Encore burned DVD won't work in DVD Player

Tags: #error #encore #dvd #player #build

I just created, built and burned a DVD in the latest version of Encore on my i7 MacBook Pro. After the disc is burned, it works perfectly in both a PC and a mac computer. Unfortunately it doesn't work in my Vizio DVD/Blue-Ray Player. I have double checked to make sure normal DVDs play normally, which they do.

 

The contents of the DVD take up about 4.65 GBs of space and include a few PDFs as DVD-ROM.

 

I literally followed every instruction to the letter and am just not sure why it's not working in the DVD Player. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Please post a screenshot of your Encore flowchart.

     

    Does the DVD/BD player show an error, invalid disk, etc.

    I don't see anything.

     

    What do you see on the disk - Video_TS folder and one folder for DVD-ROM?

     

    Otherwise, I'd wonder about disk/burn quality.

     

    Does the disk autoplay and open a DVD software player on the PC, or how is it being played?

    I think it should work. I would try it with no DVD-ROM, just as a test.

    See if you can find one of these somewhere.

    And only use these blanks.

    Doing that, you're pretty much guaranteed the disk will work in any player capable of playing DVD-R disks.  If you find one that doesn't, switch to DVD+R for that player.
