Disk Error message on dvd player

I have had several disks that backup fine with dvdfab 3068, but when I put them in my player it stalls for awhile then says disk error.

It has happened on: The prestige, red dragon, snakes on a plane, flushed away, fox and the hound 2. (region 1)

Using maxell dvd-r with phillips DVD+-RW SDVD8820 AX03
I don't know if it is a problem with fab or the media.
Write speed is on recommended.

I have read that verbatim is the best media, but I live in a small town and it is hard to find. Where is the best place to purchase online?

3068 or 3086? You can find good deals at Newegg.com or Meritline.com both which are in LA Also you might try these settings Write Speed....4x or 8x
Write Type of DVD-R Media....SAO Writing
DVD Writable Media (DVD-5) Size....4464 (use customize in drop down )
Set Booktype to DVD-ROM....(put a check in the small box)

Re: Disk Error message on dvd player

also use a write speed of 4x or 8x to see if writing at a slower speed helps

Re: Disk Error message on dvd player

As Jim mentioned, Newegg.com is THE place to get most of your computer stuff. That's no lie. Which is really great because it doesn't matter where you live, your only a click away ya know. Also, Maxell is not the best media to use. I've had my share of bad burns using that media. Verbatim is outstanding media. It's always good in my experience with it. Also please follow Stormjumper's setting recommendations. I use them myself and haven't burned a coaster since I put my new burner in at xmas. Good luck copycat123 and welcome to the club, take your shoes off, ya'll come back now ya here, LOL. ~ Mike

Re: Disk Error message on dvd player

Do they play on your computer? Do they play on other DVD players? Some stand alone players don't play certain types of discs, IE.? +Rs or DLsp or any R or RW discs. I have one that will start out playing fine, then stall, start and stop and act up well into the movie.Ron
