Hi guy’s, I’m not sure if this is the right forum but I could sure use some help with recoding DVD+R’s in such a way that they play on my home player.
My burner is Pioneer 108 and my home player is some really cheap “Nontaus” thing I bought on special about a year or more ago.
When I first got my burner I ran off a movie on each of DVD+R and DVD-R for testing. Both burns were 100% successful but only the DVD-R would play on my home player. I just assumed that my player was not +R compatible and only ever used -R from then on. BTW, when I put the +R in my player it scans it for a few seconds and then just displays “No Disc”.
Now somebody has just given me a DVD that is burnt on +R media and surprisingly it plays fine in my home player. This makes me think that my player is not incompatible after all and instead it’s me or my software that’s making incompatible DVD+R’s. It’s not just a “one off”, I’ve tried several +R media of various brands and they all come up as “no disc” on my home player but surprisingly work just fine on my friends home player of a different brand.
Recently I read something about “book type setting” for increased compatibility of DVD+R media. I don’t know what this is or how to do it, but perhaps this is the answer. Can anyone tell me how to make +R burns which are more compatible using my burner and nero6-full software (or other software if applicable).
