    thank you for this

    i have wasted at least 5 blanks and used all the varios prgrams on my pc. the resultant dvds work on other cheaper players but not the panasonic.

    the strange thing is that dvds that i recorded using the same media and the same programs, a month or two ago will work fine.

    i am perplexed.

    i finalize the discs as well.

    the panasonic just wants to format every time.

    thank you for this

    the crazy thing is that dvds burned a month ago using the same programs will work in the player - i get the formatting problem with both -r and -rw.

    if i format a blank disc in the player then the prgrams on my pc dont like it

    i am confused and frustrated!

  • thehouseflog May 15, 2008

    thank you!

    i am using dvd shrink or DVD FAB5. AVS copy DVD crashes with an abnormal termination message which is very frustrating even as avs support cannot fix this problem!

    i get messages on the player like UNSUP then PORT, or the screen asks me to format the disc. (it lists the disc as a DVD -RW (V)

    over to you!

  • thehouseflog May 15, 2008

    the player plays previously burned dvds fine and dvds off the shelf

  • thehouseflog May 15, 2008

    thank you ill try these two!

Many DVD players do not properly support DVD-RW s. The ones that do are very picky on how they are burned. Most of the time, you have to close the DVD so that it cannot be re-recorded again. Your DVD player is saying that it needs to be formatted because it does not understand what is on the disk. Try recording with a DVD-R instead to see if it makes a difference. Make sure your DVD player supports MPEG-4 or DIVX which are the most popular burned formats. If it doesnt, then no burned disk will work.

    Also could be a faulty disk too if your unit supports MPEG-4, DIVX and DVD-RW.

    Panasonics are notorious for problems playing DVD-RW because their software is poorly supported. It is possible that you may need to use FreeDVD and DVDFabDecrypter programs first. You can find them on Google and they most often over ride any error you may get on your DVD player.

I'm having problems playing burned dvds on my player. I wondered what the region is for it?


Three problems could exist here.
1 the disc has not been finalised
2 the disc may have not been properly formatted to play in a dvd player ( use disc authoring program like DVD Shrink etc)
3 the DVD burner may be on its way out.

The only verification is to try the disc in a friends DVD player (different make/model of course)
I would assume you are burning them "code free" of course, if not there will be a region code on the back of your DVD player. (square with a number from 1 to 6 in it)

Discs will not play back on dvd


What DVD's are you using +R/RW -R/RW some formats may not work especially on non-branded media some DVD players wont even play CD-R but will play some CD-RW of the correct brand.

I suggest that you try your finalized DVD in your PC then create an image using ImageBurn then burn the image onto a branded media and try again. Most firmware on DVD burners are very forgiving and will support a wider range of manufacturers and formats.

Hope this helps, you might want to look on your DVD players website for updated firmware you will need a blank CD and create a update disc using your computer.

Mine is Sony DVD player..I insert a disc and it says "CAN NOT PLAY THE DISC" and then the player shuts off. The other DVD works fine.


HI,
Check the manuel some DVD Players do not support DVD RW or -R +R formats.When Ifirst put my burned movie in I got the message that the player cant play that format Just ignore that and advance the Video to where the movie is starting then all my burned movies played fine. My Pioneer BD 51 FD does support DVD RW +R -R formats so be sure that you can play burned DVD RW +R -R on your Sony player. I was in Wal Mart the other day and they had some DVD players on sale but on the box it said that they do not play DVD RW +R or -R Burned DVD's so be careful if you do buy another one I went to best buy and found mine. Check first it will save a lot of hassle later. This software works great but it may not play in your DVD Sony Player there is a list here of compatible DVD Players


OR

your disc is scratched or a pirated one

you must remove the region lock off the DVD image you're trying to burn make it region free. your DVD player might have locks on which DVD regions you can play, your DVD writer doesn't come with a region lock that's why you're able to play the disc

I burnt a video to a DVD+R DL but not playing on my DVD player?


You don't need to format the disc, as it does this during the burn process. What you may find is that your NEC dvd player does not play DVD+R. If you can, re-burn the video on a DVD-R 8.5GB.

You can also compress the video to fit on 4.7GB dvd. Download a program called DVD Shrink 3.2. Put the disc you burnt in the drive, and run DVD Shrink. This will analize the film, and all you need to do is click on Re-Author and lower the compression. It even has a line to show how big the video will be on the disc. On a 4.7GB dvd, you don't want this any higher than 4,430MB.

Hope those work

Nero 6 and 7 does not provides us the facilitiy of burning the DVD in appropriate DVD Format. Instead it burns the DVD in the normal DATA Format, which is not supportable by our DVD Player. To play the DVD in our DVD Player we should burn the DVD in the appropriate DVD Burner which itself converts the extension of the movie and make it proper for a DVD Player to read it. It also adds some files to the DVD which is sometimes used by the dvd player in running the DVD.

Thank You

DVD disk


check to see what format your computer burns on.[ex:dvd-r, dvd-rw,dvd-+r,dvd-+rw]different dvd players play certain dvd formats.the format for burning on your computer is probably different from the dvd players that aren't playing the disc.you also must finalize the burned disc.
good luck
