    Unhappy Playback Problems

    Hi folks,

    I'm new to DVD burning and am looking for help. After several attempts I've just burned my first DVD. I've converted a DIVX file to vob and burned it to both DVD+RW and DVD+R. The DVD+RW works fine in my PC and on two different DVD players. The DVD+R works only on the PC. Can anyone offer any help or advice plaese?

    After creating the .VOB, you have to use an authoring program, such as "TMPGEnc DVD Author" (a different program than "TMPGEnc") to easily create the required additional DVD files and structure (and chapters and a menu, if you wish)


    **If the combined filesize of the DVD "package" written to your hard drive is greater than 4.37Gb, use DVD Shrink (or similar) to compress


    If your O/S is either Win2000 or WinXP, TMPGEnc DVD Author can also burn your DVD. Otherwise, use NERO to burn in "DVD-Video" mode
    (As an alternative to "TMPGEnc DVD Author", you could use "DVDLab")


    Let us know of your success ;>}

    Thanks setarip. After reading other posts on the site I used all of the above programs to burn the DVD. They've burnt fine but as I said in the post only the DVD+RW works on my DVD. I've tried the DVD+R and a DVD-R in another machine and they work fine so I'll try different brand sof DVD+/-R until I find one that my DVd player likes. Thanks again.

    You need to see if the player will actually work with DVD +R before you buy more.

    Check here.

    Thanks nwg. I followed the link and my DVD player is compatible with both DVD+R & DVD-R.
