If you are using RW media, that could very likely be the source of the problem. Here are detailed instructions on how to determine or confirm the source of the problem.

After completing these steps, if it is caused by the DVD+RW media, re-record them on regular DVDs, and assuming your player will accept that media, they should play appropriately. Let me know if you need additional assistance, but thanks for rating FixYa!

A DVD RW that I recorded and have previously watched now will not play in any DVD player, including the one I recorded it on.

You may have encountered a problem that will eventually hit most users who write their own DVD's. The media used to create your DVD's is not immune from damage or aging, and will eventually fail.

You might try to play it on a computer from one of your familly members or friends. Different drives are better at potentially flawed discs. If one of them plays okay, it may be possible to copy your original disc on that computer to make a new copy.

Obviously, how you treat the DVD's you create plays a big part in how long they will last. If you handle them only by the edges, never lay them down on other surfaces where they might get scratched or attract dust, and always put them back in their sleeves or cases, that will help.

The quality of the blank DVD media is also a big factor in how long the media will last. You can search on the web for quality comparisons of DVD blank media to help you make a purchase decision. No media is perfect, and there are error-correcting routines that are used by your computer software to account for the minor surface imperfections that will be present on any blank DVD disc. But there are definitely DVD media makers who produce higher quality blank media than other low-cost makers. This is truly a case of "you get what you pay for".

One other note: While your blank media may say it is rated for "16X" (meaning it can be created using a disc rotation speed that is 16 times the normal rotation speed), I personally never burn my DVD's at the rated speed. Frankly, I don't trust that having the laser beam speed across the disc at 16 times the normal rate is a reliable way to create a long-lasting disc. So I always access the recording options for my disc burning software and set the burn speed to a lower value, like 4X, so ensure the laser has enough time to create a longer lasting burn image on the disc. This applies to CD blanks as well, where some of the drives support 52X speeds. While I don't have any research to back up my disc burning recommendations, I just feel better not pushing my equipment and my disc media blanks to their upper limits.

Unable to read dvd-rw from sony camcorder - wants to format

I had a similar issue. I could not read the camcorder dvd drive (sony hdr ux5) from my computer. I even tried several different computers, it reads the drive but cannot recognize the format. I made sure the disk was finalized, but did not help. Then I found the this article which suggested I down load CDRoller which I did (14 day trial version), finally I could read the drive on the camcorder dvd drive. Hope this helps you, if you have not fixed it already.
