I'm trying to burn a DL (8.5) DVD for viewing on stand-alone DVD player.
DVD Burner: Samsung SHOS183L 8x +R DL DVD
Media: Memorex DVD+RDL
Software used to create DVD Video/Audio Folder: TMPGEnc 3 Authoring
Software used to burn: Various
I have created a standard (4.7) DVD using the video/audio folders created by TMPGEnc 3 authoring. This works fine on my stand alone DVD player. The DVDs were verbatium +R.
I have created a DL (8.5) DVD using video/audio folders created by TMPGEnc 3 Authoring. This will NOT work on my stand-alone DVD player. However, I can access the data files using my PC. In my XP settings, I have my PC DVD player set to autoplay "DVD Movie" movies using Windows Media Player. With these settings, the DVD DL menu pops up and plays just fine as soon as it's inserted.
Using the same DVD burner, Memorex DL Media, and Video/Audio folders from TMPGEnc 3 Authoring software I tried burning the DVD with different burning software, but all have failed to play on the stand-alone DVD player. I have tried Nero, ImgBurn (using "excellent" layer break), and CloneDVD. I have tried creating an ISO image and then buring that, but I get the same results.
I checked the samsung DVD burner and the memorex DL media is not on the recommended list. They recommend MKM for DL, but I couldn't find these DVDS anywhere even on mainstream online retailers. Even so, given that the DVD DL works fine on the PC DVD but not the stand-alone DVD, I suspect the stand-alone just can't read the format.
I haven't been able to test the DLDVD on other stand-alone DVD players. The stand-alone player I have is a VCR combo bought at walmart about 4 years ago.
Can someone help me identify the problem? Is there a way I can format the DVD DL so that the stand-alone DVD player will run it?
I really appreciate the help.
