    So after 3 or 4 hours of decoding, encoding, and burning, I finally have a DVD that won't play on my PC. What's the deal? I thought it would be a generic DVD? Windows won't even recognize that anything is in the DVD drive. My PB plays it fine, but was hoping my DVD would be pc compatible. Any ideas?

    Does it work on a regular DVD player?

    Hmm sounds like your PC doesnt have a drive than can read DVDs...

    Have you read the same brand of media in the PC before?

    Yes it seems to work on all other DVD players.

    My PC does have a DVD reader (I'm not a retard)... it seems to play every other kind of DVD fine.

    I'm not sure that my PC's DVD player has read this type of DVD before. But my buddy's cheap windows laptop can read it fine.

    Not sure what the deal is, it's almost like my DVD Writer (and reader) wants to edit the DVD as if it were blank. Any ideas?

    Many PC DVD players (particularly early ones) have trouble with either DVD-R or DVD+R, or both. Most do work with DVD-RAM, though, since that was the existing technology at the time it was made.
