Hi Gang - hoping for some guidance moving forward. I've been using DVD Shrink and NTI DVD Maker or Nero 6 on Memorex +R's - all have been working fine in my old DVD Player.
The Sony BDP-360 says "Invalid" on many (but not all) of my backups... - some play fine.
Any thoughts as to how to determine the best combination of Rip/burn and media so my future DVD backups will work on my Blu-ray player?
Thanks for any insight

Try different media and also DVD-R instead of dvd+r.
- Yup - that sounds like my next move - I just wasn't sure if there were any particular rip/burn settings that were the key to this - thanks for chiming in
I understand from an av installer friend that sony blu ray players are picky about playing burnt dvd'sPAL/NTSC problem solver.

Excluding the possibility that your burner is at fault, your problem is:
Burning second-class media with Nero.
I have the same set-top player as you (2 of them, actually) and have burned, oh, at least 70-80 Memorex DVD+Rs the last year without a coaster and all play fine on the Sony BDP-S360. Mind you, I don't trust them for anything important. I use them for AVCHD backups that I can re-do at will from my library. Memorex DVD+Rs are usually made by CMC Magnetics.
1) Burn DVD-Video with ImgBurn only. Forget Nero.
2) Burn at 8x speed.
3) DVD+R *may* be a problem, personally I booktype mine to DVD-ROM with ImgBurn. I'm not sure I ever tried to play a DVD+R on those players that wasn't booktyped.
[EDIT] And welcome to the forum. And on further reflection, corrected #3 above.

I have a sony bdp-350 and it plays any type of media i've burned,the only time it didnt play was when the burner was having problems which got replaced.I think,therefore i am a hamster.
