Successful burn won't play

Recommended Posts

I have done many, many copies to DVD5 but recently have been trying to get a good DVD9 burn that will play in a standalone player with no success.

 

Sony DVD RW DW-Q30A (YYS2)

Verbatim DVD+R DL (MKM001)

 

ripped using DVDFab Decrypter

ISO created and layer break set using PgcEdit

burn by ImgBurn

-invoked directly from PgcEdit

-no warning messages in the log

-verify successful

scanned disc using KProbe2

-showed a very good burn

-PI max 33

-PIF max 5

 

DVD plays perfectly on 3 different PC's

DVD will not play in a standalone player. I have tried 4 different players (all different brands). 2 would not play the disc at all. 2 appeared to play but produced only a blank grey screen.

 

None of this points to ImgBurn as the problem but I would appreciate any help you might be able to provide.

It is possible that the stand alone player you are using is not set up to play either + discs or at least + DL discs. You could try bit-setting to see if that would work but what you might want to try first is, if you are close by a Circuit City, Best Buy, etc. to take the disc with you and try it in some of the newer DVD players to see if it will work in any of them. If it does then you know the problem is with your player and not the disc.

I'm quite sure Movie Junkie is talking about bitsetting your burner not a standalone player. Did you change the booktype to DVD-Rom?

No not bit set the player, but the disc itself. Also perhaps the movie in question is PAL and not NTSC? just something to think about.

That is just what I was talking about. I should have been clearer on that.

The book type is set to DVD-ROM for the +R media types.
Then it is possible that your standalone player do not like recordable media in general, + recordable media or at least DL recordable media.

That's often the problem with buying a rebadged drive, poor firmware support, the liteon 1635 is a very decent drive with much better support.
