For years I have used the same system to back up my dvds. I shrink with DVDShrinks and it burns using Nero. Maybe not the best method, but it's always done the job. I've used -R and I've used +R in the past with equal results. My dvd player has never had an issue before. Suddenly it won't play the burned dvds. Says it can't read the disc. I'm at my wits end. I've tried burning two different movies, using a -r and a + r. I've tried region free, and picking the actually region of my player. I've tried DVD-ROM, not DVD-ROM. I've used my internal burner and an external one.
I just don't understand because nothing has changed. Same burner, same media, same dvd player. All together I've burned about seven different copies of two different movies, that's 14 copies that won't play. Oh and they won't play in the Xbox360 either.
The only thing that I can think of is that I recently had a computer crash and had to recover the computer. I lost everything, but have since brought the computer back to where it was before. With the exception that I've got a newer version of Nero. I'm currently trying with IMGBurn, but at this point I've lost the faith.
Thanks, sorry so long winded.
