Default tired of burning coasters [; ; winXP]

sponsored links

I rip a movie DVD, make an MPEG1 file, etc., blah, blah. I burn it with Nero (latest version) as a VCD.

Here’s the puzzle: If I burn it to a CD-R, it will not play on my TV DVD player. If I burn it to a CD-RW, it works just fine! Both disks play on my computer DVD player using Power DVD.

QUESTION: Is the problem with Nero, or CD-R disks, or my home DVD player?

I know that opinions are like ***-holes (everybody has one), but I am interested in any opinions or advice that is offered.

I'm going to move this to the DVD forum. I'm not really clear on what media you're using since first you say CD-Rs, then later you say DVD-Rs. However I would guess that your TV DVD player doesn't play CD-Rs.

you say the cdrw works. is that the same brand as the discs that don't work?
have you tried more than one brand?

and I find it strange that the cdrw works! I have tried a cdrw in my cd player and dvd players and it registers as no disc!

*tut* don't you love technology
