    Hi,
    Hope someone can help - please!
    I burned 2 avi movie files onto a blank DVD-RW and all was well (they played fine on my PS3), but when I put the disc back into my laptop to erase and burn some new files the player doesn't recognise there is a disc in there!?!
    It works fine and recognises audio CD's and video DVD's though. Can anyone tell me why this may have happened?
    Thanks
    LLOJ

    apparently the DVD-RW aren't compatible with the laptop or the standalone DVD player use either the DVD dash R format or the DVD plus R

    also when burning DVD-RW keep it at 4x max burn speed

    Thanks SoZoIV. I am guessing it could be that but my laptop actually says it is compatible - must have burned it on the wrong speed. Am going to try DVD+RW instead at 4x burn speed.
    Thanks again.

    Saying that - why does it still recognise the DVD-RW that I have burned a DVD file onto and not the one with the DivX files on?
