A friend gave me a burned DVD with a video taken from a camcorder. My CPU drive will read it and play it through Windows Media Center, but neither of my DVD players will. One is older (a Toshiba VSH/DVD combo) and one is newer (within two years), a Sony Upconvert (DVD only).
The Toshiba says “Incorrect Disc”.
The Sony give me a message something like “Playback restricted by area limitations.”
I thought, hey, cheap disc. Even though my players will generally accept crappy media like Memoxex, I’ll just rip the files and re-burn them to a Tayo Yuden.
I used ImgBurn to rip the files and it gave me an .IFO and a .MDS (content has a menu). Also used ImgBurn to re-burn the files to a new disc. Well, same problem. Won’t play back for me.
So now I’m wondering…where does the problem lie?
