I have a Dell XPS410. I’ve created a couple really cute videos on Roxio Creator 2009 that I’m trying to burn. The problem isn’t with the software, it’s in burning the disk and the amount of info I want to put on one disk. My computer says it’s capable of burning a 8.5G DVD+R DL disk, and it does so and is readable ONLY with my computer. The disk won’t play in my DVD players. When I burn my videos on a smaller 4.7 DVD+R disk it plays in the DVD player with no problem. I’ve done a TON of looking on the web for answers to this problem. What I’ve found is that in general, I may be able to get a DL disk to play in DVD players better if I can change the booktype bitsetting from DVD+R DL to DVD-ROM. Sounds great in theory, and I’ve followed several steps from advice I’m seeing on blogs, etc, but none of the DVD Decrypters that I’m downloading work with my computer (I’ve tried DVD Decrypter, DVD Bitsetter and DVD InfoPro and someone also recommended that I try burn express, which I did). I’m just wondering if this is possible for me and if so, what’s the procedure for a way around it. The reason why I’d like to figure this out is because it would be nicer to have 2 videos for the same year on one disk, versus having two separate disks for that year…just a convenience thing…and at this point I’ve put a whole lot of time into this, so I’d like to figure it out if I can… I know there are a lot of forums on this topic already but I haven’t found one that applies directly to me. Like I said, all the steps I’ve tried haven’t worked. Any help or guidance you could give would be awesome.
ps-I’m not completely familiar with all the vocabulary used on this site…so while I’m not completely illiterate, my learning curve is big…I’ll catch on quick, but please explain very simply.
