    If the copies play on your PC then the problem is most likely with your home player. Use Verbatim or Ty media and your problems might be very simply solved.:D

    Get DVD+R and booktype to DVD-ROM too to help. Verbatim DVD+R on sale right now.

    The Book Type is a field of four bits at the start of every DVD (in the physical format information section of the control data block) that indicates what the physical format of the disc is. Many devices will use this "Book Type Field" to determine how the disc should be treated.

    So if you get DVD+R, you can make the disc be treated as DVD-ROM, which will increase the amount of standalone players the disc will work in. Newegg has a hell of a deal right now for Verbatims at $30 per 100 DVDs.

    CloneDVD can compress too and make a DL fit onto a SL.
