    I am anewbie as well and had almost the exact problem. My burned DVD-R played fine on the PC that I used to burn the disk, but not on my stand alone player. The experienced users on the Forums point out that the media that you record on makes a difference. I re-burned on Verbatim DVD-RW disk and it plays fine on all my players. Hope this helps.

    fuely,

    i'm a newbie myself but i have played around with DVDShrink and Nero 6.3.1.5 and was finally able to write a DVD with Book Type set to DVD-ROM, the most compatible for all dvd players. pls. note that bit setting to DVD-ROM is only possible with DVD+R media.
    if you have access to Nero 6.2 or greater, here's how it's done.

    In Nero:
    - click "Recorder"
    - click "Choose Recorder"
    - click "Options" (lower left corner)
    - choose DVD-ROM in Book Type settings pull down menu

    In DVDShrink:
    - Edit->Preferences
    - in File I/O, check "Enable burning with Nero"
    - click "OK"
    I believe you know the rest of the steps. Once you have made your copy, use DVDInfopro to verify your media and it will indicate Book Type = DVD-ROM, Media Type = DVD+R

    And yes, I have a Plextor 712A which does not support bit setting but Nero made it possible!!
    Good Luck.
