[QUOTE=LesStrater;2112705]Since you are burning video, you probably could have solved your problem by just switching to +R media. Using +R media and setting the booktype to ‘DVD-ROM’ will give you the best compatibility with standalone DVD players.
I have a video of a friend’s band that I have burnt around 200 copies of. When I started with -R media, several people reported that it didn’t play properly on their standalone players. I switched to +R and haven’t had a single complaint since. And since this video is a ‘give-away’, my friend supplies me with the cheapest 25-packs of generic media that can be found on sale–usually TDK, “Windata”, or “Dynex”.[/QUOTE]
Use of DVD+R instead of -R [or the reverse] would usually only possibly cure a playback issue where the device wouldn’t recognize either -R or +R at all [the same for booktyping]. That wasn’t the case here; it was poor media, poorly written that couldn’t be read well enough during playback to have flawless video quality.
