    Hi,
    wonder if somebody can help.
    I have made a DVD-R out of a recorded DVD-RAM (Panasonic DMRe-55)
    following the guide provided by Rasczak using TMPGenc and then
    Nero 6 to burn to DVD-R.

    The resulting DVD-R (TDK 4,7 GB 4*) plays fine on the PC with Power DVD and also plays
    on my Philips standalone player DVD762, it won't however play
    on the Panasonic e55, i just get 'UNSUPPORTED' in the menu.

    Anybody knows why that is?

    Has it got to do with the fact that i did multisession burning?

    thanks,

    Could well be - if you do a multi-session burning it can affect the compatibility of the disk - odds are your disk doesn't quite conform to the DVD-Video standard as a result and thus it is hit and miss whether players will read it OK. My suggestion is to output your project from TMPG Enc Author and then burn the whole project in one go, preferably using the DVD-Video wizard that forms part of Nero. That gives you the best chance to create a compatible DVD disk that will work everywhere.

    thx Rasczak,
    will definitely do that from now on, with this project it's ok on the Philips
    in the bedroom, as it is only a compilation of 8 BBC2 programs recorded in
    LP so it's not so bad.
