I just did a search for this and was unable to find anything, so I’m hoping this has not been previously covered. If it has, I apologize. For whatever reason, when I transfer VHS tapes to DVD with my Panasonic recorder and attempt to play them back, I can play them without a problem on standalone DVD players, but I am unable to play them on computer DVD players, at least not past the first 5 or 10 minutes. Does anyone know what might be causing this?
I am using Verbatim DVD-R media, but have tried other brands and I am experiencing the same issue. The discs are not only not playing on my PC, but on two other PCs as well. When playing the disc, it only shows approximately 300 MB on the disc, but goes blank after 5-10 minutes and shows the remaining time on the disc, but not the data. I believe something about the way my recorder organizes the files on the disc seems to confuse PC DVD drives.
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
