Burn DVD on PC's, Play's On PC's, But Not DVD Players Or PS3!!


Hi Everyone,

I’ve got a bit of a problem, as the Topic title states. I’ve tried burning DVD’s using both my Desktop & Laptop, now the DVD’s play on PC’s (tried other PC’s as well as mine), but as soon as it comes to playing them on DVD Players, or my PS3, nothing happens. The DVD Players say there is " No Disc ", while the PS3, does recognise that a DVD-R is in there, but when it goes to play it, the screen remains black, and does nothing.

I’m using Nero, DVD Shrink 3.2 and DVD Fab 5 (which is what my dad uses, only he uses a older version of Nero because he uses XP)

My Laptop’s DVD Drive is a HL-DT-ST DVDRam GT20L, while my Desktop is a TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS-H653B SCSI

The Laptop writes at a Max speed of 8.0x (but I do it at 4.0x, because of the picky DVD Players), while the Desktop Max is 16.0x (again I write at 4.0x)

Both computers have Windows Vista running on them, and I use TDK DVD-R.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thankyou!! reply

Maybe the DVD Player is not compatible with your DVD Disc. You should change a DVD Disc and burn the video to DVD again.

Wonder share Video to DVD Burner which i have been using for 2 years, can support any DVD Disc. Such as DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW etc.

You may have a try. reply


was just a little iaattrred yesterday!! Anyways I finally installed it successfully today. Problem is when it reboots I’m not greeted..it goes to first boot settings like firewall settings etc. I was not prompted to enter a logon name just the password before reboot!! so after the settings screen i’m prompted to input logon then password..can’t because all i put in was a password..I came to the conclusion this must be incompatiable. My system is a 80gb 3 years old. The x hardware issue ? anyone? reply
