Hi there, I'm having a problem with my stand-alone player in that it doesn't want to play any DVD I write. With some of the DVDs it merely says BAD DISC and with others it shows that it is reading but the screen is blank, it does show that the DVD encoding is MPEG2 however. I've reduced the writing speed to 4x and still the problem persists, I've tried writing in PAL and NTSE, but still nothing. When I write VCD it's fine, but the player doesn't support SVCD, could that be the problem? Is there a way to write a DVD that it can play? How is it that it can play any commercial DVD but not one that I write, is it the encoding or what? I'm using Nero 6 and have tried using several different DVD brands, I have also scanned some of the disks using the Nero utility and they check out fine except for one that I wrote at maximum speed. Another question would be that if my stand-alone is a bit old (bought it six month ago Sansui) how can I write DVDs for older players? Thanx in advance for anyone who answers.
