Default DVDs won't play on all players?

I have recorded some movies I bought (as backups) onto DVD R-
These all play fine on my computer & a couple other DVD players I have, except for my JVC DVD player (my home theatre DVD player)

Some of the recorded movies will play, others won't.

I contacted JVC & they said it must be on a DVD R- (what I am using)

Can any of you help me to why some of the movies I have will play while others won't? (all are recorded on DVD-)

Some that won't play:
Elf
White Noise
Beyond the sea

Some that will:
Insomnia
As good as it gets
Napoleon Dynamite

that's how the dvd world is, and it makes me mad too. you need to find a media that will suit individual players or all of them---this often requires experimentation. funny how they never mentioned what discs are compatible with their product like many manufacturers do. more info on your player can be found at videohelp.com regarding media choices.

i have also tried many different dvd's. the ones that give me no trouble are only dvd's from Verbatim. i also tried Sony, TDK and many others. and than it really depends on your dvd player which dvd's will it play or not.

Default Update!!! JVC DVD players

Update:

I contacted JVC & they confirmed that their DVD players may not be able to play certain files.

Tonight: I took the DVDs in question to Best Buy to try them out on various DVD players. The DVDs played on ALL models.....except the JVC players.

Tomorrow? The new JVC DVD player I bought is being RETURNED to Best Buy.

The moral of this story? if you use DVD-R's, Don't buy a JVC DVD player.

I hope this helps others.

Too bad you didn't post what kind of burner you have. If it could do bitsetting to DVD-ROM, then your JVC might still be of use.

My DVD burner is a Dell on a Generation 4 computer.

What do you mean?

Thanks,

Bill

Funny thing is...

All my DVDR's are minus, all recorded at the same time, same speed, Etc.
They all play on every DVD player & computer except JVC.

Figure that one out!

I understand.... some players just will not play the decrypt and shrink recordings.. only suggestion I have is to get a different player...some sony players are also bad about not playing... sony designs their players that way as they are a part of disney and do not want you to be able to play other than the orginal...

I took back the JVC & considered a Sony HTS, but the fact that most of their systems do not have powered subs, I cannot justify paying an above average price for a system that uses a wimpy passive subwoofer.

I do like the looks of the Panasonic SC-HT930 system.

And yes, it plays ALL my DVDs.

That is utter nonsense. Why in the world would Sony manufacture and sell DVD recorders and DVD camcorders? Are you saying that they intentionally cripple their DVD players so that they will only play pressed DVD's, and therefore can't playback DVD-videos created on their own equipment?

And for the record there is no such thing as "DVD minus R". The two main DVD recordable formats are plus R and dash R.
