My memorex 16X DVD+R Discs to play in my home player

I have been burning movies on my laptop computer Toshiba but the 16X+R Discs won't play in any of my players. I even went and bought a ne Sony DVD player that says it will play them but it doesn't. In fact I can't get the DVD recorded discs to play in any of my friends players either. Can you help?

-r is more universal, +r is newer.
Howevr it could be what you are using and how you are burning the DVDs.
Try just moving the Video TS folder to the recording cue and burn just that (as data).

Dvd player won't play disc


The DVD read head may need to be cleaned. Sometimes perfectly OK drives also fail to read certain discs. If the problem is persistent, i.e. the notebook won't read any discs, then clean the head (with a head cleaner) and try again. If it starts working, fine.. If not, then you may have to replace the DVD drive. If the problem is only related to playing one particular DVD, then its the DVD that is faulty.
Hope this helps.

Windows Media player will not burn DVD movies to a DVD ,if you are intending using the discs in a standard DVD player, you will need a conversion software programme.

I have a movie in windows media player. How do i burn to cd or dvd


Hi there..

Windows Media Player does not support burning movies to video DVD discs. It does support burning data DVD discs, which could contain music and video files. However, data DVDs are typically not compatible with most home DVD players. Check your DVD player documentation for details.

I HAVE A BRAND NEW DELL COMUTER THAT CAME WITH ROXIE 10.2 SOFTWARE. AFTER I ATTEMPT TO BURN A DVD, IT WILL PLAY THE MOVIE ON THE COMPUTER, BUT NOT ON DVD PLAYER IN MY HOME


to burn a CD that can be read on a DVD player it has to be burned in a format recognizable to the DVD player, there should be an option that says something to the effect of 'video dvd' , that is the one you want

Hello tango13

(01) Which partition(s) is/are FAT32?

(02) Which partition(s) is/are NTFS?

(03) Do you mean your OS partition is FAT32?

A Microsoft Windows OS on FAT32 cannot "see" NTFS partitions. Conversely though, it can see FAT32 and NTFS partitions if the Microsoft OS partition is NTFS.

(04) If your OS is on a FAT32 partition, you need to convert it to NTFS if it is to be able to "see" other NTFS (and FAT32) partitions.

(05) If I didn't understnd you correctly, please, in detail, explain the problem again and tell us what the file system is on each of the partitions you refer to.

(06) What did you install from Toshiba OEM discs?

(07) Do you mean that, after performing one reinstall of WinXP Home that you then used the Toshiba System Restore CDs to restore the system again? (effectively wiping out the 1st reinstall of Windows XP you said you performed)?

(08) What precipitated your reinstalling your OS in the 1st place? (I ask because the reason(s) may be connected to the issues you are currently experiencing.)

(09) Your media player and codec issues are not related to your file system issue(s).

(10) How many **DIFFERENT** commercially-produced DVDs have you attempted to play in your laptop's DVD ROM drive?

(11) The DVD ROM drive spinning and not being able to read your DVDs is either (1) a media compatibility issue or (2) the media is dirty or damaged, or (3) a mechanical issue w/ your DVD ROM drive. In any case, I seriously doubt if it is a software issue. IOW, I believe it is a hardware issue.

(12) Make sure of the following:
(A) The movies you are attempting to play are actually on DVD media and not Blue Ray or some other media type that is incompatible w/ your optical drive (DVD ROM drive).
(B) The media (discs) are clean and not scratched, warped or otherwise damaged.

Please, post back here w/ answers to these questions along w/ any more questions, observations, or comments you might have. Let us know also what else you've tried in attempts to correct the issues you're experiencing.

Thank you
BJ @:)

Wont play commercial dvds


should i assume that the drive work previouly with com dvd? my annlysis of this problem is that the dvdrom is not able to read the format the dvd is in. the format of the hard drive does not determine the ability to read or not read a dvd. that is the job of the optical disc.so dont worry about the format that is in.ok. the other aspect of the ability to read dvd is the software. windows media player and other that are of age has a inability to play some new format dvd. best bet install the newest version of power dvd put the disc and check should start automat pending setting you may need to go to my computer and double clickon the romdrive. let me know.
