We just buy box sets when they are cheap and put the discs in to one of those disc holder carrier things which store easily. No messing about with anything then.

I thought at first it was because I had not finalized the dvd but it makes no difference. Some will pLay on the dvd recorder but others will not.
Three reasons come to mind Wendy why you can't play DVD+R disks in your laptop. First the DVD player doesn't support that format, secondly the media player you are using doesn't support them and thirdly the player just doesn't like the particular brand of disks that you have used.

If you know what make of DVD player is in your laptop then you can google it to find out if it will play DVD+R's. Also you need to look at the documentation for the DVD recorder you used to find out what format / codec it would have used when it made the copies. As for the media player then try using VLC media player which is free to download. You will need to check though whether you need to download any additional codecs depending on what codec the recorder used.

As for why some disks will not play back on the recorder they were burnt on sounds like bad disks or a bad recording. Are they a reputable make of disks? Even so, some players and recorders don't even like some reputable brands so it's often necessary to try different ones.

@siggie-your first description correctly states my problem. I copied files on the Panasonic pvr to a Western Digital, which I then connected by usb to the Avtex.
Realising after, researching, that Panasonic encrypt the files, the Avtex won't read them.
The Sumvision Cyclone Micro4 was connected between the hard drive and the Avyex in the hope that the Sumvision decoded most file types. But clearly not Panasonic encrypted files.
Am looking into your reference to secret system settings....

Changing the settings will only allow Avtex TV's to play other file formats (e.g. AVI), it will not allow the reading of encrypted files.

How my question degenerated into discussions about your bowels defeats me!
