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?

Thank you.

    I had several hundred slides put on a dvd. I can play it on my my Pioneer DVD Recorder and VCR. I made several copies on the Pioneer unit (play the vcr version and it copies to a dvd. I can play them on the Pioneer unit after burning, however we can't play it on a prtable DVD and my daughter can't play it on her unit. I used DVD-RW discs initially, but I saw that the original was on a DVD-R. I made a copy on the new disk, and still have the problem.

Some units jusy won't play certain types of recorded DVD discs. I would transfer one to a DVD+R type and see what happens. Buy a good brand like Memorex.

Hope that helps...

My dvd player keeps saying 'incorrect disk' why? and what can i do to stop it?


I don't understand your problem.
Is it the TV or is it the DVD? You say you tried other dvds and the problem is still there. Looks like the TV is the problem. Sometimes it's hard to help people when they only mention on screen issues. How can first DVD say 'incorrect disk' and then another dvd, and another still say 'incorrect disk'? It just doesn't seem to make sense. Is the contents on the disk a computer recorded movie, film or home movie? If so, you have to record the film on the disk with a format that accept the DVD. Could the DVD be a Blu-Ray, can it play a number of video formats, DVD, DivX, KviD DVD, etc.? Try first with a purchased movie DVD disc, if it doesn't work, then the DVD is faulty. DVD players these days are meant to play a wide range of video format, including CD discs. If you have an old DVD player, you may not play latest discs. But if the DVD is incorporated with the TV, then you have to insert a new movie and see if it plays. Go to an appliance or TV DVD store and talk to them. Or you can purchase a new movie and insert it in. If it doesn't work, you can always return it. As you said, you've tried different DVDs, sounds like it is a separate DVD player. If so, try other movie discs. I get the same warning only when I insert discs with movies I recorded on my computer, such as Pinnacle video editor.

Burned dvd displays small image on tv screen


Dvds have many display formats.
If the screen is small on some, then press the "wide" button on your flat screen tv remote. It will offer you bigger screen format options.

It depends how you burn movies (for example). If you burned as data disc, it's probably won't play it. Make sure you burn movies as DVD format.

Sony RDR-GX315 DVD Recorder. Error message: "The disk can be neither played nor recorded"


Which blank media do you have?
Check out CDFREAKS.com forum
Does your burner prefer + or- disks?
Try a slower burn speed
Try a different blank media.
Don't buy the cheapest disks

I have good results with Verbatum, Taiyo Yunden (Fuji)

My HDD/DVD recorder will not format discs.


You can format only RW disks. If you are using R (recordable only once) disks you don't need to format them, just burn directly the movies.

Unknown disk error on philips dvp 3020


I would guess that it's an incompatible disk format. If your burning software allows you to pick different types check the Philips manual for a compatible format

Older DVD players play either - or + type The disk is not bad it is just not the right type for your player Get your self some DVD-R and DVD+R disks burn a movie on each and see which your DVD supports.

Invalid book address


Hi,
this is to do with settings in Nero.
The book-Type is settings For CD/DVD et,c.
The actual Format the disk has to be written in. If you,ve got the book-type set to write a CD for example, and burned a DVD. it would error as it needs to write more data, than the Disk Allows.
CD 650mb. DVD 4370 mb or equivalent.
I,d uninstall-re-install nero, and ensure you select your type of disk to Compile. Which will automatically select The Correct Book-Type for The compilation required.

Cannot burn AVCHD disk. Get this error


The problem with creator 2009 has been fixed by the roxio people.
Instead of burning directly to the DVD disk as roxio software states,
one needs to first save this to be AVCHD movie as a file and then burn directly from the file. This works OK, but as stated this is different
from what the software claims. I'm happy. Thanks
