Lite on 9016g mpeg-2 unplayable

I have a lite on lvc 9016g dvd recorder. It records in mpeg 2 format. However, I find that I can play the mpeg’s in power dvd and real player but not in windows media player or quick time. I would really like to import it into adobe premier but this also fails despite premier stating it supports mpeg files. Does anyone know why I can play the videos in some players and not in others?

I see firmware updates available but there don’t seem to be any release notes to say what the updates do. Would a firmware update make any difference in the mpeg file?

Any tips appreciated, thanks.

First close the session on the disc. Then use Ripit4me to rip it clean from all weird addons. Then try to import the ripped contents.
