I made a backup disk of a movie tonight. The backup won't play in my 6 year home DVD player and in my 05 nissan auto dvd system. But it works fine in my 1 year old home player.

Using Nero

Any suggestions

Your player in the Nissan might not be compatible with the type of DVDR you are using. See if you can borrow different DVDRs and try that. Thats what I would do since your other player reads it fine.

I"m using DVD+R.

Alot of older players want a DVD-R disc, if they'll play copies at all...try picking up some DVD-Rs and see what happens.

Yeah, try DVD-R media. DVD+R has more compatability problems in my experience.

My newer Apex plays everything.

But I've got a several-year-old JVC that is extremely finicky. It only likes + media, and only certain brands of blanks. Plus, if I burn off an ISO it pukes, so I have to bust the image and let Nero recreate the file system on the disc.

To answer your question, DVD players more than a few years old tend to have trouble with some DVD±R copies. Newer players are better.
