Your dvd player probably doesnt support the disk you burned the movie on. or then you did it wrong, the movies need to be converted into dvd movies first.

Why i can't burn dvd or cd on my computer


you will need software like NERO to burn cd or dvd select the option (burn image to disc) for mp3 cd to play on all cd players or if you try this go to your downloaded file and clik once left then once right clik then you see the option (send to) put cursor on that option then then another menu will come up then select your dvd drive if you cannot play that dvd after its burned you might need either dvd creator software or you might need a dvd player with Divx capability...you might already have dvd and cd burning software already on your pc like power producer im sure you'll get it on piratebay.org if you download utorrent first<(FREE) hope this helps be carefull of viruses on pirate bay

I am using XP I can burn DVD successfully but that burned DVD can't be played, but the dvd writer plays other dvd's, and burns and plays CD's without any problem.


If you are using windows to burn the a dvd movie, then it won't be able to be play because normaly windows would only burn files as a ISO file. You will need burning program like Nero to burn your dvd, it will allow you to make a workable dvd that you can play on dvd players and other dvd device.

Has my Acer Aspire T180-R97Z got DVD burning facilities? It can play DVD's. Thank you, Susan-Jane.


Yes, it has. You can't view DVD's because for that you need specialized codecs or media players. 
To view DVD's install VLC -   http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
To burn dvd disks that can be played on a regular dvd player you need to programs: one to convert your video file - i use

Are you trying to play on a set top dvd player or in your computer ?
if it plays in your computer and not a set top box either your set top box doesn't like to play DVD-R/RW or you can change brands of media

The problem you are having is the DVD player. Not all DVD players will play a burned DVD. Some set top DVD players are know for being very picky about what type of DVD's they will play, and Phillips is very bad about this.

If you have the owners manual for the DVD player, look inside and see what type of disc's are playable. if it should play them DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R. DVD+RW should all be listed.

Right now about 80% of DVD players do not play burned DVD's

In time they all will play them, but for some unknownn reason, some are still made without this ability.

Also, not all DVD-R's are created equal.

The best quality of DVD's to buy for burning are Taiyo Yuden. But Sony, memorex, and Maxell are also pretty good.

One way to be certain about the quality of the burned DVD's is to take one to a friends house or anybody you know who has a set top DVD player and see if it plays in their DVD player.

That will at least tell you if the DVD's you are burning are at fault or not. But my guess is that you r Phillips is the culprit here.

I hope this was helpful to you, if so a good rating would really be appreciated.

I have been buring DVD's since they started selling them for the PC. compatibility has been the only problem I have had.
My sony DVD player plays everything I throw at it.

Will it play on your computer?
Some older DVD players will not play this DVD...
Also, make sure you do not have multiple Burning software applications on your PC.
