I make DVD's using Nero for burning. Family movies, etc. Some went to China and I got a report back that they couldn't play any of them. Got another burner from my local computer shop - this one is an LG 'super multi' - and still got the same problem when tested on my home DVD player which is a Target special, a 'Base 2301'. Sometimes the player just hangs like for minutes and then reports an error, other times it takes forever and finally reports 'DVD' and starts playing it. It played one like that today and though it was playing it was all jittery. But when I played the same thing on my computer using VLC it played without a problem. So I wonder if there are ways to check both on the computer and on the player? Like perhaps use the computer to thoroughly test the DVD. And perhaps some tests one can run - from a DVD I suppose - that'll thoroughly test a player? Because it plays alright on the computer it looks like a bodgie player. But the computer is testing its own work - if it is wrong somehow in how it burns the DVD's I guess it could be that it reads its own wrong work okay. (The old burner, still in the machine, reads them okay too). Any clear direction of what I should do in this situation?
