Which media type is the DVD itself? DVD+R or DVD-R?

that's the question, it has no lavel on, only a silver layer.
You said you had Nero.  Put the disc into the drive you burnt it with and open nero's Info Tool. Click on "Disc" and you should get info on what type of media is inserted.

Nice, info tool is very helpful. This media is DVD-R, my dvd room supports it, so, any idea why it can not read it?

filesystem is ISO9660.

This is the error:


it says that it's unreadable, but i can read the dvd in the burner drive
There are allways differences in the quality of how DVD Drives (&CD Drives as well) have been adjusted. So you can always run into problems reading a disk written on another drive. There are also differences in the quality of your rawlings. Try another brand or batch. Sometimes you will be able to find comparisons in Computer Magazines, but you may also find those on the web...

Use RW-Media, they aren't much more expensive than R-Media and if something goes wrong you haven't wasted the Media.

hmmm, i think that even though i can no way tell you waht your problem is,

i can say, why on earth write to dvd-r?, have some fun writing to dvd+r, and see if the rom player reads the data

have a go , if nothing canges, must be that your dvd rom is not a good reader, or the nero software is not writing to your dvd disks very well

in that case, you may want to finds whats worse, dvd player or reader,

so have a go at makeing a disc with dvd rewriter, then play the disc on another computer, if that does not work, the nero sotware or dvd writer is most certainly to blame

if the disc can be read in some other dvd rom

then you've got some ruined dvd writer

hope this helps, and if not, good luck !!!

Use TDK dvds if you want to read it in other drives that the one where you created. Or you may try a newer dvdrom drive (try Plextor), because that one seems old (the newest dvdrom drives sipport +r and -r).

all you are right, i tryed dvd-r and dvd+rw with the same result (error).
but i still think that should be a way to write this old format, because there are some old drives still around.

this one is 10x dvdrom and 40x cdrom: not too bad...

crissand: why TDK? does this media have some special feature?

i'll be doing some research before closing this.

Thanks a lot.
TDK has the best media, there are benchmarks and tests that prove this. I never had problems with tdk media.
