can the dvd-player play the format that the video file is in? Usually the problem is this or the dvd-player missing some codecs.

did you burn them as dvd format? or did you burn them as something like divx or xvid? regular dvd players won't play anything but dvd format, but you can buy ones that play divx, and xvid. you can download converters that convert files to dvd format suitable for burning and playing in a regular dvd player.

I have a similar problem,
I use nero 6 ultra edition and the nero dvd player will not play the dvd's it burned. all my home dvd players play them but not the nero player.
but the nero player works with other peoples dvds they made and store bought dvds.
I have to use my old Nvidia player or windows media player. its weird.
