i just got the img burner. so i can burn my movies to disc . when i tried burnning my movies. i don’t know what i did wrong but my dvds won’t play on my dvd player.
Welcome to the forums dragco.
There could be several things going wrong here. The first thing we need to ask is what format are your movies in right now? Are they already dvd-video? Or did you burn avi or mp4 or some other format to the discs?
Does your dvd player have support for formats other than dvd-video? You might look in the dvd player manual and see if it mentions avi divx files, or others.
Download a program called MediaInfo. http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en
This program comes with optional crapware/adware in the installer. DO NOT install the crapware that is offered with it. You can opt out of them during install.
Open MediaInfo and then open your original media file with it. Use the Tree view within MediaInfo and then export as a text file. Edit the text file and remove the name of the video.
You should be seeing something like this example:
General Complete name : Format : MPEG-PS File size : 278 MiB Duration : 9mn 56s Overall bit rate mode : Variable Overall bit rate : 3 906 Kbps Video ID : 224 (0xE0) Format : MPEG Video Format version : Version 2 Format profile : Main@Main Format settings, BVOP : Yes Format settings, Matrix : Default Format settings, GOP : M=3, N=12 Duration : 9mn 56s Bit rate mode : Variable Bit rate : 3 636 Kbps Maximum bit rate : 8 000 Kbps Width : 720 pixels Height : 576 pixels Display aspect ratio : 16:9 Frame rate : 25.000 fps Standard : PAL Color space : YUV Chroma subsampling : 4:2:0 Bit depth : 8 bits Scan type : Progressive Compression mode : Lossy Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 0.351 Stream size : 258 MiB (93%) Audio ID : 189 (0xBD)-128 (0x80) Format : AC-3 Format/Info : Audio Coding 3 Mode extension : CM (complete main) Format settings, Endianness : Big Muxing mode : DVD-Video Duration : 9mn 56s Bit rate mode : Constant Bit rate : 192 Kbps Channel(s) : 6 channels Channel positions : Front: L C R, Side: L R, LFE Sampling rate : 48.0 KHz Bit depth : 16 bits Compression mode : Lossy Stream size : 13.6 MiB (5%)
This file I’m using as an example is an mpeg2 file, but yours may be something else.
Once we know what you have, we should be able to help you a lot better. If your file is an ISO file, you might have to mount it in a virtual drive before examining it with MediaInfo.
