    I am trying to burn my film footage onto a dvd, i have used tmpgenc and tmpgenc DVD author to create the files, but whenever i burn them onto a DVD-r or DVD+r, using nero, then the disk will not run in ,y DVD player and it shows bad disk on the display....

    And yet if i burn it onto a DVD+rw it will work,

    does anyone have any ideas why it wont work on a DVD-R/+R

    One DVD player here will only work with RW media, one will work only with -R Media...

    Its all to do with the laser output and the reflectivity of the media.
    Sometimes the brand of media has an effect.

    There is no "standard" only variations.
