I have an LG GSA-H42N that I purchased last month. I want to burn a homemade DVD, so I converted the .avi into video and audio files for a DVD so I can play on my DVD player.
Now at first, I used a Maxell DVD+R, and for some reason my DVD player, some Malata, was not able to read it (no disk). Although I know that it can read both DVD+/-R from my past, I decided to try some no-name DVD-R, which too, did not read. Strangely however, when I tried with a RiData 4X DVD+RW disc, it worked fine. Does anyone know why this is? I would prefer to burn my movie onto a DVD+/-R and not a RW, but it will only read it on that disc for some reason. Furthermore, I am pretty sure I burned it correctly as all the disc read off my 360 and my computer normally. I have also tried using other burning programs beside Nero too, i.e. DVD Santa but with no luck (wasted about 5 DVD-R's trying to get this to work =/ )
And on a side note, I also recently tried to burn a regular audio CD from this same burner. When I pop it into any type of CD player (except computer drives), some of the tracks are skippy or simply did not play. I figured this was because I burned it while my computer was laggy/doing stuff, so I tried again burning from a complete fresh boot-up. Problem still existed , so I decided to try my old Samsung SW-252F burner, and it worked perfectly fine the first time.
So is my problem coming from my burner? Or is it my DVD player? I am pretty sure that I have done everything correctly but I cant still get it to work (and I've wasted a lot of disc trying). Thanks in advance for the help!
