I’m not terribly skilled at this, first off, but after studying the boards/guide as best I can I decided to try DL burning and splitting. Everything seems to go well, but the DVD Players don’t recognize the disc/s once burned. Obviously I’m doing something wrong, but darned if know what.
Gateway NX570X notebook with Intel Dual Core processor and ATI 128MB w/945PM and 1394 (FRU).
Optiarc DVD RW AD7530A (I believe it’s a Sony)
DVDFab Platinum 188.8.131.52 - not the trial version
WMP and Power DVD don’t recognize the disc/s
Magnavox DP1000MW8B DVD Player doesn’t either.
Oh, media is HP DVD+R DL - all I could find on the shelves at a lower cost to get started with 'cause I figured I’d lose the first one or twol. BTW, both DVD players recognize +R media according to specs. And of course the Optiarc had no trouble recognizing the media and burning it, leading me to think it’s not a hardware or media problem. My guess is I’m missing something in the setup? I did have PathPlayer enabled so I’d have the option to eliminate the annoying stuff.
Should I try disabling PathPlayer? I wanted to ask first 'cause the DL discs cost over $3.00 apiece and I didn’t want to waste another one if that doesn’t seem like a reasonable way to go according the experts here!
Thanks in advance for any and all help. My introduction is here:
