I have windows media player 11 and recently had a problem playing DVDs on my computer. After downloading cyberlink, these problems ceased with commercially recorded dvd movies, so I could play ordinary movies on it, but I still cannot play recordable dvds on it. ie DVD-R format DVDs. Do I need software to enable me to play these as well, if so, what do I need?

what's the origin of the recorded dvd's?

a standalone recorder? you would have to finalize the recording first(or close the session?)

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

SONY DVD-R 4.7GB ACCUCORE DMR47A3

Burning Program - Easyburner

A message that burning was complete appeared. Recording was finalised, and the disc ejected by the program itself.

I have also tried updating drivers for the _NEC_DVD_RW ND-2510A dvd drive (which supports cd+ & - recording and DVD + & - recording by the way). There are no new drivers available for it

Cyberlink says - no disc in drive when I try playing the recorded DVD-R disc, but runs normal DVDs just fine.

I have also tried VLC Player - but this doesn't play discs on my pc, nothing happens. It seems like my pc is not properly configured for some media players/media as quicktime also doesnt work

I burned a data dvd disk- is this incorrect then? Please suggest an alternative free program that I can use for burning discs, as easyburner doesnt appear to be a prog fro making video discs...
