It doesn't play any DVD’s prerecorded and recorded by me personally. I have changed the settings several times but still the same. It just says "loading disc......" then says no disc
It plays audio CDs fine, but it should play DVDs it is a DVD player.
Here is my car DVD player what I brought two weeks ago:
Kia Sportage car DVD player
Does anyone know if there is any way to watch iPod movies on the DVD player in the car?

Hi Megan, when recording your DVD did you 'finalise' the DVD? Unless you actually tell the DVD to 'finalise' you usually can't play the DVD on any other player other than the one it was recorded on.

Hi, I have also found that DVD's recorded on DVD+R disc will not play in many players, I use DVD-R disc and they seem to be Ok,
Cheers Des.

Hi Megan, I'm assuming the pre-recorded dvd's (bought one's) play ok on a dvd player connected to a tv, if so check if there is a switch on the dvd unit where you can select "PAL", "PAL" is the video system or standard we use here in Aust, also check the units menu/setup to see if "PAL" is selected.

Do the burnt dvd's play ok on a dvd player that is connected to a tv? If not, make sure when burning a dvd you do as was already mentioned...use DVD-R discs, finalise the disc (meaning you are not going add further material at a later date) and select PAL as the dvd standard.

Good luck,
John

While not DVDs, I found that my Nissan CD player wouldn't play my own burnt CDs, but would play bought ones fine. My home-burn CDs would play fine on my home CD player. Seems the burning was not deep enough into the disc, which the Nissan didn't like, but when I did a slow burn, say about 1/4 of the max burn speed, the CDs would work fine. A later CD burner resulted in no probs at all.

So try burning a DVD at a slower speed and see if that fixes the problem.
Also try using a different version DVD; ie -R instead of +R or vice versa. This sometimes affects DVD players.

Of course, I don't condone copying of music/videos, but I don't like to take out my good versions into the bush to get trashed. :D

cheers,
Gerry
