DVD won't play in Sony Player!!

Hi Pros,

I have made a DVD-R for a client using DVD Architect and he said that his Sony DVD player can't play it.
Will someone please help as what I should be doing? what have I missed here? I did play the DVD in Toshibaand Philips players and was OK.

Thanks again
Matthew

Once in a while, you'll run into a DVD player that won't play certain types/brands of media. Rare, but it happens. Also, some older Sony DVD players won't play back -R discs, but will only play back +R discs.

I have the same problem when I use DVDA. I find that I have to override the write speed from 16x down to 4x to get a useful burn from DVDA.

Did you use Dolby AC3 audio? Some older North American players will only play AC3 or PCM audio NOT MPEG Layer 2. One of my friends Sony players would not play DVD-R or +R but would play both DVD-RW and DVD+RW go figure!!! Sony seems to have the most problems from my experience including CD players that limit the number of tracks too.

If you are using +R media, find out if your burner/software supports changing the booktype to DVD-ROM -- this sometimes works to allow players to recognize/play the disc.

There was an issue with some dvd recorder/player units not being able to play DVDA Discs. One remedy was to open up a DVDA Prepared DVD in PGCedit, and selecting OK to automatically fix some "Streams" errors. Then burning the fixed DVD sometimes helps. Sony released a patch that addressed this issue (DVDA 4.b), but some folks still report issues without running it through PGCedit first.

Also, instead of using DVDA's burning engine, you can prepare the DVD to folders on your hard drive (or even a DVD Image *.ISO), and then use external software to do the burn. I have great results using IMGBURN, and others use CopyToDVD or even Nero (I don't like Nero, but others use it successfully).

Regards,
George
