    I'm currently using DVD Cloner 8 program and have an HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4084N.

    I've been backing up my DVD's with a DVD+R 4.7GB which has presented no problems.

    Well, when the DVD is larger than 4.7GB, DVD Cloner 8 suggest that I switch from DVD-5 to DVD-9. When that's the case, I use DVD+R DL 8.5 GB.

    Once the back-up is complete, the DVD will not play in any DVD player. Though it does play on my hard drive. I'm confused.

    Can I come in on this one please as I have a similar problem? I thought I'd posted my query yesterday but it seems not - lost in cyberspace!

    A friend rcorded a TV program for me from satellite as I don't have the channel which showed it. He then transferred it to a blank DVD which plays perfectly on my DVD player and on my PC. However, when i made a copy to send to another family member that was featured in the programme, the copy I made plays on my PC but not on my DVD. Where have I gone wrong? I used the Windows 7 disc copy facility and yes, it happens to be a new Verbatim DVD-RW. (Grin) It's only 30 minutes, so well within disk capacity.

    Any help appreciated.

    Assuming this is DVD format video (VIDEO_TS folder) - I've run into this on Windows 7 too.
    The disk is 'closed' but it won't play on a standalone player.

    Copy or drag the VIDEO_TS folder onto the desktop.
    Run ImgBurn and select 'Write files/folders to disc'.
    Drag the VIDEO_TS folder onto the window and burn the new disk.
