My DVD burner, a 300n, won't read DVD +R any longer. I downloaded and installed the latest firmware from HP, and ran a DVD cleaner program three times. When I try PC Dr diagnostic software, it reads commercial DVD's and CD's fine, but wants me to only insert a +RW DVD, and doesn't even see a plain +R. Just ejects the tray and asks for the +RW again.Have you seen this and is there any fix?

Also, we bought a Samsung DVD recorder for off the air TV recording.
It produces file type VRO, which isnt' seen by the DVD either...the Samsung takes -R dvd's. My wife's machine reads them fine, so I know they're on the disks...although I can't copy them to the computer...get error message every time.

My son is being recruited for football and I want to make some DVD's to send to prospective coaches. Managed to get the games taped off the air, and have some film from DV camera and from the school. Can't seem to get them all into one place and put together in a package that I can edit title and burn.

Lots of questions.
HELP!

Thanks

My older Pioneer gives me a choice in set-up, either VR or standard Video Mode (with VOB's). Check yours.

You might be able to simply change the VRO extension to .mpg and see if that works.

You might also try this app. Use the mpeg-> mpeg setting and tick 'fix MPEG errors'. and see if it works.

Your burner may be shot. Find it in Device Manager-> right click-> choose 'Uninstall' and reboot.

Still nothing. I get a little CD 'icon' near the mouse pointer while it ties to read the disk I've inserted, then nothing. It can play commercially recorded DVD movies, and reads and plays audio CD's. I downloaded the newest driver from HP, but it hasn't shown up when I go to device manager and look at the driver version. Roll back driver gives a dialog box that there is no older version.

Thanks for your reply
