Easiest way is using Roxio - Toast
Where do you live? In the US NTSC is used, not PAL.

You were told correctly. Australia uses the PAL format so if the DVD player was purchased there that standard will be what is used. I suspect that the movie exported correctly but was burned as a data DVD rather than self playing movie DVD. What program did you use to burn the DVD? Can you describe the steps you gollowed.

Before you purchase Toast give Burn a try. It can create the correct type of DVD. I am not sure these instructions are for the current version but they should get you going in the right direction

Glad to help.

Just speculation on my part but Apple seems to think customers are moving away from DVDs to things like YouTube. Vimio, etc. Given the size of most of our media libraries they may be right.
