Need help burning a DVD

By robo37 ·
Tags: Windows, Software
Hey I really need you help here guys.

I'm trying to make a DVD that can play on a DVD player/games console and DVDStyler looked like the best free software to use so I went with that.

The problem is it kept coming up with an error half way through the burning process so I just burned the ISO Image file it makes directly to a disc instead, but my DVD player/console won't recognise it!

So basically what I need to know before I waste anymore discs is this: is it the problem with the file format, or the burning process itself?

Thanks for any help, and any suggestions on a better way to burn the disc would be greatly appreciated.

Well, you need to check in several aspects:
1- DVD writer is working fine? Try to write something else on the DVD but approximately with the same file size data.
2- DVDs may be cause of problem sometimes we face issues with the DVDs.
3- Assuming that you have created ISO file properly, try to burn DVD / ISO with another software like Nero burning, Roxio, Power ISO, Magic ISO.

You may try other DVD burning software

Using exclusion method, from easy to difficult, first of all, software, you can try other software like WinX DVD Author, Ashampoo Burning Studio, BurnAware, etc. if not, it may be the problem of DVD writer, try slowing down buring speed.

Burning DVD

1. Basically, it's no problem to use ISO image to burn into a blank disc. If you suspect your ISO image file, there is likelihood that your ISO image is still copyright protected. You'd better have a check on your ISO image file source. In case the ISO image file is protected by DRM, the general DVD player couldn't playback it (region code also counts a lot).

In this case, you're advised to remove the protection from iso image first using makemkv (handbrake can't decrypt DRM) or winx dvd ripper platinum.
Both are great. Check the guide:

2. The tool DVDStyler you use might be problematic. Generally, if your game console (Xbox or PS4) supports DVD playback, it won't meet such failure. If so, mostly it's the output burned DVD disc to blame.
Any my personal suggestion is that you don't have to burn ISO image to DVD since the current Xbox One S has already ditched away the DVD drive. Ripping DVD to MP4 or MOV seems much more sensible.
