Burned DVDs won't play

I just purchased DVDfab platinum and tried to make backups of 3 DVDs I have. In all 3 cases the burned DVDs will not play in any DVD player. I have tried both + and -R DVDs and neither one will work. However they will play in the computer I burned them on, but no other computer or DVD player. They also show to be finalizing after they burn. I am using Windows Vista. Can anyone help me?

What type of burner do you have?
What type of Media do you have?
What movies where you backing up?
How fast were you burning the movies to disk?

:cool: :cool:

Please post a burn log. Directions in the link below. Sorry you’re having trouble.

Windows DVD maker
Verbatim DVD-R 4.7GB / Memorex DVD-R / and an unknown DVD + R
Zodiac / O-Brother Where Art Though / 8 Seconds
I am not sure how to tell how fast

I mean what type of DvD Burner?

IE: Plextor,Lg,Lite-On etc.

Yes please post a burn log for us.

:cool: :cool:

Is this the burn log you are talking about

Hi :)…just dropping by and spotted this.

  1. your burner is in Multi-Word DMA mode, which isn’t good. Follow the link in my sig (or there are a few others in the Fab forum with DMA reset links) to sort it out.

  2. RITEK G05 is not good media - even if you sort this out and get it to burn OK, chances are the disc will fail on you pretty shortly (happened to me and quite a few others).

I notice that you have a MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-851S 1.50 drive. Some MATSHITA drives do not work well wit Fab products. Also change packet writing to SAO in the Fab common settings. I am not familiar with the drive so try the SAO setting first.

Thank you I thank that fixed the problem.
