    What dvd movie player are you using? WINDVD, POWERDVD? Or something else? You have to have a player that works with your OS and equipment.

    I am using intervideo windvd player, but the problem that makes me crazy, is that the burner, after burning the disk does not recognize it.
    Even in explorer he says that there is no disk in the burner and even in other computers, with dvd drive I can not see the disk it's like if there was not a dvd in the driver.

    thank you for your help

    I had the same problem on my DRX-500UL although the copied DVD worked OK in a Pioneer A03 and a standalone DVD Player. After I updated to Firmware 2.0e, everything was 100% OK. Strange because it worked OK until I upgraded to firmware 1.0g. Hope that helps.

    thank you all, but the problem remains, At the beginning, I was able to copy DVD, and As I stated I use smart ripper, then instant copy and after recornow to burn the disks.
    I could see them in the dvd burner (I do not have a DVD reader) only the burner, and also in the home standalone dvd

    Now I can not see a burned disk in the burner, but I can see them in the standalone.(?!)

    The only difference is that I have recornow and Nero installed, and at the same time I have a PCTV PRO, with the antena cable connected with the card...

    Anyone can help please. thanks

    Hi, Amrodi
    Have you ever try to uninstall the recordnows s/w and just use the Nero alone and see what is happening? I have experienced the recordnows which could work side by side with
    Roxio, but the roxio will never happy with the Nero at all. So I guess, just guess something must be conflicted in between....?
    Just give a wild try and you have nothing loose!

    Regards
