weird

I burned some DVDs for a friend on my EZ Quest burner (via my Mac and Charismac software); I tested it on both an old and new DVD player and it passed with flying colors! Even my tricky 1st generation TiBook played it (it hates DVDs for some reason). The friend says her (cheap, really it is cheap) 8 month old DVD player and bro-in-law's new PC laptop are getting disc error messages.

Any ideas? It played like a champ in my tests where DVDs can have problems in the machines. Economically, what should I do? It's not my problem if their systems are cheap....

That's the problem with the DVD market at this moment Heath.
It doesn't seem to matter whether you have a cheap or expensive
set. Some discs just don't play in some players. Or some burners
might even burn a disc that one player doesn't like but does like
when burned with another burner....

If you really want to be sure have your discs pressed.

How pricey is it to have discs pressed?

That depends on the amount of discs you need to press and
where you get it done. I'm not in your part of the world, so
I don't know any DVD pressing companies there. But I can't
imagine they would be very hard to find.

They don't press a single or a couple of discs I think though.

Yeah, I don't know how many people will buy a copy of my film on DVD.

BTW, what happened with the DVD-R not playing was that the people's DVD player (all models of Mintek) was made to NOT play DVD-Rs...
