Hi,

You have not pointed out what type of program are you using for DVD authoring. The option to finalize the disc is usually provided when you start burning.

I have an alternate solution for you which is easier. You can use the Windows DVD maker available in Vista Home Premium. This way you will not have to manually finalize the disc; it will take care of it itself.

Remember to install codecs such as k-lite basic coded pack for trouble free work with different formats. Then run DVD maker from the start menu. A tutorial can be accessed here.

Note that DVDs created by DVD maker can be played on most DVD players and on computer as well.

    Did you follow the instructions I provided in my previous post. I need to know the results before I can suggest anything further.

    I understand your frustration, but I need to know what software do you use to burn DVDs. You cannot simply burn a movie file and expect it to play on a TV (via DVD player of course). To make it play it must be burned as DVD movie or CD movie containing vob or dat files. Try using Nero or Roxio for this purpose. Let me know how it goes.

I have filmed with my sony camcorder on dvd-rw 1.4 gb mini discs and it will not read on any of my computers. How do I copy these discs to my computer so I can burn them on to another disc.


Well..., First make sure that your computer has a DVD drive (I'm sure you already know)

When you take the disk out of your camcorder, do you finalize the disk?? If I don't finalize it on my camcorder then I cannot replay it on a computer or a DVD player.

Just my 2 cents!!

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.

If your DVD Player is playing burned DVD, then its OK. Before erasing dvd data from your PC, confirmation of DVD Disc on another dvd player would be fine.

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

Cannot read the min handy cam dvds


The disc needs to be finalized before you play it on other equipment. But to do this will render the disk unusable- If you intend to record over it in time, So it is best to copy the info across to the PC- burn that to a disk and finalize it then most other DVD players[Not all] will run it.
