Hmm, well i use itunes and i have got an 80 gig ipod video which i've had nearly 12 months. I have had this lap top a year. The other day i went to install two dvds onto the laptop to convert to itunes. The laptop does not recognise the discs, these discs were burnt on my old PC, the discs play in both my household DVD players but not in the laptop :-/ yes very confused is me :-/ i have heard that this can happen, does any boff have any ideas ???
I can help with starting a discussion, but cannot necessarily provide a solution. All I can think of is that your old PC used a different version of Windows to that installed on your laptop now, and the burned disks are thus not compatible - although they play on household equipment.
What is frustrating is that when new technologies are developed they are not standardised. I have many CDs with a video track which will play okay on the computer but won't on the TV - which is a reversal of your problem.
And I loaded up 300 tracks on to my Napster before I even had a home computer, but am scared to index them using Windows as you have to download them into memory and then re-load them. Jeremy Clarkson claimed that he had lost the entire contents of his iPod thus. So I am obliged to carry around a sheet of paper with my Napster with a list of the 300 tracks ! ::)
Looks like the laptop is +rw, but i'm sure that the PC (which i don't have anymore) was +/- , so when i burnt it to a disc i used a -R, so the disc needs to be copied to a HD and burnt to a +RW so that it can be viewed on my laptop, correct? :-/
