Can the DVD-R disk be the problem? Help!

I need your help! I made a whole movie for my band, burned to DVD-R with Adobe Encore and it worked on all DVD players I put it into. I bought a bunch of cheap DVD-Rs 8x 4.7GB (without anything written on the disks face) and copied my master DVD to the new cheap DVD with Nero disk-to-disk. I realized, that this new one only works in DVD players with divx reading capability. Can this be the disk? I wrote the movie again from Encore, but to the new cheap disk and it had the same problem…only works on divx dvd players. So that is why I think it is the disk. Is this possible? Or somethings wrong with Nero?
Thanks for your help

Hi and welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Certainly a low quality media can give this problem. Probably the divx-capable players are able to read better than older standalones these cheap (aka low quality) media.

Some dvd players read better than others. I would say it is the disks and not nero etc. Best to buy high quality media, Verbatim or Tayio Yuden are the best now days.

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Main causes of this problem can be two: a very low quality media, or a damaged drive.

What discs are you using? You can find mediacode with cd-dvd speed or with dvd identifier

Yes try DVD+R media and a better brand if possible. Verbatim or Tayio Yuden are the best you can get them at
