Recorded dvds



I’m trying to put all my old home videos on to a dvd. I’ve done this by transferring them with a dvd recorder. They play fine on the dvd player itself but won’t on other players or computers. Is there anything I can do to make it play? Or how do I stop it happening with other dvds?

Many thanks



If you recorded them on -R or -RW you need to finalize the discs on the same unit you recorded them on.


If they play on a TRUE dvd player they are finalized.
If you have used DVD+R then try with DVD-R, and vice versa.
