I am spanking new to this website and to DVD burning. Like some others I am having a problem copying a movie to a DVD. My main interest is to transfer family movies to a DVD so that I can share them with the rest of the family.
I bought and downloaded Nero 8 since it had these features. I copied two discs yesterday and was excited that they burned successfully. To my dismay when I went to play them on my DVD player they did not play. I got a message that they were not acceptable. Please tell me what I am doing wrong.

Thanks for your help.


Hi marval.

Firstly I would say that you must ensure that you are burning to create a DVD Video but importantly you should use good quality media.

Do you get any sort of error message?

Good luck


Welcome to the Forum.

And please check what kind of media your DVD player is capable to handle and what media were you burning.


Yes and ensure the disc was finalised.
