I burned a backup of Hero to a RiData DVD+R DL disc, using a Pioneer DVR-109. It plays back fine on my computer and another with a Plextor drive, but it wouldn’t play back on my player. The disc and menu loads, but when I play the movie, it jumps to the end credits, then back to the menu.
I know the Pioneer isn’t supposed to be able to do bitsetting, but Nero and DVDdecrypter report the disc as being booktype DVD-ROM, so I assume that’s fine.
I have the Panasonic DVD-F65. it plays -R, +R, and +RW just fine. I updated my firmware to the 1.50e before burning. I used DVDdecrypter to extract all the files, then used Nero 220.127.116.11 to burn. Not in a hurry to make $5 coasters, am I doin anything wrong??
