Bush television & DVD error message 'unknown disk'
My home movies, burned to DVD-R disks, work perfectly on my old Bush (conventional type screen) TV. A new (wide screen type) Bush TV just won't allow them to play and a message 'unknown disk' appears (a commercial DVD does seem to play OK). Obviously the DVD player is OK because I use it regularly for my home movies and I used it for both trials. Is it some sort of code in the television set which must be 're-set' so it can play my movies?

Just plug in the drive and burn away! Mac's do not require specific drivers or add-on software to read or burn disks. If there is a specific type of disk or media (Movie, Documents etc.) you want to burn let me know those specifics and I can let you know how to do it.
If the DVD is unreadable by several devices then the DVD disk was burned wrong and is nothing more than you can do.
Assure that you have a region set on your DVD players and a certified DVD playback software on PC. Windows Media Player 10 should be enough if the disk is still unreadable will remain unreadable and ony speciall software with raw access will read it but this is not a solution for you. I use Nero 7 for burning CDs and DVDs and never had a problem. Maybe when you burned the DVD you set a wrong regional code or you choosed a wrong DVD format that is unknown to your DVD players.
Media Typethat the unit will play CD
DVD+RW only.. It will not record on the more expensive and compatible DVD-R, DVD-RW.
I recommend burning at a slower speed such as 2.4X, 4X or at most 8X.
I had similar issues resulting in many "coasters" for drinks burning at a faster rate even with my computer. Although some disks are designed to burn at a faster rate, software and components sometimes cannot keep up resulting in wasted money and time.
It may also be the media (manufacturer of disks). No matter which DVR or Burner you may have certain hardware schemes do not like certain media. It is a trial and error process. Just make sure the store has a return policy for the disks if they don't work. I have never had a problem returning disks to Staples that did not work.
I'm a novice, but had the same problem. I followed the manufacturer's advise and went into the Registry and changed the "drive type" to a "1" instead of the "3" that was listed. Apparently, a "3" indicates that the drive is only capable of reding discs. Changing the value to a "1" or "2" enables Windows to viw the drive as a recordable drive. Hope this helps.
Hi, have you tried one of those cleaning disks for DVD drives? It might help to clean the laser lens and not to be so picky, otherwise like all lens based drives it needs to be changed in some time anyway. Robert
