Yea it would be nice to get more on a disc but I'm not complaining when i can usually average right around 180 mp3 files on a disc for in the truck lol.

I suggst you use some other DVD burner software. And before burning, you shoud know what DVD discs that your DVD player can support so that you can get the burned DVD videos accrodingly. Anyhow, I hope your problem can be solved as soon as possible.

Hi windows 7 lover,

Can you find any DVD PLAYER( not BLUE RAY ) that will play a music DVD disc- well maybe more than one- In talking to Sony they believed that none will do it - But maybe some very high end one might do it -- If you want to go that route, then it would be best to buy BLURAY which definitely does it. Spec descriptions about this seemed unclear to me.

Do you know of any specific DVD player that will actually do this ?

Roxio 11is one of the best burners out there and I don't think that change would make any difference.

Thanks for your reply , but the bottom line -- Get a blu ray and the problem is resolved-- Thanks again - Ralph

Hi ,

Can't play a burned music DVD on new DVD player , but it will play on A Blu-RAY DVD PLAYER-- the disc is DVD-R-


I realize that you are trying to help , but I believe that you do not understand the problem or maybe I did not
write it clearly - as such, your comments do not relate to the issue --- It is very easy to burn mp3's to a DVD ( and yes of course dvd-r ), but it will not play on a DVD PLAYER-- That is the issue -IT will without a doubt play on a BLURAY PLAYER--OOPS - ONE EXCEPTION -it will play on a portable DVD player because it comes with a screen.

You can burn it with any free burner, so it is not worth Paying $40 for the software that you mentioned.

Thanks for Your interest , but The problem is completely solved.


I made the disc on ROXIO from mp3's that I ripped from my regular Cd's.

Should it play on a regular dvd player or is this the norm ?

Thanks, Ralph

It is probably because of the type of DVD disc you use to burn DVD. DVD-R- is more suitable for older DVD player. For new one, you may need to change it.

Disc won't play in computer, does in CD player. How can I fix this?
I have some used audio CDs I want to rip. Some of them are scratched so much that none of my computers recognize them. However, regular CD players can read them fine. I'm thinking maybe the reason for this is that an error at 48x is 48 times worse than one at 1x. I tried to find some programs...
