First of all: Hi. New to your fine forum.
Second: If appropriate, maybe a mod could rename my thread and move it to the correct forum.
Then my problem:
I have a Pioneer DVR-440H DVD recorder (can play DivX .avi files) which I use to wach divx and DVD on my TV. I also have a BenQ DVD+RW drive on my computer.
Now, I’ve downloaded 3 1/2 seasons of “One Tree Hill” for my sister to watch, but for some reason, my Pioneer won’t play my DVD+Rs with divx files on them.
All I wanted to do is to get 11 episodes of OTH (still in divx format) onto a DVD+R that my Pioneer DVR-440H can read.
First time I tried, I tried to use Direct Letter Access - Didn’t work. The file system ended up as UDF, and my particular player can’t read that.
So I checked some DVDs (with Babylon 5 divx files) which my friend had burned for me, which does work, and noted 2 differences:
- The file system was CDFS
- The media was DVD-R, not DVD+R
I managed to correct the first difference by installing and using Nero (version 220.127.116.11) which allowed me to burn with CDFS instead of UDF.
However, my PC can’t burn DVD-R disks. But I can’t imagine how that should be a problem, since the Pioneer can record and read both media types.
So I burned another one, still didn’t work. Works on all my computers, but NOT on the Pioneer.
I thought it might be some compatibility issue with the files themselves, but when I used a normal CD-R the Pioneer would work perfectly.
Even tried to use a Memorex disk instead of the cheap PC line disks I had been using, but to no avail.
I really have no idea of what to do, and the search function isn’t helping.
