I’ve been trying clonedvd and the dvds that I’ve recorded will play on my computer but will not play in my dvd player. It says incorrect disc. Does anyone have an answer for me?


#2

What media are you using? It may just be that your stand alone DVD doesn’t like it. Have you tried it in another DVD player?

@ tmack,

Suggest visiting the Video Help DVD Player Compatibility List and see what DVD Media plays the best in your particular stand-alone desktop player (http://www.videohelp.com/dvdplayers)

That being said your problem is most likely cause by the use of cheap, inferior, substandard DVD media.

A little help in deciding which DVD media to use.

Suggest visiting the CD Freaks DVD Recorder Forum (http://club.cdfreaks.com/forumdisplay.php?f=61) for your particular DVD Burner and see which DVD Media other Forum members have reported that work for them.

Suggest visiting the CD Freaks Media Forum (http://club.cdfreaks.com/forumdisplay.php?f=33) and see which DVD Media other Forum members have reported as good reliable DVD media.

Suggest visiting the Video Help DVD Media List (http://www.videohelp.com/dvdmedia) and see what other users have reported about particular DVD Media.

Concerning the quality of DVD media. The saying “You Only Get What You Pay For” fully applies to DVD media. If the price is cheap the quality is also probably cheap. Remember most dropouts, freezing, skipping and other related problems can be traced to cheap, inferior, substandard DVD media.

Some problems caused by poor DVD media can be overcome by taking a couple actions. Slow down your burning speed. Limit all background activity while Burning DVDs including Ant-Virus programs. Defragment your Hard Drive (Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Defragmenter). Check for Spyware by running Spybot-Search & Destroy (http://www.spybot.info/en/index.html)

I have windows media and I have tried to play the dvds in both my players and both say incorrect disc.

I have been getting the same message lately. My discs, Verbatim printable DVD+R 1x-8x 4.7G were playing fine before, but now will not play on any player including my computers DVD player. I am trying to figure out what is going on.

@ tmack & bhturnow,

Please re-read my #3 posting comments in this tread – Use Of Bad DVD Media !

I believe the problem that you are experiencing is caused by the use of cheap, inferior, substandard DVD media, which causes Read Error problems. A DVD that contains Read Errors is difficult for a DVD player device to play properly.

Suggest that you check you problematic DVDs with DVDInfo Pro (http://www.dvdinfopro.com) or similar program for Read Errors. Open DVDInfo and on the opening page look on the top menu bar. There is a little magnifying glass icon (Test Your Media For CRC Read Errors). Insert you problematic DVD into your computer DVD device and click on the magnifying glass icon and check for CRC errors. If DVDInfo Pro reveals CRC Read errors on you problematic DVD it is most likely the reason that your problematic DVD can not be played on you stand alone desk top DVD player. Your computer DVD is more tolerant in reading DVD disks with Read Errors while your stand alone desk top DVD cannot play DVD with Read Errors.

Saying you are using Verbatim printable DVD+R 1x-8x 4.7G Media does not describe the actual DVD Media you are using. Most DVD media retailers do not manufacture their own DVD media; they just purchase the media from a DVD media manufacture and then put it in boxes with their name on the box. To accurately describe your DVD media you need to provide the Manufacture ID and Media Code (Example- RitekG05). You can obtain the Manufacture ID and Media Code by using DVDInfo Pro (http://www.dvdinfopro.com) or similar software utility.

See my posting #3 in this posting thread for information on obtaining good reliable DVD media.

To summarize -> Your problem is most likely cased by using cheap, inferior, substandard DVD media. Purchase good known reliable DVD media and your problem will be corrected.

Best Regards,

I’ve downloaded dvdinfo and will see what happens.


#8

OK bjkg, I used dvdinfopro and it found no errors on my media and what I burn will not play on my players. What else can be wrong?


#9

Your player may be picky or it may not play that format of disc’s, any of the newer players should play all formats of disc’s.


#10

You are leaving out way too much information.

What DVD burner are you using?
What firmware version do you have?
What media code does your media have?
What DVD players are you using?
What speed are you burning at?
Have you run a disc quality scan?
Have you run a transfer rate scan?
Have you run CDSpeed?

@ globster,

That is why in my initial posting in this thread I provided a Web Link to the Video Help DVD Player Compatibility List (http://www.videohelp.com/dvdplayers) so that Forum Members tmack and bhturnow could check to see if their particular stand-alone desktop player could player the particular DVD media that used when making their back up DVD copies.

Thanks for all your info. I had to update my BIOS. Afterward all worked well.
