This has really confused me and cost me a lot of money.
I took on a job to duplicate a DVD with REGION 0 in the UK. I produced what I thought an exact replica of two DVD's all playing in a UK DVD player and playing in a US DVD player without any issues. At least I have been told by my client that the original DVD is playing without issues in the US as well but I can't confirm that my self.
So this is what I have done using a MICROBOARDS CX-1 duplicatior:
1. Made a one off copy and tested which worked fine
2. Ran a batch of 300 on the DVD duplicator along with printed a label
3. Tested randomly on my PC DVD player
4. Tested randomly on my DVD player at home (UK bought)
I delivered this to my client with a DVD cover and DVD boxes which he took with him to the US - now he claims none of them are playing in the US DVD players and comes up with "DISC ERROR"
The DVD's being used are TAIYO YUDEN DVD-R16X so they are top range as well.
I ran three different originals, one which I created my self from a studio recording. My client claim no copy is working. The latest one I did myself I had to give him in PAL not NTSC so I did tell him they will not work, hence only made 10 of that original.
So I'm very confused and obviously my client lost a lot of confindende in me having carried almost 100kg over the Atlantic........
Does anyone have any theory on what is wrong ?
