Power DVD gives me "Unknown File format" error

Get AnyDVD HD and copy any DVD or Blu-ray disc with ease!

This is a puzzling problem I hope someone can help with. I have a desktop and a laptop computer. If I burn any movie with XCopy V1.3, the movie plays fine on the desktop computer (using PowerDVD) and on the TV. However, the backups will not play on my laptop. When you click play, you get an "Unknown File format" error code 89030000. The only DVD's that I can play on my laptop are the orginals.

What's interesting is that I can make copies using DVD Decrypter and IfoEdit tools and the backup copies work fine.

Does anyone have any ideas?

I am havng similar problems, it could be a problem with the media that is being used it may be that the dvd-r you are using is not good or not compatible, I am trying to use different media to find out if one works, then I will just stick with that one brand.

I am using MeritLine +RW disks. I have also tried Memorex +RW as well with the same results. I'm hesitant to test with +R because I don't need any more coasters:)

If I try to use Windows Explorer and just doubleclick the main VOB file to start, I see a momentary glimpse of a screen that says" This player is incompatible with the region on this disc". Any ideas?

Under Advanced Options, change the Player Compatibility to Alternate (UDF). I had the same error with PowerDVD and this fixed the problem for me.

I'm using:
WinXP Home
AthlonXP 1800
HP DVD200i drive
