I recently purchased a Liteon 451S after reading the reviews over here. The possibility of being able to upgrade it to a 851S, expecially when it was on sale made the decision very easy.
I purchased it, installed it, burned a few data backup dvd’s which I desperately needed. and then the fun part came
I wanted to burn the avi files I have to dvd’s and watch them on my Samsung S222 player.
The first one (burned it onto a Memorex+RW) was just fine, it worked beautifully …
Then burned another one, and it went ok too, I burned just a few minutes to see if it worked. After that whatever I burned player would not recognize … I purchased Maxell-RW s and same result.
Purchased Memorex-RW’s same result. Very rarely it recognizes the dvd, mostly not. It plays fine on my pc.
Yesterday I got the booktype utility and set the typr to dvd-rom, and still it would not recognize the dvd.
I broke down and purchased a cheapo Cyberhome 300 dvd plyer from Wallmart last night. It played the the first few minutes of a few short movies with soem pixelaztion. Overnight I burned a whole movie (to a Memorex+RW set as dvd-rom) and when I tried the cyberhome did not recognize the dvd.
Is there a problem with my burner ? Is it the dvd players ? Can somebody help me please ? I am a computer engineer, but do not know much about this side of the profession and I am just thrashing …
Looking forward to some help …
P.S. I should add that when the samsung recognizes the dvd and plays it, if I turn off the dvd player and turn it back on, it won’t recognize it anymore.
