I just upgraded to Vista Ultimate and tried to burn a few DL movies. The burning was successful (no errors reported) but the movies wouldn’t play in my DVD player. They do so in my DVD-ROM drive.
My first thought was that it was Vista causing the problem so I rebooted into XP pro 64-bit. (I havea dual boot system). Same thing happened there. Burning the dvd with either Roxio EasyMedia Creator 9.0 or DVD Fab Platinum yielded the same results. Single sided dvd’s work without issue.
I grabbed 5 dvd’s I burned a week prior to upgrading and saw the same issue so I’m confident that it isn’t the Vista upgrade.
I’ve tried burning on new Samsung and LG gsa-h42l drives using RiData and Playo discs. I didn’t have issues before. I also had a pioneer DVR-111d drive that I replaced with the other burners because I had started to burn coasters using DVD+R D/L discs.
Could it be the media? Do the newer Korean drives not like the media?
