Some DVD players simply don’t support these types of discs. Others may play VCDs or SVCDs only if the discs were authored with certain settings, which the VCD/SVCD/DVD creation software may point out. The same goes for DVD playback software, although the developer may provide a patch or plug-in to enable this functionality.

First, consult the DVD player’s documentation for VCD/SVCD support. If your DVD player allows firmware updates, as some DVD recorders do, try updating it. Update your DVD playback software if applicable.

Also, you may find that different burning software, even from the same developer, may make discs compatible with your player. For an Apex DVD player, as an example, we were able to create working SVCDs with NeroVision Express, but not with Nero Express. Both titles come in the Nero 6 and 7 Ultra Edition suites.

Try burning the disc at a slower speed. Also, certain brands of CD-R may work better than others for this application. Roxio says that some players cannot read recordable media at all. Other sources say that CD-RWs might work better in some players.

Read up on your disc authoring software’s settings for VCDs and SVCDs in its help file, settings menus, or support section of the developer’s Web site. Try different settings related to compatibility. If all else fails, try the ones that will make “non-standard” discs.

That drive is only a CD reader and writer. It does not have DVD read or write capabilities. No amount of messing with it is going to make it play DVD discs. You will need to upgrade it to a drive that has DVD capabilities.

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

DVDs are produced in different formats for different DVD readers. Most modern DVD readers will read several formats such as the ones you have mentioned. However, you must make sure your DVD reader is compatible with the DVDs you want to use.

DVD+R and DVD-R are "write once" discs. DVD+RW and DVD-RW are rewriters, so you can write then erase, then write again.

Have a nice day :-)

Cannot read the min handy cam dvds


The disc needs to be finalized before you play it on other equipment. But to do this will render the disk unusable- If you intend to record over it in time, So it is best to copy the info across to the PC- burn that to a disk and finalize it then most other DVD players[Not all] will run it.
