    You didn't give us much info but here is the first thing to check. Your player may not play the type of blank you burned.(Example:you burned a +R blank and you player only plays -R)

    I use Memorex DVD+R I have used it many times to backup and sometimes it works on the dvd player on my tv and sometimes it does not... My dvd Player is from Sony and it does play both DVD-R and DV+R for sure. I Shrink down the DVD with DVD Shrink and also burn it with Nero through Shrink. It always burns but it doesnt always play on the Sony DVD Player. Anyone know what it could be? Thanx

    First thing I would do is switch to a better brand of media like Ritek. Memorex is sort of on the don't use list right now. They are buying from CMC MAG, a company that makes poor quality media and using the Memorex name on them. Its trial and error when playing burned dvds on stand alone players.

    I mean it works about 50% of the time. Sometimes i get the best backups and other times it wont wotk for anything. What do you think I should do to get the best possible Backups? I use a Digital Research DVD+ and - RW/R Recorder, use Memorex DVD+R and try to play on a Sony DVD Player DVP-NS725P which plays both DVD + and -R Thanx for your time
