Default do I have Codec problem

I got rid of two 8X DVD RW drives and replaced them with 16X. Now, I could not watch DVD from PC after I recorded them from the new 16X drive in the older 8X dvd drive.

Yet, it is playable with home DVD player. What causes this??

at what speed are you writing the DVDs; most media has 8x limit

there are only a handful 12x available, and forget about 16x

It defaults at 16X write; and without any provision for change using DVD Shink.

The playback is okay with Home DVD player; and the 16X DVD Drive ... not in any old ones. The funny part is that it works on 5 years old home DVD player.

You recorded the original DVD with the new 16x ?
You recorded the DVD with the 16x from the 8x ?
Puzzled ?

Had a similar problem, problem solved after installing the windvd-software and uninstalling it afterwards.
Something to do with hardware-software mpeg encoding ... forgot the technical explanation ... my memory is corrupted heavily ... scuzzi

Reinstalling winDVD may solve the problem?

I figure if the disk is playble in an older home DVD player, it has to be okay with older 4,6,8,10X DVD Drives.

I will try..... freaking strange.

Yes, copied to HD and moved to DVD format.

Two DVD drives in one machine ..
1 DVD 8X
1 DVD R/W 16X

after reording, the 16X drive playback fine but not the 8X drive.

So you can playback your DVD's

What is the problem then *exactly* ?

Still cannot figure out first sentence.

Take the 8x DVd out of your system.

the copy you BURNED on DVD, can you COPY those files, on that 16x DVD to your HDD afterwards?

does that work? burning at 16x is very fast, and if the media can not keep up you'll get problems.

Trying something different and it works ...... reconfiming; will post afterward.

Copy of burnd DVD playable using Home DVD player, not playable with PC DVD drive <16X, but playble with 16X = no good = must have logical answer.

8X DVD works with original DVD.
