Hi, I have been having trouble trying to burn a video, which is in MPEG 2 format, to a DVD so it will run in my DVD player. I am using Burn, and following instructions, but it just will not play. I am using the correct discs, as far as I can tell. I have used Burn before successfully to make DVDs which play fine.
Does anybody have any thoughts on this? I have really no idea what I could be doing wrong. The DVD I made with Burn will play just fine in my iMac but not in the DVD player. Thanks for your help.
QUOTE Thanks

What are you using to play the dvd on your Mac? Quicktime or DVD Player?

That's good as it shows that you've made a video dvd rather than a data dvd. Unfortunately some DVD machines are fussy about homemade dvds and the brand/type of dvd used

I did find that i had the settings in Burn set to Pal rather than NSTC, but when I changed it, it didnt make any difference. I have used the exact same discs in the same DVD player and they worked fine. I dont know, the whole thing is a bit of a mystery.
