Strange DVD

Discussion in 'DVD Video' started by E. Barry Bruyea, Nov 22, 2006.

  1. A few days ago, my wife was in our local library and saw the Digitally
    Remastered DVD of "Cleopatra". She checked it out because she hadn't
    seen the movie in a very long time and thought she'd like to watch it
    (especially without commercials). I decided to copy the DVD. I put
    it in one of my DVD units, but the computer would not recognize that
    there was a disk inserted. I tried several times, with no success, so
    I put it in my DVD burner (an LG) and the same thing occurred. It was
    a two disk set, so I tried the other one, same thing. I then put it
    my DVD player and it played fine. I cleaned both disks and in the
    process I noticed a 'spiraling' coming out from the centre of both
    disks that was quite prominent. No big deal, but does anyone have any
    idea why my player will recognize & play the DVD, but neither of my
    computer based units would even recognize the disk. Usually, it's the
    other way around. Also, the 'spiraling' design appears unusual.
