Dvd player wont play burned dvd files

here is what i use
Nero Ultra Edition 6.0

i convert to dvd-video file using divxtodvd and then burn with nero express but the files wont play. what it does is i’ll put it in the dvd player and it will load, then say play then stop and wont play. ive tried it on other dvd players and it does the same thing. i know the dvds work on my dvd player because i have used them before.

the only difference this time is im using alot of .vob files and what not like 60 and 70 .vob files. they are just really small files

Can only guess, not knowing the burner and media brand you use.

One option might be to try another media. Second, to use other software for that purpose, namely: DVDSanta.

well i think its memorex or maxwell but i know the dvds work on my player. i am burning them just like i burned em before except its like 70 .vob files or so. its alot of small clips. im using the NEC 3540A

It’s quite possible that as the DVD you’ve produced is not conforming to the standard of 1GB (approx) VOBs that the DVD player refuses to play it.

What you might be able to do is use DVD Shrink (or similar) to transcode the multiple VOBs to a more standard size.

I have had the same problem but found out that princo dvd media is not that good. when i use veratim it works fine but copying at 2 speed [ low the copy speed the better]try this Willyamm123 .keep in mind i think timc is right 2

Hello Folks,

Comments concerning CD / DVD Media

Memorex and Maxwell like numerous other retailers do not manufacture any CD and/or DVD Media but purchase CD and/or DVD from a Media Manufacture and put the DVD Media in a package labeled with their Brand Name. These CD and/or DVD Media Manufactures can be located anywhere in world and the quality of the CD and/or DVD Media can range from acceptable to pure out right garbage. Usually if the CD and/or DVD Media in the package states Made In Japan it is considered as acceptable quality Media. If the package states made in any other country other that Made In Japan the particular media is suspect and should be avoided. The only way of knowing the actual true Media Manufacture of any Media is using the MID (Manufacture ID and Media Code) to identify the Manufacture and identify the actual Media to determine the quality of the Media in question. In some instance even the MID (Manufacture ID and Media Code) has proved to be “fake” that was manufactured in some unscrupulous third world countries. There are numerous software utility programs similar to DVD Identifier (http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com), DVD Info (http://www.dvdinfopro.com), and Nero CD-DVD Speed (http://www.cdspeed2000.com/files/NeroCDSpeed_401.zip) capable of providing the MID (Manufacture ID and Media Code) of CD/DVD Media.

Suggest visiting the CD Freaks Blank Media Forum (http://club.cdfreaks.com/forumdisplay.php?f=33) and do some research on what DVD Media is of acceptable quality.

Best Regards,

well i know its not the 1GB .vob deal because i converted some music videos and put them on and they worked fine. ill try pasting the files together and making just 1 whole part.

True for Memorex, not for Maxell. They mainly sell their own manufactured media (that is excellent), even if recently they sadly also started outsourcing.

P.S.: it’s MAXELL, not Maxwell :wink:
