I have burned a dvd that will play in the pc but not in my standalone. The only thing I can come up with is that it didn't finalize the disc. I burned using dvddecrypter. I have nero but it won't work through that. I have a sony dru-500a and I know there have been burning problems with it. Do I need to format the blank dvd before I burn and what program would do the best job. I have roxio now and it does a quick format which I think doesn't do the job I need. Does anyone else with a sony dru500a have a foolproof method of the burning process?
