Re: Question about converting X to DVD

Is this DVD player trying to play DVD's or are you putting the contents on the USB stick? If it's DVD discs, then that DVD player probably doesn't like the manufacturer or the process/dye used on that disc you burned. Particularly if you're using CMC Magentics disc like you find in most stores. Such as Verbatim's Life Series. The DataLife Plus series from Verbatim is not the cheap brand and is what I generally recommend people use when they have playback compatibility issues. Given these discs work on a PS4 but not on another DVD player, it does sound like a media incompatibility issue. Some DVD players' drives don't like certain manufacturers' discs/dyes, particularly the CMC junk. (Although, ironically, CMC now owns Verbatim!)

Over the years I have used some cheap supermarket DVD's. I made a lot of DVD movies for friends and hardly ever had any trouble with the end product. Although I don't know how long they will last.
