It seems like hit or miss. For example, I was trying to burn Taking Lives. I tried several different programs. DVD Decryptor,CloneDVD2, Nero 6. I reauthored it with DVD Shrink and burned with Decryptor. They all play on my computer, but I put them in my Settop DVD player. I just get a Disc Error. The playback feature may not be available on this disc.
