    I've been playing around with burning TV programmes to DVD using Nero with my NEC-2510 and have so far had mixed results. Whilst the PC plays everything as intended, my Sony 725 DVD player has only flawlessly played one disc - a film burned at 1x speed with no menu or other features. I'm using grey Datawrite 8x discs, writing at 1x or 2x. Is there a more reliable brand of DVD-R that I should be using? something I'm missing or is it just that the Sony, being an old player, doesn't like DVD-Rs?

    Any advice appreciated

    Probably.

    Have you tried DVD+R? Might be more acceptable to your Sony...

    www.blankdiscshop.co.uk always list compatible writers, plus search for info on the different dye compatibilty with standalon players. It's the dye that's important not the brand from what I've found, stick with a certain dye. I've found manufacturers change dye occasionally.
