DVD Burning / Playing Problem

vbimport

#1

I have a movie that I downloaded and is on my hd. I have opened the image with dvdshrink, all looks well, so I burn it. The burnt dvd plays fine on my computer but when I use it on my dvd play hooked to my tv is doesa not play at all.

Yes, I have played many copied dvd on this dvd played hooked to my tv, and yes I tried this burnt dvd on 3 other playeers just to check and I get the same results.

It seems to me that the dvd’s I have a problem with are the ones that I d/l. If I copy from an original I have no problems.

*** What am I doing wrong or is there somting special you have to do ???

Please help
Thanks

But why does it play on my cpu ??? with the menus and everthing and not in a regular player?? Its just driving my crazy… I have tried to read the burnt copy with Alcohol120% and then re-burn again, but I get the same thing…

:sad:

As you don’t same what error you get on the DVD players it’s hard to be sure what the problem might be.

So a complete guess on my part would be that the movie you’ve got is in NTSC format & you’ve a PAL player/TV or vice versa.

The erros is Unreadable Disk. I thought that because I burnt it with no “region” that I would be able use it in a PAL system.

How can I check to see if the DVD is in NTSC or PAL ?

thanks

If you can download IfoEdit & open any of the ifo files in the VIDEO_TS folder it should very simply show you.

ok, ill do that right now !


#8

alright it say, Mpeg-2 / PAL

So that means that it is in the correct format ? I guess, for North America.

What, else could I check or do before I burn it, to make sure it plays in a home dvd player?

PAL = UK & Europe etc
NTSC = USA & other areas.


#10

Ah…that’s the problem !!! Is there anyway to change this ? From PAL to NTSC ?


#11

I found a thread on changing and I am trying it right now. Thanks for your help. I am burning again as I am trying this message. I hope it works. I clicked on region free with dvd shrink but I guess it didnt really do the job I thought it did.
