    Hi,

    After installing up to date version of Nero 6 as recommended by member here. I am happy to say it works after having trouble burning disc before(used to say disc is full).

    Now I am having another problem, after successfully completed burning disc with Nero - I am not able to play movie on my DVD player. When I put it on my computer DVD drive, it doesn't come up with anything in explorer (title of movie). However if I go to powerplay and press play - it works.

    I was wondering what the problem here is? The disc I burned was Verbatim DVD+R. Will this mean I have to booktype it? What do I need to do? I have spent most of the day reading everything in forum and internet about booktyping ..... and have tried booktyping it to change to DVD-ROM using softwares such as DVD Decrypter, Nero, DVDBitsetting ... no luck as it won't allow me.
    Anyone have any idea to help me here?
    Thanks

    What is the make and model of your DVD burner?

    Not all burners will booktype. Also have you tried your DVD in other players just be sure it is a good copy? I have a few suggestions for you to try.

    1. Try the disk in other DVD players (friends, family's etc..)
    2. If the disk plays in other stand alone DVD players then you will need to either booktype the disk whis Nero will do automatically assuming your drive supports this.
    3. Try different blank DVD's like some DVD-R.

    What is the brand and model of your stand alone player?

    Is there a reason why I am not seeing title of movie in explorer? When I click on DVD drive in explorer, its blank but if I open powerplay and press play - it somehow works ....

    So, how do you make Nero "booktype" the disc?
