    RW media can be trickier on stand alone players. R media is easier for them to read.

    If you don't have nero,then this free program will tell us all the info we need:

    http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/dvd-r_tools/dvd_identifier.cfm

    This is the site where you can look up your stand alone players specs,and even feedback from other peeps with the same player:

    http://www.videohelp.com/dvdplayers



    Post back the brand name,model#,and current firmware version of your dvd-rw drive.

    Also post back the Media code (MID code)of your media.


    Players can have trouble with a certain: format,MID coded media,burn engine,sticker labels,and even certain burners.

    The best way to avoid this compatability issue is to booktype the plus format to dvd-rom.A booktyping capable drive,the plus format is superior by a landslide. In a non booktyping drive,the dash format is superior.

    Post back that info and we'll tell you if your drive has that capability.
