I have recently purchased a Ricoh DVD burner that burns only DVD+r disks. I have been trying to back up my movies with DVD Shrink and B's Recorder Gold (software that came with burner)and the DVD's wont play in my DVD player. I realise that the DVD player must be DVD+r compatable and I have tried the disks on 3 such players but disks wont play. I have managed to play the disks on one DVD player but this is not my player and they are not made anymore. I have tried 4 brands of DVD+rs and none work on my players but all work on my friends player that I mentioned. Also, to confuse me even more, if the DVD is small and doesn't need to be compressed using DVD shrink the burnt DVD's will play on all my players which makes me think its not the players or the disks. Please help, I have tried absolutely everything I can think of but to no avail.
