    i've only just started using dvd shrink and nero to back-up my dvd's.when i play them on my pc they work fine but if i try them on my stand alone dvd player,it says no disc.in the begining i tried all types of dvd's(e.g. -r,-rw,+r,+rw)until i found which one plays on my stand alone player(+rw).having been recently given some +r discs,is there any way of fooling my dvd player into playing these discs or do i give them to someone else and carry on using only +rw.

    Hi mswalker

    A couple of questions to enable us to help you better

    1. Make and model of your DVD burner

    2. Make and model of your stand- alone player

    You can look up your player's compatibility here

    I hope this helps
