hey
i am trying to play some Mini DVD-R i got with pictures from a friend's trip

when i put it on my TV's DVD player it shows a menu where i can navigate the pictures

but when i put it in my PC's DVD drive it shows up empty.

why is that?


my drive looks pretty generic but according to windows and to my recipe it's NEC DVD RW nd 4550a. X16
the mini DVD-R itself is by silver line


thanks, i don't use DVD much so my first guess was about zones (i know my drive is not zone free) but the program DVD Region+CSS Free didn't make any difference i think

Try to read it with IsoBuster (free mode).  You could try updating your NEC drives firmware.  NEC drives have never been very good readers.  Perhaps a combo of IsoBuster and a firmware update would do some good.

the firmware update didn't help but isobuster can somehow read the data on the disk

i guess my NEC drive is just a bit problematic


thanks

NEC's are notoriously bad readers... decent burners though.  I had an NEC ND-3500A a couple years back and had read problems with my DVD±R media, though, at the time, my Toshiba and LITE-ON DVD-ROM drives had no problems at all reading the same disc.
