[QUOTE=Darlinka;2191437][B]I’m having the same (or slightly different) problem as dcd102572. I had never used DVDFab before, but had used other copy software (DVD Cloner)… I, too, have been using Memorex 16x DVD+Rs (waiting for TYs). I’ve tried recording movies at 8x and 4x [U]speeds[/U]. The copies will play on my Sony DVD set top player and my computer but will not play on my Samsung combo DVD-VR357. Samsung techs also thought the Memorex DVD media could be the problem, but these same DVDs were used to successfully copy programs from TV. Also, the copies played on other players even on my friend’s little portable player. Could there be a problem with the region setting or a conflict between my computer’s RW drive and the Samsung DVD player/recorder? Whatever the problem, it seems to be between my computer, the DVDs and/or the Samsung. My RW drive is a Philips DVD+/-RW DVD 8801 if that helps. Also, the Samsung techs had me reset the player and, supposedly, all of that was OK.[/B][/QUOTE]
No need to post in bold, our collective eyes are good enough to read regular font…
The only thing I can think of is, the various DVD player manufacturers, if they don’t make their own drives (and even if they do, my comments will still apply) get the drives from other drive makers, and build them into their machines.
This can (and does) cause a wide variety of drive sensitivity and affects their ability to read the reflective layers on the DVD blanks.
Without picking on any one DVD player Mfr., the fact that some of your players can read the Memorexes means, basically, that their lasers are set (or built) in such a way as to read faint write tracks. Others are not set in such a way, or are manufacturered at a level that won’t allow them to read the brands of blanks that have a lower reflectivity co-efficient.
Which is a wordy way of saying, stick with the quality brands of media - you’ll have far fewer coasters and problems.
