I use the Playstation 3 as my DVD player. However, when I insert the second DVD of a pair that was produced with the “Split” function, I always get an error indicating that “PAL DVDs are not supported”.
The PS3 does a fantastic job playing regular DVDs, so I’ve taking to watching the first disk with the PS3 and then playing the second disk on an XBOX360 because the PS3 won’t play it (the XBOX360 picture looks washed out compared to the PS3). I’ve tried creating split DVDs with both the “keep menu on second disk” option enabled, and disabled with the same results – except if the menu is kept, I don’t get the “PAL DVDs are not supported” message until I select the “main movie” from the menu.
Anyone else have this problem? Any ideas?
Oh, this is DVDFab Platinum v220.127.116.11 and, as I said, the XBOX360 plays both parts of a split DVD just fine. Same for the Oppo that I previously used, so it’s probably a PS3 problem but I also wonder if the XBOX360 and/or Oppo might just be more lenient than the PS3.
