Default Dvd Backups

[B]I've never used DVD Copy X but unless I'm mistaken, all it deals with is the creation of DVD doesn't actually burn the files onto a DVD...or does it? At any rate, the problem may be with your burning program. Are you using Nero to burn? Your problem sounds like a common Nero problem...if you don't set the ISO characteristics correctly, you'll end up with a DVD that will play on a PC but NOT on a stand alone player. If you are using Nero, post a reply to this post and I'll post the correct settings. [/B]

I am using Nero to burn (unsuccessfully). Thanks for the reply, I would be most greatful for the ISO settings you mentioned as i am starting to lose patience backing up my own stuff. You have mentioned the problem in your reply - all backups play back on PC only. I can't get anything to run on the PS2 either. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you download & install the latest update for Nero, you can use the wizard or Nero Express and choose DVD-Video, this will make all the correct settings for you automatically. Also the latest version has many bugfixes

I still think it's more likely to be your media (disks) .... what brand are you using ? if they are cheapos (Princo rubbish), try using a Ritek disk. These are far more reliable and much better for movies, as they are compatible with 95% of standalone players.

The disks are Packard Bell 2.4x, 4.7 GB Capacity. They most probably are **** disks, wish I knew before I bought them, they weren't cheap!

Thanks for the reply.

Re: ISO Settings

I don't know if you have solved the problem yet...but try this...on the new compilation screen, click on the ISO tab, check off " ISO level 1", check off " ISO 9660 ". Make sure that these two options are the ONLY ones checked off on this screen. Then just burn. Let me know what happened. Good luck!
