Re: burning dvds wont play on dvd player
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.
