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 :-)
