Cant See Image on RW Disc

Hi I have just recorded a tv prog onto my Toshiba Dr19dtkb dvd recorder useing a Memorex DVD-RW Disc. I then tried it in my computer and the only saw this-desktop.ini and the rest of the dvd-rw shows as empty!
Before removing the disc from my dvd recorder I did play the disc and it definatly had the desired recording on it,


What gives guys I thought I had cracked it!
How do I sort this out please?

Does this happen when you put the disc into other computers also? It is likely that the computer does not know how to read the type of disc created by the DVD recorder.

I've had customer with similar problems. One had a Panasonic PVR, ands the discs it created will only read on other Panasonic systems. It tuend out to be settings on the PVR which ad to be changed to allow for the recording of UDF discs.

Perhaps your Toshiba needs a similar settings change?
