My made DVD's won't work in Bluray machines or on PC's

Hello Guys

I have made some DVD's and they play fine on DVD players and Mac computers but won't play properly on a PC and won't play at all in a Bluray player.

My workflow:

SD Footage captured into FCP
Edited with correct sequence settings (matching the clips)
Exported using quicktime, current settings, self made movie
Open quicktime movie with compressor
Drag on DVD 90 mins best and compress
Drop into DVDSP
Make a menu and burn to disc using default settings
Verbatim -R Disc

The disc works beautifully on all DVD players and mac computers but it stutters and freezes on a PC (windows media player) and in a bluray player it just says 'no disc'

Any ideas why they won't work on the PC and in the bluray player?

Any help would be fab?

Cheers,
Mich

Might be the quality of the media, are you using DVD-R or DVD+R or DVD-RW?

Failing that, are you setting a region code or something? And how is the DVD finalized?

I am using a Verbatim -R

I burn the disc straight out of DVD Studio Pro so I think that finalises it at the same time

The Bluray player I am testing it on says:

The player may not play certain DVD-R because of the disc type or recording conditions
If a DVD-R has not been recorded properly in a DVD video format it will not play
A DVD-R will not play if it has been recorded with a bit rate that exceeds 10mbps

My workflow is as I wrote above so it should all work

Which player is it? Its definitely a player issue since youve already testing it on several other platforms

Hey

So I have been scouring the internet for similar problems and trying the suggestions and I have the answer woohoo, it was on this thread:

https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3096117?start=0&tstart=0

When I was burning the disc it was saying ' a video_ts directory already exists and I was hitting reuse instead of delete and I hadn't assigned the build to the project folder it was set to default which meant it was saved in library/cache. So I deleted the stuff in the video_ts folder in cache and then went to burn the disc again, I saved the files to the project folder and I hit delete instead of reuse when the pop up box came up and now the DVD is playing in the bluray machine....Problem Solved.

I don't understand why this makes a difference and why the disc played on DVD and mac and not bluray before but by doing this it now works on everything YEY

Thanks

Makes me hate Apple even more! HD DVD should have been removed years ago from DVDSP
