    Can anyone help me here. I have the VHS hooked up with Honestech VHS to DVD version 2.0. I works great to transfer it to the computer and and makes it a MPEG 2 file, NTSC vide mode. What happens after I have it burned on a Sony DVD -R or a Verbatim DVD +R DL it will not play on my DVD player that is hooked to my TV. It will however play on the Desktop PC or my Laptop. So why is my MPEG 2 not playing on my DVD that is hooked up to the TV? I have also converted the MPEG 2 to an MPEG 1 with FX MPEG Writer and it still will not play on my DVD. I do know that MPEG 1 files will play on my DVD player that is hooked up to. HELP !!!!

    you must have another issue.
    Once converted to mpeg2 it is in the right format to be burnt to disc, and then play in your standalone dvd player.That player may be picky on the type of discs you are using.
    If you convert to mpeg1 all you are going to get is a vcd or svcd format file which should also be able to be played in a dvd player as long as it will recognise the format

    Try using imgburnor nero as the burning engine as i am unfamiliar with the programs that you are using.
    Supply us with a log file if you remember

    there are plenty of reasons why certain dvds won't play in other players:

    1. burning speeds: burn at 4x so there will be less writing errors (rule of thumb is to burn at half the rated speed of the disk--8X disk burn at 4x).
    2. read manual for your stand alone player and use the disks that will play in your player. If your player is less than 2 yrs old then it should play the + or - R disks! I said SHOULD that's why you read the manual.
    3. try booktyping your drive to DVd-ROM so it will make your +R disks more compatible to players. Read this:
    http://k-probe.com/bitsetting-booktype-faq.php
    4. make sure that there are no finger prints or scratches on your disk that make it hard for the player to read the disk!
    5. use good quality media (rule of thumb....buy the ones that are Made in Japan.) Verbatim is a top notch disk and is the only exception to this rule....some Verbatims are made in Taiwan and they are top notch!
    6. and don't burn too close to the outer edge of the disk ..... which will make the disk unreadable! but using good media you will be able to burn close to the edge better than lesser quality media. Just in case I only burn no closer than 4400MB, so if you can set your programs to that, all the better!

    follow these little tips of the trade and you'll have better success! good luck.

    Hi guys,
    Thanks for the advise. I'll be checking into NERO burning better. Since I posted this I tried to burn IMG burn on Nero, I've tried Data burn and I also tried making your own DVD video. To no avail none of them worked with NERO. However when I used the Intervideo WinDVD creater that came with this computer and I tried the "create movie from existing files or DVD" program ..... guess what " IT WORKED ". I used the same DVD's Sony -R's. I can view all of them on my DVD player. So I would say the problem lies with NERO.

    ok...... so you got some other program to work...... I'm not going to defend Nero but it is a good program! I also know that there are Nero versions that are buggy and you might have a buggy version. What version of nero do you have ..... can you post your Nero logs so we can see what you did and where Nero went wrong, found here:


    Nero 6 history log location: Program Files>Ahead>Nero>NeroHistory.txt

    Nero 7 history log location: Program Files>Nero>Nero 7>Core>NeroHistory.tx

    copy and paste..... thanks. happy that some other program worked for you...... welcome to afterdawn!

    Hello again,
    I don't have time to log it till maybe later. I'm not sure how to log it. I don't get any errors when I burn it. I just does not play on my standard DVD player when I burn it But I LOVE NERO. I really do. I think that is a great program. My Nero Oem is 6.6.0.17.I would rather get Nero to work because it would make life much easier. Thanks for the WELCOME.

    In IHoe's absence, I will answer this.


    Later version 6.6.0.18 from here, both packages


    http://httpdl1.usw.nero.com/software/Nero6/Nero-6.6.0.18_no_yt.exe

    Package 2
    http://httpdl1.usw.nero.com/software/Nero6/NVE-3.1.0.21_no_yt.exe

    Update your firmware to PSOB from here
    http://www.liteonit.com/DOWNLOADS/ODD/SHW-160P6S/firmware/DR16PS0B.rar

    You're always going to have problems burning DVDs as it's recommended to have a minimum of 512 mb RAM, I would consider adding a further 256mb

    You have Roxio installed, it clashes with Nero, to remove, run this zapper http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Uninstallers/Roxio-Zap.shtml

    Despite all of this the log shows burn as successfull.

    Thank you so much. I love this site. You learn so much. I will print this advise out and give it a try. Can I diable Roxio to use Nero? I need Roxio for the Real Estate Appraisal Business I do. If I can't I will have to unistall it. I am planning to update the RAM to a 512. I was actually hoping to upgrade to a 1 GB. I have the 256 MB DDR PC 3200 400mhz ram now. I e-mailed HP to see if I could add the 1 GB DDR PC 3200 400mhz chip in. I haven't got an answer yet. Would you know if this would be compatible to my PC?
    You guys are the biggest help I have ever had on a PC.....Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I'm a big fan of this site and I check for updates and such all the time. I talked my friend into checking out this site too. She likes it as well. You guys are doing a great job her. Just thought you all would like to know you are "APPRECIATED".
