    When I try to play DVD+R's in my standalone DVD player, I keep getting the 'Disc Error' message. My DVD burner is a Liteon 1633s BSOS and I use Nero Recode 2 to burn the DVD's. I've tried changing the booktype to DVD-Rom, and I still get the error. I know the DVD burned b/c it plays in my DVD-Rom drive, but I am lost as to why it won't play in my standalone DVD player. My DVD+R's brand is Memorex 8x. Could someone please help me?

    Yeah it is more than likely that your stand alone DVD player dosent like those disks. Either the Brand or the +. Have you tried going to the website of the company that makes your DVD player and see what media they suggest you use or is compatable with your player.

    I checked videohelp.com, and it says my Toshiba SDK615 is compatible with DVD+Rs. Also, today I burned a DVD-R, which is also made by Memorex (CMC), and that seemed to work fine. But I bought a 30 pack spindle of DVD+Rs, and I'd really like to get them to work. Any help?

    It is the media, not your settings and not your burner. Today has been the day for this problem. :)

    I've mentioned many times today that two previous media I used to use, (a long time ago!!!) will not play in 2 of my 5 players, one being a Laptop DVD-Rom drive and the other one of my PC DVD-Rom drives. The media was Memorex DVD-R 4x which is ProsdiscS03 and the other was PRINCO, garbage from CompUSA. If you try a different media such as Sony, TY, etc. I am sure you will not have problems again. Give it a try and let us know. :)

    I just checked VideoHelp.com for the Toshiba SDK615 and there is a comment that it does not support DVD+R. I have had a few Toshiba DVD players and found that they prefer DVD-Rs. Can your Lite-on burner be made to change the book type of +R's? this may help the Toshiba read the discs, but in future stick with -Rs for the Toshiba..

    Today I burned a successful DVD+R Memorex 8x. I changed the booktype to DVD-Rom, and slowed the burn speed down to 4x, and it works in my Toshiba DVD player. Thanks for all the help.
