    cincyrob, on your older dvd player try using DVD-R instead od the DVD+R .alot of the older standalone dvd players dont like the DVD+R format even if there booktyped

    Yeah!aabbccdd may be right here.I do remember that our dear Doc said that he actually does have one stand alone player(forgot which brand it is)which won't play any kind of DVD+R media(even the taiyo one)whether booktyped or not and would read only the -R medias.

    Some of the older player will also look for the AUDIO_TS folder which many folks leave out nowadays. If it isn't there they won't recognize the disc.

    Oh!!!That's what would explain all these movies my dad has not been able to watch on his sony dvd player and on my uncle's sony too.It always keeps saying "NO AUDIO_TS FOLDER".But these sames discs will play fine on my most recent Samsung player.

    Thanks Nephilim for opening my eyes on that.So i guess that when i burn any movie now,i must include that AUDIO_TS FOLDER even if it looks empty.Am i right?

    Me too i use Nero,DVD Decrypter,CloneDVD2,DVDShrink to burn.But the discs that don't play on these sony players were not burned by me,they were copies made by i don't know whom exactly.At that time i did not even have my own pc :( It's true while burning with these programs,they do take in charge all the files that need to be included for the burn.

    But i do remember one time while i was trying to backup something,i can't remember what exactly,but i was using Nero and i saw two folders in which i should drag files into,one for video and the another one for audio and i just drag directly into the video one and ignored the audio one.And i think if my memory is good that the disc did get some problem in playing on the sony players.You know, when you're new in something you just do things upside down,not knowing exactly what you're doing,i guess that's what i was doing at that time.But now i burn and know exactly what i'm doing,without doing anything using the trial and error method.

    It's only when nephilim mentioned the AUDIO_TS FOLDER,then i remembered about seeing something like that before.

    But thanks anyway rick5446 for your concern and for trying to help.I appreciate that.

    with clonedvd2 it lets you choose if you want to add the audio_ts.i have never checked that when im burning that might be a problem there. like you said it doesnt look like anything is there. it allways has a 0 in it...i will try some -R's will have to buy some and give them a try.... its just got me baffled as to why some disc are perfect and some are getting the freezing and pixels... but trying some 35c disc are cheaper than buying a new burner or a dvdplayer..... which i think i need a new burner anyway...lol..just excuse to tell the wife i need a new plextor...lol

    cincyrob..Again I say I've not used a burn program that does not create both AUDIO & VIDEO_TS.Regardless how U store them on your computer.
    Buy a BENQ a lot cheaper with QUALITY Burns

    Good price but I'm not a fan of lightscribe. When they come out with colors then I'll go for it.

    cincyrob, let us know if they work. there junk media but if they dont work you arent out much use them to backup data or something. and if they do worrk get TY or Verbatim in the DVD-R format .oh BTW DVD-R stands for DVD dash R NOT minus lol. so its DVD dash R or DVD plus R to be correct

    aabbccdd..If this is a plus[+]!Then why is'nt this a minus [-]?
    Why is it just a slash?why not a dash!

    it is a dash lol .the DVD-R format came out first and was NEVER intended to be called minus. DVD dash R is the correct way to say it

    @ Cincyrob
    Supermediastore.com is having another TY sale, $49.99 free shipping for 200 TY disks, they list the 4X speed, but my understanding is that they haven't shipped and 4X in a few months,

    Can't believe you bought CMC Mags, You get hit in the head with a foul ball recently?
    This link isn't coming out correctly for some reason, sorry guys. I have edited this 4 times, looks fine when I edit it, then adds the junk in front when I post?

    well i used them junk disc. did failure to launch. (which is the one i did on my 16x plus r verb and acted up on me)and it came out great looks like my pioneer just doesnt like plus r media other than TY's i burnt it at 6x took about 22mins looks like i start buying dash r disc or get me a new dvd player. i also burnt ultra violet on the junk media(khypermedia) at 8x which is max for that disc and no problems on my pioneer either
