Hey everyone. Just getting into this stuff here. Will tell ya what I got and see if ya can help me.
Looking to burn copies of my DVD's. Some are gettin old and would like copies before they don't or won't play anymore.
I have a Compaq Presario SR1055CL computer. It has a CD/DVD writer in it. Want specs, you'll have to tell me where to find them. I don't know.
These are programs I have on it. Don't know if any of them will work for burning DVD's with these copyrights and actually work.
Ulead DVD movie factory
DVD Shrink 3.2
RealPlayer 11 that I usually watch my DVD's with on the computer, when I do.
Have a couple burned DVD's that someone else gave me. Some are DVD-R and some are DVD+R. Both work in my stand alone DVD player. My first try I burned a copy of a movie on both a +R and -R after Putting original through Shrink. Both will play on the computer, but neither will play in my DVD player. One player they just continually try and load. My DVD/VCR combo it gives me an error message......This disc my not have playback capabilities.
So, can anyone put me in the right direction as to where I went wrong and how I can get them to play. I have been reading a lot on here lately down to even having a bad brand on DVD's to burn too. Yes, I am currently using Memorex, but I know they will play in my DVD player, because I have some that were given to me that do. I only have them to try this stuff with until I know it's working right. Why waist money on the good stuff? Oh and my DVD player is a JVC XV-N50. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
