Hi ,

What format is the disk you have made in ?

Is it burnt as a movie DVD ?

To check this , pop in the DVD , open the DVD folder .

Inside the folder should be a VIDEO_TS folder , and AUDIO_TS folder .

Is this true ?

Also have you burnt to a dual layer , DL DVD , are the other computers compatible with dual layer if so ?

Also is the disk media -R or +R ? , this again may stop other computers or players from playing the DVD .

Thanks.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
