The Burned DVD Won't Play in DVD Player? Solved.

Are you troubled by the reason why burned DVD won't play in DVD player, but can play very well on the computer? I know the reason exactly, cause I come across many people who have the same problem. The reason is that the DVD burning software you use doesn't burn a DVD in the right video DVD format. You may have burned your videos to a data DVD, therefore can't be played on DVD player. Almost all DVD players can't recognize data DVDs, but just video DVDs. Also, there are lots of different video DVD formats, such as DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD-R DL, DVD+R DL, etc. Different DVD players has their own DVD format specs. Probably, your DVD player can't play DVD because of incompatibility.

To fix this problem, you need to try another DVD burning software. Here, I strongly recommend Wondershare DVD Creator, as this powerful program supports any popular recordable DVD disc formats, including DVD-5 and DVD-9 (DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL, DVD-RAM). Just insert a blank DVD disc that your DVD player supports, and then use this easy-to-use DVD burning tool to burn it quickly. The whole process is just four simple steps.
