    What type of disk are you trying? If it is a DVD-RAM it will not play in other players (unless it is a Panasonic or JVC model). You will also have trouble playing it on your PC unless you have a compatible drive (from LG, Hitachi, Panasonic, Samsung, Toshiba and others).

    If it is a DVD-RW or DVD-R have you finalised the disk?
    If your using DVD-RW disks (and you have finalised the disk) why not try DVD-R as these disks have significantly higher compatibility. Also check compatibility of the DVD players your trying to play your disks on by looking at the online database here.

    What brand of media are you using? Some dirt cheap media doesn't work as well as more expensive, branded disks.

    Tosh doesn't put an AUDIO_TS folder on discs therefore lots of players wont play without this folder even though it is normally empty.

    I copy to RAM then create DVD on PC, but takes time as RAM uses VR mode.
    You can copy to DVD-R, copy this disc on a PC with an empty AUDIO_TS folder and it will work but you then use two discs for each recording. I've not tried DVD-RW yet but presume Tosh records in same way on RW as R therefore you could copy on RW, use PC to copy to blank DVD-R and add an AUDIO_TS folder before closing the disc.
