Hi, I bought a MicroAdvantage DVD writer a while back and have just gotten around to trying it. I've tried to back up a couple of DVD's, but they will only play on the machine I burned them on and I assume in the drive that burned them.
I used DVDShrink 3.1.7 and Nero 5.5 and TDK 4x + media. When I put the burned DVD's into my WinXP system with a LiteOn DVD player (163?) and try to open the disc it says to insert media. When I put it in a Win2000 system with a Toshiba 1512 or 1612? DVD it syas the disc is not formattted.
When I put them in my stand-alone DVD player it just keeps saying "loading". I was expecting that with that player and am waiting for BTC to come up with a new firmware (050) with the bitsetting option. Will I need a newer version of Nero to take advantage of that option?
What am I doing wrong? Shouldn't they at least play on another computer???? I had them checked as region free when I burned them, but I don't believe the DVD drives I'm using are region free, but i'm not sure? Would that make a difference?
Will -r media make a difference?
Any advise is appreciated!
