welcome to the forum

if the burned dvd plays in your computer but your standalone dvd player says incompatible, make sure you haven't made a pal dvd and your country uses ntsc?

or vice versa

hi. imgburn burns as is. what you put in is what comes out. did you create an image and then burn? or did you use build mode to make an image of vob, ibf files?

also certain stand alone players won't play everything. better to go generic when burning videos. best buy has their brand Insignia which will play anything whatsoever.

also if you're doing anything concerning rule 19, i think it's 19, you should know that what you do depends largely where it goes. check out your blank media also.

i always go dvd-r when burning for stand alone. you'd be surprise how finnicky a player can be.

I see best buy has Insignia« - DVD Player with MP3 Playback/JPEG Viewer for $26.00 on sale that's pretty cheap! My old Apex is on it's way out, maybe I'll pick one up.

I was wondering if I should switch to +R's or stick with the -R's I've been using. Now maybe I'll stay with them. thanks

Your welcome. you won't go wrong w/ Insignia. Believe me.I'm going to snatch one myself soon. My magnavox is still holding up and it just about plays everything also.

As far as dvd+r's lot of the fellas like bitsetting and tweeking them to dvd-r's. it's fun and challenging to learn some of the lil tricks w/digital media, especially w/Imgburn which is an excellent burning application and free as well.

I personally stick w/dvd-r's simply because i don't plan on using them for other than my stand alone dvd player, and once it's on there that's it. Can't write over them or mess them up. You could always find great deals on dvd-r's, either online or at stores like Best Buy, Staples, P.C. Richards, etc....

Blank media is also something to choose wisely as many burners are also funny about burning certain brands. every once in a while if you haven't done so already try to search in the forums for anything you might want to check out.

There's sticky's on most of the things we usually use and ask about. They're excellent.

Other than that just keep asking, the fellas here will take care of most of your concerns, if not all.
