Sylvania DVR90VF will not play home burned DVD-R disc
I burned Memorex DVD-R discs on my computer using DVD Cloner V and they will not play on my Sylvania combo player/recorder. I only get an error message. Might you have any suggestions so that I can play them?

1. The type of disc you are inserting is not compatible with your player.
2. The file format used to burn or create the disc you are trying to play is not playable on your player.
My guess would be number two. It is the most common problem that creates the "wrong disc" error. Check your manual for your player, or go to the makers website and download a free copy. Check the file format types that are compatible with it and have the person who created the disc download conversion software and burn a new one in a file format that will play on your machine.
In order for you to make the unit read home movies, you haveto make sure the AVI files are being converted to a DVD format. If the video isnot transcoded to that format, the player will not recognize the disc. You willneed to use a burning application that converts the files prior to burning it,or get software that converts files to DVD and then burns it to a disc.
Like you said the unit is capable of playing DVD RW and DVD-RW. However, some discs may not be compatible due to format of the files on the discs, software used and laser pickup. Some technologies used to record on discs can prevent optimal playback of the files by changing them which affects the ability of the player to read the file.<br /><br />If you are burning the discs, I would suggest you different software, make sure the video/audio files are being converted to a DVD format that can be played on stand alone players.

The MVD2027 has a bit of a reputation for being really picky about which discs it will play. It's often especially poor with recordable DVD's, and especially with rewritable discs. This kind of behaviour can also be an early sign of a failing laser head assembly.
All you can do is to try the movie recorded onto different brands of recordable dvd and also see whether it makes any difference using DVD+R or DVD-R. Other than that, there's nothing else you can do.
while u were burnin the disc which format of disc u selected.......if u selected data disc then some of the dvd players will not read those dvds..............u should not select data disc .................instead there r some options to burn the disc....it depends on which version of nero or the cd burner product u use
Try using a programme called dvd flick http://www.dvdflick.net/ to author your dvds and use imgburn http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn them. I had similar kind of problem with dvds burned with nero and now use dvd flick and imgburn all the time and have had no problems. They are both free programmes so hopefully they will sort the problem out for you :)
Unfortunately without a firmware upgrade the only disks you can use are DVD-R or DVD-RW. The tricky part is that you can ONLY USE 2X speed. Per my conversation with Sylvania there is a firmware update that will allow you to use up to 8x disks, but they are charging $17.00 for it.
