Alright, I’ve about given up. I’m creating nothing but coasters now.
I have a Toshiba dvd player…about 1.5 years old. Manual says it reads -R
I have a Plextor 708A with Roxio “Easy” CD and DVD Creator.
I have used the following media:
Use DVD Shrink to copy dvds to my pc.
I have been struggling to burn a dvd my Toshiba can read. I have a friend who has a differerent dvd player but uses Roxio and DVD Shrink. He says he just drags the folders to the Roxio Drag to Disc icon and burns them. He sent me a movie he copied (as a test) on a +R disc and my Toshiba read it fine. But, anything I try to create using the same process on my system (using different formats and media) won’t read on the Toshiba. Oddly enough, everything I’ve burned WILL read on my laptop (Dell) dvd player though and will read on another buddy’s laptop but not on HIS home dvd player or my girlfriends home dvd player. She also has a dell laptop and it reads fine.
The discs I burn will read on my Plextor dvd player until I eject and close…then they seem to have problems…they seem to bog down in the menu after ‘closing’ the dvd.
Finally, I downloaded an upgrade from the Plextor website thinking this might be a software issue so I should have the latest, greatest software for the dvd burner.
I’ve tried both ISO and UDF and neither seem to make a difference.
I realize I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed but even a monkey can drag and drop…
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
