Burned DVD's Won't Play on my Sony DVD Player

Page 1 of 21

I’ve got an issue I can’t seem to figure out. I’ve downloaded .iso files and burned them to DVD. They work fine if I play them on the DVD-ROM in my PC or if I play them on my laptop. If I try to play them in my Sony DVP-NS55P or my Sony DVP-NS725P player I get an error “Playback prohibited by area limitations” but they play fine in my in-laws Apex DVD player, go figure. The regions are set to 1 on both the ROM and Burner. I’ve tried using several different programs to the burn including Alcohol 120%, Nero, DVD Decrypter to name a few. Anyone got any ideas? reply

Download VSO Video Inspector is a freeware and check your dvd with. If you play your dvd on pc the software plays both Pal and NTSC systems and maybe your dvd is in different system. Are you sure your Sony’s play both? Pal system has about 25 frames per second and NTSC is at about 29.9 Check the info file for your download and find out more. reply

This is an easy fix. The iso is probably region 1. Use a program called clone dvd2 or shrink dvd to burn it region free as there are options to set the region to burn to. That’s all you have to do. reply

I had someone install Nero on my pc to burn dvd’s. They will not play on any of my dvd players. only on my pc. Im not a computer wiz either. I was told to buy a very cheap dvd player that is not coded. Do I really need to go through all that. Jane reply

Some Sony brand Northern model DVD players will play limited formats. Go figure all the money dished out..I also own a inexpensive Phillips brand DVD player wich plays my movies burned on a CDR wich are 700 MB in size..Movies burned on CDR are in AVI format with DIVX encoding wich the majority of movies online are encoded with..Do make sure the DVD player can play DIVX format wich will be stated on supported formats..Either spend hundreds of dollars on DVD media and software, tons of hours converting and burning or just purchase a $29.00 dollar dvd player at Walmart, Kmart that supports DIVX format and pennies on CDR’s GO FIGURE reply

Hi there-I just joined this forum and wanted to try to help some folks with burning problems. I’ve been burning movies for years and about 98% of them play fine.
Now, to start with, there are a few pieces of software that make this job super easy and fast. The most important one is called Convert X To DVD. This is the most popular software for not only converting the files to dvd, but it burns it as well. All in one program.
So,first off, download the movie you want to burn. Where you get it is up to you but I like file sharing myself and I use the site called BTJUNKIE.COM-If you don’t know how to use Bit Torrents, learn. You can get all the software there for nothing as well as all the movies.

So, use Convert X to DVD to first convert the file. It converts just about any format to dvd ,so you can play it on your home dvd player.After it converts the movie, put in a good brand blank dvd disk. I use Maxell-DVD-RW. They last a very long time. I only watch a movie once, so I erase it after and put another one on. I can usally do this about 10 times with this brand.
Stay away from the bargain blanks like Memorex and NEVER use Sony. And never buy a Sony DVD player. They won’t, in most cases, play back a burned disk because they have anti-piracy software built in. Sony makes alot of the movies ok?
So, no Sony blanks and no players. I have a Pioneer that plays everything just fine. I have a Sony that refuses everything thats not store bought.
Now, download the free program called DVD43-This small program is free and it just sits in your toobar and removes any and all videos that have CSS copy protection in them.

Because the blank disks have over 4 gigs of room on them, I usually put at least 3 -4 movies on one to save on the blanks. So, be sure your player supports either + or - format. Hopefully it will play both. And, don’t forget to seed! (If you don’t know what that is,you will once you get started) Happy burning! o, one more thing-when picking out a movie to burn, always get the ones that say DVD RIP-That means the movie is real and taken from a good dvd and not from some camera hidden in a popcorn box-lol big difference in quality. reply

The story is not like that,

I make my own movie from my camera, into DVD format, This movie can play in Computer very good, same for other Pioneer DVD Standalone player, but when I come to other DVD, Old one JVC XV-505 (Old) and other one SHARP, both can not play my own copied DVD, I think DVD media has something to do with this, Again I am sure that some software can make DVD with special instruction to be read with Old or new protected model,
Some time some DVD can work with my old model How, maybe my video has different test

So did you try different DVD author, there are so many, but must tried, I am sure someone will do the job reply

hi there

as a techno phobe and a newbie, I am confused as to why some dvds that have been burnt (not by me) can play on my sony dvd player but the ones i am doing, do not?? they play on my ps3, my tv/dvd combo but not the sony

i use windows media to burn, and i use memorex dvd to burn onto.. I am using 4x speed, and i dont particularly want to buy a new dvd player when the one i have is a very expensive one..

is there something i can download tha myabe the other person has who burnt the dvd that play on my dvd player!! really hope this makes sense
