Disk burned in DVD Studio Pro does not work on PCs

Hi,

I just put together a DVD using DVD Studio Pro 4.  It works wonderfully on mac, but there is no audio on the pc.  What could be causing this problem?  Could DVD Studio Pro be formatting the audio in an incompatible format?  Thanks for your timely response - I'm trying to get this out the door today or tomorrow.

You need to look at the settings in DVD Studio Pro. Most likely, the audio is Dolby Digital, which is supposed to be supported by all DVD Players. However, some Windows players will not decode Dolby Digital due to licensing restrictions. You can get around this by not compressing the audio to Dolby Digital, instead leaving it as uncompressd PCM. The trade-off here is that the audio now eats up 1.5Mbps of your available bandwidth and you'll need to apply more compression to your video in order to make everything fit on the disc. this may result in lower picture quality.

What is the Windows Player you're using, and what do the preferences in DVD SP say about the default audio compression format?
