the -R or +R makes a huge difference if a Hove unit plays the burnd DVD or not. I made the mistake of buying the -R and never had a good burn to play any of my DVD’s. Thanks to the poster named www.keepmaster.com for pointing this out that I figured it out. THANKS to all , keep those posts going.
i burnd some dvds using bitorrent, the dvds play fine on my tv/dvd player (it is also a dvd recorder) the dvds will not play on anything else does anyone think that it being a dvd recorder as well has anything to do with it?
It should play back on your PC as well.
Also, it could be the DVD type or the DVD region settings on the disc that prevent other DVD players from reading it.
Being a recorder could help it, but not by much.
I have burnt over 1000 disks with two movies on each using ConvertXtoDvd. I also had similar problem that it will play on PC but not in dvd player, giving error message. My mistake was that I was burning at 8x. USE 4X SETTING ONLY
I had the same problem and found it was because my DVD player does not play PAL videos, and some of the movies I was downloading were PAL. What I was getting was a black & white image with these flipping horizontal lines. So, what you have to do is convert the files from PAL to NTSC (NTSC is the standard used in North America). To do this I use AVI2DVD, a program that is simple and FREE. Just Google it and download it. Beware of two issues: the converted file will take up a lot of space (8 - 10 GB) so make sure you have the disc space available, and it will take a long time to convert (5 to 8 hours) so set the program running before bed and it should be ready by the time you wake up. Then burn the ISO image file and you’re all set to go!
(#1) It is likely that your DVD player does not support your DVD disc. There are 5 types of DVDs: DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW and DVD-RAM. Check your DVD player to see which of these 5 types it supports.

I had same problem with TDK DVD-RW disk, burned in computer but not recognised by living-room DVD player & TV. Solved by using Imgburn (free - get with Google search)to do a full erase and reformat of disk in their 'Verify' mode. Then reburned disk as before and it worked fine!
I got Iron Man Movie torrent from the internet. I burned it on DVD using nero. When I try playing it on my DVD player in the living room, the video is fine but there is no audio. Pls.!!! Help!!!
I had the same problem, buried somewhere in the menu settings was an audio option that turned the sound back on. Sorry I do not remember exactly where it is. It may be in a different place on your player anyway.
The problem is the codecs used to compress the movie file. Older DVD players used only Mpeg and Mpeg2 codecs. Modern DVD players are able to play Xvid/Mp3 combination format. The latest DVD players are able to play h264 compressed movies. It is possible to install these codecs on PC hence most of the movies play on PC. But, it is not possible to install these on DVD player.
Hence, first establish which codecs are playable on your DVD player. Then get the required software with codec to convert the movie and voila!! It will play on your DVD player.
Just exactly as the topic title says. Some of the DVD’s I have burned will play on the PC just fine. But when I play them in the DVD player in my livingroom they “flip” or “roll” and are in black and white. The color and clearity are fine on the PC. Can anyone give me some info as to why this happens and how I can fix it?
