    DVD+R DL Playback Issues

    Well, still no-go. The Verbatim copy plays in my PC's drive no problem, but my PS2 still doesn't recognize it. My girlfriend suggests it may somehow be that DVD+R DL discs weren't really around when the PS2 was launched, so it just can't handle the format. I don't know if that makes any sense to me, but I give up, anyway. Maybe I'll get a dedicated DVD player someday and try watching one of these many copies I've made on that instead...

    DVD+R DL Playback Issues

    Wow, my li'l thread kind of exploded, here. Thanks again everyone for your suggestions. I had updated my burner's firmware after the first failure to burn a copy that would play on my PS2 (stumbled across a forum somewhere or other that suggested that). I have a TSSTcorp (Toshiba-Samsung) TS-H552B drive, BTW (this is probably crap, because it's just what came with my system when I bought it, but again it seems to have no problems with single-layer DVDs). I'm just getting around to trying to burn on some Verbatims tonight. I'll post later with the result...

    That game nearly gave me a heart attack.

    DVD+R DL Playback Issues

    I'm off to grab some Verbatim today! I can watch the file already on my hard drive in Media Player without needing a burned disc, but when the burned disc didn't work in my PS2 I thought I'd see if it worked in my PC's DVD drive just to see if the burning process had even worked at all. Thank you all for all of your help. And no flames!

    DVD+R DL Playback Issues

    I live in Edmonton, so Western Canada. This is my first attempt at burning a DVD. A day or two ago I did actually successfully burn a copy of the same file onto a Memorex DVD+R using a demo version of a different program, but the play-time was too long to fit (it cut off about the last 10 minutes or so). That program doesn't do Double-Layer DVD's, apparently, so I'm giving ImgBurn a go. The DVD+R played in my PS2 fine. The DVD+R DL's, not at all. I'll try picking up a different brand: thanks for the suggestions. BTW, does it matter that when I play back the DL's in Windows Media Player it recognizes the media as DATA and not, say, VIDEO or something? (I'm a complete noob, I know).

    DVD+R DL Playback Issues

    Sigh. $30 for the DVD's down the drain, I guess (at least it's only Canadian dollars!). Any specific suggestions on what media I should pick up (and should I still set the Book Type to DVD-ROM)? Thank you so much.

    I assume you mean to change it in Tools-Drive-Change Book Type within ImgBurn itself? I have now tried that, and unfortunately I am left with another PC-only DVD. Thank you for the suggestion, though. If there are any more ideas, I'd love to hear them...

    DVD+R DL Playback Issues

    Newbie, here, so I'll take any flames about how stupid I am without flinching as long as someone can please maybe help me out, too. Thanks in advance. I converted a video file on my PC to ISO (I hope I'm using the right terminology) and then used ImgBurn to burn a copy to a Memorex DVD+R DL. The DVD plays back fine on my PC, but when I stick it in the PlayStation2 to watch it, I get a screen I've never seen before on the PS2 saying to insert a PS2 or PS1 compatible disc. Granted, the PlayStation2 is not the greatest DVD-player in the world, but it's all I've got. I've tried burning copies both with no region selected and for region 1 (I'm Canadian), and it doesn't work either way. Should I be doing something specific with ImgBurn's settings, or do I just need a dedicated DVD player, or what? Any ideas greatly appreciated...
