there is a NEC DVD_RW ND-3500AG drive here as well. it’s a dual layer burner and DVDs made on it will play in the Magnavox player.
the burn size is 2.7 GB or roughly half the total volume of the disc. the files were created by Sony Architect Studio 4.5 and if you look in the “saved/burn” folder they are labeled mpeg.
if i burn using the Sony software to the NEC drive i can play them. using the same software, same settings except the LG drive – nada.
my other computer has both a single and a dual layer drive and using the Sony software there produces good results. it’s only this particular burner that i’m having problems with.
i can play the problem disc on the computer that made it using the LG CyberLink Power DVD player. that’s from either DVD drive. and it will play on my other computer using windows media player but only from the NEC drive. using the Lite-On drive returns an error.
i’m going to try the LG software since this particular video doesn’t need editing. i have the original file which is a mpeg import using a analog to digital converter.
