    A friend gave me a DVD with a home movie on it. It is one ISO file and I can't figure out how to burn it to watch on a stand-alone player. I tried with DVD decryptor but it always gives me an error. The disk plays on the computer fine. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hi,

    If it is a dvd-compliant image file, you can use Daemon Tools to create a virtual drive and mount the image onto the drive. This tool is useful to view ISOs (or any image). Try this first to see if it really is a image file of the dvd. When you have mounted it, use your desired dvd player on your computer to view it.

    Check out Bbmayo's site for a guide to help you burn the image (iso). Go to the middle of the page and start from "Burn the image to DVD" :

    http://home.comcast.net/~bbmayo/decrypter.html

    Also, make sure you use the latest version dvd decrypter. The current version is 3.5.4.0

    If you have any questions, or need additional help, don't hesitate to ask. If I'm unable to help you out, then someone else might have the solution.

    Here's the link to download Daemon Tools if you decide to use it:

    When you finally decide to burn the image to a blank dvd...There are compatibility issues to be considered. The brand name of the blanks are a huge factor of playback ability on your standalone. If you are using a cheap brand, such as Memorex (or ones "Made in Taiwan"). A lot of users have made a lot of "coasters" (unusable blank discs) while using Memorex. Some brand names to consider: Verbatim, Fuji, Sony, etc. Also, you may come across different formats, such as DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW... I suggest using dvd-r since it is [bold]most[/bold] compatible with standalones. DVD+Rs come in second...But you may have an older (or newer) standalone that can play all formats. If it works for you, then continue what works best for you. You can surf to other forums to find your answers also, using the search function on the top of the site.
