    I finally bought a dvd writer, a LG 4040B to burn my home-videos, and, of course, my first DVD went to the trash. I burned two: one with Nero 6 and other using the TMPGENC DVD AUTHOR, both of then play well on my computer but not in my dvd-player, a Philco 2100. My dvd-player works OK with this DVD-R media (Princo) because I cloned some DVD and it always works.
    Some ideas?

  5. I had a similar problem. I have two Panasonic CP67 and A110 players. I used LiteOn 451, DVD-R Ritek G03 and G04, Nero 6 and RecordNow Max 4.5. Burning at 4x then 2x, I realized the burned 2x disks still have problems but play better. I can not set to burn at 1x.

    Using Panasonic LF-D311 burner, which burns at 1x only, all burned 1x DVD-R disks play well on my CP67 and A110 players as well as on PC.

  6. so are you sugesting that i burn all the DVD's in 2x speed with nero? i just tried nero with 4x and i had no success...

  7. Tip: make sure the final size of the dvdr is at least 4.0G. some settop players don't like dvdrs that are too small. PCs will play these small DVDRs without any problem. small (< 4.0G) commercial dvds play well though, on both PC and settop.

    Richard.moreno you say that you use princos these are notoriously bad discs (however many people including myself have great results with these). You say that the disc plays fine in your pc but not on the player. This means that the problem must be one of two things.

    1. Bad Media
    2. Player does not support the disc created

    However you state that it plays dvd's you backup SO the problem must be with your conversion method.

    What was it ?, please post details including your source file.

    my conversion method is:
    Windows movie maker (.AVI)
    TMPGENC (.m2v and .wav)
    TMPGENC DVD AUTHOR (DVD files)
    Nero 6 (using DVD-film) or TMPGENC DVD AUTHOR to burn.

    Thanks for your attention.

    I am sorry capturing is not my forte, I would wait for a capturing expert. Don't get impatient someone will help.

    ok, no problem, but do you know some other conversion method using .avi files to get a DVD?

  16. Let's try again.

    What are the options when you burn with Nero ? (plaese post all of them)

    Which version of Nero do you have ?

    What speed do you burn at ?

    Have you tried another media ?

    Test with rewritable so you don't make more coasters.

    Have you ever burned DVD-R that can be played on your palyer ?

    If yes, what was the method ? Sofware, setup ?

    Just now I realized that there are two different people with this issue in this post. I was not paying attantion very much. Sorry.

    So dudumania,

    Maybe you answered some of these but, let me try to write it down if I understand what you are saying.

    1. Record from DVD Player connected through audio/video cables to DVD Recorder and result works fine on DVD Player.

    2. Image burned to DVD on PC and result is freezing on DVD Player.

    Now more questions....

    A. Are you using exactly same media ? (some media might have compatibility issues)

    B. What is your burning speed when recording image ? (sometimes burning in lower speed helps, try 1x)

    C. How did you get image ? Where does it come frome ? What tools are used ? (maybe image is wrong, try creating all the DVD files (not image) and using DVD-Video template to burn DVD)

  22. Now richard.moreno,

    You are using 2 methods to make DVD.

    1. Home made DVD authored with TMPGEnc DVD Author and burned with Nero 6 (using DVD-film) or directly with TMPGEnc DVD Author.

    This one does not play in DVD Player.

    2. You are making copy of commercial DVD by using DVD-Clone.

    This one work fine all the time.

    Now questions and same here... sorry if I am asking same thing again...

    A. Is burning speed same in both methods ? (lowering speed to 1x can help)

    B. Are media same in both methods ? (maye compatibility issue)

    C. Do you have by any chance anothe burning sofware ? (who knows... maybe bug in Nero)

  23. The 2 posibilities that come to mind are:-

    1. Bad Media (usually shows up at the end of the disk).
    2. The MPEG files are not fully complient or have errors.

    PC's are far more forgiving than DVD Players both on reading media and ignoring errors.

    Is it true to say that these are home movies that are captured and won't work, but DVD (Movie) backups will. Because if that's the case it sounds like its the authoring process you need to look at.

    If you're saying that discs with the same content work when written in one way but not another then that's a different issue.

    Just an sugestion... to check this... you can use function in DVDInfoPro. It has some kind of error scan function (don't remember exact name).

    In my case, I tried with another media and it failed again.
    I'll try to use another method to burn my DVD from .AVI (DVD2SVCD)
    Does anybody knows the method I describe before with TMPGENC?
    Quote Quote  
  27. richard.moreno,

    I have to respond... Let me clarify some terms on example. Each step cen be done with different tool but it doesn't have to.

    1. Capture - usualy in AVI but doesn't have to be. In your case I assume it is Win Movie Maker
    2. Edit - cut / re-order / delete / add titles / add or modify sound and lots of different edit functions. Can save to file on the end. In your case again Win Movie Maker.
    3. Conversion - converting from whatevr came out from editing to DVD Compliant MPEG2 video file and audio file (can be sparate or part of video). In your case TMPGEnc Plus. (not DVD files)
    4. DVD Authoring - creates menu and programing (how video is played) structure, plus transcode DVD Comliant video, audio, subtitle, e.t.c files into DVD-Video format (VOB files). In your case TMPGEns DVD Author.
    5. Burning - transfer (burn) DVD-Video files/structure to physical DVD Recordable media. In your case Nero 6.

    It just that I was not sure based on this "burn my DVD from .AVI" that you knew all that.

    So, explain better:

    pass 1 and 2: I use the Windows Movie maker
    pass 3: TMPGENC to transform the .avi files to .m2v and .wav files
    pass 4: TMPGENC DVD AUTHOR to transform the .m2v and .wav in DVD files (VOB, INF, etc.) in the directory VIDEO_TS
    pass 5: Burn with Nero 6 using dvd film format

    clear now?

  29. It was clear already

    Read this and answer in you can.
    http://www.dvdrhelp.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=782476#782476

    the other post was just ment to correct term that you used. "burn my DVD from .AVI". It more than just burn. Burn is only last part of the process. But that is not what you need now, right ? So let's go back to another post and see if we can make progress.

    BTW: Did you test your media for errors ?
