuts off. The other DVD works fine.


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

your disc is scratched or a pirated one

Toshiba sd-r2002


I'm very late to your question, but the problem is that this drive doesn't burn DVDs (i.e., it was not designed to do that). It's a CD-RW, DVD-ROM (read only).

Why my [sony cd rw dvd rom] will not detect a blank dvd disk


If you have the sony CD RW DVD ROM then you can't burn the data in a blank DVD.

Because your Configuration is :
Read : CD / DVD
Write : CD

This means you have a combo drive. But to burn a DVD you should have DVD RW.
