DVD+r's have trouble in my player

I have made a few DVD+r's on my PC, and my player (JVC XV-S200) will only play about half of them. The menu screen is fine, but, the movie will only play for a minute or 2 before the player gets stupid, and stops playing.

All DVD's will play fine on my PC with PowerDVD!?! I don't think there's anything wrong with the disks.

Any suggestions ???

You didn't say what brand of media you're using. Is it all the same? Not every brand of media plays in every DVD player. Your PC is a lot more forgiving.

Here's some comments from other people with your player. Not a lot of people are using DVDRs on it.

Using noname media "Ultra DVD+R" 4x compatable.

Looks like it's the player though. I've had trouble with this one with SVCD's too. I think it's time to upgrade. (media and player)

Tx for the quick reply

I think that's your best option. Check out that site I linked you to for reviews on players and media. I'm sure you'll find some good matches at decent prices.

My JVC XV-65GD doesn't like DVD+RW or DVD-RW media at all.

And I have a Sony that prefers -RW. Go figure.

Have you tried setting the booktype to dvd-rom? or does your buner not support bitsetting?

I have a player (older toshiba, born before +r was even invented) and it will not read a +r disc (it says disc error everytime) unless I set the booktype to dvd-rom.

BTW, you can only do book type setting on + types of media.

*looks around for X before posting comments about things relative to DVDs and computers*

/me pets his Lite-On 811S for having the ability to change booktype to DVD-ROM, among other things like burning TY, Ritek, and Ricoh 4x DVD+R at 8x, region free, KProbe, etc, etc.

*don't look, just follow the rules*

I haven't upgraded my 411's firmware to the next rev which allows booktype setting yet. I'm considering just converting the 411 to an 811 first now that the problems in doing that have been rung out.

The only problem is people being greedy on trying to hack their Lite-On optical drives as many times as possible, and in this case, 401S to 411S to 811S. When that doesn't work, they simply send the screwed up unit in for RMA.

The program that allows you to change the EEPROM, LtnFlash, is banned by Lite-On because so many people have tried the hack and failed. And what do they do when the hack doesn't work? They bitch about it at club cdfreaks.

That's why I'm waiting for the right method to shake out. It appears it has now with the V4 of the EEPROM mod.

Any links to updating the 411S to a 811S?
