Burned DVD not recognized as DVD...

by SoulLifter / December 16, 2007 10:06 AM PST

Hi all,

I'm having some trouble. I burned a new DVD complete with all the .VOB files I wanted. It created a TS_VIDEO directory and had all of the necessary files in that directory. Unfortunately, it would not play. I checked another DVD, which I burned earlier, and it had the same directory format and files, yet it played and was recognized as a DVD.

What gives?

I used Nero Vision to burn the .VOB files. The only difference between the burns is that the one that DID work and DID get recognized as a DVD had .AVI and .WMV files it had to convert first. The unrecognizeable DVD didn't convert anything since the .VOB files were already there.

Any thoughts? Should I use something different instead of Nero Vision to burn .VOB files more effectively?

Usually we make Video DVDs or Data DVDs.

For instance if I were to copy my home video I have to be real careful to make it a ISO 1 or ISO 2 DVD.

Your post didn't detail the type DVD you made or it's file system.

I am trying to make a Video DVD. Essentially it's full of HQ .VOB music videos.

I selected "DVD-9" when I was burning it since it was a dual-layer blank DVD...

That doesn't sound like it would work.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
