Default Burning dvds for playback on TV

Ok, I got my cool new samsung lightscribe drive yesterday, and installed Nero today. I can do all kinds of cool burning things with Nero I found out. I just need to get them to work. I burned a couple .AVI files onto a DVD+R using the Make or modify DVD Video (VR). Well once I finished it all, none of my dvd players can read the disk. How should I do it next time? Different disk format or different file format? My friend says that DVD+R doesnt work in standard dvd players, but I think it does, I'm just not doing it right. What should I change?

Most dvd players use mpeg format for discs, so you will need to convert the avi files. Have a look here for loads of help http://forum.doom9.net/

Could someone here just give me a guide on how to do it using Nero? I thought maybe Nero would change the format. But it didnt. When I put the disk in my computer, and try and play it using windows media player 11, it says the disk is blank. When I put it in a dvd player, the player makes noises like its trying to read it but doesnt, so I assume its blank.

Well, I use a program called WinAVI video converter to convert files to DVD format. Then I use Nero to burn the dvd files.

I am using Nero. No luck, maybe I burned at too high a speed, but even still the computer should still find files on the DVD right?

Ok, Idid something to make it work now. I think maybe cause I finalized the disk, even though it said that some dvds players may not be able to play it than.
