Dvds not playing on Pc's and Laptops
on Jun 9, 2008 at 12:14:46 pm


Ive been working at my current company for 6months now and we have always had a problem with playing dvds on the works laptops. They use power dvd (i know its bad but thats all they are allowed to use!) we burn our dvds from dvd studio pro using varying mbs and data rate sizes and although all of them work on our dvd player and in mac laptops, we can never seem to get them to work perfectly on a windows laptop.

We make a master dvd and then duplicate in a microboards tower. We use Fujifilm printable cover dvds for use in the company. Ive tried using a lower bitrate, around 4mbs and it doesnt help. Ive tried importing the 8bit uncompressed file from final cut straight into dvd studio pro and ive tried using compressor.

Does anyone know of a reason why this is happening or is there anything possible to help solve the issue?

Please search the board, this is getting asked all the time.

Also everyone should define "not playing", doesn't even show up, doesn't start up, starts up but doen't play smoothly?
