    There are two formats of DVD. There is DVD-R and DVD+R. Some DVD players can play one or the other while other DVD players can play them both. What formats can your DVD player play?

    I just rebuilt my computer but used the same drives.I use memorex media and [+] and [-]formats both used to work on my computer. The brand of my burner is BUSlink which i purchased at CompUSA.I'm thinking this problem has something to do with me bulding this new comp. I just dont know how to go about fixing it. Thanks

    Hi Mumbles19,

    Welcome to aD -

    Memorex is pretty good for data but since they job out their discs now the quality control sucks.

    When you first begin to burn a disc the laser goes through a test of it's ability to write to the disc. It's at this phase that a Power Calibration Error occures. In other words, your burner tasted your media and didn't much care for the taste.

    I reccomend using RiData, Ritek G04's or Verbatim DataLife - it's my feeling that by using a good media you'll be spot on -

    cheers

    When you rebuilt your PC did you do a fresh install of your operating system, or did you just let it boot normal with all your new hardware without a re-install of your operating system?

    If so try a re-install (recomended when a new m'board has been put in), also the m'board drivers did you install them?

    You could also try....
    If you have another machine in the house or a m8, try it in there see if itll burn? (eliminate your PC!!)

    Did you burn a DVD-R or a DVD+R? Lots of DVD Players will only play DVD-R or DVD+R but not both.

    Does the dvd play in your pc, this will validate that there IS actual data on there?

    If it does, then I would suggest that either your player will not support those discs you are using, OR the burning software used has not created a fully compliant dvd............

    Hey everyone, I have a real problem here, its related to this topic. I have a Sony DRU-700A Dual Layer DVD±R. I use Nero 6 to try to burn movies i have. I have used DVD Decryptor and I just use nero to copy those VOB files and such, and the movies arent to big for the Fujifilm DVD-R disc's i bought. So icopy the VOB and other files to the Video TS folder. After i burn them with no problem. My DVD player doesnt play them. The DVD player plays DVD±R plus MPG, So i cannot figure out the problem here.
