Trouble playing DVD in DVD player

November 30Hits:0
Advertisement
I burned a DVD with a slide show (first time ever using iDVD), but it won't play properly in a DVD player. Specifically, in one player I can't get past the title page, and in another, it won't even recognize it as playable at all. It works in the computer perfectly.
Any help?

Hi wizard523
Welcome to apple discussions. If it also works w/in apple's DVD PLAYER app then iDvd did what was asked of it. The rest sounds very much like a media issue. That or an issue with the dvd lens itself in terms of reading / recognizing your choice of media.
Things to try:
1. One or two Quick Shots of compressed air at the lens from a safe distance (usually 6-8 inches).
2. A quality dvd lens cleaner kit. I recommend Maxell or 3M.
3. Use a different brand like Verbatim, Maxell, or Taiyo Yuden and lower the burn to no higher than 4x.
4. If nothing above resolves this issue then try burning a disc image to the desktop from the file menu w/in iDvd. Then use apple dvd player to test for proper playback. Assuming it plays as expected then burn directly from the image to Dvd-R via apple's disc utility ot Roxio Toast. I prefer the latter, but both approaches work perfectly.
Just out of curiosity which brand and type of media are you currently using?
