Vista burnt dvds fail standalone playback

Recommended Posts

I'm using ImgBurn to burn VIDEO_TS directory(s) to DVD on my new HP G70-212EM using the built in DVD writer ( TSST corp CDDVDW TS-L633m ).

 

The burnt DVD can be played on the drive it was burnt. However, the created DVD cannot be played on my standalone DVD player ( Sony DVP-NS305 ).

 

To try and isolate the problem ( and to eliminate media issues etc ) I have taken the exact same VIDEO_TS file and burnt to DVD using my works HP Compaq 6710b, running Windows XP Professional, on the built in DVD writer ( HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T40L ).

 

On the HP Compaq 6710b, using the same version of Imgburn and the same media ( Datawrite Yellow DVD-R 8x ), burnt at the same speed ( 4x ), produces a DVD that can be successfully played on the standalone DVD player.

 

I have repeated this test a number of times and every DVD produced on the HP G70-212EM fails to play on the Sony DVD player , whereas every DVD produced on the HP Compaq 6710b succeeds.

 

Have I got a faulty DVD writer on my new G70-212EM? Is it Vista issue? Firmware issue?

 

I have spent hours trawling the internet for a resolution, but to no avail.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated :-)

I bought and tried some Verbatim DVD -R 16x today - unfortunately I have exactly the same problem. Works in one environment but not in the other.

 

Is there anything else I can try? - could this be a Vista issue? Firmware? DVD Writer problem?

 

I appreciate your feedback so far ... any other advice would be welcome, my stack of coasters is getting bigger :(

The only thing that looks odd in that log is the speeds. As I can't find anything on the net about that writer regarding capacities (read speed) it might be that it only reads in 8x max.

 

The only thing that I found is that there seems to be a new firmware for that writer.

Can you attach this file to a posting window?

From the 4x write. Nothing odd to see.

Might be that the Sony player likes +R media better. That could be book typed to DVD-ROM and tricky players seems to like that better. The book type is done automatic in ImgBurn for a Samsung writer.
