DVD Burning Configuration Problems?

    I've got a slight problem in getting my DVD's to play well in DVD
    players. It appears to play fine in my PC, and am curious as to whether
    or not it may be a configuration problem.

    The two DVD's I'm trying to burn are:
    - A copy of my wedding DVD, the original in DVD-R format (copied the
    VIDEO_TS folder).
    - A one hour edited video of my honeymoon, filmed with a digital
    camcorder and edited in Ulead Video Studio 7 Full Version.

    My hardware configuration is:
    - Processor: Pentium 4 - 2.4GHz
    - Motherboard: Asus P4PE-L
    - RAM: 512MB PC-2700 DDR
    - Video Card: Abit GeForce Ti4200
    - Capture Device: Pyro A/V Link
    - DVD Burner: Lite-On LDW-401S (DVD+R/+RW) - with the latest firmware.
    - Hard Drives: 60GB Maxtor 7200RPM (System Drive); 120GB Western Digital
    7200RPM (Video/Storage Drive)
    - Burning Software: Nero Burning ROM OEM (updated to version
    - Editing Software: Ulead Video Studio 7 Full

    The player that I'm testing on is a LDW-5000 DVD/VCR Combo, which, as
    much as I've been able to tell, supports DVD+R/+RW format.

    Sometimes the player will recognize the DVD long enough to play some of
    it before skipping and crapping out, and sometimes it won't recognize
    the disc.

    Many thanks in advance for any advice.

  2. Lots of help articles here http://www.videohelp.com/

    I think there are also lists of media brands with ratings, so you
    might try a different brand of blank disc

    You didn't say what type of recordable disks you are using. I've gotten bad
    batches of generic low cost DVD disks that burned fine but would not play
    correctly in stand alone DVD players.
