    Guys I bought a DVD Van Halen Live, DTS version, its a DVD9 region 1 coded, it will not play on my Sony dvp nc600 dvd player, but will play on my computer, why will it not work on my dvd player? I'm kinda of new to this.
    Thanks

    Well, Home Theater Software would probably be a better place for this. Does it have a big label on it that says it's a DVD-9? If so it's probably a bootleg DVD

    Other than that, some discs have trouble with some players, and I would suggest exchanging it

    Yes it has a big round sticker that reads "original DVD9 quality", so it's a bootleg?

    99.9% definate that it's a bootleg. I have never ever run into a legit disc that advertises that it's on DVD-9, while bootlegs often advertise it

    Without seeing the disc I'd have to say its' definitely a bootleg also. I bet at the top of it is a great big red band that says DTS too. DTS is all the rage in Asia right now, and so are multilayer discs (many of their discs were lower quality, or had little or no extras, so a movie would fit fine on a standard disc.) If it's got a big DVD 9 sticker on the front, and the DTS banner across the top (especially if it also has a Dolby soundtrack on it as well) it's going to be a bootleg.

    Yep, those are two biggest signs of a bootleg, regarding the packaging.

    How can it be a bootleg if its dual layer? DVD-R/+R can only do singler layer. Also I have the DTS version of Scareface and it says DVD9:dual layer on the cover so can this be a bootleg as well?

    Thanks for all the responses. The seller is going to issue a refund to me. Please be wary of these items on eBay.
    As for the Scareface, YES, it is a bootleg.

    It used to be impossible for bootleggers to produce DVD-9 dual-layer DVDs, but where there's a will, there's a way! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Who am I kidding? If I see a live concert CD/DVD that I look the like of a market, I try it out and if the quality is good, I buy it. Why not? What are the odds that Bob Dylan will put out the Hard Rain concert? What's annoying is the bootlegging of stuff like Scarface - how much green did Universal lose while they put their own DVD on monatorium? And God knows they need the revenue.

    I'd never buy a bootleg of a movie, but I would of a rock concert on CDR/DVD, as chances are, it will be the only way to ever hear/see the show. But I do more trading than buying. But some stuff is hard to find.

    Posting the link is against HTF rules Charlie, instead send it to the MPAA http://www.mpaa.org or call 1-800-NO-PIRACY

    are you guys saying that all dvd9's are bootlegs?
    if so, is the expensive hong kong disc of HERO in the nice limited edition, fabric lined box that is about $50 a bootleg? if so, this concerns me. I buy mainly imports and a few of them that i have saw dvd9, and are nice looking editions, and are 2 disc with nice packaging and have real artwork on the face(s) of the disc(s)...
    anyone know the deal??

    Any of them that advertise the fact that they're DVD-9 are going to be boots.
