    the disc are made in taiwan( the bad ones that are not MIJ but i got them because they were cheap and i use them for stuff that i don't need to keep for long).......i burned the discs sucessfully but when i tried to play it in my standalone dvd player, it says "Disc Error", but it plays fine on the Computer...why is that? Is it the media problem? Or is it the drive problem?

    Let's find out who actually made your fuji discs.

    Download this free program:

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

    Open up dvdidentifier,insert your fuji backup disc,set it to the drive that disc is located,click identify,click clipboard-then paste back into your next post. It'll look just like this:


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Unique Disc Identifier : [DVD+R:CMC MAG-M01-000]
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Disc & Book Type : [DVD+R] - [Not Available]
    Manufacturer Name : [CMC Magnetics Corp.]
    Manufacturer ID : [CMC MAG]
    Media Type ID : [M01]
    Product Revision : [Not Specified]
    Blank Disc Capacity : [2,295,104 Sectors = 4.70 GB (4.38 GiB)]
    Recording Speeds : [1x-2.4x , 4x , 6x-8x , 6x-16x]
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [ DVD Identifier - http://DVD.Identifier.CDfreaks.com ]
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------



    When it comes to playing backups,some stand alone players can be picky. They may prefer a certain format-Plus/Dash,certain burn speed,certain MID coded media,certain dvd-rw drives,and even burn engines. Paper/sticker labels can also give them fits,in case you are slapping them on your backup discs.

    Fuji,like most brand names of media,have many different manufacturers,therefore a player can play fuji Tys perfect,but won't play a fuji prodisc.Taiyo yuden,prodisc,ritek are just a few of them.

    It's FUJIFILM03

    i burned a few disc from the same batch and they played okay on the DVD player so m sure it wasn't because of my DVD player...

    It sounds as though one disc is giving you problems. The others worked. The "Disc Error" message could be due to things other than either the drive(s) or the medium--if the disc is not finalized (id est, did not have information about its total contents and length recorded to its beginning once the full recording is complete), the DVD player will not be able to play it but the original computer/drive combination will be able to play. The DVD player needs to know what is on the disc; the computer drive remembers.

    It is also possible that there is a problem in the recording on the disc due to a flaw on the disc or a flaw created during recording. Only an examination and testing can determine the cause. It happens to everyone some time no matter how good the media or the drive. If it happens every time, then compatibility issues become the prime suspect. That doesn't sound like your case.

    Could also be that your stand alone player doesn't like +R media and you failed to booktype these disc, whereas maybe you booktyped others in the past.
