DVD Playback of digital photos

by jccole / April 11, 2006 1:17 AM PDT

I bought a Sony DVDirect unit to record digital photos and videos to DVD. The unit allows me to record directly from my Compact Flash Card to DVD-R without going thru the computer OR I can record to DVD+R using the computer's DVD recording drive. I can play either on my computer after recording but neither will play thru my TV's Sony DVD player. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

check what format you're recording the dvd's to. also check your manual for the dvd player. If the dvd player doesn't support the format you're recording in, it can't play the disc. Also, if the dvd player is relatively old, it may not support as many formats as most newer dvd players do.

Good suggestions but it doesn't matter whether I record it +R or -R, it still won't play and the DVD player (Sony) is current. Thanks for your response.
