    i have recorded a program off the tv in dvd - video mode on a dvd - rw i have finalised the disc so it would play on other dvd players and the comp but it only works on the dvd player that recorded it, what have i done wrong? what do i need to do to get the comp to read the disc it says the disc is either corrupt or the wrong format?

    You recorded using a DVD recorder then....

    Could try different make of disks but it could be that the recorder is just set up that way.

    yes i used a dvd recorder, the discs i used are the ones tried and tested by the manufacturer of the recorder and it states that the dvds once finalised will be able to play in other dvd players and on the comp
