    For some reason I cannot find any (free) media player (KMplayer, MPC, GOM, WM, etc) that will play my dvd+r disks. I record a tv show on my Panasonic dvd recorder. When I try to play the dvd+r on different media players on my computer I always just get a blank. Sometimes the media players will not even come up. Is the content of the tv shows somehow protected from being played? Is there a media player (free or paid) that will play dvd+r tv shows?
    thanks

    Two things to try first:

    1. Try DVD-R discs instead

    2. Make sure your DVD player finalizes the disc before you try playing in the PC

    When you finalize a disc you wont be able to add anymore content to it.

    If you want to know how to finalize your disc, click this link, select the model dvd recorder you have, then click on "view movie".
