If it is a DVD player, not a recorder, then it is not meant to format discs. DVD players are strictly playback only; they can only read and play discs; they cannot be formatted or recorded in any DVD player.

SOURCE: Recorded DVD will not play in another player

if you record something in VR format, then it wont play in your dvd machine despite what kind of dvd you use. You need to record in "video format" if your camera supports it. Problem with that then is you cant edit or delete scenes. Also you must finalise your dvd before sticking it in your dvd machine in order for it to play. You can unfinalise it later if you want to add more stuff to the dvd.

I bought a samsung dvx100. I am using dvd-RW disc and am restricted to recording in video mode only. If I record in VR MODE it wont play on dvd machine :( so i cant edit or delete now either.
p.s dont forget to finalise the disc.

Dvd player will not play dvd disc keeps saying cannot execute command


Some DVD players may display a Check Disc error.

Use a soft cloth to clean the disc; the disc may have fingerprints or smudges.
Examine the disc for any cracks or scratches that might be interfering with playback.
If attempting to play a DVD-R, DVD-RW or other recordable DVD format, make sure the disc format is compatible with the DVD player. For more details

I own a Toshiba SD-3980SU2 DVD Video Player. I keep getting an Incorrect Disc comment, and bad comment. I an using DVD-RW discs. I have tried disconnecting and reconnecting the player.


You are probably using incorrect disc formats in this DVD player; try DVD+RW if you must use re-writables, or DVD-R (finalised in a recorder or burned on a PC). I doubt this model supports DVD-RW, so the problem wouldn't be with the player; it would be the formats of the discs you use.

Don't use DVD-RW discs in this player if it does not support that format.

I HAVE BURNED A VIDEO TO A DISC BUT IT WILL NOT PLAY ON MY DVD PLAYER


It's possible that either the format of the disc or the format of the movie is incompatible with your DVD player. Not all players will play all of the disc formats, those being DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+RW, DVD-RW. Check to make sure that you have used a format that is compatible with your player; your manual, or even the box the player came in should give you a list of what will work.

The other possibility is the format of the video. If you made an exact copy of a retail DVD it should work as long as the format of the disc is okay. If you used the .avi, .divx. .mkv, format or anything similar, then your player may not be capable of playing it. If you are able to play the video on your computer, but not on your player, then the format may be the issue. Most players capable of playing those types of formats will have the DIVX stamp on the player, usually on the front of the player.

The only other problem may be whether or not you finalized the disc itself. Some players will not play discs that have been left open for more additions.

Hopefully this information will help you to identify your issue. Please let me know if I can supply you with further information.

I downloaded a movie on my computer. I burnt the disc and when I put it in the dvd player it says cannot play disc. I have a sony DVD Player. Any thoughts?


The exact model of DVD player matters. Not all models can play a Computer burned disc.
There are several types of DVD
A factory type DVD in DVD format
A burned movie in MPEG format
a burned disc in DivX format.
Etc.
Try burning the disc with a DVD Creator program, not just 'Burn to DVD'. It's not the same thing.

Hitachi dvd player not reading all dvds


Hello, I'm here try and help your problem, first older DVD players only read certain disc formats, If you have your owners manuel to your DVD player it will tell you what types of discs the DVD player will play. There are seneral types of burnable disc's DVD -, DVD +, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, please looking in the owners manual for the types of discs that the player will read, also in the same secton it will tell the types of formats that it will read DVD Video, DVD ROM, and there is a few others, Next is when you burn DVD's the type of burner you have makes a difference. You will need to find out what format your DVD burn, burns to disc, some of the newer DVD players
read alot of the formats. I would start by finding out what your DVD burns first, then I would suggest buying a DVD player that will read that format. If you have anyother questions please feel free to post them, Thank You and have a great day.
