Using latest version of AnyDVD and CloneDVD. Using -R DVDs. The players are between 2 and 4 years old. One of the players is a Panasonic DVD-RV26 and the suggested sites show that it works with both DVD +/-. Still will not play.
Could simply be that a combination of burner + speed burnt + software + type of disk + dvd player = disc won’t play even though specs say it should.
I used to have a Panasonic DVD player which was bought about 4 years ago. Although it should have played all DVD+Rs using Verb X16 +Rs, burnt at any speed, with nero, on a Benq DW1650, TY03s would have no problem whereas MCC004s would not be recognised.
First suggestion would be different burn speed / software and if that doesn’t work different discs. Although many people will debate the quality of certain brands, on older players quality of the disc does not always dictate whether or not it will play. Some players simply like a certain brand / type of disc irrespective of where or by who they were made.
This link may give a little help albeit that the comments made relate to 2001 - 2003 and discs available at that time. I did notice that about half way down the comments made by ‘Barney Medunic from Other reported February 14, 2002:’ suggest Maxell -R Discs burnt on a Pioneer A03 work fine, however, back in 2002 they probably weren’t X16s!
Just one last though - if the DVD is not fully compliant older players could have problems although I’m not sure how they would report this - ‘invalid disk’?
