So I bought myself a DVD recorder inorder to record films & stuff for my dad... & myself... His DVD Skantic DV 900 does not play the DVD created by the Pioneer - I et bad disc on EP output format. Now when I try the DVD on my PC (XP OS), nothing happens except DVD device seem to spinning but file explorer hangs... For dad's DVD i can try other output format SP, Fine... but that probably wont work... I have to take a DVD created by my Pioneer & test on a new DVD player in the store... What about the PC? Since my file explore hangs i need to find out why... I need update on PC SW for OS and maybe commercial viewer & to ripp DVD and chnage format? What? Please advise!
