I used a dvd recorder to record movies on a dvdr and I'm now trying to make copies of the dvdr using my laptop's dvd burner with no luck. I have tried using a dvd copier, muvee maker and windows movie maker. My laptop will play the dvd but that's all. any questions and suggestions???
Yes, I did make sure to finalize the disc. I even tried to copy it and upload the info from a dvdr that I made sure NOT to finalize to see if that was why I couldn't copy it. It gave me some kind of error message each time I tried to copy it. I have tried using dvd decrypter, but I'm kinda stupid when it comes to this stuff, so I didn't really understand it.
thank you so much! I somehow managed to figure it out before I actually read this after searching and searching! I do have another problem tho. I made a dvdr from my dvd recorder and let my friend borrow the movies. When she put the discs in her dvd player it kept saying loading, and then no disc. she has played other dvdr's on there so she knows it will read dvdr's (that was my first question to her). I'm pretty sure the discs were finalized... they played on my laptop (remember I had burnt them using my dvd recorder). What could be wrong?
The best thing you can do for compatibility is use high quality discs, Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim. Stay away from verbatim discs that are made in India, there aren't too many of them, stick with made in Taiwan.
