I have a Netflix subscription, and I am forced to burn about 50-60% of the DVDs in order to play them in my PS3. The disks from Netflix simply aren't recognized. Sometimes, if I eject, insert, eject, insert, eject, insert, about 4-5 times, it will finally recognize the disk. However, most times, even after trying numerous times, the disks aren't recognized. The only solution I have found is to burn the DVD and play the burned copy. Any suggestions?
This is the best way to watch movies on your ps3 especially if you have them on your pc.
It is very easy to use without any complicated setup.
Netflix in the EU does not USE DVDs.
This means you the OP are US based.
From my under standing from "The US forums" at community.us.playstation.com, Netflix rental DVDs are NOT retail DVDs but are Specific RENTAL versions pressed for them. This may be causing a conflict, When the DVD lense trys to read the SECOND layer of the DVD9s in the PS3.
DVD+/-R Are normaly Single layer as I don't expect you are using Expensive DVD DL-R for burning.
!gnore netflix and play Your Own to keep DVD9 And DVD5s and then report the Results.
DVD9 DL are the norm
DVD5 are cheap produced Film DVDs and normaly the Extras DVD of a Box set.
Some Box sets will normaly say Which is DVD 5/9
