I really could use some help here....
I've been trying to successfully burn some movies onto some blank DVDs, but seem to not know exactly how to properly do this. I've wasted many black DVDs and I'm flat out tired of making unsuccessful attempts.
Here's my "burning" setup:
Toshiba Laptop with Window 7
TSST Corp | CDDVDW TS-L633C
DVD programs I'm using:
1) Aimersoft DVD Creator
2) Express Burn Plus
Blank DVD type: DVD-
This is what I'm getting after a burn is complete:
When I insert one of my newly burned DVDs using the Amerisoft DVD Creator into one of my home pioneer DVD players: reads, opening menu appears on screen, and then the Menu screen "resets" itself after about 2 seconds of playing. Selecting the play/ enter button on the DVD player remote does absolutely nothing. I also get similar playback results with a Sony home DVD player.
When inserting a newly burned DVD using the [FONT="][FONT=Arial]Express Burn Plus software, the DVD player does the same thing. Seems to play the menu/ home screen for about 2 seconds and then resets itself (just like a needle on a broken record)
[/FONT][/FONT]I have not burned the ISO onto the disc, but instead simply importing the file into one of the above mentioned softwares, setting everything to NTSC, widescreen, and burning at 8x. The file types I've tried are .avi and .mp4
I typically have not changed any of the default settings, as they setting I recognize/ understand seem to be all checked.
What am I not doing right and/ or missing here? Can someone provide me with some basic ins & outs on this process, as well as recommending tried & true software to successfully burns DVDs?
