I'm very new to this and have sucessfully copied a DVD which I can play on my PC but it wont work in my stand alone DVD player. Is it possible to play copied disc's in a stand alone DVD player? The stand alone DVD player is a Toshiba (4yrs old) and cost me bucket loads of cash compared to how much you pay now....
Console/stand alone players generally do not recognize burned (dvd+r or dvd-r) media if they were made prior to 2003. Note that I used the word generally.
Several things impact the odds of a console player being compatible with burned media:
dvd burner software
burn speed....lowering the burn speed to 2x may help
In addition....some console players like +r media while even more favor -r media.
Your highest odds may be realized by burning onto cd's. Console players tend to be less finicky about playing cd's.
This is all quite a challenge. Buckle your seat belt and hold on.
