    You could have run into multiple problems the way you were going from player to player. The universal player format is DVD ROM. As mentioned, booktyping DVD +R and +R DL media makes the recorded DVD compatible with more players. Early players only supported DVD ROM, then -R was added and later +R. So you can have players that support any combination of the formats. Then you get into media compatibility. Suffice to say, not all players handle all media. That's why it's best to go with a well known quality brand. They are usually compatible with the broades range of players. Keep the firmware updated, use good media, and booktype and that's about all you can do (other than following good recording technique).

    Before condemning it, I'd suggest running DVD Identifier to see who made the Imation today. ;)
